Clinging on to the last of my jubilee spirit for this post. I don't think I've ever been so disappointed in the British weather but still managed to have a fun jubilee weekend (thanks for the extra bank holiday, Queenie!). My favourite memory will definitely be the one of me standing under a tree while wrapped in a tartan blanket to shelter from the rain at a street party. The toast to "The Queen" and subsequent singing of the national anthem made it well worth it.

My only non-red/white/blue outfit of the weekend - Royal Mint:



Dress: Apricot @ Browns (bought on my trip to York), Necklace: Primark, Earrings: Claire's, Socks: Claire's, Brogues: Office


1. BT getting into the Jubilee spirit.

2. Rainy early morning run across Westminster Bridge.

3 - 4. Jubilee accessories.

5. Parent's house looking patriotic.

6 - 7. Trifle-making. Lots of sherry in this.

8. More sugar.

9 - 11. Street party cake competition. I didn't make any of these but whoever made the one I had a slice of, it was amazing!

12. Street party time. So British. So rainy.

How did you celebrate Her Maj's sixty years on the throne?
