I wanted to wait until June 6th, D-Day, to post these pictures. They were taken last Friday on Omaha Beach, one of the most important of the Normandy Landings of WWII. Visiting this, and all the other beaches, along this magnificent coastline conjures up so many emotions for me, if you pause for a minute you can imagine all the incredible events of 68 years ago. All the people that gave their lives, the scale and their sacrifice is inconceivable.
When I put this simple yet classic outfit together, I actually had the Queens Jubilee in mind. I wanted to give the British colours a French twist with a 'coco before chanel' style striped top. I'm really pleased that the British and French colours are the same though, I felt like I was able to represent both the Jubilee and D-Day at the same time!
