There's only one brand and one thing to wear on Bastille Day: Petit Bateau breton stripes! The French brand has been making the iconic navy blue and white - or white and blue - stripe marinière for decades. Made from 100% cotton, they wash well, go with everything and are a wardrobe essential for every woman. I have four and I'm sure my collection will continue to grow.
Today I'm wearing this white and navy version, but this is what I wore last week during the dreaded tube strike with shorts and trainers, like the rest of London. That was the only good thing about it - seeing hundreds of people cycling, running and walking their commute. Let's start a two-legged, two-wheeled revolution! (How very French.)
