Today is the Everybody, Everywear Back to School Challenge. Having not been in school for years (don't worry how many, it's not important) I decided to show my school spirit by wearing the colors of my alma mater, Washington State University:
According to our fight song, we're supposed to "win the day for crimson and gray"*:
So I paired a crimson pleated sweater skirt (vintage, thrifted) with a lightweight gray sweatshirt (Old Navy) and tasseled booties (Seychelles “Clue” via 2011 NAS). I then realized that in my attempt to go “sporty” I looked like an old-timey cheerleader, so I quickly added a turquoise and silver necklace. Because, let’s be honest, you can’t do cheers in a squash blossom necklace (vintage via Lil’ Gypsy), you’ll knock your teeth out.
In addition to the turquoise necklace, I also wore my new turquoise earrings (vintage via Lil’ Gypsy):
Looking at my outfit, I think it’s unfortunate WSU’s colors don’t include turquoise. Don’t you think this uniform would look better with a pop of turquoise?

Like the numbering. Or the helmet. Oooh, a turquoise helmet would be sooo pretty.
Even though my team doesn’t have pretty helmets, I have spirit, yes, I do. I have spirit, how ‘bout you?! You do? Well, then, make sure you’re linked up over at Everybody, Everywear!
And have a Happy Tuesday, Everyone!
*Our fight song also says we're the "best in the West," but that hasn't been true for over a decade. Sad face.
