I’ll admit it, I’m not a “sporty” girl. Shocking, right? Not loving football has never been a problem before in my life, until I got married. In his family, football is not just a sport, it’s a lifestyle. He’s one of four giant boys (all single, ladies!) and they all play and even though I may not ever LOVE football, I’m at least learning to somewhat understand it. This past weekend we went to New Orleans to see his brother, Austin, play against some team that I don’t remember and after a very intense game (based on everyone else’s reactions.. my face was stuffed in a plate of nachos the whole time) the Saints won!
But if you’ve come to my blog, chances are you’re not looking for the play-by-play recap so I’ll get to the important stuff: what I wore. Duh. I’ve never worn a jersey before and can maybe even remember a time I made fun of people who wore jerseys. If that was you, I’m truly sorry because now, I’m one of “those” people. When your brother-in-law is playing for the Saints I feel like it’s your duty to wear his jersey but how in the world do you make that look cute? There’s no way I was going to wear a pair of dad jeans and New Balance sneakers like every other guy in the Super Dome, so I paired mine with my favorite pair of leather leggings, a statement necklace from BaubleBar, and wedge boots. Equal parts sass and family pride, right?
PS– How cute is my mother-in-law????
