Green: The color of my first car (a Volkswagen beetle, formerly my grandmother's), my mom's eyes, the Girl Scout sash I once donned, and the pistachio pastries of my childhood cruelly discontinued by Dunkin' Donuts sometime in the '90s. Green is a color of happy memories, but, upon considering a St. Patrick's Day outfit, one I've realized is not very present in my closet.

For a girl like myself of proud Irish descent (Erin go Bragh!), that's decidedly a problem. I got to window shopping, and it turns out green is just as rich and lovely a hue in clothes and accessories as it is in my most cherished flashbacks. Stock up on one (or a few) of my favorite green things here to avoid getting pinched tomorrow.

Sláinte!
