Happy St Patrick’s Day everyone! I had promised myself I would stay in this weekend and get lots of my dissertation done, but as soon as I realised it was St Patrick’s Day this Saturday I swiftly changed my mind! Usually on Saturdays I laze about all day and then have a mad rush to get ready in the evening, but this week I’m organised, dressed and watching the rugby – no drink in hand yet though, will wait a wee bit longer for that!
I didn’t want to go too over the top so I’ve decided to wear my favourite black dress and add some green accessories. Although it doesn’t look that great in the photos, this dress is so nice and flattering in real life. I think the wrap style of the dress goes really well with the big obi belt. I love bright belts for adding a bit of colour to my outfits, especially as I always seem to end up wearing black dresses for nights out!
These shoes aren’t green, but any excuse to wear them is good enough for me! I usually only buy cheap heels as I am the worst at ruining shoes, but I’m so glad I bought these. They’re so pretty, and the glitter doesn’t seem to have fallen off at all yet (touch wood).
An email dropped into my inbox the other day from Sourz with a couple of cocktail recipes created for St Patrick’s Day. I love the sound of the Emerald Appletini, will definitely be trying that one out this evening! I love making cocktails at home, it’s always fun to experiment and attempt to invent your own ones.
Are you celebrating St Patrick’s Day today? Will you be trying out some homemade cocktails?
