Green River 2017

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

The North Side of Chicago usually celebrates St. Paddy’s Day the Saturday after the holiday by dyeing the Chicago River bright green and holding a parade. However, this year we celebrated the weekend before!



For those of you who have never experienced Chicago on St. Patrick’s Day weekend, I thought I’d share some pictures from when my friends and I celebrated last weekend.

This was the first year that I was actually able to celebrate downtown with everyone during the day. Last year I was working, the year before I was in NYC for Teen Vogue Fashion U, and the year before I had a prior commitment. Some of my friends would celebrate during high school, but that was never really my thing.



I headed downtown with my friends Alex, Ola and Pat for the first half of the day and then I met up with more friends later on. It was an incredibly long day, but it was such a blast! I’m actually 25% Irish, so I had a a fantastic time embracing my freckles and celebrating being Ch-Irish (Chicago Irish).

Regardless of if you’re Irish or not, I hope you have a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day!
