St. Patrick's Day

This is a post I was asked to write for become.com. You can check it out here. Or just read below. :)


St. Patrick's Day is in under two weeks so you better start dying your beer green now. In Boston St. Patrick's day is a holiday of sorts and you wouldn't look out of place in full on Leprechaun regalia. But if you are in any other part of the country and want to celebrate a wee bit of Irish heritage and not look like you are looking for a pot of gold, well then I have a few suggestions for you. Here are three items you can wear the rest of the year as well.

If you just want a touch of green might I suggest some green Chuck Taylor's? They work well for men or women.

If you are feeling a bit more daring how about a lovely green cardigan.


This cardigan from Nordstrom would look good over a white shirt and jeans. You can also throw it on after work and instantly be dressed for the occasion. Any green cardigan would work equally as well.

and lastly if you are feeling very daring how about a cute Celtics vintage looking T.


It says festive for St. Patrick's Day but no one would think it was weird if you wore it any other day of the year. The would just think you are a fan! Partnered with the green sneakers and jeans this would be a perfect Irish pub outfit.

I'll be spending the majority of that day on the beach in Aruba...I'll try to wear something green or at the very least, have a drink to celebrate the day. ;)

I always wear something green on St. Patrick's day even though I don't have a drop of Irish blood in me, because one year somebody pinched me for not wearing green. It was a very alarming experience. I really like that cardigan so maybe I have an excuse to get that and it can be my green for this year.
