It is funny how we decide that we shouldn’t wear certain colors. When I was younger, I would never wear red, and now it is one of my favorite colors to wear. Green was another one of “those” colors that I would never wear. I still don’t care for Olive green around my face so, I wear that color on my bottom half. Today, I am showing you four casual outfits for St. Patrick’s Day, and they all include GREEN.
I know that a lot of people don’t like to wear white. Maybe the reason is that you are afraid that you can’t keep it clean. Or, maybe the reason is that it washes your complexion out.
I’ve learned to incorporate colors into my wardrobe in various ways. The colors that I love and look good with my skin tone, I’ll wear in tops, scarves, cardigans, and sweaters. The colors that don’t look good with my skin tone will be worn in pants, skirts, handbags, or shoes.
My mother says that I never met a store that I didn’t like, and that is true with color also. I LOVE color! I am becoming known for color since so many bloggers stick with mostly black, gray, or navy. I love those colors too, but give me some green, pink, blue, brown, yellow, and the rest of the colors you can find in the Crayola box.
St. Patrick’s Day may not be a holiday that you celebrate, but it should be. Think about it; it is the “luckiest” holiday there is. Lol! Get it – luck – four-leaf clover!
This look is about as casual as you can get. A v-neck green tee is casual; it is simple, comfortable, and perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. This vintage tee is the berries! That means that I love this tee. It is so soft, lightweight, and it is affordable. I am wearing a size large in this tee, and I am ordering a couple of other colors for the spring and summer.
No back fat shows. That is my litmus test for determining if my shirt is too tight. It couldn’t possibly be because I have gained weight. Lol!
All outfits start with a top and a bottom unless it is a dress or jumpsuit. To elevate a 2-piece outfit, add a third piece. Some of the time, I will add a scarf, but most of the time, it is a cardigan or jacket. Today, I added a classic jean jacket in the color white.
This jacket is one that I’ve had for a long time. I was eating in a restaurant, and it was freezing. There was a Cato’s next door, so I ran over and grabbed this jacket. I need to update this jacket since it doesn’t fit me correctly. The ones that I am considering are linked below. Normally, I will order a large jacket since I will be wearing it over the top.
This look is something that you could wear even if you don’t like green. This adorable floral print camisole is so stinking cute! I love how feminine it is, but it isn’t covered in ruffles. The gorgeous green and lilac combination is pretty, and I can’t wait to see if it will go with the orchid jean jacket that I bought the other day.
I love a camisole because it can be worn all year long. In the fall and winter months, I wear it with a jacket and a heavy cardigan. And, in the spring and summer, I wear it with a light cardigan or by itself. I am wearing a medium in this cardigan, and it fits me fine. It might be a tiny bit snug through the chest, but not enough to reorder a bigger size.
The navy cardigan that I am wearing was one that I bought at a final sale last fall. Navy and white are one of my favorite color combinations, and it is a classic combo. Here are some similar cardigans for you in case you don’t already own one.
How cute is this top??? I love gingham, and this green and white v-neck Voile top is adorable. The only fault that I have with this top is that it is a tiny bit on the short side. The 3/4 balloon sleeves look very chic and stylish, and you would never know that this top is only $20.00. It also comes in several other prints and colors, so be sure to check them all out. I am wearing a medium in the top.
I am wearing the same jewelry in all of the photos. It is the Maggie small hoops, a horizontal cross necklace, the Shine necklace that I have been wearing so much lately, and the Maggie bangle bracelet.
The chewed hem mid-rise white jeans are a pair that I bought last year, but they are still in stock. I am wearing my usual size 30 in the jeans, and they fit me great. Here are some others that you might like.
When I posted about Golden Goose sneakers, one lady commented that she had 2 pairs of Golden Goose sneakers, but she preferred HV Havana sneakers. When I saw this leather pair by HV Havana with the green heel, I knew that I had to try them. There were two reviews on the shoes. One said that they ran true to size, and the other said that they ran small.
I ordered my usual size 9 since there was no clear answer about sizing, but I think they run a half size small also. I could wear them, but they rubbed my little toe, so these will have to go back. However, they are super cute, so I’m thinking about trying another version. What do you think?
Do you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? Do you wear green on St. Patrick’s Day?
I am celebrating this month because it is Joe’s Birthday month. He told me that I couldn’t make a big deal out of his birthday. I don’t think that announcing for the entire world to see is making a big deal. Lol! So, randomly, each week, I am going to pick a winner for a gift. The gifts will vary in size and price, and I will pick the winner from the comments that I receive during the week.
