Friday’s Fancies | Tennessee Style

I’ve been pretty silent in the blog world about my love for the TENNESSEE VOLUNTEERS!!!!!!! I’ve had a long-time love affair with that school and TENNESSEE FOOTBALL! Am I from Tennessee? No. Did I go to school at Tennessee? No. Did my family? No. So, why am I such a Vols-fanatic? It’s a long story. And please, just know that it has nothing to do with Peyton Manning.

BUT…

I’ve been a fan for about thirteen or so years now and that will never change!

I said it’s GREAT to be a TENNESSEE VOL!

Here’s a fun tid-bit about me -- I was actually moments away from transferring to Tennessee in college. I had my transcripts turned in and everything but decided to play it safe and stay at my in-state school.

That said, today I’m showing my school spirit while I link up for Friday’s Fancies over at {long distance loving}

Since I can’t magically appear at Neyland Stadium, I’ll most likely be watching the game at a restaurant or in front of my big screen. So, the UT-shirt and cropped jeans are PERFECT! I threw in the nude heels because they’re classy and add a little feminine touch to the rest of the outfit while not going over the top. Tennessee Orange accessories are a must, duh :) Oh, and don’t worry… I won’t be wearing the helmet. Or will I??

In case you can’t already tell, I don’t mess around when it comes to team colors. Go big or go home, friends!!

Fingers crossed that the Vols can beat the Gators this weekend for the first time since 2004! Eek! Tune in to CBS to find out!

What college team is your favorite? Any fellow Rocky Top fans out there?? :)

Super cute! I'm going to Tenn next month and we are trying like crazy to get Vols tickets...but they are playing LSU so I doubt it's do-able :( At the very least we are going to tailgate. SOOOOO excited :)

Catherine said...

Hi, I just stumbled upon your blog. I love this outfit combo! And this may sound silly, but I've always liked the checkerboard pattern of Tennessee's endzone. And I know someone who went there who is really cool. ;)

XO,
