Just Add Green for Luck! - Doused in Pink - a fashion and lifestyle blog

Just Add Green for Luck!


Happy Monday! Did everyone enjoy the weekend? It was a beautiful 60 degrees in Chicago and the perfect weather for the St Patrick's day parade. Speaking of St Patrick's day, my friend Colleen had a St Patrick's Day/Bon Voyage party for us and another family in our neighborhood that are moving next month. I made this delicious Green Sangria recipe that Carrie from Curly Crafty Mom posted last week. It was a refreshing change from a traditional red sangria and the perfect drink to celebrate the beginning of spring!

Today I'm happy to be collaborating with my friend Susan, from Charming Lucy to show you two outfits to get your green on for St Patrick's Day. Susan styled her green sweater with leopard slip-ons and added a pop of pink with her Kendra Scott tassel necklace. What I like about her outfit is that it's festive without being over the top. Make sure you stop by Susan's blog today to say hello and see the rest of her outfit photos!

We still had plenty of snow on the ground when I took my photos, but after this weekend, most of it is gone and it's so nice to see grass (it's dull and brown, but still, grass!). I layered a few green pieces and styled them with my white jeans and riding boots to tone it down a bit. This look was perfect to take me to the St Patrick's day festivities without being overboard on the green.






Are you wearing green today?

Thank you for stopping by and reading!

  2. I love green but I have to be really careful with it as some shades of green can wipe me off. To really think about it, I don't really have anything green apart from a really deep green button down of which I hardly ever pull out. You look green and the color really compliments your skin tone. By the way, we have another Mrs C down there ;)

  5. I am just in love with your white and green look!! I didn't know that they made that necklace in silver! I have a similar one in gold but I love the silver! Do you have a Stella and Dot rep? Thanks for the fun and have a great week Jill! Susan

  6. Haha. I'm feeling the same way. It might be brown grass, but it's still grass!

    I love green with white. Happy early St. Patrick's Day!

    You look great in green and I have been itching to get my white skinnies out more and more now that it is warming up. I can't believe you still have snow on the ground there! I have always loved that necklace, maybe one day I will buy it. Thanks for mentioning my green sangria, I had no idea it'd be so popular! I really need an excuse to make another batch.

  27. Really cute look. At first glance I thought your sweatshirt was a knit sweater. Regardless, it looks adorable on you. Great choice. I too like the mix of high-low items. That being said, I can't believe those boots are by Sam Edelman. They look like they would be from a much higher designer. You have a great eye.

  32. I really like the green mixed with white and tan, as green tends to be difficult to mix with other colors, but this look totally works, you look fab!
