Lucky Charm: Green & Black/White Stripes

Happy St. Patty’s Day! So when I originally planned this outfit several weeks ago, it was not my intention to post this for St. Patty’s Day. But since I was able to squeeze in a photo shoot today, I was thinking, why not, right? I don’t drink, so this could be my way of interjecting some holiday spirit to celebrate. =)

Anyways, do you ever have those moments when you bought something, had second opinions, returned the item and now wishing you kept it? That was me several weeks ago when I was searching high and low for a green jacket to go with this black and white striped dress from ASOS (side note: use code HAPPYSTPADDYS for 20% off on ASOS today and tomorrow). I just love the two color combo providing a great contrast against each other.

Few years ago, I ordered a green trench coat from Banana Republic, but returned it because I thought I wouldn’t get much use out of it. Till this day, I still think about it every once in awhile – oy. Luckily, my friend, Linda, had several green coats on hand and I remember she had this one below which was the right green shade I had in mind. Thank goodness for that — you could say that she was my lucky charm in this instance. 😉 Although, borrowing it from her had daily interest tacked on until I return the coat to her. Ok, I kid. Many thanks girl for letting me borrow your coat! =)

Since I saw Khatu’s video on how to wear your Chanel bag like a top-handled one, I’ve been loving this new way of carrying the bag. Alright, I hope you enjoyed this outfit and also didn’t party too hard the night before. Also, if you haven’t entered into the Stella & Dot leopard scarf giveaway, be sure to do so before March 23rd.
