With the exception of the occasional hurricane interruption, fall Saturdays in the south are all about football! The ritual of getting the perfect tailgating outfit together and planning out a tasty spread are all part of the fun, no matter who you're rooting for. Here are some of my recommendations for the ultimate tailgate brunch.
What to wear:
I'm really excited to tell y'all about a great local clothing company called Borough that has you covered for everything fall, from tailgating to oyster roasting! I first met the owner Ashley at a market where we were both vendors, and later I found out we share the same alma mater (NC State). She is a very talented textile designer, and her fun and vibrant fabrics are all made in the Carolinas out of really soft organic cotton. She is a Charleston transplant like me, but through her prints her love of the Lowcountry is evident. She really knows how to dress the southern gal that loves to go all out for a good celebration, and I think that applies to most of the southern women I know! Check out two of her collections (tailgating and oyster roast) in this shoot I styled for Ashley. Also be sure to check out her new High Cotton design (which I happen to think would work great for a Tar Heel/Citadel tailgater or a stroll down King Street).
