Gameday Shoes, early in the season edition

Cuteness, comfort, coolness...the 3 Cs of choosing the perfect shoes for Gameday.  For September games, flat sandals or wedges are always appropriate.   Here is a collection of the most comfortable shoes possible to wear to your early in the season Gameday festivities, while keeping it stylish too.  These are also solutions if you'd like to start the day completely sacrificing comfort for the perfect-o shoes.  Just throw a pair of these selections into your car or bag to put on when your other shoes start to pinch....

Purple and gold aren't your only choice.  These classics are coming in difficult to find color combinations in the Jack Rogers Collegiate Collection.  Navy and orange?  check.  Garnet and gold? check. Orange and black? yup! 
Or you can go with basic black.

You would not believe how comfortable these are.   Many styles have a bottom that kind of resembles a tennis shoe.  I regret saying that because it is misleading.  Take a look yourself.  These are good for gals who prefer a little heel and my preference are their simpler styles. I promise these are super flattering and the most comfortable cuteness on a wedge that you can have on your feet.  And I promise you'll see a bunch of Volatiles at our tailgates!  

These Tory Burch sandals have such a composed, but laid back vibe.  Love these patent Square Miller Sandals.

Or try a pair of Thora flip flops.  I don't like to be too logo-ed, but I am partial to's really close to my monogram.

And then, don't forget about maybe throwing in some beloved, broken-in Rainbows into your bag--- just in case.

School colors Rainbows

I love the super relaxed look (not to mention foot relief) that Rainbows can add to an outfit at just the right moment during Gameday.

As always, girls, it'd be great to hear some favorites of your own in the Comments.

Save that Turkey! It's Gumbo time...

Life is so simple and delicious when you follow a formula such as this. Get your turkey going for gumbo while cleaning up after the feast on Thursday evening and you'll be all ready for Saturday and/or Sunday's tailgating or football-on-TV watching.   Garden and Gun tells us how. from Garden and Gun  magazine Day-After Gumbo Turn your Thursday bird into a Friday  Saturday feast If the day after Thanksgiving is your favorite food day of the year, then Justin Devillier, of  La Petite Grocery  in New Orleans, is your kind of chef. “Although leftovers ‘as is’ are good, turning them into another celebratory meal keeps the holiday eat fest going at my house,” he says. On Thanksgiving night, the chef covers the carved turkey carcass with water, and as the family party winds down, the roasted bones simmer away, forming a rich stock. The next morning, he adds aromatics and andouille, and stirs in a nice dark roux. “I like mine as dark as I can get it without burning it,” he
