My Style | Working a patriotic vibe in red, white and blue

So it might be due to the fact it was Her Majesty The Queen’s 89th birthday this week, or the fact we’re about to have another royal baby. Either way, I seem to be rocking a patriotic vibe this week in red, white and blue.

CREDITS: ‘Yes’ sweatshirt, Zara | Blue culottes, Whistles (old season, but similar here and here) | Number 10 Bumper car flats, Ops & Ops | Lipstick, Ruby Woo at Mac

The whole look was inspired by my flat shoes, which are from a new range of patent leather slip-ons by design duo Ops & Ops.

In bright, bold and beautiful pillar-box red, the Sixties-influenced handcrafted shoes are made in a family-run factory in Portugal – plus the shoe boxes are so nice you’ll want to keep stuff in them forever. The ones I’m wearing are called ‘Number 10 Bumper Car red flats.’ Go up a size for ease of getting on, but ooooh, like slippers when you get them on, I tell you!

Blue and white stripes are a given (obvs), but I love the embellishment on this sweatshirt style from Zara. And I’ve worn it with my old season blue Whistles culottes, but I have added similar versions in the credits above.

    The hair is looking amazing! And I love the culottes – I’ve not had much success so far in my search for a pair.
