I'm continuing with my 'one statement piece' posts this week after showing how differently to style up the Missguided bomber jacket last week (find those posts here, here and here). So, the statement piece this week? The striped tee. It's iconic, timeless and just so easy to wear - hence why I picked it, I know how to make work easy for myself. IT can be nautical, francais, or - the way I've styled it this time - utterly British as I've teamed it with red, white and blue accessories.

This look is for a lovely Summer's day in England, pack up the hamper we're off on a picnic! We have to make the most of our short summer and I think this look is perfect to draw a few stares - hopefully all good. The skirt is from Primark and cost me only £5 - I know! - unfortunately it was from their Summer range and is now out of stock but I'm sure you can find an autumnal alternative somewhere. The shoes are also Primark while the gorgeous little blue bag (everyone needs a little blue bag) is from Next as part of their Autumn/ Winter collection, coming in so many different colours it was hard to choose. The striped tee itself, I had been looking for for agesssss - seriously months and then I just happened to go in to TKMaxx with my mum and there it was. It was a darn sight cheaper than a Breton stripe too, but I may still get one of those...

As for the lips, it's a little risquรฉ for me but I quite like the red, it's from Rimmel and is called 'In Love With A Ginger' - how do they think of these names?? I think red lips do take some getting used to, I'm feeling a little clown-like at the moment but hopefully don't look it?!?!

Hope you like, keep your eyes peeled for Look Number 2 coming Thursday.
