Molly's St. Patrick's Day Style: Green with Envy

If you know us, you know we don't play around when it comes to a theme. And St. Patrick's Day is one theme we definitely don't take lightly. As Jodi mentioned in her totally fab St. Paddy's day post, her heritage is mostly Irish, and though I have yet to do a DNA test, I know that a lot of my family came from Ireland as well. I've been wearing green all week gearing up for St. Patrick's day, but this dress is making my green sweaters green with envy.

I've been trying on a lot of midi dresses lately, but most haven't been too flattering. However, when I tried this baby on, I knew it would be coming home with me. The cinched detail on the bust pulls the shape of the dress in and really gives some shape to the bodice of the dress. The long sleeves and shoulder pads (yes, shoulder pads!) play up the 80's vibe that is actually just now becoming the 2018 vibe. 

Though the cut of the dress is conservative, it has slits on the leg and the fabric is form-fitting, so it's equal parts business and fun. Speaking of fun, I snagged this green sequin clutch from Horticulture KC in their vintage collection, but I've linked some similar purses below. 

I'm also loving these fishnet booties to add a mix of texture and pattern into basically any ensemble, and I think they balance out the wild green pattern beautifully. 

Oh, and speaking of '80s, large geometric earrings are on their way to being everywhere! I love these giant black scalloped earrings that are just enough '80s with a touch of art deco. I dressed them up here, but I think they'd be a fun fancy addition to a more casual look as well. 

Well, I'm off to get geared up for celebrating 'ol St. Pat. We're planning on hitting up a parade and some local bars with friends. I may or may not bust out my dance moves at some point during the day. Will you be celebrating? Let us know what you're up to in the comments!
