So tell me why, the night before St. Patrick’s day, I realized that I own a single green blouse, and that I wore it last week.

For the record, I’m usually not vain about stuff like that, but it’s a blog post day and I just posted the green shirt (I know, I know, poor planning on my part), so clearly the natural course of action is to run out and buy a pair of earrings (I don’t have pierced ears?) and an ugly necklace on a pretty chain, and try to make it work. I think I did alright with this pendant.

I don’t much go for colors other than neutrals, so the beige dress and pinstriped oxford were much less of a struggle Β to put together. And, guys, the skies literally parted for our shoot! It’s been threatening to thunderstorm all day (sic em 90% humidity) but for the twenty minutes that we were taking pictures, the sun came out. Now, you can’t tell at all, but it was still a lovely moment.

This dress is one of my favorites, with its classic silhouette and simple coloring. And, confession, I switched out the laces on some old keds to update my kicks. The two worked nicely, I think, with my more casual shoes dressing down a very professional-type dress. And any chance I have to sneak stripes into an outfit, you know I’m going to take it.

Be safe tonight, fam; enjoy the holiday and the festivities but also #MakeGoodChoices. And do try your level best to not wake up tomorrow with everything (anything) stained green.
