a touch of green for The Isle




Happy (early) St. Patrick's Day! For some, it's a celebration of their Irish heritage and for others, it's just cause for going to a parade, partaking in some 'adult beverages' and pretending to be Irish for a day. However you celebrate, the tradition of wearing green is usually one that's pretty easily followed. The harder part is not looking like a fraternity brother while going about your 'celebrations.' The key is in layering; you can still have some green, but the trick is to do so tastefully.



For this look I paired some neutrals - various shades of grey and beige - with some blue denim to really make my green shirt 'pop.' Since mid-March on Long Island can be hit-or-miss with the weather in terms of warmth, I layered a full-zip ribbed sweater with my down puffer vest, allowing me to be able to zip or un-zip either depending on the temperature. Combining this with a grey hat and grey suede shoes ties the whole look together; it's comfortable, casual and in the St. Patty's Day spirit but still appropriate if you need to go take care of some errands after and not look like you just came from the frat house after the St. Patrick's Day parade. 


What I'm Wearing:

I hope you all enjoy your St. Patrick's Day celebrations! Bust out those green pieces and enjoy yourselves; you can still have a great time AND look good while doing it. Slainte!

Until next time,

Mind Your Manners.
