Wardrobe Wednesday: God Save the Queen

If you know me, then you know my love for the wonderful nation of Great Britain (and especially the Royal Family) has no bounds. While my lack of a TV while in NYC kept me from watching a ton of the Olympics, I still caught up on NBC.com and of course, with all the photos of Will and Kate (the one of the hug made me indescribably happy).

 A family friend who knows my love of all things English was kind enough to pick up a Team GB shirt for me while they were over in London for the games! Call me anti-American, as I have no Team USA gear (although I was loving those Ralph Lauren Team USA polos), but there's a slight chance that Kate may own this shirt - and sharing a garment with her is of course too good an opportunity to pass up!

While athletic gear is usually not my first choice of garment, I love the unique look of this tee (it's designed by Stella McCartney for Team GB!), with the gold lion logo. Paired with a black sequin skirt and my trusty chambray, I tried to turn the shirt into something more than just game spectator wear!



The official Team GB logo and Olympic Rings

Of course, a Union Jack to seal the deal!
