Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I haven’t decided yet what I’m wearing today, but if it’s anything good, I’ll be sure to post it. I’m sure it will involve something green… =D
I wore this outfit to my brother-in-law’s 30th birthday party. Hope you enjoy!

The necklace features an image of Anne Boleyn, one of Henry VIII’s ill-fated wives. I really like historically inspired stuff. If you’ve ever watched the show Ugly Betty, you might recognize the “B” necklace that she wears in this picture of Anne Boleyn. It was a very famous piece of historical jewellery and you can purchase replicas all over the place now. You can even get it made with your own initial.
I really like the skirt because floral patterns are very trendy this season. When I was over in England and Ireland last summer, it was everywhere. It seems like we’re a bit behind here… When I look at the UK sites now, it seems to be all about the Aztec prints (which I must say I’m not a huge fan of), so maybe that’s next summer’s thing for North America. That’s my style forecast for today! What do you all think?
