I have been hunting high and low for the perfect Breton t-shirt recently and I am happy to report I have just found it. It's amazing how something so simple and classic can be so overlooked by the high street - Uniqlo used to sell the perfect long-sleeve striped tees but much to my dismay they appear to have discontinued them. So when online lifestyle store Surfdome recently offered me a piece to review from the site, I picked out the Joules Harbour t-shirt  in the hope it would fill the gap in my t-shirt collection. Having tried and tested the t-shirt I am now planning to buy multiples in different colours - it fulfills all the criteria I am looking for in a Breton - thick cotton, well-cut but not too fitted, boat neck and long sleeved. Check out more styles from Surfdome here.  Whilst stripe tees look great with Converse and jeans for the weekend, an unexpected and interesting way to style them is with sequins. Here's how I plan to wear mine over the festive season:

1. Joules Harbour t-shirt, Surfdome, £29.95.
2. Silver sequin skirt, Topshop, £95.
3. Lips in Screen siren, Topshop, £8.
4. Charlotte Olympia glitter kitty flats,, £495. 
5. Marc by Marc Jacobs Henry watch, Bloomingdales, £120.


  1. Lovely styling. I agree, the perfect Breton can be very elusive! Need those Charlotte Olympia flats in my life too...

  2. What a great find and I ADORE how you styled it with a sequin skirt!

  3. Gorgeous skirt!! I like the idea of styling it with a striped top :)

    Take care,

  4. So cute flats!

  5. It always seems to be the most simple items that are the hardest to find! Love this top :)


  6. I love how versatile a striped top is! I'd never have thought of putting it with sequins though - maybe an idea for future occasions! x
