Memo 097: I Pity the Fool!

Oh hey, November! Seriously? I can’t even handle it.

So, to say that I may have overpacked for Howard University’s homecoming last weekend is an understatement. I had more luggage for three days in DC than I did for 10 days in Europe! But I’m serious.

I wore this look on Saturday to the official HU Homecoming tailgate. I know what you’re thinking. There were no less than 3,000 people at this tailgate. Just take my word for it. It was a complete spectacle. 

There’s a lot of standing and walking at the tailgate, so flat shoes were a must and I brought my favorite (read: only) pair of comfy Hunter boots!

This look has an air of Mr. T. swag to it and I like it!
