Happy St. Patrick’s Day! The only time of the year when Elphaba can feel comfortable in her own skin.
Unless it is my favorite lovable funny Irishman, Chris O’Dowd, I would prefer not to get pinched by drunken strangers. Not a problem, as I already have a stylish solution that will make you green with envy. Just call me Chic Shamrock.
When I first laid eyes on this skirt, it was love at first sight. Being a petite gal, I was pleasantly surprised that it was the right fit in the length – no hemming needed! I knew it was the one because I instantly imagined the countless combinations that I could wear with it. The rich green color and the pleats had my name written all over it.
To get in the spirit of the shamrock, I almost went monochromatic by pairing the skirt with my momma’s vintage muted mint green blouse. And before I knew it, I was paying homage to the Irish flag with cream and a hint of orange in my cardigan (okay, so I cheated with the white). The details in the accessories added the final touch; I especially like how the iridescent chunky beads contrasts with the soft knitted yarn bow made by a friend.
I toast my Guinness to corn beef, cabbage, riverdance, and Chris O’Dowd’s lucky charms.
This is a beautiful outfit! The skirt is so lovely. I’ve been on the hunt for a floor length skirt but, like you, they are usually all too long! I love yours. I’m following your blog now! I’d love for you to check out mine if you get a minute 🙂
Hi! Thank you for your kind comments. Yes this was quite the lucky find. Glad to gain your followship as a reader!
Love!!! A lady that finds a way to rock an irish look on St. Pat’s without looking tacky- yay! (I bartend, and was simply amassed at the outfits I saw yesterday…)! You’re looking gorgeous, of course!
Haha thank you! But then again, I was not present at the pubs that day.
