Green St Patrick's Day Lookbook | Designing From My Closet

Happy St Patrick’s Day!  I can’t believe we are officially in the spring season beginning Monday.  Time sure is flying by.  Green is my absolute favorite color and has been ever since I can remember, so dressing for St Patrick’s Day has always been a special treat for me.  Here are four looks I recently pulled together from items in my closet that have green in them.  They not only are appropriate for today, they are perfect for all Spring long!  Most of these items have been thrifted or purchased at discount retailers such as Target and Charming Charlie so they are very budget friendly.

Valentine’s Day is almost upon us and I wanted to put together a lookbook that was centered around the color pink.  These looks meant for inspiration have one thing in common besides the color pink and that is having a touch of romance.  And just because it is Valentine’s Day does not mean that you have to get super dressed up.  I lead a very relaxed lifestyle and my husband and I enjoy laid back dates.  With all that in mind I came up with two more casual looks and two dressed up looks.
