Visible St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick's Day this year was the perfect occasion to wear a green blouse I purchased months ago on sale and had never worn yet.
I got at our Olsen Europe store. 
 It's an outlet version where last season's stock from the big city stores go to die find a frugal home.
I'm not one to wear green, especially by my face so this blouse definitely makes me feel 'visible' because I'm outside my comfort zone.  But, I think it's good to step out of ones fashion comfort zone...especially for a fun holiday!

My favourite part of this outfit though is an accessory.
This ring:
This was given to me by my father this past Christmas and for this outfit it was my pot o' gold.

  1. Your ring is beautiful. I like the blouse too. I'm partial to a plaid. Happy belated St. Patty's Day. I'm not Irish, but I did cook corned beef. :-)

  4. Oh, I like the pot of gold. The blouse is really pretty wonderful--I like it because it is sheer.

    1. I think being sheer is what drew my to it in the first place. I picture wearing it casually over a simple bathing suit or over a white tank and white skirt.
