you call it desperation. i call it dedication and the biggest craving ever.

white tee, green sheer skirt: forever 21 / natalia flats: c/o Blowfish Shoes

i don't think i've celebrated St. Patty's day in a long time. not that i'm Irish. it's just that green is my all time favorite color in the world and you'd think i would be all over the green-obsessed holiday. this year, i celebrated it with Ryan and we both rocked out in green - me in my favorite green skirt and Ryan, his hunter green tee. 

he also planned out an afternoon for us to hang out at Mall of Georgia to do some window shopping. (we like to pretend that we already have a home together and pretend to shop for all the things we want to fill it with. William and Sonoma and Pottery Barn are two favorites.) for dinner, we made a Chipotle run (duh) and then went on a mad hunt for Mickey D's shamrock shakes. sadly, every MD we went to were sold out. seriously?! it's St. Patrick's Day! you guys need to double-up on your shamrock shake mixtures! so to make up for it, Ryan took me to Starbucks for a green tea frappe. it was good but def did not meet the minty-goodness craving. 


we wrapped up the evening with a casual walk at a nearby park. mostly people-watched and then set my camera on timer. after what felt like a million tires, we finally got my timer to work and get a somewhat decent photo. if you look close enough with this photo, i'm in mid-laughter. or maybe it's just my awkward crooked smile making it's appearance.

much love.
{happy tuesday, friend.}
