17 Days of Green What I Wore

17 Days of Green, 2014: Week One

Coming off of two months of not really wearing more than yoga pants and workout gear, getting into the spirit of 17 Days of Green by actually getting into my closet felt a little challenging. At first. Now, with one week under my (green) belt, I’m reminded how much I love green and clothing I already own.

A friend asked this week if I have a game plan for what I’m wearing on which day. Answer: Nope. I totally fly by the seat of my pants, the main bonus being that my wardrobe is largely comprised of lovely green things. It’s pretty easy for me to pick. I do have a general idea of what I might like to wear on our Pittsburgh getaway this coming weekend. And I have something really cool, or three really cool somethings, to wear this week sent to me from my great aunt. But otherwise, yeah, this is just me, wearing green clothes.

I had no energy to take a “real” picture after this 13.1 Pittsburgh Marathon training run, so an Instagram compilation has to suffice!

17 Days of Green: Day 9

Notes from this week: My shamrock necklace broke today. I feel devastated. I don’t know if I have enough time to grab any from Etsy that would be delivered in time for us to leave on Friday. I’m really kind of sad about it. I love my shamrock necklace and wear it as a casual, everyday necklace much of the year.

If you’re wondering, I have lots of green left for this week and into the official St. Patrick’s Day celebration next Monday. Don’t worry!

In Station Square, we experienced the best photobomb. Ever.

Best. Photobomb. Ever.

And enjoyed heading back to our hotel — before 9pm.

Go ahead. Make a face. I'll instagram it. Love you. @cfd46! On the T, headed back to the hotel. Before 9pm. #pittsburgh #stpatricksday

Breakfast involved green bagels.

Bruegger's Bagels made green bagels today. I have a happy. #stpatricksday #green #17daysofgreen

And our early lunch found us at our annual stop at Primanti Bros, Market Square.

Then we picked up our dog, hit my brother’s new house and then drove to pick up our kids. They missed their Daddy.

I think they missed Daddy.

Tomorrow I will wear all black or a rainbow of all colors — except green. I had fun greening with you this year.

May the road rise up to meet you, may the wind be ever at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face and the rain fall softly on your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the hollow of his hand. -Irish Blessing

Until next year!
