Do you remember St. Patrick’s Day when you were in elementary school? At my school it was absolutely imperative that you wear some form of green — not only to avoid getting pinched, but just to show some holiday spirit in general. We were apparently a very spirited bunch. I remember a group of us being on green patrol during recess, just hunting for people who didn’t get into it. I’m not sure what we would have done if we found somebody without green but it probably would have involved glittered green construction in the shape of a shamrock taped to somebody’s shirt. We were nothing if not resourceful.
These days, the cheesy holiday spirit has totally stuck and I still wear green on St. Patrick’s Day. But I’m into a variation on the theme — mint green is my go-to right now, and I plan on sporting it in fun little pops instead of plastering it all over my being (which was my tendency in elementary school). If I could go on a little St. Patty’s shopping spree, these would be my picks this year.
Oh it’s all so good. But especially that bag (which happens to be 40% off at Kate Spade Saturday… Just saying.) So! What’s your deal? Are you wearing green today? Happy St. Patrick’s Day! xoxo
