Natty Nittany: Spring Has Sprung Edition

Well Penn State, we finally made it through. Winter is over. The flowers are blooming, the ice has melted, and those lovely first signs of Penn State spring time have finally begun. With this gorgeous weather comes a new wave of fashion for Penn Staters. We toss aside the chunky parkas and gloves for some breezy flannels and ripped jeans.

We took to the streets to find some great spring outfits, and you delivered. Here’s Natty Nittany: Spring has Sprung edition.
