Wear Something Green And Have Fun!

I’ve been told that Kegs & Eggs is a St. Patrick’s Day tradition. If you’re opting for an early brunch or mid-afternoon lunch this lazy Saturday, a casual outfit is a must. Since warm weather is in the forecast for most of the country, opt for dining outside. Grab your sunnies and don’t forget your green pants – nothing ruins a casual brunch like getting pinched! (Or maybe you would enjoy it, wearing your cute green dress or scarf) and this may be a fun, easy way for a new TG woman to break the ice!

What to wear on St. Patricks Day?It may not be as glitzy as New Year’s Eve or as fabulous as your birthday, but St. Patrick’s Day is a holiday you probably celebrate with just as much gusto. This Saturday, the world will turn green in celebration of Saint Patrick, a patron saint of Ireland. While I’m not entirely sure what St. Patrick actually did, any excuse to dress in my favorite spring color is fine by me. My last name is Doyle, and my Father was Patrick and Mother Colleen. My Dad was so crazy about St. Patrick’s Day, he would put dark green dye on our light colored gray Yorkie, and he insisted I entered into my first beauty pageant at 17. Dad, insisted I put a Red wash out color on my hair, and we always had to wear green. So, this is a very special day for me. Oh yes, I won the Miss St. Patrick’s Day Pageant and one of the honors was to ride in the white convertible waving. Meanwhile, Dad stood on the sideline, with our green dog and green balloon tied around her collar. Dad wore a button, which said “Kiss Me I’m Irish”. So, when people ask me how I got into modeling and fashion, and how teaching my 20 years of experience, I just say,

“It’s a Long, Silly Story”.  Oh yes, when we came home, and my mother saw the green dog, it was Dad that was in the doghouse! 

Seriously, you don’t have to purchase an entire green outfit, but I listed a few inexpensive accessories below, to give you a touch—it opens up conversations. Learn some fun, Irish jokes, or something interesting about Ireland, or just tell my story!

Be creative and have fun! You can go to Marshall’s or Ross, Target and pick up a T-shirt with green, or a belt for under $10.00

And, don’t drink the Irish beer and dye your dog green!
