Happy St. Patrick's Day! I have a very small amount of Irish in me (an Irish great-grandmother on my dad's side), despite my green eyes and (artificially) red hair. However, I do like wearing green, and St. Paddy's Day is a good excuse.
The jacket is a delicious chartreuse green, and was last worn here in the June 2012 30 for 30 capsule (I know! I'm as shocked as you!). Wow, I really don't wear this enough!
The sweater underneath it is a 100% cashmere one, last worn way down at the bottom of this post back in November 2013, with my barnyard skirt.
here earlier in March.
here, for last St. Paddy's Day. I think I need to wear them a little more than that!
Let's enjoy their green (and purple-lined!) splendour just a bit more, shall we?
Jacket (Alison Wonderland, consignment), sweater (Daniel Bishop, consignment), skirt (Quillaree, consignment), shoes (Poetic License), necklace (vintage fair), bracelet (vintage 60s, Mom's), earrings (local), Fulvia Ring (Wendy Brandes).
Look at all your fabulous bling - the bracelet is really gorgeous - and those fuzzy shoes! They deserve to be worn more than once a year, Sheila! Loving the green theme, glad to hear you could rescue the sweater. xxxReplyDelete
Great greens. More greens in my own life would surely be beneficial. The most I could manage today was a swath of green cream eye shadow.ReplyDelete
Love your green outfit for Saint Patrick's day! :) I ended up just picking out a few green pieces that really didn't go together anywhere near as stylishly as your outfit, haha!ReplyDelete
Those shoes are really great!!ReplyDelete
Wonderful wearing of the green, Sheila. Yes, bring those shoes out more often, please! xoReplyDelete
Wow! Gorgeous! I love green too. I am compelled to comment that you are "magically delicious!"ReplyDelete
Loving your green! Hope you had a good St. Patrick's Day!ReplyDelete
Sheila, don't take this the wrong way: I love your jacket because it reminds me of my grandparents. Rather, it reminds me of my grandparents' furniture. They had two velour (?) chairs in that green colour in their living room growing up. They replaced them with two green lazy boys, and my parents took over the chairs. Now, they are in my parents basement and I'm trying to figure out how to scam one off of them for the baby's room. I'm not sure if it's the fabric or the green but it just says "comfort" to me.ReplyDelete
Ha! I love it. I used to have a blouse that I swear was the same material as my grandmother's curtains. No worries, Cara, that's a great story! Maybe I should call this my Lazyboy Jacket?Delete
Love the greens! And the shoes are spectacular! I'm trying to like the skirt -- shape or proportion, I'm not sure, but it looks odd to my eye. Keep in mind I've got 10 years on you, and have significantly less attractive legs!ReplyDelete
If your great-grandma was Irish, you must be at least 1/8 Irish. Irish enough to never call it "St. Patty's" again, please. St. Paddy, short for the Irish Padraig. ;)
Fixed it, thank you for the correction, Ann! I'm not 100% on the skirt either, but it's a new and different shape for me and I'm always willing to try.Delete
My paternal grandfather was Irish, but I can't be bothered with St Paddy's Day!!! I do love wearing green however.ReplyDelete
Green suits you beautifully, darl! XXX
LOVE the green jacket. I'm fairly certain I have a lot of Irish/Scottish in me somewhere. I'm a McKenzie. Still forgot to wear any green at all yesterday. Oops!ReplyDelete
The kermit shoes are back ! gosh i love those.ReplyDelete
