Six playful spring outfits inspired by St. Patrick's Day

Spring is finally here (until the next snowstorm hits Milwaukee) and we have just the right outfit ideas to help you make an impression this season. We've teamed up with Urban Laundry Boutique in Wauwatosa to come up with some great looks, from combinations in romantic floral and lace, to more casual pieces in suede and patent leather. Each outfit is beautifully complimented by unique jewelry items; many of which have been lovingly crafted by local artists here in Wisconsin.

In honor of St. Patrick's Day, we chose outfits in crisp whites and vibrant greens and oranges. We also chose pieces in soothing shades of blue, which according to many historians, was the original color associated with St. Patrick.

Look One

70s-inspired fashion is going to be huge this year, and suede fringe seems to pair remarkably well with delicate lace. This outfit will flawlessly take you from Coachella to Summerfest to your cousin's backyard birthday party.
