Happy St. Patty’s day ya’ll! In years past I’ve gone a bit more all-out with the green factor on this day, but this year I’m opting for scaled-back level of green with this floral (extremely comfy) Zara top. And not to burst anyone’s bubble, but did you know that green actually isn’t the original color of St. Patrick? He donned blue vestments as he spread the word of the Trinity. Green was believed to come later as a representation of the green countryside of Ireland, as well as the color of the shamrock. So there’s your history lesson for the morning. I don’t know about you all but this was news to me; check out this article for more little-known St. Patty’s facts. The article also says that St. Patrick drove all the snakes from Ireland, so I don’t care if he wore blue, green, purple or stripes… he’s good in my book for that merit alone.

Speaking of things from the past, I’m rocking the seventies-style high waisted jeans today with my St. Patrick’s ensemble. For anyone who is thinking about trying high-waisted jeans: do it! I promise they sound more intimidating than they actually are. For spring I absolutely love the look of high waisted denim on women and they give your outfit an extra element of fun. Now go out and celebrate your Irish roots (regardless of whether or not you actually have them), eat some corned beef and enjoy this green/blue holiday!
