OU/TX Gameday Gear 2020

Every year, we lug out the generator and multiple tents and grills and a giant television and set up a gigantic tailgate in the Dallas Fairgrounds parking lot where we watch the game with 40 of our closest friends mingling in and out through the day. We plan for weeks, our best friends split the shopping and prep duties, and we meet up way too early in the morning with coffee and breakfast burritos in hand to set up a ridiculously elaborate tailgate and spend gameday together. At halftime, we leave a group behind to maintain the tailgate, and we head into the fair for car shows, corny dogs, and fried anything-you-can-think-of… Rain or shine, win or lose, it’s one of my favorite days of the year.

The over the shoulder straps add a fun touch that really takes this classic style to another level! I participated in the Tester Group for this pattern back in the fall, and I’m so happy to finally share it with you today!
