Alright, one more tailgate look for this football season! You know I couldn't forget the Clemson Tigers! I've mentioned this several times before, but I am not a Clemson alumni. But my dad is one, and I grew up cheering on the tigers. My brother is currently is his last semester there, and a few of my cousins have all graduated from there as well. So it is a family affair at my parent's tailgate, and I usually make it to 1 or 2 games per season.  I discovered the Tailgate line at American Eagle and I think they have some of the cutest styles! I knew I had to have this stripe tee, considering I basically live in stripe tees in the fall. If Clemson isn't your team, it is available in the colors of many other schools as well! As I mentioned in my tailgate post for red teams, I love how the gold trim on this clear bag works for any team you might be supporting that day!

Dawn Dress

If you read my Gal Meets Glam Collection Sale Picks post a few weeks ago, you know this Dawn dress is one of my sale finds! I love that the Gal Meets Glam Collection has petite options for some of their styles, although I would typically look a little more into that sizing for longer styles like midis or jumpsuits. I did chose the petite sizing for this style, and I think it is a perfect fit for me! The fabric is on the thicker side and even though it was from a spring collection, I think it is great to wear while it is still in the 90s in Charlotte. I think it is really high quality with great tailoring, and as I've said about other GMG dresses, I know I will be wearing this one for years!

Target 20 Picks

Red dress (Altuzarra) | Chevron scarf (Missoni) | Pink dress (Isaac Mizrahi) | Green jumpsuit (Lilly Pulitzer) | Navy trench (3.1 Phillip Lim) | Pleated dress (Isaac Mizrahi) | Shift dress | Brocade dress (Zac Posen) | Embellished dress (Anna Sui) | Leather sleeve trench (Altuzarra) | Black dress (Jason Wu) | Leather jacket (Proenza Schouler) | Printed scarf (Lilly Pulitzer) | Houndstooth coat (Isaac Mizrahi)

The much anticipated Target 20th Anniversary Collection drops tomorrow! I didn't end up scoring anything during the craziness of the Lilly Pulitzer launch back in 2015, so I might see if I can get something time around. But with the recent After Party Sale I've been posting about, I think I have enough pink and green in my life until spring.  So I am a little bit more excited for some of the other designers, especially some of the Isaac Mizrahi pieces! I think I need this pink houndstooth coat. That collection first launched in 2003-2009, which was honestly before I could even fit into those sizes.  I would also love this navy trench from the 3.1 Phillip Lim collection! I briefly remember some Instagram posts during that launch back in the very early blogging days of 2013. If you're shopping it, let me know what you're hoping to score!

Tailgate: Blue for the Carolina Panthers

Any Panthers fans excited for this week's Thursday night game?! While it still in the 90s I'll be wearing this QC tank around town! I actually bought it at 704 Shop's booth at the Southern Christmas show last November and had only been wearing it with leggings to workouts. But I think it is so much fun with some white shorts and neutral accessories! I also have been making use of this little bag I found last year this football season, as it is small enough for stadium rules. But they unfortunately only made the larger version of it again this year. I also have one more tailgate look on the way within the next few weeks. But until then, Go Panthers!

Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale: September 2019 Picks

Have you shopped the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale yet? There's still plenty time of to shop, as it lasts until midnight tomorrow (the 11th). I think every blogger has their favorite sale of the year, and this one is mine! I really tried to resist it this time around as I'm traveling just about every weekend this fall and was trying to save some money. But, I told myself I would still shop the sale if there was: either this black and white Elsa top that I've had my eye on since last year, or a dress I could wear to an upcoming wedding that was around of under $50 (that wasn't navy). To my luck, both were included in the sale! I think the Elsa top will quickly become a new work favorite, and the Josey dress (that I also loved when I saw it last spring) will be perfect for a friend's wedding this month. A few of my purchases from recent sales are included again this time around, and I'm also sharing some picks of my favorite pieces that are still available to shop!
