Go Bears...

When I was in junior high, the most exciting activity for a lot of us teenagers (other than hanging out at "the light." Remember "the light," NV friends?) was going to the Bears games, especially on Friday or Saturday nights. Our church's Bible college had a basketball team and watching them was like my favorite thing. Especially since my sister's boyfriend was the (really awesome) point guard, I felt like cheering on the team was my moral obligation. And part of having team spirit for good ol' GSBC was making sure you had on blue and gold (or yellow) at the game. So while I doubt I'll ever cheer on the Bears again (that would be quite an away game!) I thought of those electrifying moments  that thrilled my little 14-year-old heart in the gym when I wore this outfit.

Top and Necklace: Target 
Skirt: Loft 
Curls: Luck and an Alignment of the Hair Planets
Arms: Ice Cream and Exercise Aversion

Why do I make this face?

Here's why. I should fire my photographer. 

So, if I had been able to wear this outfit to a Bears game in high school I'd be looking a whole lot better than I did in the blue and yellow striped rugby shirts I was rocking back in the day (although, in my defense, that look was all the rage. However, I bet that the COUPLES who wore the MATCHING rugby shirts look back on those pictures with some measure of regret. Thank heavens I was single with no one to match but myself.) 

Do you wear "team gear" or just get in the spirit with team colors? I'd say I'm in the middle of the road... I'm not above a team shirt but you will not find me in face paint or a foam finger. Fan, yes. Fanatic? Not so much (until Alabama starts playing football and then all bets are off.)

  3. I definitely would wear the game day attire when I was younger, but now I'm more for the colors!

    This outfit is SO, so cute. That skirt needs to be in my closet. I do love Loft!
