cinema scope

Mid-way through spring is always my favourite time to go through my closet, sort out my new season wardrobe and look to some of my favourite style icons for inspiration. 
For me, there is nothing better than watching a good film and discovering a new character with the closet of your dreams. Recently it was Keira Knightley in Last Night who had all the classic pieces I'm looking for. Think a great trench, simple sweaters and the perfect black dress.
There are far too many others to mention but I have included some of my favourites which I always find myself revisiting. On my shopping list for Paris are classic A.P.C button down shirts, a tan trench and a black coat, simple tees and sweaters in various colours, Araks lingerie, COS basics and a Celine bi-colour pochette!
Pictured are a few of my summer staples; buttoned up shirts and Phillip Lim drawstring waist shorts. What are yours?

Watercolours and handwriting by me, photo of my favourite shirts (Acne denim, Therese Rawsthorne nude cotton, Topshop white silk and Acne navy silk), photo of my favourite shorts (all 3.1 Phillip Lim), all other images are from my inspiration folder - sources unknown. 


  1. you're so funny with your phillip lim shorts...... the denim ones and the leather ones look like the same style hahahaha.. yeah i've been going through my closet too at the moment. I hate all my clothes. This always happens in Spring though so I'm not bothered too much. I just want to look like Brigitte Bardot or Sofia, or Jane Birkin.. And Ali McGraw's camel coat is amazing, I've always loved it. Did you ever read that article by Lauren Santo Domingo in US Vogue where she got the coat custom made by this Saville Row tailor?? It was amazing. I want to be lauren santo domingo.

    I love your shopping list for Paris - it's amazing!! My shopping list over the summer is going to be a pair of khaki pants, a calf-length navy blue jersey skirt, The swingy carly hunter oversized blazers at corner at the moment, repetto ballet flats, hmm.. :)


  2. Love those shorts!! I've reblogged that photo on my Tumblr, I hope you don't mind.

  3. Thanks Caz, no problem at all :)

    Hannah, I just found another pair of 3.1 shorts I want! Little leopard print guys from the holiday collection.
    I have to try and find that Lauren Santo Domingo article now, I agree about getting our clothes tailored (like Gaia Repossi!), so good.
