17 Mar Turning Heads Linkup – Happy St. Patty’s Day in Lace Peplum
Happy St Patty’s Day friends
I’ve decided to share my love for my heritage ( 50% Irish) and dress in green today for St . Patty’s Day.
I hope everyone is doing fine in the wake of all this uncertainty and craziness. I hope you haven’t run out of toilet paper!
I am staying calm and think the news certainly added to the public fear. Just taking it day by day and making sure to take precautions.
I think the blog should be a good place to escape .
My hubby and 2 puppies make it a bit easier to keep my sanity, as I have their company . My pups are such a comfort.
My Dad- The Irishman
My Dad loved to play The Clancy Brothers on record when we grew up. I still remember some of the lyrics.
“Johnny Mackeldo and Magee, and Magoo, and a couple of two or three, were on a spree one day.. ” We used to take a long car ride to Disneyworld ( and I mean LONG….) and it was The Clancy Brothers, Air Supply and Bob Seger. Back then you had your earphones and cd disc changer, and boy did I , unless I wanted to listen to the tape my dad made of those 3 bands!
Good memories though.
I miss my Dad, and it has been 4 years. Of course, I think of him often, but especially on St Patty’s Day. He used to joke, “What is a 7-course Irish meal?” – A six-pack and a potato! Yes, dad humor!
I used to joke with my dad and say he was a faux Irishman because he would drink a can of Coors Light and turn red! No Guinness for this guy.
I miss his boisterous laugh and so many things, but these memories keep me smiling thinking of him.
My dad wanted to go to Ireland and never made it. It is a place I want to visit. some year down the road. I always daydreamed about us going into an Irish Pub and me pretending to be an Irish Local. At least, until I opened my mouth! lol!
Yesterday I dressed in Green in this POST. A dressier outfit. I wanted to create a more casual look today for St Patty’s day and I have styled this Zara lace top I bought on Poshmark a few years ago. Typically with the wide leg cropped jeans I would wear a more fitted top, but this worked quite well, as it is fitted at the top, then as peplum style, flares out at the waist.
These Wit and Wisdom wide-leg jeans have gotten a lot of wear, and I bought them thrifting for a mere $20. They are so comfortable and I love the style. They do show off your shoes as well. I need to get on my pedicure this week if I am going to be wearing sandals. These 2.34-inch sandals were gifted to me by Marmi last year.
They are a look-alike to these Valentino Rockstar Slide Sandals at a more reasonable price.
I wanted to bring out my floral resin earrings from Baublebar- as since there aren’t many flowers yet blooming, may they be blooming on my ears!
