Daily Threads: Wolfpack Red

{Tee&Skirt: F21 | Belt: thrifted | Scarf: gifted | Tights: Target | Boots: Steve Madden}

Today was not a great picture-taking day. Not due to rain or snow or freezing temperature, but because my belt was crooked in most of the shots, the camera was focused on the trees rather than me, and my scarf was misbehaving. Now that that is over...

I wore red today in lieu of my Wolfpack football team coming out with a huge win in the Champs Sports Bowl over West Virginia. I was {shamefully} doubtful going into the game. WV is #22 and we aren't even ranked, but we came out on top, and by a large margin might I add (23-7)! Not all of you, in fact, very few of you share my love of NC State football, so I'll keep this paragraph to a minimum. I just have to say I am so extremely happy and excited for those boys! Go Pack!

Today I continued cleaning around the house - washing clothes, unpacking, and getting ready for another weekend of traveling. We are {hopefully} leaving for Savannah tomorrow when Chris gets off work. I plan on rising early to finish up some cleaning (it. never. ends.) and then pack up our bag. I hope to make some tasty treats to take with us as well. We are going to spend the weekend with Chris's parents, his brother and wife, and his sister, have our Christmas together, and bring in 2011. I'm super excited to see everyone!

Super cute outfit! I like the flannel scarf with the skirt - not sure why, but the juxtaposition of it is gorgeous!

And I really like the new blog design. Great job!

I totally hate when my pictures turn out like that too, with me all blurry or my belt crooked. SO ANNOYING. Good thing these pictures turned out great!

BTW, love the new header!

I like how you tied the scarf and the skirt together. I love red skirts pencil skirts. Ever since I got one at a thrift store I've seen them all over blogs with such great ideas for styling it.

I love how your showing some Wolfpack pride in a really stylish and fun way! I actually watched some of the game but I was more focused on watching my UK Wildcats dominate on the basketball court. Hey - we may love sports, but I at least we support our times fashionably.

Ooh! I wore a very similar skirt just the other day. It looks great on you- I think red skirts surprise people because you don't see them very often. Nice work :)

Love the red skirt! Wish I had a F21 in my area... I would crush it there. :)

Courtney said...

This outfit is so adorable, I love the red skirt with the red plaid scarf! I too am for the most part alone in sharing the love for my college football team among my friends, but we have to show our school pride right? :) Congrats to NC winning!

Love the black and red combo, great outfit!
I almost wore a red skirt yesterday and last minute decided I wasn't in the mood for skirt. But this outfit makes me want to wear it now :)
Oh, and LOVE the new header! I can't seem to figure out how to do it.

love it! i actually cheered for nc state in that game! very fun! and the love how you supported by dressing up, but i don't see a single piece of gray sweatshirt material.

but i have to finish with a roll tide. i lived in alabama for 4 1/2years. and i am so obnoxious about it.

Hey- Just found your blog from Kendi's. I have to say, I am so super excited to have stumbled across another wolfpack fan!! The bowl game was indeed very exciting. Glad you sported red on your blog in honor of the pack! :)
