When Summer Meets Fall: Gameday Style

Hey y’all! It’s hard to believe that Labor Day weekend is upon us! One of my favorite things about Labor Day weekend is that it combines my favorite things about summer and fall. I usually take one last beach trip Labor Day weekend, and enjoy wearing some of my favorite summer clothes one last time. On the other hand, Labor Day weekend marks the start of college football season, and gets me excited for that aspect of fall! So in honor of this weekend when summer meets fall, I’m sharing a darling orange gameday dress with a summer flair. This will be the first of many gameday style posts on the blog this fall, so get excited!

Orange Gameday Dress

Orange game day Dress

I have had this orange Lauren James dress, called the “MacKenzie,” for a few years. It’s an orange jersey material with orange seersucker ruffles at the hem, top of the dress, and straps. This orange is a perfect match for Clemson orange, and the seersucker ruffle detail adds a summery touch, making this a perfect dress for a Clemson girl to where on this weekend when summer meets fall. If I was going to the game rather than the beach this weekend, I would totally be wear this to Death Valley and for tailgating. I’m such a stickler on the no seersucker after Labor Day rule that I wouldn’t wear this dress to any games other than the first Saturday of the season. However, if you’re a rule-bender, this dress has enough solid orange jersey material that you could potentially get away with wearing it to another hot early season game.

I hope Lauren James brings the MacKenzie Dress back at some point because it’s adorable. But for now, you can buy the Everly Dress from Lauren James as a game day staple. It’s an easy cotton sleeveless racerback dress. Perfect to keep you cool during those HOT early season tailgates and games. Then later in the season you can layer a jacket or cardigan over it. The Everly Dress comes in multiple colors, including “University Orange,” which is perfect for Clemson fans! Check out all the colors of the Everly Dress here.

Purple Gameday Earrings

Purple Kendra Scott Earrings

If you’ve been reading my blog for at least a couple months, then you know the Kendra Scott Elle Earrings are one of my newest obsessions. These purple Elle earrings first made an appearance in my May Favorites post. I bought them during a gift with purchase promo at Kendra Scott with the specific intention to wear with an orange dress or top to show my Clemson pride. The purple Elle earrings are currently out of stock, but you can check out some other colors here. Statement earrings in your team’s colors are such a fun gameday accessory!
