This post has been long overdue- an outfit post from the Jubilee weekend, how long ago was that now?!
I'm not especially patriotic but since getting a job where I get weekends and Bank Holidays off as standard (first time in my life!), I though it'd be rude not to join in with the festivities.
Me and Chris went into town to the street parties going on all around the Northern Quarter.
I managed to throw together a pretty royally-inspired outfit, surprisingly.
|Bowler hat: £3, Primark; Gold earrings: 50p, car boot sale; Gold 'K' necklace, Vintage, The Clothes Show Live; Parka, £15.99, army shop; Playsuit, £32, Blue Rinse; Bag, £8, vintage fair; 'Foxy' ring, gift, Wildfox; Boots, £60 (sale), Deena & Ozzy @ Urban Outfitters|
I think I must have just picked the most typically English items out of my wardrobe- black bowler hat, military parka (even though it's technically Italian!), patent satchel, Chelsea boots...
I tried my best to do red, white and blue without looking like Geri Halliwell having fallen into a basket of bunting and face paint.
I wore red lipstick (Mac Red, Mac) and nails, blue and white floral on my playsuit and my new white heeled Chelsea boots.
The street party was really fun, we bought some drinks from a corner shop so I didn't spend much money and got steadily rather tipsy throughout the day!

I also baked scones for the occasion!
Hope everyone had a lovely time too, if you can even remember- was that long ago now!
