For my birthday I was lucky enough to receive the book ‘Jane & Serge: A Family Album’, something I’ve long been after (after missing her book launch last year due to #tubeprobs)- and a book which I’ve subsequently spent a pretty long time flicking through (thanks Gem)! For as long as I can remember, I’ve been hugely taken by Jane Birkin’s style (so much so I’ve numerously considered impulsively cutting a fringe), but it’s only lately that I’ve really started taking style notes from the lady, and putting her spin on some of my go to outfits (nope, I’m not talking always going bra-less either, cheeky). After spotting some snaps of her in a boyish army inspired shirt (and low-and-behold spotting one on the Topshop shop front display- AS IF IT KNEW), this was little nod to the lady herself. I also paired the shirt with some gorgeous crochet espadrilles (taking a nod from Ms Chung) and an embroidered New Look dress which are both pretty perfect for sunny days.
This is probably for another post, but this has also made me think a bit about style evolutions, and how my style has changed since I began blogging- and even since last year. I’m not sure if anyone would be interested in reading more of my rambles on this, but I feel I’ve ever so slightly grown up in the way I dress lately (that’s not to say peter pan collars and macaron print is shut out of my wardrobe ; ) but I’ve been far more fond of beautiful basics, and quality- opposed to quantity and new things all of the time. I shan’t encourage you to scroll through my archives and evaluate all my sartorial mishaps (there’s been a few) but if anyone would be interested, maybe that’ll be some food for post-thought!
