Going Green

Sorry about the dearth of posts yesterday, Fabulous Readers - we had friends who we don't see nearly often enough over for our annual beer, soda bread, corned beef and cabbage, beer, shortbread and whisky festival.

In an area as proud of its Irish heritage as mine is, green for St. Patrick's Day is de rigeur.

It was so warm and gorgeous out we were hanging out on the deck for a while!

After a way-too-long and dreary winter, I'm willing to take any chance I can get to spend time outdoors in the sunshine.

This is also my first time wearing glasses with the new haircut. I've only recently become comfortable in glasses again, after years of wearing contacts pretty much exclusively.

Tiny Celtic knot stud earrings: gift from my cousin
Bronze Byzantine chain (worn as bracelet): Wolfgaard Armory, remixed
Green stone teardrop necklace: Central Asian
Purple-and-green stripey socks: Sock Dreams "Super Stripe Knee Highs"

Despite the matchiness of my majorly-green outfit, I couldn't possibly play it straight with in all green. You can just see the cuffs of these purple socks above my boots.

How do you feel about the tradition of wearing green on St. Patrick's Day? If you participate in it, do you like green from head to toe, just enough to not get pinched, or something in between?


  1. Hmmm pooh - my last comment was just deleted. It was to the tune of "I spent several hours in an Irish bar without any green on. Can you imagine how disappointed I was (and thrilled Michael was) that I did not get pinched?"

  2. I love your glasses with your hair. Way cute!

    Yesterday I wore a good amount of green; olive green, because it's one of my favorites. Usually, i forget and wear green the day before, because it's my sweetie's birthday. He's a pisces, and I always think of him as green and aqua blue. Ramble ramble. :)

  3. Your haircut is ADORABLE. I actually ended up wearing a green t-shirt to work on Wednesday, but only because I was getting dressed in the dark and thought it was a black t-shirt.
