Of the Emerald Isle

Today is the day that the world professes to be Irish. It’s the only day on which it’s acceptable to consume something as vile as artificially-coloured green beer, and to dress in as many clashing shades of green as one can find in one’s closet. However, on St. Patrick’s Day I value discretion; and so I am presenting a stylish, classic, and restrained Éire-inspired outfit on this oft-overdone holiday. Of the Emerald Isle
A lacey white top paired with a deep green skirt reminds me of the contrast of colours between the traditional Irish cottage and the vibrant green of Irish landscapes. This outfit is imbued with a bit of the vintage flavour that I love thanks to the lace-up shoes and elegant camel coat; and Celtic inspiration is evident in the bold and beautiful gold jewellery. The handbag is by Orla Kiely, a successful Irish fashion designer, and shimmering green nail polish adds a final touch of character perfect for the theme. I personally have some Irish heritage (every day, not only on March 17…), and to celebrate that I’ll be wearing an outfit similar to this one today!
