Getting Dressed for (Georgia) Gameday

For all you non-UGA fans out there reading this:
1. Bless your heart.
2. If you see something you like but want to rep a different team, check out the sites mentioned below as they all make/carry gear for more than just us Dawgs.

College football may’ve technically started last weekend, but for me it’s not official until Georgia kicks off against Vanderbilt tonight at 7:30pm.

I know I’m not alone when I say Fall is my favorite season of the year. But it’s not because of pumpkin spice lattes or the changing colors of leaves. For me, it’s all about Saturdays spent watching college football and drinking beers decked out in all the red and black I can find.

Funny thing is, I realized last football season that I don’t have very much fan gear for my Alma Mater. An Ohio State alum friend called me out and I got to thinking about how exactly that was possible. See, the thing is, when I was in college we dressed up for game days. Dressed up dressed up. We wore red and black, duh, but we wore dresses and skirts and little tank tops.

So now, here I find myself, Bulldawg fan gear lacking and going into another football season woefully unprepared. But don’t you worry about me; I’m a problem solver, you see. I went shopping!

I spent more than a couple hours searching the web high and low for cute UGA shirts so you don’t have to. Turns out it’s harder than you’d think to find something other than the traditional unisex tees or the “we call it ladies cut but really it’s made for small children” tees. Check out what I ordered & what’s still sitting in my shopping cart for next time.

Camo Takeover, Atlanta United Edition

Hi, my name is Rebecca and I’m obsessed with camo.

There, I said it (again). The first step to fixing a problem is admitting you have one, right?

My lululemon Tuesday Top Five posts are littered with pictures of new camo prints and styles. My closet is slowly being taken over by various camo print Aligns and Fast & Frees. I have camo print underwear, sweatshirts and sports bras.

And now I have a camo print Atlanta United jersey! Or at least I will on September 3 when it gets delivered.

I don’t know exactly when it was released, but I spotted this warm-up jersey a couple games ago and haven’t stopped thinking about it. When I went to order it last week, it was SOLD OUT *whomp whomp* … But while looking online for something else ATL UTD-related yesterday, I happened to stumble upon a site that had restocked them (or at least had them on backorder rather than being sold out).

Aside from my obvious general excitement over being able to add to my camo collection, this will be a fun jersey to wear to any games focused on honoring the military/vets. I’m not typically a fan of the special edition jerseys, but I’m excited about this one! (It’s an unpopular opinion, but the orange and white King Peach jersey is just not my jam.)

Since I didn’t have the opportunity to try it on, I ordered the same size I just got in the new men’s 2019 Stars and Stripes Jersey – a medium. Fingers crossed it fits! The first jersey I got was a ladies fit and I wore it the first two seasons; this season though I wanted something with a little more length and breathability, so I got a men’s jersey.
