I’m not big into St. Patty’s Day. I’m not a big drinker and I’m always working that day to enjoy any time with my pals… but it’s an excuse to wear green 🙂 I’ll use any excuse to wear the best color on the planet. But there’s a slight problem:
What do we not see? GREEN!
My favorite color ever, ever, ever and I have NONE of it in my own closet? Whaddup with that?
Then I remembered a stash of Starbucks tshirts in my car that my pal Vicky gave to me!
She’s been my bestie since 8th grade… and she also wanted me to make her a pillow from some work shirts she had leftover from the holidays. She gave me four of them… and I decided to steal one for St. Patty’s day
Being the lazy slacker that I’ve become in my old age I kinda just wanted to wear it like this. Alas, my husband made me rethink that scenario, “hashtag ‘metro sexual’.” 😉
So, I decided to try that tshirt trick that everyone and their Aunt Elsie has seen on pinterest: I pulled my arms through the neck hole and tucked the sleeves into the bosom. This still left a bit of the white font exposed, so I pulled out one of Nanny’s brooches to save the day.
Of course, I would never expose my arms so I paired it with a black cardigan
Though it was only 20 degrees (but felt much colder!), I decided to venture outside for some pics
How I’ve missed my outdoor shots
Yeah, it’s still cold…
I had my doubts about this last minute No Sew… Quite honestly, I think they look sloppy, unprofessional, and cheap. That’s why I never do them… but, I was pleasantly surprised by this one. I guess you never know til ya try, right?
