Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! Green is such a great color not only for today so you don’t get pinched (what a weird tradition), but it is perfect for springtime. I don’t normally gravitate towards this color for my clothing, but I do think a pop of green in your accessories is a fresh & fun way to liven up an outfit. I love this color paired with neutrals like white or denim, but I think it also looks amazing when paired with bright colors like yellow or orange!
I was curious as to why we pinch people that don’t wear green on St. Patrick’s Day…so I did a little research. Back in the 1700s, St. Patrick’s revelers thought that wearing green would made a person invisible to leprechauns. The leprechauns were known for pinching any person they could see (ie: those not wearing green), so people began to pinch those not wearing green as a reminder that the leprechauns could see them & to remind them to put on some green! So don’t forget today…. or the leprechauns are going to get you (haha).
