Happy St. Patrick's Day!
I have to remind myself how great green really is sometimes... Green is a fun color. I don't particularly wear a lot of it or even prefer it for jewelry. (Even though my birthstone is Emerald.) What I love most about it though, is how versatile it can be... take one shade and it's whimsical and fun, and yet another is subtle sophistication.
Perhaps you're not ready to commit to a piece of clothing for this St. Patrick's Day, well then surely a green accessory would do the trick!
I love this large pouch from Comme des Garcons, it can do the business of holding all of your essentials - while still have a light, festive feel to it. This would be the ultimate St. Patrick's Day clutch, but you'd have to LOVE green, for it to have year round longevity...

However, something like this 'Cool Art' wrap by Diane von Furstenberg would be useful long after all of the four leaf clover decorations were put away...

When I really do get down to the business of thinking green though... I do think jewelry. Emerald is the first thing that comes to mind, if I were to associate one thing with the word green. So what better than to have your touch of St. Patty's Day green in a gorgeous pair of earrings?

And even though these shoes look distinctly brown or dark khaki line on the computer screen, their technical color name is "Military Green" - so we'll let them slide, as they look like such a beautiful, yet comfortable heel for Spring:

Have a Happy St. Patrick's Day, and may the luck of the Irish be with you!
