We are pretty excited about the Olympic Games this summer. In a few short days all eyes of the world will be on the city of London, once again. This time, though, it is for a very different celebration. Instead of focusing on the accomplishments of the royal family we celebrate athletic royalty. From swimming to fencing, we are dizzy with anticipation to watch some of the worlds greatest figures in sports aim for a place on the podium and claim the title of "Olympic Champion".
We (the FWU team and most Americans in general) have a slight obsession with the United Kingdom. We love the iconic Burberry trench coat, as well as the brand itself. We cannot get enough of the Royal Family. The Queen has a higher approval rating with American citizens than our own President. Talented British Musicians and Artists, the list is long and includes: Adele, Coldplay, Elton John and our guilty pleasure One Direction, we love all these fab artists. We thank the Brits for amazing actors such as Kate Winslet, Jude Law, Daniel Craig, Helen Mirren, Colin Firth, Keira Knightly and Christian Bale (he's Welsh but that counts right?). James Bond, Austin Powers - yes please!
Today we stumbled upon this ultra cool t-shirt by Bershka that seemed to sum up our feelings perfectly-- "Love Me Or Leave Me At London." This soft, flag print tee comes in two colors, navy and white and is only £9.99. Unfortunately, we cannot buy this shirt off the site in the US, but we all have friends in other countries, maybe we can persuade them to buy it for us. To the rest of our readers hopefully your country is listed here to purchase. Instead this distressed tee with the Union Jack flag on it listed on Amazon.com will curb our British fix unitl we can track down the Bershka tee.
Cheerio and we'll see you in London Baby!
