Yesterday was St. Patrick’s Day. And traditionally, it’s a common style thing to wear GREEN but if you don’t own green, I guess you are out of luck. Or, if you thought like I did- I tried the green dress on, but I couldn’t zip it all the way – I had to do that awkward “alone girl” dance where you’re fidgeting and fussing with a zipper because you are all alone and no one is around to help zip you up….
…don’t deny you know what I am talking about. We’ve all been there.
So because I was going straight to a meeting and wouldn’t have seen any students (I trust enough to not be weirded out by me asking them to help zip me up) before the meeting, I scratched the green dress, and admitted that I wear the dress on a day the Mr. is still at home in the morning.
Hello Jimmy Neutron hair for sure. Seriously, what’s happening with that pouf? Goodness only knows. It was pretty windy out.

Today was my favorite day of the year. Every year around this time, a cultural club does a huge “Ladies Tea” and every year they hand out the most beautiful pashminas. As a “quasi-advisor” to this group (well, all student groups), they always save one aside for me. Every year, the pashmina becomes my favorite until the following year. The leopard is this year’s! I cannot wait for next year now! (Each year the girls get smarter and smarter, they pull aside a few good ones and pick their favorite for me!) It pays to be nice sometimes.

Speaking of nice- how cool is this necklace? I was so excited when I stumbled upon Hanuel on Twitter, and they were asking “How would you style this bib necklace?” I replied and they then DM-ed me saying “Hey, we’ll send you one!” Why not?! After all, my thoughts raced when I saw the original post, and immediately thought of a zillion times I’d wear something like that. And look! Now I am styling it! Love it,. And it’s silver, my favorite!
Oh like my nails? I know you do. They have small shamrocks on them. Called “Shamrockin'” So adorable. I’m not a green fan at all, and never ever really wear green on my nails, but for this day, and since I am not wearing my green dress, this will have to suffice. Can’t see too well? Check this picture out.
So fun. I love being festive. Small changes like your nails can really get you into the spirit. St. Patrick’s day is more than just wearing green, it’s also about the Shamrock Shakes at McDonalds. I may have overdone it with the shake consumption, but how can you not? Those are so good!
How many Shamrock Shakes did you have this month?
Happy What I Wore Wednesday.
