Confession: I am not a fan of the color green. I mean, sure, there are shades of green that I love, but in general.. no.

However, I am willing, ready, and able to rock the green on St. Patrick’s Day! In fact, I look forward to it and even get a little excited!

So, I just had to make a fun festive accessory! And leggings are perfect for that time of year, especially where it’s still wintertime here in Maine.
