IN Fashion Friday: Burberry & Basketball

Skirt (Burberry); Jacket (Ann Taylor); T-shirt (Indy Swank); Monogram Boots (Zoubaby); Bag (Dooney & Bourke); Watch (Anne Klein)
We Hoosiers love our basketball, and last Friday night we celebrated Hoosier Hysteria in Bloomington - a pep rally / open practice that serves as the official "tip-off" of the Indiana University basketball season.  This long-time IU tradition is a big draw, with students and fans lining up early in the day to get a seat in fabled Assembly Hall to witness the madness and show support for the school's basketball programs.  

If Hoosier Hysteria fell on a weekend, or if I'd had the day off work, I might well have donned my red and white candy-striped pants for the night (along with several hundred other fans sporting the team's official warm up gear).  But, since I had to make the trip to Bloomington straight from the office and a day full of meetings, a slightly more refined show of support was in order.  So, I paired my favorite cream and crimson t-shirt from local business Indy Swank with a Burberry skirt, monogram riding boots, and pearls.

If you live in the Indianapolis area and want to support local artisans and designers, Indy Swank is a must visit.  The boutique is locally owned and operated, and features lots of unique, Indiana-centric graphic Ts like the one I'm sporting here (I absolutely love that the net is shaped like the state of Indiana), vintage-inspired clothing, and an eclectic assortment of locally made art, accessories and gift items.
