Inspired by film and sport

Drawing on the combined inspiration of 1960's film characters played by Jean Seberg and Anna Karina and a serious obsession with the Olympics, I dressed in a playful eyelet swing skirt with a classic striped top and matching ballerina flats in some Team USA colors.
Over the past weekend I snagged this black, vintage Coach purse. I can't believe my luck, and its exactly the kind of useful everyday black bag I've been looking for forever.
Wish I could stay and talk, but I'm watching the US Women's swim team win some gold.

  7. Such a cute idea to pay homage to a favorite film character! I love the details on the skirt and go usa! I am almost never nationalistic, but I suppose the olympics brings that out in all of us :)

  9. definitely feeling the french new wave vibe you've got goin on here. I was looking up photos of Anna Karina today as a matter of fact--gotta get her hair down pat ;-) Also, I've said it once and I'll say it again, you are literally one of the most striking people I have ever seen--ever! I could look at your face all day ;-)

  14. I love how you drew from several inspirations to create this outfit. Anna Karina is amazing and so is the U.S. swim team! The title of this post is great as well.
