I can’t believe that it is college football time already! The University of South Carolina (where I went to college for like 9 years) takes the field against Texas A&M at the Williams Brice tonight at 6pm on ESPN. I know you will all be tuning in as the Gamecocks start what is sure to be another spectacular season. The boys taking the field is the first real sign that summer is over. As much as I hate to see summer go…we are moving into my 2nd favorite season of the year…the Fall!
There are three elements that are key for every GAMEDAY…What you are going to Snack on, Sip on and be Seen in.

It is still hot as blue blazes in the sunny south. Dresses are the only way to go for the first few games…especially if kickoff is at noon or 3:30! A denim jacket like this one by Mavi or this white Hudson option can be added if it cools off in the evening. Have a great first game of the season and GO COCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
