London is still filled with bunting and more Union Jacks than I’ve ever seen in my life…..it seems all the decor put up for the Jubilee was a bargain really, as it’s been left up for the games too. Double whammy! And because red and blue are my current favourites, I’m still very much into all things Union Jack….. I posted a while ago about lots of Union Jack *things*, but here are my picks of Union Jack wearables…..
I wouldn’t be without my French Sole flats….they are pretty and stylish, but so easy to wear and super comfy. These Union Jack patterned ballet pumps though would make an excellent addition to the collection. They are leather and come in the Henrietta shape which has a nice low vamp (showing just a little toe cleavage). The flag also appears at the heel, so you’ll be patriotic from every angle. They are £130 though, so it’ll be worth waiting to see if they come up in the sale!
Similarly pie in the sky at £249.95 is this Barbour jacket….. I first saw it at the british pop up shop in Selfridges, and I’ve wanted it ever since. Barbour have teamed up with Swarovski Elements to bring a little patriotic sparkle to an iconic jacket. As well as the Union Jack lining, the chest pocket is emblazoned with a red, white and blue crystal flag. Considering all the rain we’ve been having this summer, I guess you could call it a sound investment though!
I also spied these amazing Union Jack gloves by Dents at the Selfridges pop-up, and was smitten right away. Stitched together in red, white and blue leather panels, the gloves are super supple and also boast a silk lining. They come gift boxed too, so a they make a wonderful gift to oneself as a treat for surviving the summer! They are £99.00.
I’m a sucker for a silk scarf as you may well already know, and this one is so very me. It has a wonderful vintage feel with the retro portrait of Her Majesty, and I love the swirling crest pattern over the flag itself. It’s £120.00 from Liberty, although thankfully for the sake of my wallet, it’s out of stock just now.
