How to Utilize your Wardrobe for St.Patrick's Day

Hello, babes! I hope this blog post sees you well. This weekend is St.Patick’s day, what are you up to? Ricky & I are actually going away for a little rest & relaxation which will be super nice. But, some of you probably have way cooler plans like parades, bar crawls, 5k’s etc.

So, you want to dress for St.Paddy’s day but don’t want to buy something special or want to avoid getting pinched for not wearing green? Let’s face, it buying something cheesy to wear for one day can be fun but I would much rather save my $$ & wear something I already own. Below you will find FIVE different looks that are already in my closet, all of which incorporate green! Festive, cost efficient, & chic! What more could a girl want?

Look #1: These mottos leggings are so fun & edgy. I simply paired them with a black & white flannel accompanied by my faux leather jacket. Completing the look with a statement chain necklace & black booties.

Look #2: I brought out my olive maxi skirt which is super comfortable. This is outfitted with a stripe crop top, denim jacket, & scarf. Topping off the look with a fun hat!

Look #3: It’s going to be a whopping 41 degrees in my town on Sunday, maybe I’ll be able to show off a little ankle in this midi dress. This look is simple yet casual, completed with sneaks & a utility vest.

Look #4: I absolutely love this camo jacket! I literally wear it once a week. But I have paired it with a graphic tee, jeans, & wedges. If you have an Irish-esc tee-shirt it would be fun to put it underneath a jacket like so. Hoping the weather is warm enough where you are to wear open toes!

Look 5#: I am obsessed with my olive tencel overalls. They have become a staple in my wardrobe but these are also a great wear to show Irish pride in a fashionable way. Here I have them back to my espadrilles & an off the shoulder top but can easily go back to a graphic tee.

Well, beauties! I hope these 5 looks have given you inspiration to flip through your existing wardrobe to create a chic St.Patrick’s day look! It doesn’t have to scream “kiss me, I’m Irish” but it will definitely avoid you from getting pinched by some random stranger at the bar. Till next time!

How to Re-wear your Bridesmaid Dress

Hello, beautiful! We have all been in a wedding at some point in our lives. Which we spent easily $100 plus on that you probably won't wear again. Well today I am going to show you a way to wear that bridesmaid dress & bring down your cost-per-wear. Of course you can always wear said bridesmaid dress to another wedding but have you ever thought about dressing down your bridesmaid dress?

This dress I wore in my friend's wedding at the end of May for her rustic chic special day. On her wedding day I wore this with nude stiletto sandals, diamond stud earrings, & diamond tennis bracelet with my hair & make up done by the pros, I obviously wouldn't wear that look on the regular. To dress this lovely number down I traded my stilettos for espadrille wedges, threw on a denim jacket, & added a fun tote by Cappelli Straworld, Inc. Now I can wear my bridesmaid dress to a wedding/bridal shower, to lunch with the girls, or date night by the water with the hubs.

I absolutely love this pineapple tote, I will be bringing it everywhere with me this summer. How perfectly does it go with this look?! Cappelli is known for their resort/staycation clutches & totes. Their product presents great quality & attention to detail. Their spring/summer line includes: nautical, artisanal, festival, patterning & stripes, tropical, chic beach, animal print, & glitter. Their bags generally range from $25 to $75. They are celebrating their 60th anniversary & are owned by Dorfman Pacific, when I was a  boutique manager I actually bought their product for the store. 

Well fash dolls I hope this post has inspired you to dress down your bridesmaid dress so you are able to wear it again. Till next time.

Stay Sassy & God Bless!
