A Movie-Worthy St. Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day, my dears! I'm part -Irish myself, so I think it's no coincidence that I've always been a big fan of March 17th. Even one of my (five) names is Irish, so you know I must be a fan.

Genetics aside, I think part of my fondless towards St. Patrick's Day is the fact that so many people choose to dress in green to celebrate the day. Even card-carrying members of Corporate America (such as myself), a land where work-appropriate attire reigns supreme, are decked out in all hues of emerald, moss, and lime. I've seen mint-colored button down shirts on the guys, gorgeous blue-green wrap dresses on the ladies.

Walking through the halls of my work today, in quite a chipper mood, has made me feel like I'm literally walking inside one of my favorite movie scenes. I loved the flick 500 Days of Summer, but especially loved Tom's dance scene. Not only is it playing one of my favorite songs, but I love the visual quality of the clip. Have you ever noticed that everyone in the dance scene is wearing some shade of blue or bluish-green? I think it brings such a neat effect to an already amusing scene.

Being surrounded by so many similarly-clad corkers has me tempted to start
dancing, singing Hall & Oates at the top of my lungs, to see who joins along.

Erin go Bragh!

I read that the blue-centric theme was used to complement the blue of Zooey Deschanel's (Summer) eyes. Fabulous movie!

Your Irish name rocks. Actually, not really, your 3rd name is my favorite. But you know I'm partial to the 2nd :) Smooches!

That's one of my favorite parts too - there's no "political correctness" pitfalls to the holiday, no one whining about Hallmark, no one worrying about family coming in and messing up their routine. Just people wearing green and being happy. :)

I love pink and green (huge lilly lover here), so st. pat's day only gives me another excuse to deck out in bright green to work. :)

I started a blog that I think you might like too. It combines fashion and giving back to charities. Each week, I will give away 1 Lilly Pulitzer dress (this week it’s the Pink Adelson Shift from Spring 2010) to one lucky follower, who raises awareness of the blog's selected charity through various ways such as tweeting about it or commenting with an interesting fact. I am currently also giving away some great Lilly stationary items too. Please check out my blog at because doing good is chic!
