luck of the Irish.

HAPPY MY FAVORITE COLOR (green) DAY EVERYONE!
Also known as Saint Patrick’s Day apparently…..
I really don’t need this holiday to celebrate my favorite color….some of you know that I celebrate this color everyday in almost a compulsive manner (hence the name mg).

Either way, in honor of this day I decided to put together a list of a few things (green of course) that I could only get my hands on through the “luck of the Irish”–meaning it might cost me a pot of gold to get my hands on these things. But it never hurts to chase the rainbow….or the leprechaun–whichever gets me to the gold!

i shop at the same store as my mom.

Have you ever: gone shopping as a little girl with your mom and followed her into what you thought were “lady” stores?
I know I definitely did when I was growing up….I felt like my mom had to drag me or bribe me to go into stores like Talbots or Ann Taylor (her favorite store to date) ALL the time. I would follow my mom around the store bored out of my mind and then trail after her into the dressing room and sit on the floor and tell her she looked pretty.
Now I have to admit–I still dread going into Talbots and some other stores; but lately–I have found myself rummaging through the sale racks at Ann Taylor and have come to find things that I thought were cute. **Gasp** My mom doesn’t have to bribe me anymore to accompany her to Ann Taylor–instead, we try on clothes together in the same dressing room. And the best part is, mom gets so excited that we shop at the same store, she offers to buy me what I end up liking.
So this last time I went with my mom to the mall, I picked up two cute sweaters; and recently had the opportunity to wear one to a casual dinner with some friends.  I have to say–the sweater=cute, the quality of the sweater=excellent, and the price=awesome.
And as a side note– my nude wedges finally came in so I threw together a really simple but classic outfit for this dinner.

spring tease.

In honor of this lovely weather, I thought I’d celebrate by purchasing some fun spring things.

As this warm weather has been approaching–I’ve been obsessing over neutral colors such as nude/bone.
I have come to find myself looking for the perfect pair of nude/bone colored shoes go with absolutely everything–yes everything.
On top of that i’m on this wedge rampage and I finally managed to find a pair that satisfied my criteria and also came in my size: a cute closed toe pair of nude wedges from lulus.com
Side note: apparently nude shoes make your legs look longer and skinnier (as short as I am, I could definitely use a boost in the height department).
