Game Day Outfit: Baseball Cap Glam


Today's post is a combination of 2 of my favorite things: A blogger collaboration and a game day outfit. I met Danielle last year at LuckyFABB/NYFW and we've been buds ever since. I love Danielle because she's witty, gorgeous, loves sports and so down to earth. Her posts are full of fun, fashion and humor. Plus she & I shared a love for PLL. So when she contacted me about a possible collaboration, she came up with the brilliant idea of a Game Day post showdown. You see, 1 flaw of hers (haha) is that she's a Miami Hurricanes fan, one of Florida State's biggest rivals. We play each other this weekend and it's a MAJOR game. We're both ranked in the top 10 and to say I'm stoked about it would a major understatement.

Danielle also challenged me to tackle The Baseball Cap trend, one that I've, frankly, been nervous to test out. So after you check out my outfit make sure you hop on over to Lou What Wear and check her look out (ummm she nailed it!)

State Traditions Florida State Tallahassee Baseball Cap c/o
Zara Metallic Peplum Cardigan (old but exact option here in black at L.Mae Boutique)
Express "Stella" Skinny Jegging (old)
Aaron Ashe White Silk Tank
Studded Heels via eBay || GiGi New York Uber Clutch in Saddle Pebble || ILY Couture sideways cross necklace & arrow ring || J. Crew Classic Bangles || Michael Kors Watch

Now this whole baseball cap thing is a major step out of my comfort zone. Don't get me wrong, I'm a sports-watching, beer-drinking, could even play video games kind of gal. But I love my sparkle... and my high heels.

I really wanted to have fun with this challenge and took some pointers from the gorgeous Samantha Ponder and fabulous bloggers like Cathy [Poor Little It Girl] & Christine [Hello Fashion Blog]. I stayed true to my style keeping my sky high heels and sparkly sweater in tow. To be honest, the hat gave my glam game day getup just the right amount of tomboy swag. I added on my fav GiGi uber clutch and some gold jewelry for girly flair.

It actually wasn't that hard since the State Traditions hats are really fabulous. It's a really simple design of the State's shape in your school's colors but it's an easy and stylish way to give your look that menswear punch. Plus.. they have about a bazillion options! You should also check out the cute selections for your guy like Game Day bow ties or Gingham plaid shirts.

Don't forget to check out Danielle's outfit... and Go Noles!!!
