9 Ways to Wear Green This St. Patty’s Day

Yesterday afternoon, I did my hair and makeup and marched out to campus to take some blog photos for the week, including a green outfit to share for a St. Patrick’s Day-themed post.

Usually I would associate this kind of out-of-the-box outfit creation with the summer months (for example, last summer I styled a skirt as a top and it was a huge hit), but I had a more difficult time thinking of creative winter-appropriate outfits. That is, until I remembered this furry pink tube scarf lurking in the back of my closet! Continue reading “Wearing Your Scarf as a Skirt?”
