Red, White and Blue

REDANDSTUDSLinking to Patti’s Not Dead Yet Style for Visible Monday

I never thought I’d wear this many studs at once – I really love it!

Chilly Spring days mean I get to wear this cotton stripe jumper by Mango. I haven’t worn anything similar since the 80’s, after which time I swore off any garment vaguely batwing! But my youngest coined a new name for the slightly baggy armhole, she said it looked like a ‘butterfly’ – much better than ‘batwing’! I really like the stripes with the (Hermès) red Christine bag also here, studded cuff (Barbara Bui) and loafers (Opening Ceremony). REDWHITEBLUE2I forgot my watch *sigh* one day I’ll get it right all at the same time 🙂 I threw on my khaki parka which looked really nice with the red and discovered that I can carry the bag underarm ‘over-sized clutch style’. The leather is soft enough.

    You look classic chic and the red purse is a great accessory that adds that little extra fun!

      Thanks so much for taking the time to visit and your kind comment! It’s a khaki parka and something else I discovered I loved over a year ago when I thought it wouldn’t be for me 🙂

    Looking adorable here … all classic spring pieces with color pops for fun. The studs keep it new and modern looking. You little hipster, you!

    I have a thing for striped tops and this sweater would definitely come home with me if I saw it out in a shop! Your red handbag is gorgeous and your entire look is classic with a little bit of trendy fun thrown in!
