Green Week - Polka Dot Cardigan







Get excited!  It's St. Patrick's Day and the first day of GREEN WEEK!  My husband pointed out that I'm not Catholic, so I should really be wearing orange, but green is prettier, and I don't know that I have 5 orange things to wear, so here we are.

This outfit wasn't originally supposed to include green.  My plan was to style my new gray/black dress like this outfit (one of my favorite's from Franish recently).  I was going to wear my black cardigan and boots.  Then I realized I don't really have a similar scarf, and it's close enough to spring that I decided to bust out the floral.  Then I couldn't find my black cardigan, and thought the green in the scarf would go well with my green polka dot cardigan.  Then I checked the weather and realized it wasn't going to be snowy or super freezing, so I went with wedges instead of boots.  So the actual outfit isn't really anything like the inspiration, but that's how it goes sometimes!  Maybe I'll get a chunky knit scarf and try copying Fran again in the fall.

  2. Oh my gosh, you crack me up. I swear I have these internal wars all of the time. I go from copying the original to a very loosely based interpretation. I like what you've done here! And I looooove that floral scarf. I'm looking outside at more flipping snow, so I am yearning for spring.

  4. Haha I'm glad I'm not the only one that gets dressed like that :) I LOVE the cardigan. Seriously, if we lived near each other I would totally come borrow it. It's going to be a good week (because we are wearing green and not orange ha!).
