Don’t of the Week-Mean Green

So since today is St. Patrick’s Day, we might as well be festive with this week's Don’t!

Now you have to wear green today or you’ll get pinched. Ow! Don’t wear your green the wrong way. So here we go:

#1 Don't put green in your hair! Unless you're under 10 neon colored hair is not that cool. If you do want a bright color chose something like a pink or purple and put it in small streaks on the under side of your hair, that way its not super noticeable. Avoid big chunks and lime green!

#2 Don't do this at all! The lime green plaid, the puff jacket, the matching design, eye overload! If you chose to do lime green plaid, leave it on one piece. Like a blouse or a cardigan, or maybe even shoes. Avoid it on pants and avoid it in matching pieces.

#3 Don't wear turquoise green tights and a puffy green jacket. First, these tights are a don't ever. I'm all for wearing colored tights BUT these tights remind me of the wicked witch of the west. So only break these out at Halloween!

#4 Don't, just Don't. The boots aren't bad and might be adorable with a black skirt or skinny jeans. But these words....except that it reminds me of a bad dance costume from 4th grade! Yikes!

#5 Don't wear green on your feet in flat sneaker form! You might be mistaken for a leprechaun.

DO: wear a little something green! It will add a little festivity to the day with out being cheesy! Wear some jewelry with a hint of green, like a broach on a cardigan, or a ring with a green stone. Break out an emerald tank underneath a jacket, cardigan or blouse. It doesn't have to be much. As you can see from above, a little green goes a long way, and too much goes way farther!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
