Hi sisters and happy Thursday!  Saturday night was the day I have been waiting for since March (dun, dun, dun)…. the return of Creighton Basketball!  If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that Tony and I are diehard Creighton basketball fans and we never miss a game.  In fact, last year we traveled from Omaha to NYC to watch our beloved bluejays play in the Big East tournament!

So you may be wondering, “Sara, what does this have to do with a fashion blog?”… and let me tell you, everything!  I am not a t-shirt gal (especially those stiff,  boxy mens style ones that they give out for free in the t-shirt launcher thingy at half-time) so the past few years I have figured out a few key ways to support my team and wear my blue, while still feeling cute!  Here are my top tricks! And they can be applicable to any sporting event, no matter which team you cheer for!


1.  Get wedge sneakers!  I have a grey pair of wedge sneaks and I wear them all the time.  I’m a shorty so I love that I look casual but have a little bit of height without feeling over dressed

2.  When in doubt, wear tall boots, nice black leggings, and stock up on tunics in your team’s colors!  I always add an infinity scarf (think a bright yellow! or blue and white plaid) for the long walks from the Blatt to the Clink, aka from the bar to the building 🙂

3.  Never leave home without some great gold (or silver) jewelry!  I may be wearing leggings and a tunic, but I always feel better when I’ve got some bling on my arm, my favorite gold monogram necklace, and some stud earrings.  Simple yet pulled together!

4.  High-waisted flare jeans in a dark denim!  I wear them all the time to games with gray wedge booties and then dress it down with a v-neck blue or white tee and wear a plaid button down or cozy cardigan.

5.  Olive skinny jeans or jeggings! Super on trend for Fall/Winter and looks great with blue!  Olive pants are a step above jeans yet still remain casual while adding an interesting color to your outfit!

6.  Sleek cross body bag with a gold chain or hardware OR a great tote bag.  This reversible tote will be accompanying me to every game, especially as the weather gets colder, because I can stuff my coat into my bag and still be hands free!

7.  A light weight puffer coat (only $35!) because this allows you to bundle up for winter games, but it’s not too big so you can stuff it in your tote when you get inside.  I have a black one!

BlueJay Love

Hello loves and Happy Tuesday!  I can’t believe the time has finally arrived for Tony and I to make our way to New York! Tony used to play for the Staten Island Yankees so he will be my personal tour guide and I simply cannot contain my excitement! We are going to visit his old stadium, do lots of shopping and take in all the sites!

I titled this post ‘BlueJay Love’ because Tony and I are huge Creighton Bluejay Basketball fans and never miss a game! Well, I had to miss two last year because of Graduate School, but it was for a good cause 😉 And, if you didn’t know, our Jays are pretty damn good this year and have the National Player of the Year, Doug McDermott, on the team! This has been such a fun and exciting season and it’s been awesome to witness history in-the-making; Doug hit his 3,000th point during the last home game and beat his career-high points scored during one game! We have been talking about making a trip out to NYC for six years now, and when we learned that the Jays were moving to the Big East, we had a pretty good idea that this was just the perfect time to plan a trip!  So we, along with 2,000 other fans, are following them all the way to Madison Square Garden to witness some post-season magic and enjoy The Big East tourney! I’m sure I am not the only gal who loves some college ball and I can’t get enough of March hoops!

I will be sure to share all the highlights and ensembles of our trip when we return, because I am most certain that this experience and City will leave me with so much to discuss!

Thanks so much for stopping by and Roll Jays!!!

xoxo, Sara
