All Tied Up…..Latest Edition of the Game Day Runway!

Technically it’s fall…..but if you are in the south, it’s cool in the morning, warm during the day and chilly in the evening. Dressing for this crazy weather can prove challenging, especially on game day! Not to worry….I will have you dressing Properly Stylish while staying warm or cool…..or both! 🙂

The perfect accessory to keep you looking Properly Stylish while seasons transition, is the scarf!

There are so many different ways to wear a scarf! And, the scarf is the perfect addition to almost any outfit!

Hands down, one of my favorite types of scarves is the pashmina. Taking a cue from some of our favorite starlets, I think every woman should own one….or two! They will never go out of style! From dinner with your beau to tailgating with the girls, the pashmina is the perfect accessory to every outfit!

It’s no secret that OLE MISS gals go all out when cheering for their REBELS!  Adorned in gorgeous blue and red, this is a color match made in heaven! Adding a scarf to your favorite outfit is great way to keep you cozy and stylish while tailgating!

 This outfit is a perfectly casual option for game day! But, it needs a little something extra. Give this ensemble an instant boost with a scarf!

Timeless, warm and oh so wearable!

The scarf is versatile, chic and an easy affordable way to update your game day look!

Have fun with this great accessory!

…..And remember to put the Proper Style in your Game Day Ensemble!

It’s HOT Again…in October!

Well, no surprise! It’s hot again, in October….in the South, at least! If you’re anything like me you are rummaging through your closet looking for something to wear! Looking for an outfit that can keep you warm and cool at the same time, while looking Properly Stylish can prove to be a challenge!  May I suggest an easy ensemble perfect for girl’s night out or a date with the hubby?

This little number has a lot of edge! Try pairing a comfy sweater with an edgy skirt and killer shoes! Don’t forget the clutch and jewelry! Leave the tights at home and show a little skin. The sweater will keep you cozy and showing a little leg is just the right amount of sexiness to keep your man wanting more! 🙂

If you style is more simplistic, opt for a simple sweater to go over a simple dress. Accessories are everything with this ensemble! Have a little fun with a statement necklace and a pair of neutral wedges. Neutral colors keep this outfit clean and classic!

Dust off that tulle skirt….I know you all have one lying around!

Tulle Skirt + Sweater = High End Style

The tulle skirt is the lead role in this ensemble. So, keep the sweater and shoes simple (nude pumps would be perfect)! This look is great for a fancy dinner and a night at the theatre!

I will be pulling out my own version of this outfit for a night out with the hubby! I would love to hear all about your night out in this ensemble…..do share!!

Accessories are a major fashion tool! They have the ability to instantly transform an outfit. While I love all accessories, there is nothing more instantly transformative than jewelry.

Falling for Boots!

It’s college football season and there are a number of things true about college football fans: Southern Belles are real sweet until college football season comes along, college football is a major religion, you should never get married during college football season, and only in the South is college football season an excuse to dress up! All of these are true, especially the last one. There’s nothing like a little school spirit to kick up your game day ensemble!

As much as we love summer, we’re willing to welcome fall back into our lives for two reasons: Fabulous Fall Boots and College Football!

Boots are a great way to look amazing and stay comfortable from tailgating to over-time! With so many different styles trending for the fall, there’s a boot out there for everyone! Where do you find great boots at a great price? I have scoured the internet for Fall’s Best Boots Under $100!

1. The Equestrian Riding Boot is a must have for this fall! The Madden Girl LUNDUNN knee high boot is a perfect addition to any outfit. Priced at $77 on Zooshoo.com, it’s a perfect for your fall collection!                      http://www.zooshoo.com/product_p/lundunnbrown.htm

2. The Cowboy Boot is one of the most popular trends on game day. The Sanguine, another great design by Steve Madden from his line Madden Girl can be found on Zappos.com. Pair this boot with a feminine dress or skinny jeans.

3. The BP ‘Trolley’ Ankle boot is one of my favorite styles. It pairs perfectly with jeans! Get it at Nordstrom.com for $99.95


4. The Wedge Lace-Up Bootie from Colin Stuart will instantly elevate your style this season! Front laces, buckles, and a sky high wedge heel will add a little edge to any ensemble. At $89 this shoe is a steal from Victoriassecret.com.


