4 Ways to Wear Green For Wear for St Patrick’s Day

February 25, 2019


Erin Schrader

St Patrick’s Day is right around the corner, which means it’s time to raid your closet and make sure you’ve got something green to rock on March 17th. And if your closet is lacking in the green department because none of it was “sparking joy,” I’m here with a few ideas. Peace out pinching, you aren’t welcome here.

For Work

If you’re going to be working this St. Patrick’s Day, you definitely want to make sure you’ve got your green on, because getting pinched by your coworkers is not a good idea, but I’m not going to go there today…

I paired this top with the perfect dress pants, and my favorite closed toe heels. Who knew they came in a fun green color?! You could easily swap out the pants for a pair of jeans for post-work drinks, or a night out with friends!

For Everything Else

Now if your plans involve drinking green beer, we’re going a bit more casual. While the “Kiss Me, I’m Irish” shirts are fun, they’re probably only getting worn for one day! Wouldn’t it be nice if what we wore for St. Patrick’s Day could actually be worn on a regular basis? I thought so too, so that’s what we’re looking at today!

First up, we’ve got another outfit where the green comes in the form of the shoes! And these shoes are GOOD. They’re so comfortable, and every time I wear them people stop me to comment on them! Cute and comfy is a win win! If you’re heading to Chicago to see the green river, add these babies to your overnight bag!

Next, we’re bringing the green up top [well, the jacket, technically]. I LOVE this green bomber jacket and it’s two-tone coloring! Bomber jackets are in, and I’m here for it. I threw it over a basic tee and paired it with jeans and my Converse that I wear ALL the time.

Finally, I’m a sucker for a fun tie top. The stripes, the fit, the tie, I was sold as soon as I saw it. Plus the green is a perfect shade that will take me straight into spring and summer! Throw it on later with a pair of white jeans and wedges, and you’ve got a whole new look!

Now all that’s left to do is grab some green food coloring for your brews and hope that the luck of the Irish hits ya!

As much as I love shorts season [aka summer] I sometimes despise the actual “denim shorts season” itself. Shorts can be tricky. Sometimes they are too tight, too short, too loose and the list of all of the discomforts of shorts goes on. Today, we’re here to put some of those discomforts to rest and […]

If there’s one trend I’m happily hopping on board with, it’s the white sneaker rage. Maybe they never went out of style, maybe it’s more socially acceptable than ever to wear tennies with every. single. outfit. Either way, I’m here for it.

If there is one thing I have learned over the past year of life it is that 30 minutes on a bike can change your life in the best way possible. After years of hearing how great a workout on a stationary bike can be, Shawn & I finally decided to put the pedal to […]
