WIWW - Team Spirit

Football is back and I couldn't be happier! Even though my team (The Washington Redskins) breaks my heart season after season and causes unnecessary anxiety in my life, I still love them. I am a fan through and through, and will represent the burgundy and gold week in and week out, win or lose.

With tomorrow being the last preseason game before it starts to count, I decided to show my team spirit all while maintaining a semi business casual look. 

I'm obsessed with this Redskins scarf. I found it at Walmart last season and it is the perfect alternative to wearing a jersey or a team t-shirt.

I went with an edgier look for me by pairing my scarf with skinny ankle zip pants, gold heels and a leather cuff (notice the bow?) Of course my "edgy" look still has a preppy side. For a more conservative look, simply pair with your favorite cardigan.

Are you a football fan just dying to show off your team spirit at work? If your company has a dress code, get creative with ways to sport your team colors or accessorize with your team's logo like I did with the Redskins scarf. If you don't need to worry about a dress code or being work appropriate, think of fun new alternatives to the standard jersey and jeans game day look, because let's face it, who wants to show up to a party wearing the same thing as everyone else?!

Linking up with The Pleated Poppy for WIWW

  1. Hi, Stopping in from The Pleated Poppy. Yippie for football season, although I must confess, I almost went to another page when I saw that you were a Redskins fan...I'm a Cowboys fan since the day I could walk. LOL.

    Good luck to your team this year. I understand the heartache thing. Love your quarterback. He is a class act. Hoping we both beat the Giants...really don't like them and their idea of "dirty football" anymore. Just play the game already like it used to be played!

  2. I am not a football fan Melissa, but I am a fan of this Outfit. The tank and scarf are so pretty and those pretty orange shades look great together. I love how you dressed it up with the metallic pumps, also. Good luck to your team during this football year!

    Welcome by when you have time. Thanks, Ada. =)

  3. That's such a great outfit, Melissa! Love how the scarf adds the right amount of colour to an otherwise monochrome pallet. Also love the dull gold heels, they add interest to the outfit.

  4. I’m glad to see that having got your blog site I have solved my whole issues regarding searching the stuff.
