outfit: red, black & blue

Shirt - gift from the lovely Katie, sweater - Jay Jays, belt - Supre, skirt - Friends of Couture, shoes - Golden Ponies

I have had this shirt for what seems like years (actually, it really has been years, oh my!) but only worn it a handful of times. Most probably because the recent Lana-Del-Rey-esque trend for American flag prints, denim cut-offs and flower headbands sort of turned me off a little.

But I LOVE this shirt... for some reason I never thought of putting it underneath something instead of just wearing it by itself.. derrrrrrr.

Also, I've always found it so funny how, in Australia, anyone who wears an article of clothing with the Aussie flag on it is automatically branded as a bogan.. but the wearing of the Union Jack or Stars & Stripes is completely fine and even fashionable!

I wonder if it is like that in other countries too?


  1. I had to look up the word bogan, but I def. think there's a similar idea with wearing flags in the US. People either think that, or that it's old fashioned

    1. Oh haha oops, forgot that bogan isn't a universal word. It does, however, seem to be a universal "trend" (for lack of a better word).
      I have seen quite a few fashionable US based bloggers reppin' their flag though.. Maybe there is a touch more patriotism there than here (patriotism here seems to mean getting wasted at your mates BBQ and getting a southern cross tatt on your lower back. Shudder).

  2. Yup, it's the same here. I don't get the whole flag trend to be honest :D
    But I do love how you styled that shirt with the gorgeous sweater ^_^

    1. It's very weird. Also the Australian flag is a bit boring haha.
      Oh you!! <3
