Trend: GB Frenzy!

With the Queens Diamond Jubilee fast approaching and the Olympics looming over the Summer, the shops have gone GB mad!

Cute patriotic teapots, commemorative shortbread tins and reams of bunting, the high street is buzzing with a patriotic theme.  Unfortunately these cute items also come hand in hand with an overkill of full-on flag print fashion! Even the Geri Halliwell Union Jack dress has been reborn - you can see her modelling the dress and her range at Next here: http://www.next.co.uk/g3778s3#833497g37 (This time with sequins - cringe!)

A union jack T can still look cute with denim hotpants and wedges - no denying that.  But heres some ideas for something a bit different:

House of Holland tights, Asos £15
Shopper bag, Accessorize £22
Cath Kidson necklace, Asos £16
Wooden bunting, Debenhams £15

Flag, Accessorize £3.50
Chunky ring, Accessorize £6
Nail tattoos, Superdrug £2
Cath Kidson illustrated bag, Asos £28

Brooch set, Debenhams £6
Crown T-shirt, Debenhams £20
Clutch with buttons, Next £28
Big Ben necklace, Accessorize £6
Eat scones, drink Pimms and be merry!
Enjoy the long Weekend!
