Saturday down south: Casual Gameday Attire

If you live in the south and even if you don’t, I’m sure you’re well aware that we southern women love us some football. Not just the game of football, but the act of getting all dressed up for game day and going tailgating pre-game. This weekend I had my first experience of the act of tailgating at LSU. The Parade Grounds are flooded with tents, filled with swarms of people- all decked out in their purple, gold, black and white. Sorority girls wear their buttons and plaster “Sorority name here loves the tigers!” stickers onto boys. It’s hard to describe, but if you’ve tailgated at an SEC school, you’ll certainly understand where I’m coming from when I say it is sheer madness.

Of course, there’s always a question of what to wear for game days. Some girls where dresses, while some opt for shorts and a simple shirt. This weekend, I decided to go more casual and sport some distressed denim shorts and a swing tank complete with some accessories and my Alpha Phi button (A Phi loves the tigers!!). The whole look was effortless and certainly was perfect for the extreme heat I experienced.

Pictured with me are my friends Maddie and Camille. The two of them dressed up a bit more and did dresses with boots.

The game was overall a flop. LSU literally played for five minutes and then we had a rain delay due to lightening and then everyone left due to the dark dark clouds. I had to walk all the way across campus in a terrential downpour with no umbrella or rain jacket. That was an experience I’ll definitely remember!!

I hope to continue this little Saturday Down South Series and give y’all some game day outfit ideas cause I know I’ll sure need some from y’all. Let me know what y’all think in the comments below. Did you enjoy this post? What would you wear to an LSU game?
