What to Wear To A Game / Match / Race / Event...

In my perfect world, I would have a pair of tickets in my hand 24/7/365. I will go to any and all sporting events in Dallas. Well, that is too specific. I will go to any sporting event, period. There is living proof of this when I agreed to go to a soccer match on my second date with Chalupa Batman. I'm used to flexing my sports knowledge muscle in front of the guys. Heck, I am pretty proud to flex that muscle, I think it helps on dates! But this man took me to the one sporting event where I have absolutely no idea what's going on.  I guess it worked out ok in the end, huh? 
Today, I thought I would compile a list of my recommendations, using past outfits and past blog posts, for what to wear to any and all sporting events!

  1. Love it. We usually go to so many basketball games but we just haven't been able to this year and I miss it like crazy! And then there's this post that makes me miss it even more :( But for real, great outfits, great pictures, go vols!

  2. When Mizzou moved from Big12 to SEC I was concerned that I was going to have to toss aside my hoodies and replace them with sundresses. But I don't go to enough Mizzou games, so I still wear my old t-shirts and hoodies from freshman year with pride. Thank goodness Penn State isn't SEC - it is too cold in State College for anything other than hoodies, beanies, gloves and boots come November!

  3. You're spot on with the SEC football attire, for sure!

    I do what I want.

  4. Love this! Wish I had read the NFL approved post before I went to my first Redskins game this year. I almost had to throw away my $100 crossbody (which still is pretty small!) but then hid it in the bushes after it all.

  5. I totally agree with everything you said for each sport. I would also point that whatever you wear, make sure it's easily washable in case you inadvertently spill beer or dribble cheese/ketchup on yourself. Not that I've ever done that before *coughs*

  6. Yes! Yes! Yes! I just love everything about this post and all the ones linked to it! :)

  7. I'm sorry, I'm confused, I don't see high heels. weird.

  8. I have no clue about the purse rule. Good to know. Since I'm going to the London games in November.

    P.S. My blog has moved to

  9. I haven't seen any sports in person in so long, I will need this if I ever manage to go to a game again. Jarrod would like to mention that you left out soccer and I wouldn't mind another post like this.

  10. I love your posts. and true confession I have a whole new series of purses for football games based on the purse rule ( go figure).

  11. I love the fact that you differentiated SEC football from NCAA football. It's a totally different lifestyle that northern folks just don't understand.

  12. We would so be BFF's if we lived closer to each other! I would be at any and all the sporting events that I could! Best date nights ever! A soccer game for your first date? That had to be rough! That is the only sport I have no knowledge of as well...with good reason! lol! Unfortunately, this mommy is probably going to be living at the soccer fields if my 3 year old has anything to say about it :( He is pretty darn good and he hasn't actually played in a game yet!

  13. I still think it's so cool that you went to the Kentucky Derby! As a Big 10 person for life, I'm always baffled by the apparel at SEC football games, but you're right - it deserves two separate categories. Soccer is also my weak spot for sports, but I do like going to games!

  14. I love that SEC girls get dressed up for football. It makes me think we are better than everyone else. I say this like I don't have an OVC team in my backyard but seriously does anyone even attend OVC games?

  15. I'm so glad my man isn't into soccer. That's the one sport I just don't get.

  16. In case you're on the floor of a big-time game and need to hotshot your fashion chops,proceed.Take a prompt from stylish celebs like Beyonce and Khloe Kardashian.Leather is a cool approach to look modern.Try leather leggings with heels -pumps,boots and sandals all work.Include a cool tank or tunic, twist your hair, or force it up in a top bunch and hotshot your style.
