Outfit of the Day - St. Patty's Style

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Just a quick note, to show my outfit of the day. 

I don't own a lot of green things, so I was really happy when I rustled through my closet and found an old, green knit dress I'd picked up from a local vendor fair about two years ago. 

I was inspired by my recent trip up to Silverlake, and I wanted to go for a hippie-ish sort of vibe. So I pulled on a little cardi, threw on a belt and some jewelry and pulled on some boots. I was a little leery at first, but I'm think I'm happy with how it turned out:



I've forgotten how much I love this dress. It's very light and extremely comfortable, and it reminds me of the dresses I've seen from Bailey 44 or Ella Moss or Michael Stars. And it's a shade of green I actually like!

I can't say enough about the earrings, too. The super delicate and pretty, and incredibly light so you don't even feel them. You should check out Oh, Hello Friend's Etsy Store - she has the most AMAZING handmade jewelry!

  • Dress: From a little label called "Nikibiki"
  • Cardigan: Nordstrom Brass Plum (on sale for $24.90!)
  • Belt: Anthropologie Linea Pelle Snakebite Belt (backordered forever)
  • Necklace: J.Crew (Fall/Winter 2009)
  • Earrings: Oh, Hello Friend
  • Boots: Frye (purchased from Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2009)

Okay, I'm off to the hockey game! Wish me luck staying warm, in this ensemble. Haha! And Go Ducks!!!

  4. @shira & Theresa - Thanks for your sweet comments! I'm so glad you like our blog! =)

    @Linda L. - Thanks!! I'm wearing the heather grey color in this photo, but I also own it in white and I love them. It's junior sizing, so it's still pretty fitted on me even though I sized up to a Medium. Great price point for it, too!
