We're So Blue

St. Patrick's Day is coming up and instead of pulling your best kelly green cardigan out of the closet, perhaps you should look for one in St. Patrick's blue. That's right, the true color of St. Patrick's Day is a sky blue, the color associated with the Order of St. Patrick. St. Patrick encouraged Christian Irishmen to wear the shamrock as a representation of the holy trinity and used the plant to teach his faith. When the tradition of  'wearing the green' came to America, it was taken literally.

This year, we've prepared both a blue and green inspiration board in honor of St. Patrick's Day. If anyone pinches you for wearing blue instead of green, pinch them right back and give them a little history lesson for their trouble.
