Wearing of the green.

Happy St. Patrick's Day Everyone!

In honor of the holiday, I'm wearing my green.  Are you?!  I decided to go with a green cardigan and flats today.  Wearing green on St. Patrick's Day doesn't always have to be over the top.  I prefer my wearing of the green to be subtle, yet still feel festive and proud to be Irish on a day like today.  The green things that I'm wearing today can be worn anytime of the year.  I decided to go with two of my favorites.

 Jackie Cardigan from J.Crew in Hawthorn Green

and a new found favorite,
The patent city flat from Gap, in green space.

They look like different colors but I promise they're the same.  The city flat from Gap is the comfiest ballet flat that I've ever had.  I recommend going up a half size though.  They have really soft cushioning inside.  Best part about them was the price.  I got these babies for $19.99!  I bought them about 2 months ago and they still have them in stores and carry other cute spring colors.  Try them out!

When you live in Boston, St. Patrick's Day is a big deal.. I grew up in an Irish neighborhood that certainly knows how to party on St. Patty's Day.  Every year there is a huge parade in my hometown.  St. Patrick's Day celebrations will continue until Sunday in Boston!
