Sponsor Spotlight: Charming Lucy

I'm excited to have Susan from Charming Lucy guest posting here today.  Susan is an amazing Mom to her beautiful daughter Lucy, Christian, has great style,  and is also working on sewing some really great things. Yesterday I shared with you what I wore to a Huskers game, and today Susan is going to give some great tips on he to dress for Game Day too. So without further ado, here's Susan!

I am both honored and blessed to be guest posting for my friend Ginny today! Ginny is the super thrifty, always fabulous, beautiful friend who blogs at My New Favorite Outfit. When she asked me to guest post on her amazing blog, I jumped at the opportunity! The first thing that popped into my mind was a post which would offer you a few ideas for fall football outfits. I live in Ohio - the land of the Ohio State Buckeyes. If you are born in my state, you have scarlet and gray blood running through your veins. We live for football season here!

 Before I get into the meat of my post, I would like to share a bit of information about myself, so you can get to know me a bit better. I am a new blogger. I started blogging in May as a way to encourage myself to dress in something other than running pants. I have a daughter, whom I adore. If you read my blog, you will quickly figure that out. She is my life. I try not to be the mom dressed in pajamas at drop-off (although I have been before). I am super outgoing, and because I work at home, I really wanted to make some connections with other women who share similar interests.

 I read so many blogs that I am embarrassed to share them all with you. I can't choose favorites(: Lately I am loving the fall trends of leather, peplum, and graphic sweaters. I am also a scarf addict. I try to stay clear of any trend that will make it appear that I am trying to act my daughter's age - totally humiliating for a middle school girl (not to mention her mom!).

 The best thing about blogging is all of the fabulous friends I have made. I have friends who text me when they are shopping and see something that they think I will love. Then they buy it and mail it to me! I do the same for my blog buddies. Crazy, but true. Be yourself, and you will meet others who love you for who you are. The blog world is a wonderful place to hang out.

 Now, on to the meat of this post! It tends to be hot for the first game or two of the season, and then we quickly transition into fall here in the Buckeye state. These outfits will work for the games during which the field is not covered in a blanket of snow. It tends to be pretty frigid here during the latter part of football season, so you may need to add gloves and a hat, and substitute a puffy jacket for the vest. I love a statement necklace for game day! I tend to wear my Buckeye necklace on game days, but any statement necklace adds flavor to a football outfit! Although I am a football fan, I am still a girl, and I like to dress like one(: I love this style for game day! You can switch up the plaid blouse so the colors match your favorite team!

Great job, Susan, and ladies take a minute to stop by Charming Lucy  and say hi to the sweet Susan! 


  1. I love Susan's blog! She is really sweet and a fellow Buckeye, so I was glad to see her gameday outfit too.

  2. I really like the game day outfit you created! The plaid and puffer vest look great with the boots! I just ordered plaid shirts and can't wait to wear my puffer vest with them.

  3. I love wearing yoga pants to watch sports games... Yoga pants are just the best. ;-)

  4. I love your outfit with the plaid!
    And of course, this makes me wish I went to a college with an actual football team. :P

  5. Glad I found Susan's blog since I am also from Ohio =)

  6. i need to get some pleated shirt as well :)

  7. I Love the Plaid Shirt & the Rosette Necklace. Great giveaway.

  8. I'm not much of a sports person, but when the occasion arises, my game day attire is some combination of blue and yellow (my alma mater's colors). Usually a pair of skinny jeans, a yellow cardigan, and a tee!

  9. LOL, i must be more tired and hungry than i thought
    i first read Lucky Charms, not Charming Lucy

  10. nice necklace

  11. haha my husband is a buckeye fan, and i am a wolverine!!

    Sandy a la Mode

  12. Love the necklace! Thanks for pointing me towards Charming Lucy!

  13. I'm not one to dress up on game days-- in undergrad, I wore a knock-off of our team's jersey (in kids' sizing) and either white shorts or a denim skirt (that was big then). I love your ideas!

  14. I love her blog and go buckeyes!!! I'm also from the state of Ohio!! Love these ideas of statement necklace and comfy and warm shoes for sure! My feet get sooo cold at football games! I love football season! :)

  15. My game day must have is a team shirt. I like supporting my team by wearing one of their shirts but sometimes it's hard to find a nice girly one that I like.
