What I'm Wearing: St. Paddy's Day

Cardigan: Thrifted, taken in by me
Tank: Old Navy
Skirt: Thrifted
Tights: Sock Dreams
Boots: Steve Madden
Earrings: Anthropologie

This morning I came to the profound realization that I own five green skirts. Then I went out to Salvation Army and bought a sixth. I can't explain this phenomenon, but at least the holiday gives me a good excuse to wear one.

Anyone else have any bizarre wardrobe over-abundances? (Or paucities?)

Today, like last Wednesday, was a beautiful un-seasonably warm sunny day. Though low-40s are predicted for Monday, I'm trying not to think about that. For the time being, I'm going to pretend I live in a place where it's regularly 64 and sunny in March.

Soon, soon there will be crocuses...

I'm with you on the abundance of green skirts. I say you can't have too many! I was in shock this morning when a co worker told me she didn't own any green...I mean, really!?

Kristina said...

Agreed! Green is (obviously) one of the staple colors of my wardrobe. Some people just don't like it, I guess.

Peace, Stephanie
PS I meant to ask was the brownie recipe an original?

I forgot my St. Patty's day attire, can you believe it! I did some celebrating this weekend so it totally fell of my radar. But I'm thinking green :)

i love this look! i think i have those earrings in green and those boots are amaaaazing.

Kristina said...

Stephanie-- glad I'm not the only one with color preferences. The borwnie recipe was actually from a Bon Appetit cookbook I have.

Such a gentle and warm look. Love the Irish Rose earrings.

I like the look gal!

I have way too many white t-shirts in varying stages of wear from semi-new to geez, it's a rag throw it away already!

Kristina said...

Becky-- I have tons of t-shirts too, mostly from former clubs/activites/employers. Most of them I'm too sentimental to get rid of, so I'm comtemplating making a t-shirt quilt.

we dress soooo much alike! and i wore a green skirt for st. patty's, too ... my downfall is vintage dresses. i have two closet bars full of them, no joke. I just planted my first thing ever today .. .cat grass!! swiss chard seeds go down tomorrow. i'm excited!!

Kristina said...

Karen-- I have a couple of vintage dresses, nothing like your collection, though. I haven't really worn them out much because I'm wary of feeling like a walking museum. Know what I mean? How do you wear them?
