grown up green

top (h&m, similar)/pants (gap - in black here, similar - on sale)/shoes (joan and david, love these)/clutch (clare vivier)/sunglasses (rebecca minkoff)/watch (michele)

Even though I'm not Irish I still like to celebrate with my Irish friends on this holiday by mixing a little green into my ensemble and eating corned beef and cabbage. Finding a green that doesn't scream "I'm here to party" seems to be easier these days with all the fatigue and camo colored items in stores, which, to me, feel a little more grown up. I recommend mixing the color with some other neutral colors like tan and black, add a little metal and leopard for good measure and you're ready to roll.

  1. Ooh, I love the rich color of the green in these pants. I agree that it makes them more sophisticated than playful, which is often necessary in grown up life. Love the tank you paired them with, too. :)

  2. This is an awesome compromise to still stay in character with the holiday but still be easy breezy about it! love the leopard clutch as the finishing touch! Glad to have you back at Manic Monday! Carylee |

  3. I didn't even wear green this year, never mind get really drunk. My job is a life/fun blog

    I love those jeans!
