9 Tailgate Fashion Essentials for Football Season
Kids are back to school and work is ramping up. But before the depression sets in, fear not, because the kickoff to the football season is almost here! Are you tailgate-ready? Even if you’re not invested in which team dominates, you can at least make your weekends about spending time with friends, eating too much fried food, and — most importantly — looking cute. Yep, it’s time to pull out the cozy clothes and show some team spirit!
