I maybe late to the party to share “what to wear tailgating” but I know football lasts another 82397 months (it never ends) so I wanted share what I wore tailgating last week to the Texans game! Fingers crossed that our next tailgate event I will be bundled up in a blanket scarf and layers – but until then, you’ll find me in shorts and cowboy boots. When tailgating in Texas, dressing for the weather is key. It’s so unattractive playing corn hole sweating up a storm so why I chose to go with shorts and a white flowy top for this Sunday football game. White is always a good color to wear to a football team if you’re the home team. Home = white. I always like wearing my own clothes to sports games and adding a flare of team spirit with an accessory. I added a Texans football hat to go with this look and I was ready to tailgate. Cowboy boots also = Texas football must. These affordable cowboy boots are for the ladies that rather spend money on high end shoes and not splurge on the boots.
PS last Sunday was such a great Texans game. We won in overtime and it was wonderful to watch. Sad they lost on Monday night to the Broncos! Maybe next time 🙂 Thanks for stopping by lovelies. Enjoy your hump day.
I figured if I didn’t immediately post my #traveltuesday, I end up procrastinating and typically never get around to posting a travel guide (I still owe a Dublin & Barcelona post). We spent the weekend in Memphis and I am so excited to share things we did just incase you ever did find your self in this city. I was so excited to head to Memphis for foliage but little did I know its still considered the “south” and foliage was hard to find. Luckily we found ourselves at a park on Saturday and found these pretty trees to welcome fall weather.
It seemed like everything was only a 15-20 minute car ride so location isn’t huge. We stayed at a Hilton 15 minutes from the airport since that is where the conference was held. We did check out the Peabody hotel and it was so cute! Loved the ambiance in the lobby and the view from the rooftop. We watched sunset from the Peabody and visited their little ducky farm on the rooftop.
Rendezvous BBQ: If you are looking for some famous Memphis bbq then this is your place. It’s full of history and right across the street from Peabody. The boys weren’t to impressed with their ribs (they call themselves bbq conesiours) but it also was a dry rub which us Texans aren’t huge about. Their baked beans was pretty much the best beans I have had in my life, they were smoked – yum.
*Gus’ Fried Chicken: Now this place is well known and yummy. I am such a sucker for fried chicken. Idk what gets into me but I love them.
Kooky Canuc: We came here after Rendezvous for dessert and got the Pazookie. Yes we ate bad bad bad this weekend. Lots of room service and desserts and yesterday we paid for it at the gym.
Arcade Restaurant: traditional / classic American diner – One of the oldest restaurants in Memphis
The Beauty Shop: Unique place for brunch – old 1960s hair salon
Memphis Pizza Cafe: A bunch around Memphis for some good thin/ crispy pizza
Ernestine & Hazels: Good late night burger spot. Old brothel back in the 1900s that you can explore on the 2nd floor.
*Civil Rights Museum: We didnt go inside the museum but this was a good spot to learn more about MLKs assassination and read more into history. You can see exactly where the bullet was shot and where MLK was standing without going into the museum.
Sun Studio: We passed by the studio but it was the famous studio that Elvis recoded his first record.
Graceland: This is like Elvis museum on his property. You can tour his house, his private jet, eat his favorite meal, do the whole nine yards in remembrance of Elvis.
*Peabody hotel: I mentioned the Peabody above but this is a cute hotel to see ducks swimming in fountains and watch the sunset on the roof (I’m such a sunset chaser). Probably one of my favorite parts of the trip!
Bass Pro Shop: you know you’re not in a big city when Bass Pro Shop is on the list BUT its a pretty unique huge shop. It’s also shaped as a large pyramid that you can see across the highway.
Walk along the Mississippi River: just a nice park to be able to walk the river and see beautiful views.
Wiseacre Brewery: A fun spot to sit outside!
Shop: we stopped by Germantown to visit some ladies from Anthropology and it was a cute little shopping center filled with a variety of shops!
(Italics: Alice’s recommendations which we didn’t get a chance to visit – thanks girl for the travel guide)
Y’all, I can’t believe I forgot to post this fab Self – Portrait dress. I wore this dress to New York Fashion week during the Reward Style party and got a million and one compliments. I felt like the real life red dress emoji lady and really made me feel like a party. If you have special occasion or party coming up and you’re looking to steal the show, this dress is it. I dressed it with some navy accessories to compliment the red and white colors.
Self – portrait has some to die for pieces that are really a work of art. They are one of my favorite designers but the price is what holds me back from wearing a Self – Portrait dress everyday. If you are looking for an investment for a special occasion, I highly recommend these on trend looks. I find myself just looking at Self – Portrait looks just for inspiration. It maybe weird but it kinda makes me smile looking at their designs then cry looking at the price. (keeping it real here lol)
Thanks for stopping by darlings! I am so glad to be back in the H. Stop by tomorrow for a Memphis travel guide / round up. See you then!
I think, if I could, I would wear this outfit everyday. Of course you know how I am obsessed with anything high waisted and the fact that this skirt has a sexy slit – it’s golden. Wearing a bodysuit was a genius choice because when I did walk, the slits would be evident and some booty would show. Just be careful with it when you walk or wear a body suit and you don’t have to worry. I actually am in love with the low cut on this suit (which is on sale) and found a similar version here with all sizes. But really – I want to wear this outfit again and again.
Today we are headed to Memphis, Tennessee and we are not really sure why lol! Teds dad has a non profit (Health Outreach to the Middle East) and has a conference in Memphis so the entire Raad clan is flying out. We haven’t traveled yet in October, so I am excited to get away. Luckily, my sweet friend Alice grew up in Memphis and sent us an exciting list of things to do. I’ll be sure to share soon, but, until then, follow along on social media.
