Tailgate like a lady!

Thanksgiving is almost here and our bellies are fully prepared for the amount of turkey we are about to eat, but is your tailgating outfit prepared for the Thanksgiving Day game? Come on y’all, we live in Texas and even if you aren’t a true Dallasite you probably know that you need to rock an amazing Dallas Cowboy’s outfit to tailgate with the best of them. Here are some tips on how to style a cute tailgating outfit without breaking budget, and without wearing those tacky box cut jerseys.

It is important to remember that you don’t need to break your budget to buy a NFL girl jersey just to support your favorite team. The easiest way to begin is to find an item includes your teams color. I strongly suggest finding a cute, v-neck boyfriend cardigan. If you are going to be outside, the Texas weather is so unpredictable that a fabulous cardigan can keep you warm, while not over heating you if it’s 70+ degrees outside. Since most people in the DFW area are passionate Dallas Cowboy’s fans we have put together an easy and stylish tailgating outfit for upcoming football games. Every woman should have their basic white v-neck tee in their wardrobe, so bust that out and pair it with this dreamy navy cardigan from Target. Wear this cardigan with a pair of black leggings from Forever 21, and light brown leather boots from Charolette Russe that are comfy enough for you to stand in. These boots give you a cowboy feel without being full on cowboy boots which will allow you to wear them more often. This outfit allows you to wear your team’s colors but still be stylish and feminine at the same time. The boots from Charolette Russe are a fabulous deal because when you buy one pair for $42.50 you get an additional pair for $15.50! Continue reading
