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.
