A Great Day For The Irish



What I Wore

St. Patrick's Day

Shirt - Target/T-Shirt - Banana Republic/Leggings - Target
Watch - MK/Bracelets - Forever 21/WalMart

Even though I am not Irish (but from what I understand, I do share a family tree with the fourth President of Ireland) on St. Patrick's Day, I like to join in the wearing of the green and eat corned beef and cabbage.  I try to observe every holiday I can by decorating my home, making a special dish or two and learning more about the culture and people that celebrate the holiday.  One thing that I enjoy about living in a city in the United States is the variety of   people I have had the opportunity to get to know.  Even before living in a diversely populated area, I liked to read and dream about visiting other places.  Have you traveled much, do you hope to travel more, or are you more content staying close to home?

  6. Hi Sara!!! Feel like I haven't visited here in forever... sorry about that! But here you are, looking all cute in your St. Paddy's Day plaid. I love green... and we had a delicious dinner of corned beef, cabbage and Irish soda bread! I have a wee bit of Irish in me from my grandfather's line. Every year on March 17th I claim that wee bit and ACT like I'm full Irish! Hope you had a wonderful day! xoxo jules

  7. Hola Sara! Here from the Monday Mingle and traveling is a must for me. As a matter of fact, Ireland is on my bucket list and I look forward to visiting it. I think you'd fit right in with that cute ensemble. Do you celebrate/decorate for holidays like Memorial Day too? I'd like to see some decorations for those if you do! BB2U

  8. Great look for the high holy day, as my Dad used to call it! I'd like to visit Ireland and see where Dad's family came from. Thanks for sharing your look with Visible Monday.

  12. The subject of corned beef and cabbage came up last night as my husband was cooking it. My son and I wondered how the meal came to be associated with the holiday. He told us it's actually an American meal that was appropriated in the 1800s when so many Irish immigrants came over to the States. It was cheap to make. They could only afford a very inexpensive cut of meat and since they had poor to no refrigeration, they'd cure the meat. I never knew that. Pretty interesting! Love your outfit. Very festive. I had on 3 different shades of green and I looked redunkulous! ;)

  13. We had fun watching the high school girls dressed like ridiculous little leprechauns boarding the train for the St Patricks Day parade. One of the bonuses of living right by the train station. All of the fun, none of the claustrophobia of too many drunk morons, dressed in green :-)

  14. I am part Irish and my hubby is 1st generation Irish- American so a big day full of heritage pride... I love to travel and Ireland is on my bucket list...I had fun putting together a post of my favorite Irish songs. Great that you explore and decorate your home! My mother did that but for some reason I never did... admire those who do!

  17. I love participating in holidays too. This one primarily because my Mother was a teacher and made me wear Green to school growing up so the kids would't pinch me. I worked this weekend so the holiday wasn't on my mind. Your outfit is cute though! I LOVE traveling, I try not to repeat places, but seems that I go to Las Vegas and New Orleans regularly. My goal is to get a group to go on the 11 day Paris, London, & Amsterdam trip. #TALU
