My Lucky Jeans

Every March I search for something green to wear on St. Patrick’s Day that’s more stylish and original than my beloved “Kiss Me I’m Irish” T-shirt from college.  It’s a pretty easy feat this year with the help of Pantone’s Color of the Year – emerald and the trend turned staple – colored jeans.  I put together four different looks with the same pair of emerald jeans from Aeropostale.  With these ideas I hope to give you some luck when picking out your outfit this weekend!

May you look more polished than a co-ed
May your cup be full with green beer
And may you celebrate with all your Irish-for-a-day friends!

  3. Super Cute!!!

  4. Wow! Sorry for the delay! Thank you Alexis, Aminta and Brave Chica!!! This was my first real try at a personal style post and while I was nervous and hesitant, I'm so happy with the results. Feedback is much appreciated and welcome! Aminta - how'd it go with your green pants? :)
