On a (Shopping) Mission

Football season may be four months away, but it's high time to start planning your tailgate wardrobe! Spring is the season when orange prints and seersucker patterns are bound to appear on store shelves...and promptly be snapped up by every Clemson fan in sight.

With that in mind, I've been on the lookout for skirts and dresses online. When I heard that the Blue Eyed Bride needed an orange (or green) dress for her son's first birthday party, I leapt into action. Well, my fingers did. Erin's planning a green and orange (think Dr. Seuss' Green Eggs & Ham) bash for her son Hudson and wants to dress the part.

What better reason to online window shop? All in the name of altruism.

Let's start with green:

Wouldn't these dots be fun for a first birthday party? (Boden)

I adore this pleated neckline! Zoom in at Boden for a better view.

Francesca's model is even pairing this with orange - perfection.

Francesca's aptly-named Kiss Me I'm Irish dress

Prim, proper and pretty from Anthropologie.

Now for my favorites - the orange dresses!

Orange + ruffles = my kind of fun. Francesca's.

A blank orange canvas for great accessories! Target

Too dressy for a tailgate, but gorgeous for a party! Anthropologie.

Very "Donna Reed hosts a soiree." Anthropologie.

How can you beat a $22 dress? Target.

A little orange and green. Anthropologie.

More casual looks (hello, tailgates!):
Old Navy - also in purple!

Am I missing anything, girls? Where are you finding fun things this spring? Do you shop for football season all year long, too?

I am SO with you on shopping for football season year-round! I haven't found a great crimson dress in a few years, so I'm getting desperate. When I saw a girl with a crimson and white houndstooth print dress yesterday, I almost snatched it off her body..... here's to gameday shopping no matter what month it is! :-)

Yes, I totally agree - you have to snatch up the good orange pieces whenever you can!! Love the football dress picks (and ANYTHING from Anthropologie)!
