accidental school spirit

I think I’ve mentioned before that the institution where I’m getting my PhD has green and gold as its school colors. Although it was totally not on my radar, this week happens to be homecoming week on campus for which there have been all sorts of celebratory activities. I had planned on wearing this outfit long before I realized that there would be such festivities, so I guess you could say that I was sporting some accidental school spirit.


I happen to be loving the combination of hunter green with black + white these days. I’m planning to throw some houndstooth into the mix the next time around!

What were your school’s colors?

  1. I’ve seen a lot of hunter green + black + white floating around lately, and I see why: these colors look so great together! I almost bought a hunter green sweater today just because it’s such a great color!


  2. i feel like i comment on my love for the shade of green of your cardigan every time you wear it or maybe i just think it in my head, but either way it’s true! and i love the fun pair of patterned pants!
