As promised, here is my entire outfit from St. Patrick’s Day. I wasn’t sure what to wear today, all I knew is that I had to wear my We Love Colors tights in emerald at least once before it got too warm. So why not pull them out for St. Patrick’s Day. I referred to them as my leprechaun legs but I also think the color is absolutely wonderful. I have to say, I have thoroughly enjoyed the colorful tights I bought from We Love Colors this fall and I think next fall I’ll have to explore options like orange and yellow too. There was just something so Kate Spade about these emerald green legs today, I totally loved it.
I also added accents of green in my makeup and accessories. My green and blue plaid ballet flats (and with the length of this dress I needed to wear heels but didn’t have any that I wanted to wear), a green malachite heart necklace, my emerald engagement/wedding ring and my nail polish is Essie Pretty Edgy. I also decided to swipe Bare Escentuals eye shadow in Oz across my lid and do a darker green smoky eye with Nars Night Porter, a gorgeous black/green with glitter shadow. And I did jazz up my plain blue jersey dress with my blue satin flower belt, because I just need a little something around the waist. All in all, I think I’m a pretty cute leprechaun.
I know I’m not Irish but any holiday that lets you wear as much green as you want and pinch folks who aren’t wearing green is fantastic in my book. I text my Mom a picture of my green legs this morning and she replied, “it really is your holiday.” It is indeed. I truly love the color green.
I hope you had a great St. Patrick’s Day!
