This week’s theme (correctly guessed by Cheri) is green and gold. I explained the theme to my husband on Tuesday, while I was taking my pictures. He took a look at my outfit and said, “You mean green and yellow.” So, I guess I should specify that I mean yellow-gold not metallic-gold. It’s just that “green and yellow” doesn’t have the same ring as “green and gold.” I like the alliteration.
The theme grew out of my desire to wear this scarf and my new yellow sweater and the nostalgia that “green and gold” has for me. Those were our spirit colors in elementary school. We were the Mint Valley Mustangs. While I paid no attention to when spirit days (and the encouraged wearing of green and gold) were scheduled, I was always proud to stand up and be counted as “spirited” in my green jacket with a bold yellow stripe down each arm. I loved that jacket and wore it nearly every day.
I hope you’re not sick to death of polls and will vote for your favorite green and gold outfit this week. (And, yes, I was really stretching to make Monday’s outfit work with the theme.)
