We are sisters that grew up in different decades with completely different personal styles, but we both enjoy finding a bargain and having fun with fashion. We don’t spend lots of time and money on clothing, but we like to work with what we have, be creative, and share style ideas and tips.

St. Patty's Style

Emerald, mint, pea, lime, asparagus, apple, olive, chartrues, honey dew, teal or hunter; which is your favorite shade of green? St Patrick's Day has us thinking a lot about the calming, nature-inspired color. Here are some of our favorite "lucky" green pieces and color combos from our closets:

Little Sis chose to pair up a soothing sea foam green with dark gray for a casual, everyday look. A light color like this can really pop when combined with gray. 

Since I look deathly ill in anything but blue greens, I wore a light teal blouse with dark pink skinny jeans and pops of white. Pink and green don't always make for an appealing combo, but some shades can really work together!

Little Sis paired a forest green tank top with a honey-dew colored bag. We love seeing outfits with different variations of the same color! With these traditional greens, she's sure to avoid getting a pinch. 

This tulle dress from Downeast Basics is one of only two green clothing items that I own (the teal blouse  above is the other), but it's made me fall in love with green, specifically this pale mint color. I combined the mint dress with a black belt, shoes, and accessories to add some needed contrast.

Below are some supremely cute St Patty's Day accessories from Etsy that we wished we owned. Where is a wish granting lephrachaun when you need one?   

And last, but definitely not least, here are our favorite green-themed outfits collected from some of our awesome blog readers: 

Check out Jaxon and Jordan Ziegler. You can't get much luckier than these cute kids. Nobody is greener than Hulk. Why limit your costume wearing to Halloween when it works on St. Patrick's Day too?! And I'm  certain that Jordan's hair is the greenest hair I've ever seen. These kids definitely know how to rock the official color of the Irish! 

This is my gorgeous sister-in-law Emily. She's wearing a muted green skirt and necklace, with a coordinating belt and boots. She might get pinched on St. Patrick's Day though. Not because she's not wearing green, but because she looks so dang cute. 

Samuel Crandall Bender is a lucky lad in this shamrock green necktie. It's the perfect St. Patrick's Day accessory for men! 

Our adorable Momma plans on rocking this emerald green paisley blouse paired with creme pants and a matching scarf. She's always been great at dressing up for holidays, and St. Patty's Day is no exception.
