This outfit was put together rather arbitrarily. I was sandwich-munching in a café and overheard my neighbors chatting excitedly about their upcoming St. Paddy’s Day plans — “start drinking at 9am and sleep at 5pm” — and it reminded me of the green dress I had recently bought (with no idea that the holiday was approaching). I figured it was the perfect occasion for its debut.
The dress is painted a gorgeous emerald hue and finished in a comfortable kimono wrap style. While I was debating what shoes to wear, I realized that these sneakers had a splash of green in them (seriously, it’s hard to believe that I wasn’t preparing for St. Paddy’s all along). Anyway, I’ve loved pairing dressier pieces with sneakers; it keeps the outfit more casual and adds some unexpected funk. The comfort is also a major plus!
I topped the look off with this clutch by Matt & Nat. The design is beautifully minimal, and the addition of a handle is genius — it’s so much easier to carry and allows me to have my hands free if needed (you can slip your entire hand through so that the clutch sits securely on your forearm).
