Irish Catholic









The things you learn from reading blogs. I never knew about the St. Patrick's Day tradition of wear green or get pinched. So many of you have mentioned it though that it must be pretty widespread. I always wore green on St. Patrick's Day because . . . well . . . it was St. Patrick's Day.

To show my total Irish Pride, I threw on an orange scarf for my commute today.

Where:
work

What:
Plaid Wool Jumper: vintage from my mother
White Button Down: Moda Int'l
Brown Ribbed Sweater Tights: Ellen Tracy
Faux Suede Boots: Predictions
Shamrock Earrings!!: can't remember
Ring: my high school class ring
Suede Jacket: Blazing Saddles (from a vendor in Covent Garden, London)
Orange Scarf: ?? (came with a sweater)
Green Gloves: ??
Hat: Filippo Catarzi (thrifted)

  9. Adorable! You must be one of the few people who can successfully pull of green and orange. I totally forgot to wear green and all Irish students looked at me all suspect. I was in Chicago for fake St. Paddy's Day. So much fun!

  12. Irish Catholic is such an appropriate title - this reminds me a lot of the jumpers I wore in grade school, but it's so much more fashionable and sophisticated. Great outfit! :)
