Every now and then, when I'm getting dressed, I'll be inspired to go for a certain style. Whether I see a picture or hear a song or think of an outfit Hannah wears in "Girls", it'll spark something in me. On this particular Sunday in May, I saw some pictures of Francoise Hardy on tumblr and was reminded of my love for the French style that was so prevalent in the 60's and 70's.
I love anything that was worn by Anna Karina, Bridgette Bardot and of course, Francoise- and this photo got me thinking about what to wear that day...
After perusing my closet and improving parts of the simple outfit that I didn't have, I wound up inverting the color scheme & skipping the knee socks (it was a cool-ish morning but not freezing, so the socks would've been just extra heat).
|Me & Francoise- two peas in a pod, right?|
|My hair is getting super long again|
|Shoes are always the hardest part of getting ready, as I don't always have 20 pairs to choose from|
I think I did Francoise proud, given what I had in my closet. Do you get dressed some days to try & 're-enact' a photo, video or song?
