No drab colours for the PM on this special occasion - she emerged for the cameras this morning in a bright orange jacket. We've seen the jacket before - it's not a colour you forget.
The jewellery, however, is new - a present from Tim - and, as such, got a mention in every article about the birthday.
The necklace and earrings coordinated rather nicely with Julia's hair, but not with the jacket.
The Prime Minister will soon have another birthday accessory to show off - a cavoodle puppy (another present from Tim). But we'll have to wait a couple of weeks to see it as it's still too young to leave its Mum (hopefully it won't match the jacket either).
