Today is my first St. Patrick’s Day in Boston, a town known rather for their Irish revelry. I was excited to go see the parade with all my peoples but several events intervened to make that rather impossible. The first is that I had to work throughout the afternoon. The second is that I saw three people vomit in public at eleven in the morning and several people urinate a few hours later. As much as I love some good revelry, I just didn’t feel up to catching up to that level. Or ever catching up to that level actually. Not to mention that boycotting the parade became rather popular this year, with even the mayor joining in after this happened. So today, instead, I am going to go to my favorite little restaurant in the area, Moogy’s, and grab some one dollar pancakes after eight p.m. But to tide me over on St. Patrick’s Day cheer, I thought I would post some dreamy pictures of what I want my St. Patrick’s Day to look like someday soon. And by look, I am specifically referring to pretty dresses.

When looking at the new Spring collections by fashion houses large and small, I found one thing they all had in common: color. It’s nothing new, pastel and flowers has long been expected to show up in people’s wardrobes come Spring. But there is still something sweet and refreshing now that we all have gone through so many months of dark jackets and boots.

So here are some of the most fashionable (and expensive) green frocks for you to dream of this St. Patrick’s Day, mixed in with some much more accessibly priced items for your buying pleasure ­čÖé

These ┬álovelies are all different shades, but all would work to celebrate the Emerald Isle. Louis Vuitton and Dolce might not be quite within your price range, though if they are, then color me green with jealousy. But if you want to check out the Anthro dress, don’t forget to look a the rest of the lovely collection. Or if Modcloth is more your speed, be sure to look at all the emerald dresses they have to offer.
