Hello darlings !
I am so sorry this post is so late this week…ugh ! I was so crazy busy last week that I had absolutely no time to get this post ready for Monday and I am so sorry, I was doing so well ! Don’t worry though, I will get back on track right away – this Monday there will be a new post for you haha, I promise ! Anyways, Happy Belated St. Patrick’s Day ! I hope it was just as much fun for all of you as it was for me, sadly I didn’t visit an Irish Pub ( which I am making a point to do next year) but instead I went downtown with a bunch of my friends and it was a blast. I love how much green is everywhere on St. Patrick’s Day, it is such a pretty colour that I feel is super under rated and seeing it all over for the occasion makes me so happy. I also feel that green looks really good with my colouring so that could be another reason it is one of my favourites haha. My favourite colours of green are definitely a more forest green like the colour of my dress here and also a brighter more Kelly/Greenery green like the pom flowers I picked out. So naturally, these are the colours I went for when creating my St. Patrick’s Day outfit !
This outfit, even when I was putting it together seemed kind of boring. It only consists of a dress and some booties, literally, but together were just too perfect to add anything that may take away from each of them. I tried this dress on with multiple jackets and accessories and everything just distracted from the look itself and so I decided just to wear it how it is ! I love the way the floral embroidery on these boots is so easy to pair with anything, I have worn them so much since purchasing them and I can’t get enough. The dress and booties go together so well I think because of the colouring, green just seems like a perfect accent colour for florals because, you know, grass and the slight hints of green in the boots just makes it work even more flawlessly.
This dress itself is so comfortable and easy to wear; although I felt with these booties it didn’t need anything else, it would be so easy to throw anything on with it and make it work. The shape of the dress is also very flattering, I always find myself drawn to shift type dresses because they hug all of the places you want them to while skimming over the parts that you don’t. This one is a little more tight fitting than I would usually want my shift dresses to be but with the neckline detailing it just looked better in my opinion. Speaking of the neckline, the v-neck shape makes the dress more flattering for people who have a slightly larger chest which of course I am all about flattering my body type so that was a plus. I also love the choker band at the top of the dress which just adds that little bit of interest and a more modern spin on the otherwise simple dress.
I got a ton of compliments on this dress the night we went out which just confirmed for me the fact that this was a perfect choice for St. Patrick’s Day ! I actually ended up pairing it with my knee high boots just for that little oomph, which in retrospect was a horrid idea because my feet were dead by the end of the night, but c’est la vie. I forgot to mention I had also made the cutest jello shots for the pre-drinking session which I did for the first time – tequila and lime jello ! They were green, super cute, and very strong but they were good ! I would recommend only adding half a cup of tequila rather than a cup if you ever want to try them out lol, but that’s up to you !
What did you do for St. Patrick’s Day ? I would love to hear and get some inspiration for next year when we all can once again pretend we are Irish haha !
Thank you so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed this look !
