I absolutely love the color green. Each year in honor of St. Patrick’s Day I trade in my favorite nail color (currently a very sheer pink, “Mademoiselle” by Essi) for a bright metallic green.  I sport the green for one day only and my short manicured nails provide just enough of the vibrant hue to ensure that I don’t pinched! This year (before I realized I would be going on vacation) I was trying to find a creative way to incorporate the color green into my St. Patrick’s Day wardrobe without having to buy a whole new outfit (although when is that ever actually a bad thing?). Then I remembered seeing pictures of Kate Middleton sporting a shamrock corsage. What better way to incorporate the color green while making a stylish fashion statement After all, if its good enough for royalty, its good enough for me!

You have a few days left until St. Patrick’s Day. How do you plan on incorporating green into your wardrobe on St. Patrick’s Day? If you have time and are crafty enough, I suggest making your own shamrock pin. -XOXO, V.

  1. Kate could wear anything and look beautiful!I I do love the corsage. The ivy leaf base and then the little clump of clover is lovely. I usually wear a green cable stitch sweater, but this year is supposed to be in the low eighties, uh-oh. 🙂
    Enjoy your getaway.
    P.S. I cannot bring up the post on egg art-dying. The link says its gone!?

    1. Hi Karen! It’s always so lovely to hear from you! Happy Monday!

      You are so right …she could wear anything and look beautiful. Don’t give up hope; St Patrick’s is a few days away so there’s a chance you still might get to wear your sweater…the weather has been so unpredictable. It rained in my neck of the woods last night.

      Thanks for letting me know about the broken link. However, the post was removed as it was posted prematurely. It will be posted for Easter so you’ll get to see it. That will teach me to edit posts from my phone in the middle of the night! 😉
