Green Day

It's too bad that today wasn't EBEW because we're having a "Green Day" at work today.  Kind of an early St. Patty's Day celebration tying in with our fundraising efforts for the March of Dimes and the Heartwalk.  So, we're also having a potluck lunch and if you wear green, you get yours for free.  I happily chose a green shirt again today, like I said earlier this week, I'm a bit Irish so the more green the better!


We're also able to pay to wear jeans today, but I opted for a "jean skirt" to kind of cheat my way around that.  I'm so glad I picked up this Old Navy maxi skirt in a clearance sale last fall - since it seems maxi skirts will be popular again this year.  This skirt is so freaking comfortable, I love it.  I also love that it almost has a vintage feel to it without actually being vintage!


And finally, just for fun, I thought I'd add a little flashback to the early 90's with my favorite old Green Day song.  I'm a fan of way old school Green Day.  They were my first introduction into edgier "grunge" or "rock" instead of the bubblegum pop I always listened to.  I was in middle school when they came on the scene and I remember one of my friends had such a crush on Billie Jo - and before we knew who he was we were all like "Billy Joel?  He's so old!" and she'd be like "no Billie JO" and then we discovered who he was and what Green Day was all about and well, my musical world changed forever. Ha ha ha!  Can't say I love much of their newer stuff unfortunately, but give me the old stuff and I'll rock out!

 

Outfit rundown:
T-shirt - Aeropostale (old)
Sweater - Mossimo, Target
Skirt - Old Navy 
Necklace - two birds vintage
Shoes - SO, Kohls (thrifted)

  1. That is a cute skirt. I'm jealous of people who wear maxis so effortlessly! I have to remember to pack something green this weekend - I don't want to get pinched on vacation. :)

  2. Oh, the post reminds me of teaching and working at a school. Dressing up for holidays, fundraisers, potlucks, having to pay money to wear jeans :) Oh the memories!

    Love that long denim skirt!

  3. Cute skirt, I'm gearing up for st.patty's day. My family celebrates so I won't be in green until Saturday, but I'm pretty excited.

    Also I am such a bad ex-hot topic goth. I always thought green day was the bad that sung "Anthem" buuuut apparently it's Good Charlotte. *sigh* I remember those years being spent listening to the radio of all things. That was middle school for me. Not too long after all that I got into the Strokes, White Stripes, Guided by Voices and Modest Mouse. Bring on the Emo days!

  4. That song came out when I was in ninth grade. I actually still like their music, mostly because it reminds me of my teen years.
