Oops. I got this pretty vintage-y day dress in a color I have never worn before at Dog & Pony a little while back, not realizing it could pass as a game day dress in this football town of mine…Fast forward to a Saturday and viola! I was getting horns hooked at me all over the place. I am not much of a sports fan, and of course was a little bit embarrassed to be one of the many burnt-orange masses, but I still love this dress.
Here in Austin, game day outfits range from the classic Longhorns logo t-shirt or jersey to denim miniskirts, orange blouses, and cowboy boots. Ladies go ALL OUT for the games here, and I know for a fact that they love burnt orange jewelry with their outfits. If I were a UT fan, and ever went to a game, I would fit right in in this dress. It would be a look suited to the spirit of the event, but also expresses my personality. Throw a jean jacket on, and even some brown cowboy boots and I could be bleeding orange, right??
