Éire Go Brách (Erin Go Bragh)

1. Madison Marcus dress 2. Essie's Mint Candy Apple 3. Aurélie Bidermann leather bracelet 4. Anya Hindmarch tote
I found several different ways to spell Éire Go Brách, and I believe this is one of the right versions, but here in the U.S. we are used to seeing it as Erin Go Bragh or Braugh, and it's most often translated to mean Ireland Forever. I have a large Irish family so St. Patrick's Day is one of my favorite holidays! (My sister's name is Erin ... very Irish family.) However, as we all get older, get married, have kids, jobs, obligations, etc., it's harder and harder to get my 50+ person extended family together. I'll be celebrating tonight by eating corned beef and cabbage (okay, not the cabbage) at my mom's house then out with some friends. What are you doing?

I've seen 4,213 green round ups in my RSS feed this morning and yours was the prettiest so I had to come over and let you know!

Sounds like fun! I love that dress and have been a fan of mint candy apple for a long time now! We're just goign to grab a green beer downtown, but honestly, I wish I was back in Lawrence right now for the parade and green beers there!

So fresh and calming, a very unusual shade of green, you don't see enough of it in clothing.
