You guys, I saw that white stuff falling from the sky this weekend. #nothappy I love fall weather, but winter makes me feel all the bad feels. I'm going to ignore if for now and assume it was a bit of an aberration and won't happen again, at least for a few weeks. In the meantime, let's talk about what I was up to on Saturday.
My husband was asked to speak at the University President's Tailgate prior to the football game and we were generously offered accommodations in the President's suite for the game itself. This was a life saver because my body is not adjusted to the cold enough to sit outside in 20°-30° temps for a night game. We are lucky to live close enough to walk to the stadium for games, but this meant I needed to be bundled up!

So what does one wear for the President's Tailgate party (that allows you to also walk a mile in cold temps)?? I decided to go casual but still put together (I don't actually own much in the way of team apparel). I feel like I hit a pretty good note, overall. This sweater is oversized and can be worn off the shoulder or normal (I went with normal for the event) and is just under $20.
Because the sweater is oversized, I did a slight tuck in the front. I had a friend request some tutelage in the sweater tuck, so here is a short video of two different front tucks. I bounce between a center and off-set tuck depending on how the sweater lies and the peculiarities of my mood that day. It may feel weird the first couple of times you do it, but I promise you'll get used to it in no time.
The Hawkeyes pulled out the win and we had a great time! #gohawks Have you busted out your winter coat yet? Are you in need of a new one- should I round up some great options for this season? I got my coat on sale at Express just last week and am super happy with the purchase. I've linked it and other similar items from the post below.
