What to Wear to Boulevard

Ok y'all. At SMU we have a tradition of not simply "tailgating", but rather Boulevarding (named after Bishop Boulevard where the festivities take place). This year's first game is against Texas Tech, which I'm STOKED about. Mustang through and through, we'll crush em'.

Regardless, Boulevarding is much more than the pre-gaming and gaming. Just like all other southern schools, tailgating means more than simply partying (though we do that well). It's in fact a fashion show to parade out the array of spirited and well-dressed students the school has to offer.

Therefore, there is an unofficial dress code for the first game day. You MUST show up in a white dress. No "ifs, ands, or buts" about it. And if you don't wear white, it's official: the right to call yourself a Mustang has been revoked.

Of course I'm only joking about that last part, but in all seriousness, white dress attire is almost required!

You can't not have a little color in your wardrobe. I mean, what's the point of living in constant sunshine if you wear only bland colors? Plus, southern girls keep it classy with monogrammed pendants and pearl studs. It's also supposed to be over 100, so aviators are a must. 

Keep it small. Keep it classy. No one wants to lug around a tote all day. 
Cowboy boots are a total must! I see girls wear these all the time. They add that southern flair to a classic outfit. And they're soooo comfortable!
