Do you remember when Daniella Westbrook dressed head to toe in Burberry and was seen out with her baby in matching Burberry pram/baby bag etc? I am quite tempted to do the same with Jubilee memorabilia – and we have got a street party coming up so perhaps it would be rude not to…
I have seen a great Union Jack Ra-Ra skirt in BHS, a vest with Freddie Mercury on the front in Primark, Union Jack tights in M&S – I reckon that I could pull together a cracking and impressively un-stylish look on what is out there at the moment.
As you can see, today the sun was out. Not being one to cast everything off at the first sign of the rays, I was slightly conservative about revealing too much and also at 8am it was slightly cooler than at 3pm. So, I stuck to navy trousers but put them with this White Stuff top (which try as I might, despite several searches I can’t find on-line despite the fact that it is current stock – but it is called the Shelley Top.) I really liked the neckline – it’s all quite 1950’s ish and I thought that the cap sleeves were cute too.
I also wore for the first time these Carvela (KupKake) wedges in a neutral snake print, which I picked up for half price in John Lewis at Easter. They are currently £85 but I think that’s a bit steep personally. I bought them with a view to them giving a new lease of life to a couple of black dresses which are almost on their way out but being neutral, they will go with lots of things.
I also worked in my Orla Kiely bag and the new bracelet which I bought from Reiss at the weekend. I think that we might be forgiven for thinking that this shot was designed to promote the bag on the Reiss website, instead of the bracelet!
Hope that the warm weather lasts – it’s nice to ring the changes with the clothes a little and I am quite excited at the prospect of wearing a summer dress or two. Is there anything that you are looking forward to wearing, either again or for the first time?
