16 Mar Turning Heads Linkup -St Patty’s Day Green Outfit with Neck Scarf
It’s all about wearing green this week as St Patty’s day is tomorrow!
My Outfit and Irish Tradition
“Johnny Mackeldoo and Magee and Magoo, and a couple or two or three, were on a spree one day.” The song is called, Johnny Mackeldoo, by the Clancy Brothers and boy did we hear it on family car rides! Another of his favorite Irish Tunes was “The Irish Rover” and the classic, “Danny Boy”.
Have a listen to one of my Dad’s favorite songs.
We used to laugh, as my dad, as an Irishman, couldn’t drink beer without turning red. And it was Coors Light, not Guiness!
Corned beef and cabbage. Soda bread. My mom and I are planning to make Soda Bread on St Patrick’s Day, No yeast and 4 ingredients!
Yes, these are just some of the Irish traditions. My aunt would play often on record, by the Clancy Brothers when we visited as kids.
“On Saint Patrick’s Day, it is customary to wear shamrocks, green clothing or green accessories. Saint Patrick is said to have used the shamrock, a three-leaved plant, to explain the Holy Trinity to the pagan Irish.” wiki credit. and photo.

I’ve avoided getting pinched this week as I am wearing green! I mentioned yesterday that these gold threaded Marc Fisher espadrilles represent the Pot of Gold at the end of the rainbow. 🙂
I shopped my closet and have been buying more from Poshmark lately. Just some Spring pick me ups!
This neck scarf and others you will see) was gifted from a woman run business, Gibby’s Frillery. I have shared another of her scarves on Instagram, and they are just perfect for the extra touch of color and if you don’t want to wear a necklace in the Spring or Summer.

I was quite amused too as my boy, my pup, is named Gibby, So, I needed to put a “gibby” on “Gibby” 🙂
My teal moto jacket is from Anthropologie ( Poshmark) years ago, and you have seen these wide leg crops from Wit and Wisdom many times. I do love them with a heel, like these Franco Sarto espadrilles.

I love all the shades of green with the jeans! I read that green nail polish is very on trend for Spring…I need to get some! Thanks for linking up!

I could put something together like this with my green leather jacket. Love the neck scarf: adds a little extra color and fun. I used to make irish soda bread but it has been a while.

what a fun look, loving the denims. And the rest well, perfection of course.

You look great in this jacket and I love the style of your jeans. I’m dying to get my sandals out, it’s too cold in the UK
at the moment though. Hope you’re having a wonderful St Patricks day – my hubby’s namesake. xxx

Lovely to see you and Gibby in complementary gibby scarves! And to read about some of the St Patrick’s Day traditions. My husband’s mother was Irish and always used to bring some shamrock around. Goodness knows where she found it in London!

You are St. Patrick’s Day ready! I love green on you, it always looks so pretty on you! And that nail polish is perfect too.

Perfect St. Paddy’s Day outfit! Love the green nails! And GIbby’s namesake. We always had Irish Soda Bread and Corned Beef on St. Patrick’s Day. I have a small bit of Irish in me, but that’s just what you did to celebrate! And wear green, so you don’t get pinched! Lol! My greens are scheduled for tomorrow’s post. Lots of fun, isn’t it?

I love how Gibby got his own scarf…that’s so adorable!!!
I just love how these scarves add so much to an outfit.

Wow, you look fab in this. I’d love to go to Ireland for St. Patricks day. What a fun time that would be. x Jacqui

That scarf is darling and so perfect for St. Patrick’s Day! I love all of your shades of green! And it’s totally appropriate for the holiday too!

I just recently bought a hunter green from Plato’s closet last month and it is my FAAAAAAAAAVE! I have never owned a green shirt because I always thought green was ugly on me. Well, pair it with some white skinny jeans and some wedges and the outfit is the BOMBdotcom!! Green looks amazing on you 🙂

You are so cute in this outfit, all ready for St. Patrick’s Day! I love that neck tie, it is so simple and much easier to wear than a full on scarf (esp when it is warmer). That green moto jacket is such a unique color, too and so fun!
LizziePosted at 13:00h, 16 March
I always love when you were green hues – it such a gorgeous color on you! And I can’t believe I forgot all about St. Patrick’s day lol! i feel like all my days are running together 🙂
DiPosted at 12:10h, 16 March
That’s the spirit of the holiday! Love your St. Patrick’s Day outfit-teal green looks great on you! I’m a big fan of scarves, too-I will have to check out Gibby’s Frillery. Have a great week and thanks for sharing the link up.

Such lovely greens- I’m so hooked on the details here! from the nails to that little scarf and what about the hem on those fabulous jeans?! Love xx

Love that mint green polish!
The Grey BrunettePosted at 11:29h, 16 March
If I’d have thought about it properly, I should’ve worn green this week too – not because I have any Irish family but because it’s my favourite colour, and I do love Ireland! In fact, it’s one of my all time favourite holidays!
You look great Jess. I loved learning that your dad is Irish!

Great look and I love the scarf – Gibby’s is just too good!
Terri GardnerPosted at 10:23h, 16 March
I love your green Love bag! Shamrock green looks so good in you. We have really not done anything for Saint Patricks day-We did by some Irish Ale this year though. I ‘m so happy fir Bea that she got to be featured. When I tight, I tried to make sure I had some kind of green on. Take care, Terri
Rosemary DavisPosted at 09:43h, 16 March

Jess you do wear green so beautifully , must be those Irish genes. Enjoy St. Patricks Day.

The neck tie looks great Jess. I’ve been following Gibbys Frillery for some time. I think they’re a cute addition to an outfit. xx
Claire JustinePosted at 04:46h, 16 March
What a beautiful coloured Jacket. Love how you styled it too, Jess. I have some jeans just like yours, but when I got them they were too tight. Still too tight but have a spinning bike coming today so hopefully very soon I can wear them and link up :).. (Just got to work hard first) Love the style of these jeans. Thanks for hosting.
Anna MarcusPosted at 04:36h, 16 March
You are definitely ready for St P day, Jess down to your nail polish. I too love scarfs and yours is very pretty
