There's no telling where we'll be at this same time next year...*

top: James Perse
skirt: 60s pencil skirt
shoes: 80s flats
purse: vintage coach
beret: vintage
*listening to: Dredge - The Pariah, The Parrot, The Delusion "Ireland"

I realize that the only times I stop to take outfit photos these days is when I'm wearing a nice dress or going somewhere picturesque so I thought I'd mix it up a bit and snap a few photos right outside my apartment of an every day sort of outfit. I've been feeling really inspired by visions of 60s French girls in striped tops and pencil skirts. Add in flats for lots of walking around town and a satchel bag to tote around all my belongings and there you have it. That's pretty much what I've been living in lately. b (2)

I agree with what everyone else has said. You have done the "casual french chic" justice.

This outfit is simple, but I really love it. The skirt is a beautiful colour, the tank looks so comfy and the Coach bag is gorgeous. All in all, a spectacular outfit.
