Daily Threads: No Green



top: gap {similar}
pants and flats: target {similar}{similar}
clutch: vintage {similar}
necklace: self-made

After snapping these photos, I untucked this top and loved it so much more styled that way. But I didn't care enough to retake the photos. So, just image it not tucked in - it looks better. 

Yes! This is my second chambray shirt. I got it when we were in Hilton Head (thanks, frannycakes!). I love it so much - it's like the spring-time version of a chambray - you all will probably see it quite a bit on here these next few months.

So last night I realized today was St. Patrick's Day. As you can see from these photos, I really like to participate in this holiday. Actually, if I knew if was going to be St. Patty's Day, I probably would have worn green, but in the form of a scarf or something subtle. I'm not into going all out. That's just not my style. Usually.

I love the simple elegance of this outfit!

Don't worry about failing at St. Patrick's Day. I am Irish and didn't even realize what today was until I was out the door and on the way to the train. I am not wearing a lick of green and I am pretty sure I will get pinched all day.

Simple chic, such a perfect casual look. That shirt is gorgeous.
For some reason where I live people take it very seriously and you get pinched a million times if youre not wearing green? I'm irish anyways, so I like participating haha

I'm wearing something REALLY similar today so if I decide to post pics it's going to look like I copied you. Hee hee! But I am wearing a green clover necklace - a little shout out to St. Patrick.

I am not into green, usually, but I love getting all dressed up for any holiday so I am green-ed out.

Those flats are so pretty and fun! I St. Patty's Dayed(a word??!) myself out this weekend, and wore nothing green.

Green is totally overrated, and chambray looks so much better ;)

This is my dream outfit. I love all of your outfits, but for some reason this might be my favorite. Simply and classy. Love it.

Thanks for all the inspiration you provide! It's like getting a free tutorial on how to dress for my engagement pictures coming up! Hahaha.

And keep the tutorial vids coming! I'm always up for new style/hair ideas!

Elizabeth said...

I love the idea of dressing up a simple chambray shirt with leopard print and such a lovely simple necklace. Very chic!

kelseywilliams said...

Those shoes! We haven't seen those before, no? Very cute.

brittni said...

I like this outfit! So classic and cute. I'm in the market for a new chambray shirt for the spring season. They're so versatile! :)

I like that you didn't wear green. I wouldn't have either, only I'm a teacher.. so it's green or get pinched by children all day.

I think you know what I chose.
