My Favorite Tailgate Attire | Wear to Where Tour

Tailgate attire where to wear tour

If you've been reading around these parts long there's one thing you probably know about me. Any excuse to drink beer  and watch football with my favorite people is a good one!  Tailgating fits that bill. It's one of my favorite things to do on a Saturday afternoon!

This post is a little bit ironic however, considering I skipped the tailgate this weekend. In my defense, it's not my team we go tailgating for. It's actually my rival team that is here in town. So when I decide watching 3 movies, eating pizza and painting my nails sounds better, I don't feel too bad.

For this post however I wanted to share what I would tailgate in at my Alma mater, the University of Idaho. I haven't made it to a game up there in a couple years, but I honestly pine for that gravel lot every Saturday when my Vandals are about to take the field. I have countless (albeit some fuzzy) memories of that place and those games.

When my friend Angelica reached out to me about the Where to Wear tour I was hesitant. I am not a fashion blogger. Though I have tried on occasion. Then I took a peek at the sign up sheet. One of the only topics left was Tailgate Attire. It was meant to be. 

There are two things tailgate attire needs to be in my opinion: spirited and comfy! I'm all about representing my team and sporting colors throughout my outfit. I want my look to scream (GO VANDALS) my team spirit, but with a balance of style.

And when we're into November that outfit needs to be comfortable enough to be on my feet in all day and warm enough to make it through the game. I had fun adding warm accessories like my polka dotted head warmer and Idaho logo'd hobo mittens.

This outfit fits my basic girl needs as well, cozy over-sized spirit jersey, fleece lined leggings and my favorite boots.
