Tailgating Necessities

Today I'm excited to share with you all my favorite pieces to wear when I'm out tailgating and cheering on my Hawkeyes! And for all of you Cyclones, I wore the red lipstick just for you :) Tailgating is supposed to be crazy, fun and exciting, and I harbor that energy when I'm dressing up for a game! Below are some of my faves..

  • Bow: I wear this yellow bow to all the games! It's a cute accessory that classes-up the tailgate, and it also keeps some of the hair out of my face when it's windy. 
  • Flannel: These are incredibly warm and (bonus!) add a pattern to my outfit. They don't make too many college t-shirts with a pattern on them, so I think it adds a little oomph to my tailgate outfit.
  • NorthFace Vest: Also incredibly warm, and they are actually slimming. I love wearing my vest with a boxy flannel because I get the best of both worlds! Comfortable and flattering.
  • Some sparkle: I love wearing a necklace under any collared shirt, so I couldn't help but wear a understated, gray necklace with this shirt. I also wear my spiked bracelet just in case I need to shove my way through the beer line (slightly kidding...). The point is that you shouldn't skimp on the accessories even though you're tailgating! If you feel like wearing a statement necklace, by all means go for it. 
  • Painted lips: WHY NOT? Lipstick can be a flirty outlet to adding color to your outfit. And if your school colors are red/orange/pink then even better reason to throw some on your lips.
