St. Patrick's Day Style All Year Round!


Hi BurdaStylers, and Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I do love this day because 1. I’m from Irish heritage, and 2. Green is my favorite color (and I look great wearing it with my red hair). I once had a motto “Dress up like every day is St. Patrick’s Day”, since I love to wear green. Although I don’t wear it as much as I used to, I still love the color and every shade of it whether it be kelly, emerald, or limegreen. I have pulled some of my favorite sewn in green patterns and styled them in outfits that I would totally wear!
