Preppy NFL and College Football Team Clothing {2014 UPDATE}

UPDATED: 9/16/14

In my quest to find cute, respectable clothing to wear to Jaguars and Florida State football games...I seem to always wind up back at the sports shops that specialize in NFL and NCAA apparel for the very tiniest of girls and made from material that will likely fall apart after one wash.

An ongoing list of sources for those that want something other than the half-shirt with bedazzled embellishments:

Garnet & Gold Dress from shopdressu.com

Please send me your favorite boutiques so we can keep this list growing and find cute clothing for the upcoming football season!

Cousteau's Waffle & Milkshake Bar

Cousteau's Waffle and Milkshake Bar is located at 15 Hypolita Street in the historic district.

After a Facebook post from Simply St Augustine noting that Bon Amie had closed and that Cousteau's had replaced the macaroon shop, I knew we needed to pay a visit. Like, NOW.

Waffle and Milkshake Bar? Genius.

Cousteau's is a cute little shop right off of Hypolita decorated with photos of the stores namesake on the walls. But based on the name of the menu offerings, I'm going to guess there's homage to The Life Aquatic in there...

It was a gorgeous 70 degree day, so we opted not to try the waffle selection, but instead went with a hand-dipped milkshake. The Stevesie to be exactly. Vanilla ice cream hand dipped with fresh made chocolate chip cookie dough. We could have added extra toppings, but wanted to stick with the basics to form our baseline.

Here's a tip: Wear a red beanie and you get 10% off! Even better if you're not a beanie fan, take one of their repeat customer cards. Buy 8 waffles or milkshakes and get the 9th one free!
