Luck of the Irish

3.18.2012



C&A navy striped blazer (get the same look here)
Ann Taylor white tank blouse with ruffle neckline
Bershka green drop pocket pants (last seen here)
Michael Kors grey suede pumps (on sale here)
Nanette Lepore handbag
Vintage snakeskin belt with gold lion clasps

While hunting through her closet yesterday for something green, Lauren paired together rolled-leg cargo pants and an amazing green snakeskin belt with gold lion clasps. She then showed up at my apartment to find I was also wearing green rolled-leg cargo pants with a chunky pearl necklace complete with a gold lion medallion at the end. I promise, we don't plan these things--and anyway it was too late for one of us to change.

After a mini fight over the jacket that Lauren refused to take off even though it offended my anything-print sensibilities (stripes count), I will admit when seeing these photos that she was right. Without the jacket the look just isn't complete. Add some green beer to the mix and she was set.

We stumbled across this location on our way to our first St. Patrick's Day-o'drinking stop and the photographer in me squealed when I saw how the yellow line popped against the green and blue colors in Lauren's outfit. What luck.

xx, M
