Last week, I mentioned that I was going to have to throw some green outfit together for St. Patrick’s Day, since I’d left my green pants at the dry cleaner. But, I just couldn’t do it. Once I get an outfit idea in my head, it’s really hard for me to let go of it. So, I got ready, threw on some jeans, drove through the dry cleaner, and changed at work. No one was the wiser. A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do.
I’ve probably mentioned to you how sometimes my outfits look better in real life than on camera. I really can’t figure out what to attribute this to, other than my poor photography skills. Regardless, this is one of those cases. I didn’t want to skip showing you, as I often do with poorly photographed outfits, because it’s a holiday outfit, and I love holiday outfits! Plus, my nails were done for the occasion, and that is so seldom the case.
So, appreciate the awesomeness that is my green pants, and don’t dwell too much on the rest. But do please tell me about your holiday celebrations – did you remember to wear green (I reminded you, so really, no excuses…). Did you drink green beer or eat corned beef and cabbage (that’s what people eat, right?) Let’s talk!
Oh, and if you were really upset about not seeing a good picture of my shoes on Monday (or about seeing my dirty car rug), here’s another chance. Same shoes.
Kiss me, I’m Irish!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everyone! I hope you’re enjoying celebrating today. I am legitimately a little bit Irish (and about every other Western European nationality you can think of), so I always enjoy wearing green on March 17. Also, it’s a theme. You know I never pass up a theme.
My plan for today was to wear my favorite green pants, but unfortunately, I forgot to pick them up at the dry cleaner (aka the bane of my existence, hashtag first world problems). So, I’m wearing some other green concoction which you’ll probably see sometime next week. In the mean time, here is an older picture I found that happened to fit the occasion perfectly.
You can tell this is an old picture because my hair is that perfect shade of blonde – not whatever weird color it is now because the last girl I went to did not listen to me when I said my hair takes a long time to set…but, whatever. I’m obviously totally over it.
Things I love about this outfit:
1) My hair. The headband curling trick at it’s finest prep stage.
2) Gold braided headband. Gold braided belt. Symmetry.
3) Bare arms and bare legs. Summer cannot get here fast enough for me!
4) Cowboy boots. They make everything more fun.
5) The little splash of yellow in my bracelets. Full-on color blocking isn’t really that big anymore, but I still love combining colors whenever possible. The bright accent adds a fun pop.
Did you remember to wear green today? Or, do you go the Protestant orange route? Send me some pictures of your green outfits – let’s be festive together!
