happy st. patrick’s day {kinda workwear wednesday}

Can I be perfectly honest? I’m not really all that into St. Patrick’s day. Not for any specific reason, but I live in the south and we sort of celebrate the day, but not the extent that they do up north. Also, I have zero Irish heritage so it’s not something that my family was into. I don’t drink green beer and wouldn’t know where to buy green bagels around here.

When I went through my closet to find something green to wear, I found practically nothing. Of all my clothes, I have 2 green t-shirts and that’s it! I got rid of practically all my other green clothes (not on purpose). And super casual t-shirts aren’t exactly the perfect Workwear Wednesday features but this outfit did work for going out to dinner with my family.
