What to Wear: St. Patrick's Day

This week I am participating with a group of some of the loveliest bloggers out there to show you what I'd wear on St. Patrick's Day. Actually, this is exactly what I wore last year, and let me tell you, the fringe on those boots looks awesome when you're doing your best drunker Riverdance.

Dress: H&M
Tights: American Apparel
Boots: Minnetonka
Necklace: A bag on green bead from the dollar store, strung on a length of yarn.
Hair: A dollar store green and white carnation hot glued to a bobby pin
(sometimes it's super easy and inexpensive to make your own seasonal accessories)

I am a big fan of green, but I really like the non-typical choice to go with green leggings rather than a shirt or dress, and finding out I was going out with Kev (who I had only just met) and his friends for St. Pat's at the last minute, well I had to throw something cute together! This year I look particularly Irish, I recently home dyed some red into my hair!

Make sure you hop on over to check out the other ladies showing off what to wear on St. Pat's:

Nicole: Gypsy in Jasper
Marcia: Like a Small Fire
Sondra: Abhaya Yoga
Lisa: notladylike
Lisa: LaLa Faux Bois
Sarah: Exploring Woods
Amanda: Salvaged Strawberry
Shayla: Northern Exposure
Lexi: The Girl Who Says Quack
Stacy: Let it Unravel
Amanda: Little Lady Little City
Katie: Chestnut Mocha
Victoria: Life is Better Blonde
