Accidentally Green

Wednesday, March 17, 2010
If you couldn't tell already, I am not Irish. Today's green was by accident! I was running late today so I hurriedly threw on what I wore last night while out with a friend (with the exception of the pearl necklaces). At least, no one pinched me today....or last night.

  8. a perfect accident!!! Love the green jacket.

    I actually bought the same tee from ON last night :)you have giving me inspiration on how to wear it. Also, I have been eyeing that bag from there too (but in green and blue). My mother in law bought me the black bucket one from ON for christmas and it's become my favorite purse.

  37. I've never considered wearing blue and green in the same time,but as I can see from your outfit,they make a great combo !

    ReplyDelete
  38. Looking great as usual. I love the last picture of you too. I always thought Koreans and Irish had a strong connection. Like we have a strong national identity, we like soccer, we hate the Japanese/English, and we experienced lots of economic growth in the past decades (Korea is an "Asian Tiger" and they called Ireland the "Celtic Tiger". Really!) Plus, my mom's whole family is super Catholic, drink a lot, and I have nuns and priests-to-be on that side of the family. What could be more Irish than that?
    Happy St. Paddy's to you!

  39. I am bummed about the meet-up but we have plans that have been in the works for a while and can't be changed. Out-of-towners. I hope this one is tons of fun and you do another one soon!

    You're right about those S.T. clothes. I dig the crochet lavender top. Very sweet.
