Green with Envy

Tomorrow’s St. Patrick’s day!  Confession: I don’t really get into this particular holiday.  But there are so many green things that I’m envying lately.  I thought it be a perfectly timed post.
Seriously, I would absolutely not complain if one (or some or all) of these magically appeared in my closet tomorrow.  Are there special shopping leprechauns out there that can help a college prepster out?
Bikini? Check. Seersucker? Check. Green? Check.
I’m not sure how this suit would like on, but I’m picturing Allie from The Notebook.  Wish I had come across this before my trip to Mexico!  It’s just so feminine and cute!

Hello there most perfect shorts I have ever seen.

In case it’s not so sunny out, these jeans are still quite festive.  I love the added polka dot detail.  A little bit more fun than the standard “colored jeans.”
I have a pair of green colored jeans that I just got and I love them.  They’re a perfect spring green color!  I wanted the pair from J. Crew, but I’m literally RIGHT in between sizes.  One is way too baggy and another is skin skin skin tight.  I found my pair at Urban Outfitters and was so impressed with how well they fit!  (Plus they’re a soft denim/twill!)
[Oh look, my iPhone case goes with the green theme too!]

Strapless dresses make me a little bit nervous.  However, I’m loving the ruffling on the hem and bust of this dress.  It’s also a great color green.  Not too pale and not too wintry!

Another fun dress in an interesting hue.  I don’t think I would like the dress if it were plain, but the eyelet flowered details are perfection!

Of course, the Kate Spade earrings are too fun!  I just can’t get enough of the neon!!!  Sometimes going all-out on neon can be, well, a little too much.  I really have to be in the mood to pull off bright neon.  These earrings are like a low-commitment alternative to the neon trend.

I love the Kate Spade flat pouches too.  And the whole tennis theme is something I can definitely get into.  (Although, I have some not-so-great memories of playing tennis in elementary school that I’m not quite sure I can get past!)

Or, you can opt for a little bit of green around your wrist.  The green + gold combination definitely give off a “pot of gold at the end of the rainbow” vibe.

You are completly right! Those shorts are so gorgeous!! Perfect for St. Patrick's day and spring and summer. Great picks girl!



That bracelet, those earrings, and the second dress are my all time favorite. I'm a little intimidated by green pants, but still sort of want to try them this spring. Fun picks, girl 🙂

I LOVE that your outfits aren't totally overwhelming with green while it still uses a lot of great shades! I love St. Patrick's Day, but I hate being all kelly green – I guess it's just not my color! The little pop of green on each of these pieces is such a great accessory – LOVE it!

Hope your celebrating day was/is fabulous!!


i am in absolutely LOVE with that green seersucker swimsuit – i have always wanted to try one of those more feminine-cut swimsuits, but i haven't done it yet. i think they're so chic & understated. maybe this summer it'll be time to seek one out! also, i used that same kate spade flat pouch in my fancies this week. great choices!
