Happy jubilee!

I shan't pretend I've done anything vaguely patriotic (other than eat the delicious cupcake made by The Cake Shop in the last photo that I picked up from Aubin & Wills when browsing), but it's been nice to see so many flying the flag. I did indulge in this Cath Kidston pocket mirror, but otherwise I've been spending my money on making the most of what little time I have left in Liverpool before I return home for Summer. I did give the union flag a little reference in my outfit though. The white is in the form of a blouse I picked up in the Miss Selfridge sale, but, despite loving it, I normally reserve for going out as it's exceptionally sheer. The blue is the navy version of the American Apparel pocket skirt that everyone has (I have it in grey and a pale blue too). And the red is with some ribbon I picked up at the market, secured with a pin, which I covered with a sixpence my mum picked up at my village's summer fair last year. And then the wind decided it didn't like my beehive, but we'll ignore the rather windswept nature of these photos...

After much deliberation, I decided to create a facebook page for this blog. I've always put it off as I like to avoid the "so you take photos of yourself and put them on the internet?" question from my friends, but recently I've started to feel slightly more confident with the content I've been publishing. I would really love it if you could 'like' the page here, and a massive thank you to everyone who has so far!

I'm off to my flatmates from last year's house for movies with something a little patriotic (okay, I couldn't resist) and edible in my bag this evening. Hope you're enjoying the four day weekend, and keeping up with You Know You're British When.

  5. Love this outfit, the ribbon idea is so cool! I didn't do very much for the Jubilee either (other than eating cake - in the name of the Queen of course!), I didn't even really wear a patriotic outfit!

  31. You look lovely, I love your little ribbon bow and the sixpence! And your beehive is gorgeous!
    I've been deliberating about whether to create a Facebook page for my blog for ages! I know exactly what you mean as I've had the 'You take photos of yourself and put them on the internet?' question more times than I care to remember! X

  32. You look lovely, the ribbon and sixpence are pretty cool accessories! I did nothing remotely patriotic, tut tut apart from drinking which is of course a national sport in this country. x x

  34. love the jubilee inspired patriotic look!

  35. You look fabulous here, I love the outfit, especially the ribbon bow tie. It reminds me of part of my old school uniform actually, but I could neevr pull it off.

    I get what you mean about blogging and "real life" people, I'm definitely not that comfortable with it right now.

  36. Happy Jubilee! (with a few days late). I do love HM Queen Elizabeth a lot. I kind of envy you for having a monarchy because nothing is everlasting here when it comes to the "first family". I mean, there was the huge popularity of the Kennedys and the Obamas, but they don't last long. Your outfit is lovely, quite the young lady ;)
    Having a facebook page on your blog is a great idea. I personally like to see my favourite blogs on my home page. It's much easier than having to log into my blog's gmail account to be able to use Google Reader. Although it can get a little overwhelming, having to be sure to update everything when you post. I am liking your page by all means :)
    Love,
