St.Patty’s Day Get Ups

With St. Patty’s weekend almost in full swing, we realized adding the appropriate amount of green to an outfit can be hard. It’s fun to get a little festive, but green isn’t always the most flattering color. Luckily army green and hunter green are in right now! We’ve put together a few outfits for some very possible St. Patty’s day activities that require a little green, so it won’t look like a Leprechaun attacked you…

Parade // St.Patty’s Day in New England can still be a little chilly, especially when you’re outside all morning watching a parade. But this actually can work in our favor, because our bit of green is in this awesome army green parka. So throw this on after you’ve crafted a cute but comfy outfit to walk around and drink beers in. This tote is big enough to toss the jacket into if you’ve warmed up (liquid jacket anyone?) but make sure to keep it poking out a bit so you don’t get pinched!

// Peter Pan Tee // Sunnies (which I’m obsessed with and need to buy asap) // Parka // Vegan Leather Tote // Baseball Cap // Flats // Boyfriend Jeans //

Brunch // For the ladies who brunch, it’s all about comfort and ease. These cargo pants and their jazzy little zippers stand out, while the flowy tank will allow lots of leeway for your big Irish breakfast. Sneakers tone down your gold hardware, and a brown oversized cross body will make it easy to steal the extra biscuits from the bread basket.

// Jean Jacket // Tank // Cargo Pants // Necklace // Cross Body Bag // Sneakers //

Drinks // This lacy frock is easy to dress up or down, and perfect for a night of drinking some green beer with friends (last year we went with green champaign, because we’re classy). You’ll feel slim and sassy in some black skinnies and ankle booties, while staying practical with a light jacket and satchel.

// Lace Shirt // Quilted Jacket // Leather Booties // Necklace // Black Jeans // Cross body Bag //

Happy Weekend!

All week long we’ve been feeling a day ahead of ourselves. With yesterday feeling like Friday, we’re relieved that it’s finally here! We don’t have a whole lot planned for it, but sometimes that’s just what we need – a little unwinding and a lot lounging. Sometimes it feels awesome to just be shamelessly lazy. Hope you all have great weekends ahead of you!
