style icon: jane birkin

by - 8:21 AM

As a self-proclaimed francophile, I worship all things French (especially fashion), much to the disdain of mes amis who prefer all things (read: food) American and their conversations in English.

I can't help but look to the lovely Jane Birkin as one of my main style icons. She's the perfect embodiment of classic French style: her shaggy brown hair perfectly compliments her wardrobe très françaises of striped tops, flat boots and pea coats. {It helps that she has the perfect tall & slender physique to pull about anything off, flawlessly.}

This, let's admit ithard core girl-crush has inspired me to take a pair of scissors to my own hair, on more than one occasssion in the search for a similar hairstyle. Today is no different: I'm ready for an adventure in self hair-cuts and trade my side-swept bangs for some blunt fringe...

Homegirl invented "boho-chic" and can make lace or chambray shirts look amazing and effortless. I mean, who else could pull off a naval-grazing lace evening gown look elegant without being trashy? Elle est la meilleure!
