If you're celebrating St. Patrick's Day this weekend, you'll want to go all out in ridiculous St. Patrick's attire; those crazy hats, catchy t-shirts, bright green socks, etc. But that type of attire won't float the boat for work come Monday morning. So to avoid those pinches for not wearing green, here are a few ways to incorporate the St. Patrick's Day spirit into your work style!
1. Bright Green Tailored Pants:
If you want to go bold with green, opt for some birght green pants! However stick to a tailored cut to keep them classy enough for work (bright green skinnies most likely won't make the dress code cut). You can also try a bright green blazer!
Here comes the lazy days of summer… those born in the month of August are blessed with fame, dignity and protection when wearing their birthstone, Peridot. Peridot is a gem-quality transparent variety of olivine. Its color ranges from lime green to olive, natch. The color calls to mind grassy fields, juicy limes, and all of nature in the height of summer. Peridot is among the oldest known gemstones. This translucent gem derives its name from Greek word, ‘faridat’ which means gem. Well, there you go—that’s how old it is. Apparently, at one time, it was the gem! In fact, the “topaz” on the breastplate of Aaron, High Priest of the Hebrews in the Old Testament, was believed to actually be Peridot. Ancient Egyptians, around 1580 B.C. to 1350 B.C., created beads from Peridot. In Hawaii, Peridot is treasured as goddess Pele’s tears.
For Greeks and Romans, Peridot was in popular use as intaglios, rings, inlays, and pendants. The faint glimmer in this stone is usually under moonlight or a lantern. This is why Peridots were dug up in the night, which also earned it the name Evening Emerald in ancient Egypt. Peridot has been revered by both priests and pirates alike for its property to ward off evil. This gem has more in store for every wearer than just those born in August. It is known for its healing powers and its ability to bring good luck, helps the wearer to see past hurt, understand relationships in a better light and many times, heal the wounded ego. As this lustrous green rock allows one to go beyond judgments and reach the bigger picture of life, it also gets a connotation of a visionary gemstone. Its association with love is that it adds intelligence to romantic liaisons, which steers it away from confusions and misunderstandings. The Peridot was regarded since ancient times as the symbol of the sun.
This unique green stone is often found in lava and meteorites, so they are associated with an unpredictable nature and a hot temper. August birthstone jewelry gifts of Peridot are supposed to help cool the temperament of those born in the year’s hottest month, but they have the added benefit of being absolutely beautiful. The jeweler’s birthstone poem of 1870: “Wear a Peridot or for thee/No conjugal fidelity/The August born without this stone/`Tis said, must live unloved; alone.” I doubt that seriously, but hey, it can’t hurt either because Peridot is a very affordable gem! It’s fresh and delightful, easy to wear and easy on the eyes, so put one on and see what it feels like to wear the sun!
Fun Factoids: During the Middle Ages, Peridot was pierced, then strung on the hair of an ass and attached to the left arm to ward off evil spirits. Hmmm, Okaaay…....
