Inspiration Poesy!

This photo of Clemence Poesy appeared in the summer spread of In Style Magazine last month and I couldn't stop thinking about it.
It's such a great shot--so typically french. The espadrilles, the hat, and the fun use of mixed prints caught my attention immediately.

Last week I picked up this skirt at the thrift store for a dollar. And as soon as I saw it, I thought of the above photo shoot and how to fake this look on a dime.

Here are the components:
One slightly over-sized mens tee, (courtesy of H&M and the hubby) rolled at the sleeves and knotted at the back. (This item was a $4.99 sale purchase at the end of the season).
 One typically french chapeau, tucked over the ears.
 Espadrilles in woven cotton.
And I had a knockoff look for under 25$! This style is such an easy conversion from late summer days into the start of cooler, night weather.
And that's how we take our cues from the pros! Keep shopping those trends! Happy hunting!
