Game Day Garments: Little Rock Edition


I’m back with another Game Day Outfit. Last week I showed you the maxi dress I made and this week I have a skirt and t-shirt combo to share.


The skirt was a $4 Goodwill find and I simply shortened it by cutting off some length and hemming the bottom. I got the belt for super cheap at Goodwill too. Here’s what it looked like before.


That’s me doing my best Jessa Duggar impression. Get it? Anyone?

I made the necklace using this tutorial. It was extremely easy and a cheap way to spruce up a plain white shirt.


The Razorbacks play two games a year in Little Rock and we always make the 3 hour trip back home. We tailgate all day and then cheer on the Hogs all night. We spent the majority of the day with our friends Autumn and Wes. Remember their wedding? Can you believe that was six months ago?

We also ran into some of our other friends like bridesmaid Christine. Fun Fact: the first time I ever drank was at Christine’s house in 8th grade. We chugged red boxed wine (we stole it from the fridge after her parents went to bed) and I immediately threw up. Good times.


Bee Eff Effs For Eva.

The boys played Ladder Ball. Don’t ask me the rules. No idea.


  Arguably, the highlight of the day was when the guy tailgating next to us came over and said he had cooked jambalaya for 50 people and only 5 showed. He insisted we come ‘take some off his hands.’

Don’t mind if I do random guy, don’t mind if I do.

Our section was supposed to wear white (hence my white tee) but I was a little skeptical that everyone else had gotten the memo.

Thankfully, I was wrong. The stadium looked so cool and patriotic.


An awesome aerial shot by Dad sent me. Sorry, don’t know the source.


Do you guys like the Game Day Outfit posts? Did anyone even make it this far?
