Red, White and Blue; Just for You

I've been on a bit of a mad wardrobe clear out/ sort out recently, discarding items I no longer wear to the eBay pile, hiding away Winter warmers and sorting through items that are getting a tad too tight for my bump. I saw these quirky polka dot trousers which I bought a few years ago and, I'm ashamed to admit have only ever worn once, so I thought they deserved one more outing before they were popped into the post-baby bump storage heap! I remember when I first wore them that they were quite a tricky item to find much to go with, (hard to believe if you could see my extensive wardrobe!) and I teamed them with a black tie shirt and leather jacket as it was more around Autumn time. This time I wanted to brighten them up and inject a bit of fun into my look, so was inspired to go with a bit of an all American colour theme of classic red, white and blue, but wanted to keep it quite quirky and eclectic with a touch of lace and the chintzy patterned shirt collar.



What I'm Wearing: Red polka dot cigarette trousers: Kelly Brook range at New Look, cream lace knit: Primark, patterned shirt: Thrifted, clutch: Arcadia sample sale, heels: Peacocks, rings: all Vintage, necklace: Next
