The Weekender, Vol. 10



Now that football season is in full swing, my weekends have and will be consisting of game day Saturdays and NFL Sundays. I'm not mad about it. Tomorrow is a HUGE game for Tennessee. We play the Florida Gators. Probably our most rivaled and hated SEC football team. All in good fun though (unless we lose, ha!). This season thus far has been twice the fun, as I've adopted a second team to cheer for. Corey's alma mater, Clemson Tigers. Thankfully I am not venturing away from my favored orange AND lucky that he's not a fan of another SEC team. It has been fun cheering for them.

To kickoff the season and get Corey excited for the National Champ's new season, I wanted to put a fun gift together for him. I call it his "football bucket." I found this metal Clemson ice bucket on Amazon, and then filled it with his favorite things. A new Smathers & Branson belt, his favorite drink of choice and Clemson tumbler to drink it in, and some odds and ends from Swoozies and Country Club Prep. I had so much fun putting this together. It's an idea y'all can use for any occasion or holiday. You don't have to go quite as pricey with the items either. Just find a base (box, bucket, bag, etc.) and add his/her favorite things. A simple way to dress up any present.

He (and I) will be using some of these items this weekend as Clemson takes on Louisville. College Game Day will be there, so I'm sure our morning tomorrow will consist of coffee, breakfast and lots of ESPN.

Hope y'all have some fun weekend plans ahead! Before you go, checkout 10 links I'm loving. Happy Friday, friends!

  • I love anything fall, food included. Checkout these delicious fall apple recipes from Carly.
  • Getting all the fall feels from Sole Society's new arrivals. So many beautiful colors and styles.
  • I'm already counting down the days till Chip and Joanna's new line launches at Target. You better believe I'll be first in line to shop all the pieces. 
  • How amazing are these leopard-print pants?! I love the navy and black combo.
  • Nordstrom is launching a new store. One that won't have a single article of clothing in it. Read more on their newest venture, here
  • These floral print flats are perfect for fall! The print is almost identical to these that I shared with y'all last month. 
  • For my DC friends, I'm super excited for the newest Kendra Scott location to open in Georgetown. The soft opening is Saturday, September 30th. They'll have sips, sweets, and a free gift with purchase. Hope to see y'all there!
  • Definitely purchasing this top for my trip home to Tennessee next month. It would be perfect to wear to the football game vs. South Carolina. 
  • Thinking I need to add this embellished bag to my closet for fall. Love a good pop of emerald green!
  • How fun are these sneakers?! I am on such a sneaker kick lately (pun intended, ha!).
