Since I haven’t done a 5 on Friday in a coon’s age, a favorite saying of my grandmother’s, I’m bringing it back. Thank you April, who posts like every day and has two babies, for motivating me that I should hop back on the bandwagon!
With two SEC games coming up, I’m in desperate need of a gameday outfit, and fast. I want to order this week, because I’ll be away from the ninth to the thirteenth and then ten days after that is the first game.
I know I’m either needing to wear crimson, gray, or black, and I won’t do white because it washes me out and I spill. I also don’t know if it’s a day or night game so I need to be slighly flexible with being able to layer something over a dress or romper if needed. Please help me pick one of these five darling options…
1. Black and White Striped Romper
I love this Necessary Clothing romper. The ruffles are cute, it’s $25.99, and it’s not strapless, so I could throw on a bralette. Also, I could wear it with booties. But I don’t want to be cold and I don’t know how a jacket would look.
2. Snakeskin Romper
Clearly, I’m a big romper girl. This missguided one for $42.50 stood out to me because of the print, but I don’t know if I’m sold on it being chiffon or not. I do know it would look good with booties, though, and I appreciate the long sleeves.
3. Cutout Dress
Of course, I browsed Nordstrom a lot in looking for options. I like the cutouts of this $39 dress and the fact that it’s not quite a boring long sleeve but not completely sleeveless either. It would work with booties but having to wear a strapless bra would be an L. We’ll see.
4. Knotted Romper
Ah, Urban. I hate that this Silence + Noise piece is an online exclusive because I’m curious about the fit and if the color is crimson enough in person. It’s also $59, and I’m not sure what bralette I’d wear or how low it goes. I will be at this one with my parents, so I’m not exactly looking to bare it all.
5. Leopard Silk Romper
I know I said no white, but I can’t resist this Parker romper. I know the quality will be great, and I am obsessed with the print. I feel like leopard can get trashy quickly, but this is perfectly chic. The only issues are that it’s going fast for just $66.91 at Rack, it’s white, and I think it would pair better with a more summery shoe. But I still love it.
Other runner-ups include an Urban bell sleeved dress with cutouts, a Show Me Your MuMu dress, another one in a grayish lace, and a piece a local boutique posted on their Instagram, which I’ll try to get a pic of soon.
