What I Wore: St. Patty’s Day | Thrift Style Thursday

March 19, 2015

Today’s Thrift Style Thursday theme is “St. Patrick’s Day” courtesy of Beth from Bethie the Boo.  I think there was a little confusion over the dates when we were picking themes, but no matter, I decided a little retrospective post was just fine for me!  So, here’s What I Wore: St. Patty’s Day:

At first, I was a little worried that this theme would be hard for me since I don’t really celebrate the holiday and I didn’t think I owned much green.  But then I looked in my dresser and realized that I own a lot more green than I thought, including this perfect kelly green shirt I got on clearance from Old Navy years ago for only $4!

That didn’t stop me from hitting up my favorite local thrift stores, however, and looking for some fun pattern pants.  I didn’t find any pants, but I did find these super cute floral shorts for only $4 AND matching green and tan sandals for only $4 as well!!

I especially love the tropical feel of these shorts, which made choosing a location to shoot easy: palm trees!  Unfortunately, I had a really hard time with the lighting because it’s been so bright and sunny and warm here lately (boohoo ;)).  I also love the contrast between the stripe cardigan and the fun patterned shorts.

I’m sure this outfit doesn’t exactly scream St. Patty’s Day so much as is-it-summer-yet?!, but it does have a lot of green, right??  Did you do or wear anything special for the holiday this week?

    I love the look! It does have a summery feel to it, but I’m itching for summer, so that’s cool with me! I love your backdrop too. I can’t wait to see more greenery around here!

    I’m loving this pattern on pattern look! It’s a subtle St Patty’s Day reference, but a very beautiful spring reference. All the colors are so fun and bright, perfect for this time of year! Love all of it :)

    Love the shoes and the shorts. I so badly wish it was sandal weather here. We’re getting lower on the snow, but I definitely can’t pull off shorts yet. :P Give it about 2 months, and then hopefully I’ll have cute floral shorts like you! (Too bad we weren’t the same size… hint hint). :)
