Love Her Style - Binki Shapiro

I adore her. She's a member of the band Little Joy with Fabrizio Moretti of The Strokes and is so so talented. She plays a myriad of instruments and has this dainty and old fashioned sound to her voice. Her style is effortless, simple, a little tomboy-esque but still feminine and sexy. I just feel like she'd be so fun to hangout (and share a closet) with!

Flower Shop

I went to the flower shop today. It was lovely and relaxing and I just wanted to buy every plant and shrub they had and give each a home. But instead I left with some basil seeds and am going to see if I can actually grow something. I have never attempted to grow anything on my own before so I thought something small was safe to start. Plus once it grows I'll have some fresh basil!

I snapped a few pictures (via instagram, follow me at kristenuous!) of the scene and what I wore.

Love Her Style - Jane Birkin

I thrifted two wicker baskets a while back that will function lovely as purses in the Spring.

They are small but not tiny and sturdy (not to mention adorable). I have a bit of a collection of wicker baskets I'll have to post sometime. I just love their rustic look - i use them as storage for socks/intimates, school papers, crafts, etc and they really give my room a "lived in" and eclectic feel which I like.

But then I got to thinking about what initially sparked my interest in wicker baskets and it hit me: Jane Birkin! A french model/actress/singer, she's effortlessly beautiful and one of my favorite style muses. I saw a photo of her years ago with this large wicker picnic basket as a purse on one arm and her husband on the other and I absolutely swooned. She is sexy, stylish, confident, talented and an endless source of inspiration. She dressed simply, but never looked plain - a balance I am continually trying to master.
Here are some of my favorite shots!

I'm sorry for the hiatus :( I'm just about done with school (I'll be a college graduate! oh man) and I am very much looking forward to having time to blog again. I've missed it!
