SupershamrockshirtDon’t forget that March 17 is St. Patrick’s Day and your little one should make sure to wear some green to avoid getting pinched — though we can’t promise his/her little cheeks won’t get pinched anyway. There is rarely a shortage of green clothing, but we wanted to help you find the perfect green accessory for your little leprechaun this St. Patty’s Day. And let us mention that you don’t need to be Irish to celebrate this fun holiday. While the holiday is held to honor St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, the spirit is all about learning a little something about Irish culture and/or wearing something green on March 17.

Click continue reading to see our picks for St. Patrick’s Day style.

The easiest way to infuse a little Irish pride into your wardrobe is with a t-shirt or onesie. Paired with jeans or a basic skirt you’ve got an easy look that works! This is also, usually, the most cost effective measure, as it should include only the purchase of a tee.

I would love to see some more boys clothes. I want to find something ultra cute for my 3 yr old this year. Something not every other child is wearing. His daddy is VERY irish and VERY proud! Can CBB help a “want to surprise your daddy” mommy out!?!? Thanks
