Linen Shirt and Straw Bag
Does this outfit show how heavily inspired I am by my eternal style muse Jane Birkin? Probably so. As much as I love Sofia Coppola and Clémence Poésy for their understated chic ensembles, I have a penchant for the relaxed summer look of Jane Birkin during the sixties and seventies. I even took out my straw bag (that I usually limit for groceries/market shopping) for the day as I was out to see some friends and had to bring my jacket with me. I had my conference last week and handed in my final uni work, which means that I now have more than two months of freedom. However, work life still lingers on, as I received a pretty exciting project to work on over the summer months. The good side of it is that I will still be working from home and will have time to finally set up my home office. Vintage and antiquities furniture shopping it is! It will be exciting to see how working from home will influence my way of dressing, but I am quite sure I will stay true to my core style uniform of silk/linen shirts and my usual trousers.
Also, I wrote a bit back about my hunt for the perfect little black dress and have completely fallen in love with this Everlane black ponte dress . The cut is so elegant, yet the a-typical neckline provides a perfect nonchalant little detail. I am crossing my fingers they are updating their stock anytime soon.
