Sequins and Sea Breezes: Being Irish!

Being Irish!

3/17/2014


Lá Fhéile Pádraig Sona Daoibh or Happy St. Patrick's Day! 
This is one of my favorite holidays and not just for the drinking. I love how everyone you see is wearing something green, I love Irish food and I'm not going to lie, I love the music and dancing! I usually play the Dropkick Murphys Pandora station ALL day on St. Paddy's Day and I love every second of it! Of course the (green) beer is a plus too, although I usually prefer the cider!

I had such a hard time finding something green this year. I felt like everything was mint green or sea green but I wanted emerald green so I began the hunt to find something that was the "perfect" color. After multiple stores I finally found this maxi skirt at Target (I shouldn't be surprised, I find EVERYTHING at Target!), not only was it the perfect color but it was also a maxi skirt - win for me! This whole outfit, down to my hair, was actually inspired by a co-worker of mine who came out to a bachelorette bar crawl wearing a similar outfit and the exact same hair style last weekend. I loved how casual yet chic it looks so I recreated it to celebrate St. Paddy's day with friends this weekend at Raglan Road. I decided to pair the maxi skirt with a tied off t-shirt from Hollister, a gold circular necklace from H&M that reminded me of a Celtic knot and sandals since walking around at Downtown Disney can be crazy (and it was!). Below is a preview of my St. Patrick's Day celebration, how did you spend yours?

{Me and my favorite girls, some crazy guy decked out in an entire rhinestone Ferrari outfit (stayed tuned, I might have to recreate that one ;) ), green drinks, green shots!}

  3. You look awesome! I'm jealous of just how many great skirts you seem to have! Too bad Target online doesn't have the green color. You should do a tutorial on the hair! It's so cute!

  5. Love the hairstyle you went with!! Great find with the maxi - I have found a few at Arden B that are reasonably priced and have a lot of fun colors!! Totally bypassed St. Patty's day this year and opted for low key!!

  6. So cute!! I am obsessed with you hair! And the knotted tee is one of my favorite new trends for summer--and Target is always a miracle worker :)
