A Day in the Life Too... a blog about modest style

A 30-something mom's blog about modest style, DIY stuff, and limiting dessert. Just kidding. We eat dessert first around here.

L is for Loco & Lassie & Laundry. Impressed? There's more where that came from, baby.

 shoes & overshirt: american eagle outfitters. tights: don't recall. skirt: sam's club. (sam's??? i know...i don't know...) shirt & earrings: gift. watch: target.
 Leprechauns wreaked havoc in our living room last night but, thankfully, left behind some chocolate gold coins. I think the sheer wealth of the shiny gold foil went to my head...apparently I thought it would be a good idea to blow my nose into the gold (see below...or don't). This, my friends, is why I should never become a millionaire...which is good to realize now, because I was on the verge...
Please forgive the lightheartedness of this post...and these photos. (And by "lighthearted" I of course mean "lame, immature, juvenile, and all things probably beneath you.") I think the fumes of about 10 gallons of green food coloring used for breakfast has gone to my head.

For those of you without kids, St. Patrick's Day is probably not a big deal. For me and mine, it's huge. My kids demand that every article of clothing be green (they're worried about my welfare, what with my leggings choice, but I assured them I could out-pinch any leprechaun should the need arise). Add to that some green pancakes and green milk for breakfast, and we should be squared away for the day...at least until dinnertime.

Ooooh, tangent: my mom is a firm believer in eating all things green on this day; in fact, in the spirit of St. Pat's one year, she tried boiling hot dogs in green water. May I please please pretty please recommend that that little experiment never be attempted by anyone, anywhere, ever? Thanks.

So. This outfit and post brought to you by the color green and the letter L. (For "lucky," you guys, and most assuredly not the L-on-your-forehead word.)

Happy Thursday!

I LOVE green everything for St. Patrick's Day! I grew up with green milk, green rice, green eggs, green pancakes EVERYTHING! So I dyed my roommates' milk green in celbration. They weren't too happy. I still thought it was fun :)

I LOOOOVE how spirited you get about the holiday(s), if not for the sake of it, at least for your kids! I know they were thrilled with green breakfast, gold coins, and the like! I hope they also noted the pots of gold on Mommy's feet! :)

Hello, my funny friend. I am ashamed to say that I completely forgot about wearing green today...and I had big plans. Not a 'green hotdog' kind of big plan, but like a 'green dress with green shoes with green belt and green cardigan' kind of plans. Placing that big L on my forehead, thank you very much.

I think the photos are super cute! I own like.. no green so I wasn't very festive yesterday but did indulge in a few too many pints ;)

Claire said...

I love the playfulness of this post! The outfit is adorable and I love your kids' idea of dressing in all green! Heehee, that sure is tough though! And I think next year I'm gonna try the green milk and green food, since my daughter will be 4 (the other one will be 2) and probably appreciate it by then.

I can't wait to have kids to serve breakfast to! OR at least students. I'm in school to be a high school teacher and I know for a fact that high school students like weird things like green foods and parties as much as any second grader! :) LOVE, LOVE, LOVE St. Patrick's Day. It would be the perfect day for green eggs and ham.

Super cool giveaway going on now!

Ooops, I didn't mention you. Yeah, that blogger I mentioned who wore a vest with a blazer? Yup, that was you. Sorry I didn't actually say that! I may go change it to link up. Anyway, thanks for the inspiration, it really DOES feel put together!

heehee, i wore a lavender/grey outfit and my landlord was sure he'd get a pinch in - until his grandson found my little embroiderd peacock feather and a couple of other green bits (he's 12, and they're Irish, so it's very important!)

it's so much fun to make a big deal for 'the little people'. have a great weekend! steph

I might just have nightmares about those green hot dogs. Eww. But I love your green-ness, especially that skirt (Sams? Awesome!)
