Y'all, the most magical time of year is almost upon us.... It's almost football time in the South again (and all God's people said 'amen'). There are few things I love more than tailgating and football season in our neck of the woods. Nobody does a football game like us Southerners. Juston and I actually have a goal to attend a game in every SEC stadium over the next few years. So far, we've done our favorite teams a few times each (I'm a Georgia girl and he's a Tennessee guy). We've also done Auburn, Alabama and Kentucky. We're planning to do Vanderbilt this season since we'll be living so close. We still have quite a few to knock out, but we're getting there. Caroline has already done two stadiums (Georgia and Tennessee) and Carter has done one (Georgia).
There are so many things I love about game day; the pageantry, the bond the fans share, the passion you can see in the players and coach, the band, the cheerleaders, the halftime show, the tailgating, the food while tailgating, meeting other fans and I could go on and on. But one of my favorite things on any given game day is to see what all the other ladies are wearing. Gameday fashion may sound silly in some places, but in the South, the ladies turn out in their best for their favorite team.
I've put together some great outfit options for any of you fellow Georgia fans out there. The first half of the season, it's still usually blazing hot, so these outfit ideas are warm weather friendly.

Most of these looks will carry you through the first couple of months of games, maybe longer. Transitioning to fall is simple, too. You can throw on a cute cardigan or jean jacket over the sleeveless tops, and instead of flip flops, add some cute booties. A couple of great options for those can be found here at Blossom Shoes and here at King Ranch Saddle Shop. Some of my favorite online shops to find great gameday attire that's also great everyday wear are Laroque, Sugar, and Elizabeth Wilson Designs. The only downside to Elizabeth Wilson is that things sell out SO quickly on her site every time new things are loaded and the lead time to get pre-ordered items is about 6 weeks. It took me three tries to get a top I wanted, but it is absolutely adorable and great quality. The company is run completely by a high school girl right out of Lexington, KY. She makes everything herself and it's all adorable. Worth the wait in my opinion.
So, who are y'all cheering for this season? Are you going to any games? Go Dawgs!
