Being Green

With St. Patrick's Day on Sunday, I thought this would be a great time to take advantage of this year's Pantone color.

{Top: Charming Charlie (old) Cardigan: Forever 21 (old), Skirt: H&M (similar), Shoes: Nine West, Tights: Target, Necklace: Bauble Bar (old), Bracelets: David Yurman, Bauble Bar, t+j Designs}

And now this week's Friday Love-It Notes!

1. Being the only asian person at a St. Paddy's Day parade and loving it. I've totally embraced my Irish roots!

2. Bridesmaid dress shopping for my best friend's wedding. Even though my best friend and I had already picked out dresses online (and basically planned her entire wedding) way before she even got engaged (come on ladies, don't act like you didn't do it too), it will still be fun to go and try on everything.

3. Getting home from work and it still being sunny out. Totally worth losing that hour of sleep!

For those of you worried about Google Reader, you can keep up with me on Bloglovin!

I hope everyone has a fun, happy, and safe weekend. And if you're feeling lucky, this is your last chance to enter the $1,000 giveaway!

The wearin' o' the green! It's a good color on you--you look like a natural to attend the parade. I'm glad St. Patrick's is on the weekend, my only green clothes are extremely casual.

It is awfully nice to leave work while it's still daylight (at least on the days that I do).

Hope you two have a great weekend!

You and your bff are so cute. I may be the only girl who doesn't have her wedding planned out in advance. lol Still need to get on top of that and deciding which wedding planner to chose.

I definitely enjoy getting off work and having at least one hour of sunlight.

Have a great weekend!
