Winning gameday must-haves
Today is College Colors Day and football season, or tailgate season as I like to call it, is officially in full swing! Football season in the Southeast comes with lots of hours on your feet cheering on your team, hot and sweaty temperatures and stadium regulations on your outfit. What’s a girl to do? We have a few gameday must-haves that will help keep you one play ahead of the competition.
A clear bag is a MUST these days. Most stadiums require it, and it is always better to be safe than sorry. It is the worst feeling in the world to wait in line for hours only to reach the front and realize your bag isn’t stadium approved.
Here are a few gameday-ready bags that you can carry with you to the end zone and beyond.
Walking from tailgate to tailgate or standing in support of your team isn’t easy on your feet. If you want to be stylish and comfortable, try to avoid tall heeled boots or stilettos and opt for a more practical shoe like a cowboy boot, sneaker or wedge. Here are our top 3 gameday shoe picks:
Portable Phone Charger
We can all agree that football games seem to go on forever. If you add the actual game time to the amount of time you spend tailgating before and celebrating after, there’s no way your phone can last as long as you do! Throw one of these chargers in your purse to keep your battery charged and ready to snap a celebratory post-game pic.
