Green Lookbook: Ideas for What to Wear on St Patrick’s Day

Green Lookbook | Designing From My Closet | Plus & Inbetweenie Fashion Blog

St Patrick’s Day to me has always represented a new and fresh way of looking at the new season.  Green has been my favorite color ever since I can remember.  As I went to put together a fun outfit incorporating green, I pulled every single item containing the color from both my clothes and accessories and laid them out on my bed.  I soon realized I had so many items that I decided to create a Green Lookbook containing four outfits using every single green piece I own that will hopefully give you some ideas for what to wear on St Patrick’s Day.  Although a few of these items are new to be shown here on the blog, I shopped my own closet to create the looks.

First Look-3Green Pants aka Outfit on Repeat

This first outfit is one I have shown on the blog before with a few changes.  Before I had a different pair of green pants that just did not fit me correctly.  Although at first glance and in the pictures they looked great, as I moved they were not meant for me, so I sold them on Poshmark and got these Lane Bryant ones that have a fabulous pattern on them.  I have to admit, for some reason these pictures are not the best.  It is weird because I remember feeling all kind of awesome that day.  I tried a new product in my hair after I washed it that morning and it left it a lot softer than I am used to.  The curl fell out of some places, and stuck in others.  Oh well.  I guess we Live, Laugh, and Love!  And speaking of love, I really love these pants.  They are so reminiscent of a pair I saw at Anthropologie it isn’t funny.

Second LookForest Green + Abstract Floral

I have been wanting to pair these two items together for a long time, so I am happy I had the opportunity to do it in this lookbook.  Although the dark forest green is not a “traditional” St Patrick’s green, I still think it qualifies.  With the punches of white, it takes it right into spring.  It is ultra comfy and has a chic look, all good qualities in my book.

Third LookGreen on Green on Green, oh and some Jeans

Although I love all four outfits in this post, this particular one is my favorite.  Is it all the Anthropologie, is it this certain shade of green, is it the lace, is it the amazing fit of these jeans?  Who knows, maybe all of the above.  The day I wore this I went to the nail salon to get a pedicure and all the ladies said how perfect I was for St Patrick’s Day.  I mean, that’s a lot of green!  I also took the pain taking task of straightening my hair to get out of my hair rut.  It is super thick and coarse, so it is not easy.  I must admit, I do love the look.

Fourth LookFloral and Denim all Dressed Up

I was inspired by my friend Hailey of Discourse of a Divine Diva with this look.  We recently collaborated with two other of our friends to show each of us styled this green Bellini and her outfit caught my eye with her floral tank and denim skirt.  I doubled up the chain on this green stone necklace to really let the pendant shine.  I also love the color combination of green, violet, and orange.  Ah, yet another hair style with it straight and pulled back.  This pony tail is something I always want to like, but can never quite get used to.  I am still on the fence if I really like it.

    1. Well thank you so much Amy. I really enjoy putting outfits together and I call outfit planning one of my favorite hobbies. I am so glad you mentioned the links to how I have styled the same pieces in other ways. I am calling it my Remix Feature and I just started doing it over my past few posts.

      Welcome to blogging! I do a mix of inspiration from what I see on my favorite blogs and what I want to do myself, because I can! If you ever have any questions about blogging, I would be happy to help (with the limited knowledge I do have).

      Thank you again for commenting!

  1. This post actually motivated me to put more thought into my St. Patrick’s Day outfit this year. Actually, it motivated me to make a bit more effort in general to prepare for the holiday. With everything going on behind the scenes, I’ve been taking the path of least resistance with cooking, cleaning, and working around the house. Up until last night, I wasn’t planning to cook anything special or dress up for St. Paddy’s Day.

    So thank you for the inspiration and motivation. I’ve set out some green printed dresses to choose from, and I’m planning on making my dad’s traditional corned beef and cabbage for dinner tomorrow.

    Your looks are so inspired and show that St. Paddy’s Day fashion can be so much more than a green t-shirt or solid green dress. The look with the emerald green lace bolero and handbag is my favorite. It’s a lot of green – in the best way. It’s totally your color!

    1. YAH! Although I do not celebrate St Patrick’s Day the way most do, I am obsessed with green and have been ever since I can remember. I hope that your special dinner and fashion will lift up your spirits during these difficult times.

    1. I have to say, I agree with you! I love this look too. For so long I avoided skinny jeans because I felt like they showed my legs too much. I am so glad I finally have the confidence to wear them because I feel really amazing in them!
