St Patty’s Day is this week, and as an Irish colleen ( woman, in Ireland) , I had to style some green.
I hope you are well. I had a stomach bug this past week, so I didn’t make Friday’s post. Feeling much better now.
St Patty’s Day and Wearing Green
Ah, the “Luck of the Irish”! I suppose it is, as I can sign up for the vaccine on St Patty’s day, due to my preexisting condition!
Why do we were green on St Patty’s Day?
The folklore says that by wearing green we become invisible to Leprechans and can avoid getting pinched! So this week I am sharing a few green St Patty’s Day outfits.
Being part Irish, I like to show my enthusiasm for the day!
My outfit is all from pieces I currently have in my closet. I have linked up similar pieces for you, however.
St Patty’s Day does make me think of my Dad, he and I were the only ones with green eyes in the family. I also used to laugh, as he would turn bright red when drinking a beer! I used to joke and say, “you must be a faux Irishman!” He loved the Clancy Brothers music too.
“St Patrick’s Day is a global celebration of Irish culture on or around March 17. It particularly remembers St Patrick, one of Ireland’s patron saints, who ministered Christianity in Ireland during the fifth century.”
I know that corned beef is more traditional than green popcorn, but this looks like a fun snack for the day! Recipe here.

Green blouse– Macy’s
Ruffled green blouse- Macy’s
Denizen boyfriend jeans– Target
My tie blouse is from Banana Republic on Poshmark years ago and my LOFT boyfriend jeans are older too. I do like the wash and button fly.
My Franco Sarto espadrilles are available, and of course they are gold flecked to represent the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow 🙂
Do you wear green on St Patty’s Day? Do you believe in the “Luck of the Irish?”
Outfit details in post, as are links.
