Do you know what officially starts this Friday?! (With a few events creeping in as early as Wednesday?!) I'll give you a clue: it brings the world together in a series of inspirational sports moments that leave me weepy and sentimental. And also wishing I was a better athlete, but only for a second because I enjoy watching on the couch too much to give it up.
It's the Olympics! Or as we should be saying, THE OLYMPICS. Are you ready? Are you going to be glued to your TV for the next 3-ish weeks, watching even the "nerd" events like archery and ping pong? Because I will be. I'm even making imaginary outfits for myself, that's how ready I am.
I'm not one for overly-themed dressing, so this is would be my hypothetical outfit for backing Team USA if I were to head across the pond. The navy striped dress is $23, the turquoise wedges are $77, the straw tote is $28, the bangles are $29, and for the necklace I accidentally broke my under-$100 rule (it's $198--oops), but it fit the outfit so perfectly I had to include it. The nail polish and lipstick are both $12.
And because I'm ridiculous, I made a second look:
This one is a little more straightforward, but I'd still wear it. The cobalt blue dress is $49, the striped flats are $50, the leather purse is $69, the bangles are $40, and the earrings are $58. The aviators come in at an extra affordable $7.80.
So are you pumped for THE OLYMPICS? What events are you most excited to see? I'm a gymnastics and track girl myself. What's your favorite piece from these outfits? Or would you wear something totally different if you ever attended the Games? WAIT. Have any of you actually been? If so, please tell me all about it in the comments because I have to know.
