I was looking back on my St. Patrick's Day outfits from the last couple years (you can see them here, and here), and realized that I haven't added much green — and, in fact, I've subtracted some — since I posted those looks.
In fact, my initial look included the green polka dot shirt from my 2014 post, and the green vest I wore last year. But I'm all about comfort this week, so I fell back on this soft flannel shirt dress that, I'll be honest, I rarely wear because it looks lousy unless I iron it.
As I have noted before, I am not remotely Irish and don't celebrate St. Patrick's Day in any meaningful sense. But I like theme dressing, so here we are.
Explaining this stuff to my 4-year-old is tough. Explaining holidays, and traditions, and cultural norms, to a 4-year-old is tough. Sometimes I get really into it and find it really rewarding, and other times it's really confusing and draining and seems treacherous. So pretty much it's like every other aspect of parenting, in a nutshell.
Entire outfit thrifted (all but shoes are vintage)
Total cost to me: About $12
