An Irish Lass & Some Great Sweaters

St. Patrick's Day has always been a holiday close to my heart.  Maybe it's because there's nothing really expected of it - except that you drink a Guiness and decorate with clovers.   But what I've really come to appreciate about the holiday in recent years is getting know a little bit about Ireland.  Whether it be music, food, or style, here are my current Irish inspirations....

Róisín Murphy-  If you haven't heard of the Irish songstress, listen to the song, below, I promise you'll be instantly hooked.  She's one of those singers who isn't just amazing vocally, she's a true beauty with a style as unique as her music. I put some pictures up below from a shoot she did for Crash magazine.  Go ahead, become obsessed.







Cable Knit Sweaters -  I love the cozy look of traditional Aran sweaters from Ireland.  Last year Urban Outfitters had a great version of this look that I wish I would have picked up, but didn't.  So below are some sweaters I would love to wear while drinking some green beer. The chunky cable knit, and simple color palet give off a very Irish feel.
