The Perfect Game Day Look & 3 Things I Learned About Dating a Sports Fan

 

Hey everyone! So glad that the weekend is almost here. The weeks are long and stressful for me so I savor every second of Saturday and Sunday! A few weekends ago I went to a football game between David’s college (UTSA) and University of North Texas and I couldn’t believe how spirited that game was. Holy smokes. Texans are crazy with their football! I’m not a big sports fan but what I do love is a good game day outfit!

What to Wear to a Football Game

So in my limited experience, women who are serious football fans rock the jerseys and face paint. Women who enjoy the game wear their school’s colors. Women like myself, who don’t care either way but go for something to do, wear something cute and casual! My open shoulder top was gifted from Social Seams Boutique and is so comfy! Plus, its only $19.99 and if you use code Fall15 you get 15% off!

It’s long in the back for more of a tunic feel and then loose and flowy in the arms for extra coziness. I can’t wait to start wearing it with a big blanket scarf and my signature monogrammed ball cap! This look is really simple and perfect for days when you know you’ll be eating a lot, which is pretty much every Saturday for me. Definitely check out Social Seams for more cute tops like this one!

Dating a Sports Nut

Ok so almost every guy likes a sport of some sort or at least has a team they cheer on. When I began dating David, I quickly realized that sports aren’t just entertainment, they’re a way of life. The 3 things I learned about dating a sports fan? Keep reading.

First, you will schedule your life around games. Yep, I’m dead serious. I figured this out pretty fast when I asked if he wanted to go somewhere and David looked at me like I was crazy and said “there’s a game on.” Oops my bad. I thought sports were just entertainment, not set appointments.

Second, if you’re in a fantasy league, you must do a destination draft. No ladies, it cannot be at your house, a bar, or restaurant. It needs to be at some sort of an AirBnb or it really doesn’t count as a “draft.” For the best draft, all of your bros have to be there and the WiFi has to be fast. It should also be a weekend-long event, not just a few hours. If you don’t have some crazy story from draft weekend, then did it even really count? Nope.

Third, sports podcasts are a thing and you’ll listen to them whether you want to or not. I honestly had no idea people really listened to podcasts until I met David. At first, I thought this was just something to listen to on the way to work. Guess again. Sports podcasts are playing whenever David is driving, in the shower, or playing a video game. These little gems dictate who he picks to win in his fantasy league.

I mean, if I’m going to date a sports nut, I may as well have cute outfits to wear to sporting events right?! Go ‘like’ Social Seams on Facebook and show them some love!

  1. What a creative post. Like you, I am not a big sports fan. You are a good sport to go along with your boyfriend to the games and put up with him listening to sports podcasts. In small doses that’s fine, but I wouldn’t like it all the time! LOL