5. Sole Society ‘Josslyn’ Platform Bootie is an amazing find at Nordstrom.com for $59! This platform bootie propped up with a chunky heel adds style and sophistication to those skinny jeans.


For all of you Georgia Bulldog Fans!!

This is one of my favorite looks taking college football season by storm! Pair your favorite dress and leather jacket with cowboy boots. Cowboy boots give a polished look to jeans and a more down-to-earth feel to dresses! This look will have you looking amazing and while staying comfy.

You can’t go wrong with skinny jeans, a comfy shirt, edgy boots and sexy curls!

A new pair of trendy boots is the best way to celebrate fall and college football! Every woman should have a pair…..or two, or three! 🙂 Get out there and find the perfect boot to fit your style!

Game Day Runway…..Roll Tide Roll!

Long gone are the days of throwing on an old t-shirt and jeans to hit up your favorite college football game! Say goodbye to drab and boring football game fashion and say hello to the Game Day Runway!

Every girl wants to look good on game day…..that’s where all of the guys and cameare, of course! 🙂 It’s also fair to say the guys want to make a snazzy impression on the ladies. Whether you are there for the game, the tailgating, the beer, the ladies or the gentlemen, what better way to show your team spirit than by dressing to impress!

It’s no secret the Alabama Crimson Tide is Amazing! I am a huge fan of Alabama football! Having attended the U of A I have seen my share of great game day fashion……and some not so great game day fashion! Not to worry! I am going to teach you how to wear crimson red, white and houndstooth with the Proper Style!

There’s nothing sexier than a girl in a football jersey! This ensemble is for all of my hard core fans out there! Throw on a stylish pair of skinny jeans, a FORM FITTING Alabama Jersey, and Converse Chucks! The simplicity of this look allows you to have a little fun with hair and makeup. Put your locks in a simple but fun ponytail and rock a dramatic smokey with a neutral lip. Gentlemen, you too can rock this look…..minus the skinny jeans, ponytail and makeup! 🙂 This look is sure to have you cheering on the Crimson Tide while looking Game Day Chic!

A touch of class definitely has it’s place on game day! Nothing says “southern belle” quite like a strapless, sweetheart necklined, crimson red dress adorned with fabulous accessories!  I love houndstooth, but to much of it can overwhelm an ensemble. Add the perfect amount of our signature print with a houndstooth clutch! Compliment the look by wearing Crimson Red lipstick and keeping the eye makeup neutral. Some of you are thinking….”A dress to a football game?” I say, “Yes MA’AM!” Sundresses in the proper cut, length and fit are a comfy way to take Game Day fashion to the next level!

Put a little Prep in Your Step! I love this preppy Alabama sweater! Paired with a simple chiffon blouse, skinny gray jeans, black boots and of course pearls, this ensemble will have you looking effortlessly sophisticated while chanting the Rammer Jammer Anthem!

Two major fashion trends for Fall 2012 are colored skinny jeans and the peplum! Dark crimson red jeans, a white peplum blouse, a houndstooth fedora and neutral wedges will have you on trend and looking amazing!

The denim shirt has made a comeback and I am a huge fan! Pairing your denim shirt with crimson red skinny jeans and boots will have you looking “girl next door” chic! All of the guys will want to throw the football with you! 🙂 This look is so simple! If you see me at an Alabama game this season….I will definitely be rocking this look!

This ensemble is for all of you edgy Alabama fans out there! Nothing says rock star quite like a tailored leather jacket, knee high boots, and an oversized bag. Taking this look to the field is easy! A form fitting crimson red top, a multi-layered gold necklace and houndstooth scarf is the perfect way to bring a little edge to your game day fashion!

GQ chic on game day??? YES, Please! Being Properly Stylish is not only for women! Guys, this is a great opportunity to impress the ladies…..and a good excuse to wear crimson red jeans! 🙂 You can have a relaxed look with a striped t-shirt, leather jacket and converse chucks. Or be David Beckham chic with a gray blazer, white fitted tee and aviators, or top of the class with a gray button up and black tie! Any of these ensembles are sure to turn heads!!

There are so many ways to celebrate your favorite team through fashion! I hope you are inspired by this Game Day Runway!

Now, get out there and cheer on the Crimson Tide…..with the PROPER STYLE!

B. Blessed!
