How to Show Off Your St. Patrick's Day Style!

Feb 28, 2011

How can you celebrate St. Patrick's Day in style without looking like a leprechaun? Kidzworld has the goods to help you go green!

From green clothing to shamrock-inspired accessories, celebrate St. Patrick's Day in style!

Be Irish for a Day

Whether your style is Hot Topic or Abercrombie & Fitch, almost all of your favorite stores are selling cool St. Paddy's Day T-shirts in the $20 range. But for the best deal in town, head to Old Navy - for only $3.50 US, you can get your hands on colorful tees for both guys and girls! They're so cheap you could buy a bunch for everyone in your family and still have some of your hard-earned cash left over. These comfy shirts feature various graphics, from four-leaf clovers to horseshoes, but they're all guaranteed to make you look stylish and feel lucky.

Get in the Shamrock Spirit

If you're not too crazy about getting decked out in green gear, throw on some holiday-inspired accessories to jazz up your outfit. Throw a horseshoe or shamrock necklace around your neck, and put some St. Patrick's Day pride in your stride with Converse splashed in shamrocks or a pair of classic Nike Dunk basketball shoes. You can also have some fun by wearing bright green nail polish or temporary hair dye!

Go Green!

Don't just wear green... go green! Most stores you shop at are committed to being environmentally friendly and carry clothes made of natural materials like organic cotton and hemp. They're uber-soft and comfortable, so we guarantee you'll be wearing 'em every day and not just on St. Patrick's Day! The Gap sells 100% organic cotton shirts, Urban Outfitters has a selection of jeans, and the mary-kate and ashley brand offers organic cotton basics that you can find at your local Wal-Mart. Even some of your fave Converse sneakers have gone green and are made of hemp! And for a limited time, FredFlare.com is selling Go Green tote bags made of natural canvas and printed on water-based inks. Purchase one today and a portion of the sales will go towards the World Wildlife Fund!

EndlessDream is right. Skipping breakfast and lunch can result in stomach ulcers and sudden weight gain (had personal experience...), ESPECIALLY skipping breakfast! You have to incorporate exercise in your daily routine. Stomach and body fat is mostly caused by lack of exercise, and maybe that means you need to do toning exercises. Try doing simple exercise videos like the 3-mile powerwalk on YouTube (trust me, I sweat like crazy when I do those workouts). Anything that gets you sweating, is the kind of exercise you need to do.  I hated working out when I first started my weight loss journey too. I would always start wheezing every time I started working out. But after pushing through everyday, I think working out is one of the best stress busters I've ever had!  If you want to lower your appetite though, I suggest eating a full lunch and breakfast and skipping your dinner. If you can't skip dinner, then at least try aiming for an early dinner, around 5:30 or 6:00. Your body needs time to digest at least 4 hours before you sleep. I started gaining weight around puberty when I was 12, it could be the same for you too.  But honestly, there's nothing wrong with having consciousness about your weight. Now starving yourself and dieting is BAD, but there's nothing wrong with changing your lifestyle in order to be fit. It's a good thing that kids start caring about their health, and the earlier you start, the better off you are.

You need breakfast and lunch. Starving yourself, even if you aren't hungry, makes you loose energy to the point you could pass out from not eating. Keep your diet healthy. For breakfast, at least have yogurt, fruit, and juice. Drink at least 4 full glasses of water a day. Trim down on the snacks. Everyone has different bodies and build. You may just be large-boned. And that's not bad! That makes you stronger and higher ability to gain muscle. Loosing weight doesn't happen over night. It can take months.

For years my parents would tell me I'm skinny but compared to other people, my waist was bigger and I would always hide it. Though it was obvious I weighed more, I've only been doing this for a week and I didn't ever tell anyone what I was doing until my parents found out. I would skip lunch and breakfast and say I was full. I only ate a big dinner every night. Once my parents found out, they said it was unhealthy and if I didn't  stop, I would develop an eating disorder. I obviously listened to them, but I've tried as best as I can so far. I have barely lost any weight from exercise and my parents won't let me go on a diet because I already 'eat healthy enough'. I want to lose weight without exercising being 3/4s of my lifestyle. I know, I'm a lazy idiot for saying all this.

Yes, purely for the fact that you should not "hate" your sister (or anyone, for that matter).  I'm guessing by "get in trouble for her", you mean she does something wrong and the blame is all put on you? Yeah, little siblings tend to do that a lot. My brother did for the longest time, until my parents found out how much a liar he is. She, hopefully, will grow out of this eventually. Either that, or your parent[s]/guardian[s] will eventually see through her. You lose your friends to her? By this do you mean your friends want to hang out with her and they want you to tag along and you don't? Or do you mean your friends chose your sister over you? If it's the latter, then perhaps you shouldn't have ever referred to those people as friends. You'll find friends who'll prefer you over your sister, I'm sure of it. The only thing I can tell you to do is try to get along with your sister. Every group of siblings has their cats and dogs moment in life, but they grow out of it (most of the time; there are, of course, circumstances where it doesn't work out that way). Please be grateful for your sister, even if you two fight a lot. You never know how much you need something until it's gone.
