The Army Navy game was this past weekend and I pulled out as many cute Army accessories as I could find to help cheer on my team. The Army (West Point) football team had such an amazing season (though truthfully I didn’t get to watch a single game because we don’t have cable or local tv and the 6 hour time difference makes it tricky), but I always make a point to watch the big game every year. I spent 4 years at West Point cheering on a football that wasn’t very successful, so the fact that they ended up ranked in the top 25 this season and have beat Navy the past 2 years makes cheering on the Black Knights way more fun! Army ended up winning 17-10 and it was really special to be able to watch the game with my dad (a 1978 West Point grad), mom and kids.
As with most everything, one of my favorite things about an event like this is choosing my outfit. I recently learned about Lillybee, which is a shoe and handbag company that makes striped and polka dotted items to make cheering on your favorite team way more fun. Army, Navy, UGA, Auburn, Notre Dame…they’ve got you covered. They even have blue and white striped ones that called my name (you know my love for that color combo), but I decided on black and Vegas gold flats and a wristlet to help cheer on my alma mater. I plan on wearing these shoes to all of my alumni and USMA admissions events because they’re super comfy but also really cute and spirited. They also make darling wedges and rain boots. The wristlet is the perfect size to hold a phone and a few other essentials. The best part is that everything is really affordable ($32 for the shoes and $18 for the wristlet) plus I have a discount code for you below!
The jacket I’m wearing is my old gray jacket from West Point, which was a uniform item I wore almost daily. It’s so funny that bomber jackets similar to this are popular now! I haven’t worn it since 2009 when I was a cadet but decided it was time to break it back out. The patch was earned because I was on the rugby team and the stars are from wins over Navy and Air Force.
Use code WHIMSY30 for 30% off your Lillybee purchase from now until December 31st. That makes these flats only $22.40 and the wristlet only $12.60, which is such a steal!
Thanks to Lillybee for sponsoring this blog post. I only work with companies I truly love and think you’ll love too.
