This is what I wore on March 17th. You’ve to go green, Irish or not, right? I searched my closet and tried on multiple options but in the end this outfit was the victor! I was volunteering at the school for Kindergarten Registration and you know what they say about 1st impressions, so I turned it up a notch. Plus it was a slightly warmer day so a skirt seemed like a good idea considering it has been much, much to cold to wear anything but pants in the last 2 months!
I love this look because really, it doesn’t have to be just a St. Patty’s look. Black top, black tights and a colored skirt looks so simply sharp to me. Let’s start with the skirt, It’s a summer knit skirt and I usually wear it with a ribbed tank top and flip flops so it’s nice to see it finding a place in my winter wardrobe. It is old — 3 years, maybe. Marshall’s, of course. The black turtleneck from Target (this past fall) is amazingly soft and I like that the sleeves aren’t quite short, makes it less casual. My denim jacket (also seen here) is ancient– 15 years old, at least. It’s H&M and I remember when I bought it — Syracuse working my first publishing job. I have tried to replace it and made a valiant effort last year but to no avail. None of the ones I found were right. Mostly too long. I like this one because it’s short, but not cropped. I think a lighter washed one is in my future. Stay tuned. Black tights, my Chinese Laundry over the knee suede boots (seen here and here and everywhere!) balance the look. My ASOS blanket scarf (seen here, here and here)is the finishing touch because of the holiday and it is a bit chilly, so an extra layer never hurts.
Accessories! Check out my new shades from Target. I love the thick bold tortoise shell frame. I’d bet they’ll be my go to this spring. My that girl (click here to read my That Girl story) earrings look kind of Gaelic, don’t they? Bag is Steve Madden and I bought it to imitate a Coach bag that I had to have but could never find. Belt is a skinny patent from Target.
