The Luck of The Irish-Wearing Green for St Patrick’s Day-


Happy St Patrick’s Day!

I had to do a post. Red hair, fair skin, green eyes, Irish. These are some of the traits that make me part Irish. However, some Irish characteristics have eluded me. I do not like beer. Those of you that know me, or have been reading the blog, know that I LOVE wine. I could talk varietals and regions if you’d like, but beer..hmm, not so much! I try. I really do. My husband likes to try different beers and I enjoy the names of some, but the taste, I have yet to find one that I like. Not a fan of hoppy flavors or strong scents. I am not a meat and potatoes girl. I love seafood, fish and chicken. Potatoes are good, espcially sweet potatoes, but that is more Southern than Irish.

Follow me on  INSTAGRAM AS I AM OFFERING with other bloggers for some fun SPRING SHOPPING  $800 to NORDSTROM . Rules on IG PAGE, CONTEST ends 8:30 EST 3/18… SEE IF YOU WIN The pot of gold! 

I used to tell my Dad he was a Pseudo-Irishman, as he when he would drink a beer, it would be Coors-Light and his face would turn a beet red! We would laugh at this!  You heard me mention the Clancy Brothers, well, they were one of dad’s favorite Irish Groups.. and I can still hum the tunes from years ago. I am only sorry my Dad never got to see Ireland, as he wanted to go, be we told him it would be a long walk and swim, as Dad didn’t fly!

Well, when it comes to being Irish, I can say I do love the color green. Olive green, sage, emerald, pine green, are all of my favorites. Today I am wearing a jacket from Anthropologie and had to get the little buttons on the collar that have a resemblance to a clover , only not 4 leaf, but close enough! This sage green jacket I paired with a lace skirt from Ann Taylor, and floral shoes with jeweled embellishment on the top. Lastly, I added my vintage inspired emerald necklace , vintage earrings, and Rebecca Minkoff Love Crossbody in “Jungle”.

Enjoy your St Patricks Day, and either do a jig,  have a green bagel or drink a beer for me! 🙂

Have a great day!

    You and Gibby are so adorable in green. After reading this, I can totally see the Irish in you even more. I always love green with your red hair. The bag and shoes are gorgeous and you have the prettiest statement earrings and brooches always.

    I am a wine drinker too and in general I don’t like beer though every now and then I may drink a Corona. In Fall, I have found they have a few beer varietals that most people that are not beer drinkers and especially women would enjoy. There is a blackberry one, a vanilla one and a plum one I have tried and loved.

    Don’t forget to link up with me on Thursdays pretty lady. The linkup is live below, you can still join it. Thanks, Ada.

    How cute that your dog let you “dress” him also!! You sure show off green to a great advantage! I never think to wear a jacket by itself—-I always think I need to have a shirt showing under it—thanks for this inspiration!! jodie

      Glad you enjoyed my look. Yes, this was a jacket I felt I could wear solo, unless I am wearing low rise jeans , then a shirt is a must. Gibby doesnt mind the bandanas , we have a collection of them ! xo
