I came across some photos of Jacquelyn Kennedy Onassis the other day and that is what came to my mind...style, elegance and grace. Not to mention beauty.
It's so confusing when you get to be a 40 something like me. What is style anymore? I love to shop but I seem to walk into stores and back out again, empty-handed. My "style", for lack of a better word, is casual. But it is not typical "mom" style...I know that for sure.
For some reason, it's important to dress like "me"...which is casual with a twist.
I like the sound of that. But if I ever decided to change (which I'm not planning at the moment) it would be Jackie's classic style I would go for. Look at her...she must have been some first lady!
Here are the essentials of Jackie's style, minus the pillbox hat:
Things You'll Need:
- Shift Dress
- White Gloves
- Simple Pea Coats with Big Buttons
- Formal Gowns
- Oversized Jackie-O Sunglasses
- Black Turtlenecks
- "Jackie" Handbag
- Cartier Tank Watch
...And one of my all-time quotes ...
