Lately most of my inspiration has come from Isabel Marant. I wear her tribal jeans like a loyal follower and have been drawn to the simple detail for a while now.
Speaking of Parisians, IRO is one of my favorite French designers (see my other notes about IRO here) and I purchased these tweed IRO shorts at Glassworks Studios in London (they ship all over the world).
As for the details: I found this inexpensive beaded belt at Urban Outfitters and it provides cohesion for this look. I wear my black booties on a daily basis- with shorts, dresses, leather pants- everything. My new Helmut Lang Ankou bag has become a daily accessory as well.
