Gameday Fashion: Olly Oxen

Olly Oxen was launched in 2009 by Charlotte Guice, to create apparel and accessories that are classic and collegiate. Their simple and elegant style gives their products a range that lets you wear them during many stages of your life- anywhere from the tailgate as a student, the office on your first day, to being a proud parent of a future student. The company designs all of their products in their Raleigh, NC studio and most of them are made in the USA. I really like the A line design of their skirts!

I've teamed up with Olly Oxen to feature a giveaway. Calling all Florida Gators and Ole Miss Rebels!!!  The winner gets to pick any one product from the winner of the Florida vs Ole Miss game this Saturday. All you need to do is head over to Instagram, follow Stylish Gameday and Olly Oxen, then comment on the post with which team you think will win. We will randomly select the winner from the entries on Sunday. Good Luck!

Tailgate Recipes: Blue Cheese Dip and Buffalo Wing Pretzel Crisps

Last week at our tailgate, someone brought these Pretzel Crisps and I was immediately smitten. They were so good. I also immediately thought how great they would go with a blue cheese dip. If you are looking for something to bring to your tailgate or serve at your homegate, I recommend this combo.

Blue Cheese Dip

1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup sour cream
4 green onions, finely chopped
2 tablespoons dried parsley
4 ounces blue cheese, crumbled
garlic salt to taste

In a medium bowl, mix mayonnaise, sour cream, green onions, dried parsley, blue cheese and garlic salt. Cover and chill in the refrigerator until serving.

Gameday Fashion: College Colors Day 2015

I'm proudly wearing my orange and blue today to support my gators for the annual College Colors Day. I always feel odd though, showing up in Norman (Home of the Sooners) wearing something other than crimson and cream. Oh, well!

I hope you all enjoy the start of the college football season and the long weekend. I would love to see your tailgate pictures and what you all are wearing today. So please send me your photos.....via twitter, instagram or my snapchat is Stylishgameday. 

Here are some great orange and blue options for all of you Gator girls!

Tailgate Toys: TailBrella

I truly love when a new product comes out and it displays real ingenuity. TailBrella is definitely a clever invention. I also love when a product solves a problem. Jamie Spafford invented the unique product after he noticed the issues tailgaters were facing while putting up their tents and the traffic problems they can also cause. 

TailBrella is a hitch umbrella made of heavy-gauge steel. It attaches to trucks, SUV's, 4-wheelers or any automobiles that have a pre-existing 2" hitch, which is standard on many vehicles.   They have adapters in case your hitch isn't 2". 

You can customizing your own canopy. Add your name, jersey number, or your own company. Of course my TailBrella would read "Elevate your tailgate!"

Tailgate Recipes: Meatball Sandwiches

I love easy when it comes to tailgate food. (Especially now that we have a toddler.) This recipe is definitely an easy one but also delicious too.

1 small onion, grated
1/4 cup chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves
1 large egg
3 tablespoons ketchup
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2/3 cup grated Parmesan
1/4 cup dried Italian-style bread crumbs
6 ounces ground beef
6 ounces ground veal
6 ounces ground pork
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Marinara Sauce
12 Italian rolls, split, warmed on grill
1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan
3 ounces sliced provolone


To make the meatballs: Whisk the first 7 ingredients in a large bowl to blend. Stir in the cheese and bread crumbs. Mix in the beef, veal, and pork. Using about 2 tablespoons of meat for each, shape the meat mixture into 1 1/4 to 1 1/2-inch-diameter meatballs. Place on a baking sheet and broil meatballs until brown on top, about 7 minutes (browning times can vary dramatically, depending on broiler strength). Once cooked, add the meatballs and the marinara sauce together and refrigerate until gameday.

Tailgate Tip: The sandwiches can be assembled then wrapped individually in foil beforehand. Or if you have a generator, you can keep the marinara and the meatballs on the "keep warm" setting in your slow cooker/crock pot.

To make the sandwiches: Spoon meatballs with some sauce over the bottoms of the rolls. Place 1/2 slice provolone on top of meatballs and sprinkle with the Parmesan. Spread more sauce over the roll tops, then fold the tops of the rolls over and serve.
