Lookbook: St. Paddy's Fire

First, thank you spring for finally showing your face in these parts. I couldn't be happier, as you can clearly see by my St. Paddy's Day inspired outfit. Yes, I wore this over the weekend, saw The Incredible Burt Wonderstone and yada, yada, yada. But let me rant right quick:Brick and mortar stores need to step up their customer service game. I went to a store that I know many of us shop at (but shall not be named) and had a really bad experience with the fitting room attendant; advertised products were nowhere to be found; and the entire store was disheveled. I was in there for 45 minutes and found absolutely nothing to buy. Then I stopped by a Marshalls, of all places, and found some really cute stuff (like these shorts), along with super attentive and nice employees. It was a complete 180. So thank you, Marshalls, for keeping brick and mortar customer service alive.

This is the best I could do in the time I had this weekend.

Day 25 ~ A Song That Makes You Laugh: My Humps by Alanis Morissette ~ I know it's old, but I heard this cover for the first thanks to Jenny Benny, and I think it's totally hilarious. It's amazing how turning a fast song into a slow song can make it sound so stupid and funny at the same time.

Day 26 ~ A Song That You Can Play on an Instrument: Greensleeves ~ This is the first song I learned how to play and pretty much one of the only songs I know how to play on the piano. It's impressive the first time I play it, but after that it's just annoying, lol.

Swooning over this vibrant spring ensemble, the printed top is so pretty! I have to check out the Alanis song now, hadn't heard it before. Wishing you a fashionably fun and productive week ahead!

Love the shorts and the colours combined...gorgeous! I wish it was ok enough to wear shorts, but I'd freeze like an ice lolly! But, soon, I know Spring is on it's way!! Have a great week xx

Cheryl, those shorts are so cute!!! And you know I love that top! That's what made me stop shopping at stores. It can be so frustrating and no one is doing their job! Glad Marshall's was good! The one we have here is the same. Beautiful look Cheryl! Have a great week!

Emmy said...

That Prabal Gurung for Target top is amazeballs, Cheryl! You look fab and oh-so-perfect for St.Paddy's:)
And sorry to hear about the store experience. Lousy service has happened to me several times, and it's really the pits:(

Courtney said...

I walked down the aisle at my wedding to Greensleeves being played on a lute and virginals...I love that tune. Sorry, that was an aside. Sorry about your poor retail experience, I always fine it super frustrating when that happens.

I love those shorts on you!
Ugh I hate bad service. It is interesting because some stores in Asia can leave you alone while others smother you with service. I really need to stop at Marshall's.

Oh breaking out the shorts already eh? Love the polka dots, and I only recently stumbled upon Marshalls a year or so ago, they have some great finds and inexpensive too! Have a great beginning week. :-)

You have the prettiest legs. I yearn for shorts and spring!

Mouthwash said...

I am hiking up crazy mountains just so I can look as cute and confident as you do in shorts!!

I love the colors in this outfit. Everything just screams spring!

And yes, brick and mortar stores (esp ones like Zara and H&M) really do need to step up their customer service.

Jenmarie said...

I'm obsessed with minty green colors right now. How cute those polka dots are! I also love those zara heels, the nude back makes them interesting to look at!

We have the same cam brand but I changed my cam lens to 15-135 instead as I have no time to mess around switching lenses...guess that's how it works!

Cheryl ...You look so pretty and California chic! I love the entire look of this (nice Marshalls find!) and this looks like a resort wear look in a magazine for warm weather! PS - the white rooftop turned out perfect. Almost looks like you're in Florida. :)
