Fashion Forward Fridays: NFL Game Day

Hey friends! Any of you who know me, or have followed my blog for a while, know that I love sports and am a die-hard Pittsburgh fan so with football season on its way, I was all about doing this preseason post! Fanatics is an online retail outlet for all things sports and they have some of my favorite football jerseys and so I, of course, could not choose just one to style, and thought that choosing each of the Steelers jerseys would make for the perfect Fashion Forward Fridays post. So, gear up for football season with me and check out Fanatics and these three ways to style your Steelers jersey!

I would also like everyone to know that I was watching the new movie Draft Day while putting these outfits together and actually liked it. Disclaimer: I love all movies about football, but it's saying something to tell you that I liked a movie about the Cleveland Browns.
Although I'd probably never dress up my jerseys, I like that the Steelers make it easy to do so with gold.
I would rock this, it's perfect for warmer weather and since the last Batman was film in Pittsburgh, the hat is perfect!
Okay, this seriously is exactly how I wear my white jersey. 

Which is your favorite look?
Don't forget that I'll soon be back to blogging about my Steelers for On Her Game!
Happy Friday & Here We Go!


Chels Wears: Big Red

Top: Dollar General | Pants & Bracelet: WalMart | Shoes: UrbanOG | Bag: New York & Co. | Necklace: Handmade

While going through the photos for this post, all that kept running through my mind was the cheer at the beginning of the original Bring It On movie. You know, "I'm sexy, I'm cute, I'm popular to boot...blah blah blah...call me Big Red...blah blah blah...I'm. Still. Big. Red. I sizzle, I scourch, but now I pass the torch..."

You know it and are probably singing along so I won't go on. Any way, I dyed my hair red recently and these are the first outfit photos to show them off, plus the shoes, purse and location, everything kinda screams big red here. I really hope you guys are getting this movie reference, but just incase you aren't here's a clip from Bring It On, because really up to this point if you don't have a clue what I mean, I'm sure you're lost and thinking I'm crazy.

Moving on...for me, this outfit is pretty plain, but sometimes I like to let my accessories do the talking. I just got these shoes after allowing myself to splurge a little since I haven't really shopped since moving to Erie. What!? A couple online purchases here and there, yes, but nothing drastic. I have yet to step foot in the mall, or even a Goodwill up here...who am I? These shoes are my newest loves. They're from UrbanOG, which if you haven't checked out their selection yet, you're missing out. Also, since this is the debut for this bag too, you should know that it was a Christmas gift from MJ. So is the necklace actually, but I've shown it here before. MJ is fabulous and I love that he knows my style so well. He actually took these photos too, also a first. He's really good at the positioning me part when needed, but really needs to work on the standing still until the camera has finished taking the picture thing haha. There were a lot of blurry pictures to sort through on this one, but it was a fun time overall and he'll get better with practice!


Back To School Backpacks That Are Cool

I am so jealous of all the back to school posts I keep seeing around social media. I love, love, love school and have really been missing college recently. I'm also a really big fan of backpacks in general, so I thought this would be a fun post to do. If I was heading back to school around this time, I'd be sporting one of these pretty packs. How about you? Target is usually my go-to place for backpacks and bags in general, but I've been seeing a lot of great designs and styles for them this year all over the place. Here are some of my favorites.
1. Target | 2. Modcloth | 3. Target
4. Modcloth | 5. H&M | 6. Target | 7. Walmart

To make up for not having a reason to buy one of these beautiful backpacks, I'll be ordering office supplies and stuff for Marion Claire Stationery today. School and office supplies are almost the same thing, right? Are you headed back to school? If not, what do you miss most about it? Wishing all of you kiddos heading back a great year! Especially those of you who are new to the Griffin family! 


DIY: Marion Claire Stationery Card Box Display

Hey everyone! I haven't done anything DIY related recently so I thought that this would be a good time to do so. My greeting card company, Marion Claire Stationery, has recently started doing wholesale and this card box was created because the most recent store that bought some cards needed me to also send them a display as well. This was, of course, fine with me because I very much believe in branding and like to be able to control everything that surrounds my business and how it looks to the public. So I happily created something that ties in with the Marion Claire Stationery brand anywhere else that you might see it.

Chels Wears: Railroad Maxi

Maxi: DIY | Belt & Scarf: Unkown (super old) | Chambray Vest & Bracelet: WalMart

You guys. You should know by now how much I love maxis, especially this one...because I made it. This summer has been a bit on the chilly side up here in Erie but that is fine with me, since fall is my favorite season. This outfit actually felt like too much in the morning when I got dressed because it was hotter than usual, but when we set out to get these photos taken there was a random and serious downpour. After that we went home and tried to do indoor photos but nothing worked out, so later that night, just before the sun started to go down, Eric and I set out to this location again and by then the weather had cooled down and the outfit was perfect. And I have to admit that I actually really love how these photos turned out. Good things come to those who wait, I guess!
