Since my name is Erin Flynn, and it sounds like I literally stepped foot off the boat. I feel like it is my Irish patron duty to give an ode to St. Patrick’s Day. Then again if it must be known I have actually no relation to Ireland once so ever other than the translation of my first name.
However, my husband’s family is very Irish, which explains the whole Flynn part, but my maiden name happens to be Nigh. And that is apparently kind of hard to track down on the family tree. Rather than being a mutt with blended heritage from all over Europe. I prefer to just act like I’m hardcore Irish.
So while I’m not technically from Ireland I’m pretty sure there is some right of passage to celebrate when your name is in the holiday “Erin Go Bragh”. To be honest how can you not celebrate St. Patrick’s Day?!
When else do people get by with drinking a bunch of beer just because the Irish do it, meet normal folks dressed up as leprechauns, and find a pot of gold even if it is chocolate wrapped in gold paper. There is really no reason for a 20 something not to celebrate!
In order to do St. Patrick’s Day justice Reality Chic style I figured there was no better way than to Go Green. These eco-friendly looks will not only keep you green during St. Patrick’s Day but for years to come! I’ve been wanting to write about stylish eco-friendly clothing brands for quite sometime now, but have yet to have the courage seeming how I am very much a newbie. I plan on continuing to write about ways to implement these fashionable clothes into your wardrobe in future articles. However, here is a start!
Why Should 20 Somethings Think to Go Green?
If you’ve seen Food Inc., watched Oprah, or read Michael Pollan’s books you probably have an invested interest in what types of food you’re eating and where it all comes from. Like food, fashion can have an affect on the environment, you, employees around the world, and much more… It’s an obvious thought to watch what you put in your body, but have you ever thought about what you put on it?
Take a look at Jenni Avins and her site www.closettour.com for more information on how to and why it’s important to know where your clothes are coming from.
