St. Patrick's Day Style feat. Catherines
Just in case you guys weren't paying attention to my specific combination of red hair/ green eyes/ freckles, I am of Irish decent. I know, you're all shocked aren't you? But it's true. I could probably write a 10 minute blog post on growing up Irish but I'll spare you. Just know this, I'm proud to be Irish and proud to celebrate my heritage in the month of March. For my friends and family, it usually means multiple parades filled with our uniform clad uncles and cousins, our cute little Irish step dancing little ones, bag pipes and AOH flags and lots of laughter and fun. The latter of which is what makes me most proud to be Irish. It's always a month filled with family fun activities, all celebrating who we are and where we come from.
And a month of activities means ONE thing....
A MONTH of looks!
You know I love a good activity-based ensemble, but when you have a calendar of events you need more than one option! So I partnered up with my friends at Catherines to show you guys a few of my Saint Patrick's day (er, month) looks!
There's an old Irish saying; If you’re lucky enough to be Irish… You’re lucky enough!
And it's true. But in case you're not, I welcome you to celebrate, in style with the below looks! And because I want to share my heritage with you all, each look has a fun proverb, quote or blessing beneath it. Take one with you as you head out to your festivities and share it over a proper pint!
So, Sláinte to those of us who are Irish and those who pretend they are!
CUTE & CASUAL
"May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light, may good luck pursue you each morning and night"
I wanted to wear something green and festive but without being too "in your face". This look was comfortable and stylish whilst remaining casual enough for a family filled adventure. This Harbor Plaid Top was a no brainer grab & go item. It paired perfectly with my look Ruched Sleeve Cardi & a pair of skinny jeans with sneakers.
If you own anything from Catherines it should be the something form their AnyWear Collection. It's a full assortment of super-stretchy, comfortable, silky-smooth fabric that is nearly wrinkle free. The items pack well, wear well and pair well with anything in your current wardrobe! A true mix/match capsule. Trust ya girl, get into it!
Fit Note: I am wearing a 2X in the top, 1X in the cardi.
Style Note: I sized up on the Harbor Plaid Top for length, but really could have stayed in my true size. This is a matter of personal preference, but both pieces fit true to size.
ON THEME & PLAYFUL
"May the winds of fortune sail you, May you sail a gentle sea. May it always be the other guy who says, 'this drink's on me.'"
Listen, why do the kids get to have all the fun? I want a flipping flippin' sequin shirt in celebration of Saint Patrick's Day, OK?!?!!
Thankfully, Catherines came to the rescue with this super cute, albeit kitschy, and totally comfortable sequin swipe shamrock tee for the big day! I paired the tee with the everyday pant and a pair of black flats and BOOM - chic, simple and playfully on theme!
Fit Note: I am wearing a 1X in the pants. I am wearing a 2X in the tee.
Style Note: I have smaller/ more fit legs and carry the majority of my weight in my belly. I could have probably sized down to the 0X to avoid any puckering or bunching, but these are very comfy. NOTE: they are not a ponte material so they do have some structure to them but are def. a great pant for work and travel!
PUT TOGETHER & POLISHED
"May your troubles be less, And your blessings be more. And nothing but happiness come through your door"
Looking to wear something holiday inspired to the office? Perhaps you have an event and the dress code specifically states "No Sequin Shamrock Tee". No worries, Catherines has us covered on all bases! This Riverview plaid duster is such a versatile piece! Stylish, lightweight and comfortable with pops of color and a touch of trend.
Fit Note: I am wearing the 2X in the duster. Its oversized and big (if you prefer a more fitted / true to six), order your standard size here.
Style Note: SUPER Versatile, this duster can be worn open or closed, with leggings or jeans, with a tee shirt and shorts, as a bathing suit coverup or styled as I did over a black jersey dress with ankle booties! Have fun with it and make your wardrobe work overtime!
So there ya have it. A few Saint Patrick's Day inspired looks, all available to shop now at Catherines!
