Ok, ok I know I'm a little late to the football party but to be honest, I'm just not that into football!! For those of you who do not know, I attended SMU in Dallas where football is all about tailgating (sorry Mustangs.) Now at SMU, we don't tailgate, we boulevard. Literally, that's what people call tailgating at SMU because it's a wayyy fancier tailgate down our boulevard. We have tents, bartenders, DJs, you name it. It's basically an upscale party outside with everyone dressed to the nines. You won't see anyone wearing t-shirts at our tailgates!
With our move to San Francisco, Warren and I have not tailgated at all!! It's pretty sad really! And we don't have cable, so poor Warren hasn't watched much football at all! So we're pretty excited to go home over Thanksgiving to watch our horns play!! Hook em! So with tailgating on my mind, I thought it would be fun to put together a tailgating inspired outfit! This collage is for UT or any other school that has burnt orange as a color (but I'm pretty sure that's just UT… ha!) I'm all about being comfortable and chic at the same time! I think one should always wear a looser fitting blouse or dress at a tailgate if you want to remain comfortable throughout the night. I mean, one can only drink so much beer before you to start to bloat! For us Texas gals, it would also be super cute to pair this top with cowboy boots. But these beautiful western inspired OTK boots (OTK = Over the Knee) are ON SALE and the perfect color for a UT game!
What's great about this outfit is that it doesn't have to just be for tailgating. It has quintessential staple pieces for your fall wardrobe: a great hat, OTK boots, long sleeve blouse, and a fringe bag!
