OOTD: Cardinal & Gold

In honor of graduation, I wanted to post one last look feature my alma mater Iowa State University. This look is perfect for high school graduation pictures, featuring your new university or college, or for a basketball or sporting event at your school. It is a super simple look, but I love it. 

So, this tee is so so cute. I picked it up at a store in Overland Park, Kansas at the Plaza. Charlie Hustle sells vintage inspired college and sports apparel and is such a cool store. In-store they even have some vintage tees and jerseys that are super cool. Side note: if you're ever in the Kansas City area the Plaza is the best place to shop! 

The details in this tee are super cute. It's kind of like a short sleeve baseball tee. Not to mention the fabric is so so soft. Its the perfect comfy tee. I also adore the vintage Iowa State mascot. Nothing wrong with the new Cy, but this vintage little guy is too cute. 

We need to talk about these adorable Lilly Bee University flats for a second. I have eyed these flats since I discovered the company, but never purchased them... until this year! Naturally I get cute Iowa State shoes as I am leaving Iowa State right... but I plan on wearing these on game days to support my team in a cute subtle way. They have a ton of different schools available in a few different styles. Iowa State is sometimes hard to come by for school apparel like this so I was super excited to get them! Also, their customer service is great. The size I ordered didn't fit and they let me exchange them and the new pair came super quickly. 

Jeans and a college tee is the perfect go-to uniform to show school spirit. It's simple and comfortable. Some schools get super dressed up for tailgates and games, but at Iowa State, and most midwest schools, we keep things pretty casual. Which is great because you don't feel super pressured to find cute tailgating dresses and what not. Throw on a fun tee like this one and a pair of jeans or shorts and you're good to go. 

It's been great wearing Cardinal and Gold the past four years. Moving from my high school colors that were blue and gold it was nice to have one common color in the mix. I will always cherish my memories at Iowa State at football games, basketball games, Greek Week, Homecoming, and more. It's been amazing to wear these great school colors with pride!
