What to Wear to… Braves Tailgate

This article was a collaboration of Kevin and Caroline (who did 90% of the work).

(Kevin) If there was anything in Atlanta that would compete for our love of collegiate football, it would be Braves baseball.  In the South, we love tailgating and the two seasons compliment each other very well.  The days and nights get warmer as the spring season continues on, and after playing plenty of ladder golf and corn hole, I can’t be wearing something stuffy.  Equally as important as figuring out which local brew you’re going to pack into the cooler is maximizing your clothing choice for staying cool and feeling confident.

(Caroline) My first priority when I go to a baseball game is comfort. Lots of standing, lots of walking, and then lots of sitting, usually in the sun, possibly spilling beer and crumbs on myself. With that in mind, stay casual. It’s baseball, y’all. Save the dressing up for fall football tailgates.
