st patrick's day style

St. Patrick was a real saint and one of the most popular. He used shamrocks to explain the Holy Trinity and converted entire kingdoms to Christianity with his message. We can see how that has translated to modern times- we wear many version of the clover and entire cities celebrate the day in his honor. We've found a few ways to incorporate shamrock green into your day, or month! 

THE MAN

Straight from the streets of Berlin and we got you covered. 

-the plaid pants. You need these every year, and then again for that Irish wedding you get invited too. Fancy plaid pants from Tuckernuck , $198

-who doesn't love cashmere? The sweater from Brooks Brothers we love, and go for it- add your beads, necklaces, all your glam! $49.50

-the gently (well, kind of) worn Blundstones. Ebay.com, price varies. 

THE MAKEUP

The eyebrows are the bomb! I think the liner wing and the lashes are a must as well. This eyeshadow trio from Kat Von D is intense pigment with staying power and we love the three shades of green. $24

THE OUTFIT

 St Patrick's Day outfit

 We love to dress for an occasion. Green, of course, with pops of blue and white. Let's break this down:

-the t-shirt. Lightweight slub tee from American Eagle. Lightweight for all the jigs you will dance! $20

-the cocktail ring by Kate Spade. A little bit of elevation is a good thing. Specially after too much of our green cocktails! Similar here  $38.50

-the green blazer. Start the day/night off with a polished look. Plus layers are good for all the moving around you will do. Banana Republic $198

-white jeans. We wear them all year and Nordstrom Rack has you covered with these deconstructed Joe's Jeans. $80

-green flats. No heels on this night. You need a steady foot and the ability to dance. We love the green suede from J Crew and the blue pom-poms play off the t shirt. $98

THE COCKTAIL

This cocktail looks refreshing, and it's green! This is the Cucumber Serrano Margarita from the Kitchy Kitchen. Whether you are hosting a fest at your house or meeting friends out- start your night with a kick. 

THE APPETIZER

green deviled eggs

Combining two of our favorite things: avocados and deviled eggs! Yum. We would add a sprinkle of paprika cuz our eggs just aren't devilish without it. Find the recipe at Allrecipes- a quick an easy way to impress on St Paddy's Day! 

THE PLACE

Killarney National Park

St Patrick's Day is not all about the bars.  A walk amongst the green would honor the saint just as well. This is the beautiful Killarney National Park in Ireland. Perhaps you will find your shamrock hidden amongst the waterfalls...

Enjoy!
