Tribute to Green

Its St. Patricks Day!!! "Top of the Morning to ya"
How could I not do a little tribute to 'green' on St. Patricks Day?????
My favourite 'Greens' to wear on St. Paddy's day are Kelly Green and Emerald Green, so I focused on these for my little tribute:

If you want to show off your green pride today, there is no better way than to enter your local Irish pub with a Kelly Green jacket or trench.  The best part is that you can wear it again as a fashion statement on those days where you need a pop of colour.  If you're going for the true green look, tone down your clothes and shoes to make the outfit work - you don't want to look like a Leprechaun every day of the year - lol

Here is  perfect example of how you can work an outfit with a pop of colour green jacket - I especially love those brownish-orange boots  they make the look very elegant!

If you're going out for St. Patricks day, the way to really make a statement is with your make-up.  This is one day of the year that you can pull out that Bright orange lipstick and Green eyeshadow and wear it without any hesitation - MACmakes some fantastic green eyeshadow shades and has two excellent wearable orange shades - Morange ad 'So Chaud (my personal favourite)!!!

If you're celebrating at an elegant restaurant or just aren't into the whole Shamrock Guinness Tattoo on the face look, try adding a little green to your accessories - a scarf or pashmina is an excellent way to do this.  Earings and other elegant pieces of jewelery are also very stunning - especally if its a bold emerald green piece like earings or a pendant!

Last but not least, if you honestly don't have anything green in your wardrobe, you can at least order some Green Beer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

An Old Irish Blessing

May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind always be at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

and rains fall soft upon your fields.

And until we meet again,

May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

HAPPY ST. PATRICKS DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
