OOTD :: of St. Paddy’s, TARDIS Tuesday, and reconciling the two




So TARDIS Tuesday and “British, blue or Doctor Who” doesn’t quite cut it on St. Patrick’s Day.

After all, it’s more Irish, green or … well, has there ever been an Irish actor playing the Doctor? (Kezzie, wanna chime in?)

But yeah, you can see my dilemma here. My OCD-ness in wanting to connect all the dots pretty much commanded me to do something that would suit both my linkup and the holiday du jour.

Enter 9, stage right. The Ninth Doctor aka Christopher Eccleston was best known sporting utilitarian olive green and black but I’d already cosplayed him once before and we all know how I hate being derivative. That said, I only own this one olive green top so it had to be the base for today’s ensemble.

(I suppose I could’ve gone opposites and utilized olive green bottoms, which I have a few of. Hindsight is always twenty-twenty, eh?)

Black leather was a definite requirement, but I thought to sleek the look with this cropped scuba jacket rather than my usual moto. And in order to show off the socks, it had to be another Boohoo skater skirt, natch, this one in black, also natch.

And speaking of my socks – yep, they’re green. And shamrock-y. And argyle. So although argyle is Scottish, I think the other two cover me for St. Paddy’s. And their addition lends a bit of whimsy to an otherwise stark and Spartan ensemble.

I think I’m allowed to call this TARDIS Tuesday/St. Patrick’s Day mash-up a thorough success.

What about you, my friend? Got anything o’ the Irish on you that you wish to share? Do tell…
