Flags on Friday
On 28th July 1707 the Union Flag was, by royal proclamation, made the National flag of Great Britain.
A nice and easy one for today.
Seeing as I have plenty of red white and blue in my wardrobe I thought trying to incorporate the flag into my outfit was the way to go.
I had a couple of different options but in the end it was the wet and windy weather which chose for me.
My dress (shown middle photo) isn't made up of the flag's bold colours but is within the red and blue spectrums.
I have heard it said the flag should only be referred to as a Union Jack when used at sea so I wore my ship and anchor brooch on the pocket of my dress. The badge was pinned onto the strap of my handbag.
The last accessory was a scarf which I bought from Primark a few years ago.
I was thankful for it as I walked over the bridge on my way to work this morning, it really felt like summer had disappeared and I certainly needed it to help keep out that cold wind.
