    She is adorable. Was there ever a time when Parisians didnt wear scarves? I am kind of sick of it.

    A young Carla Bruni – very beautiful, elegant and chic. A very natural smile as if he is giggling and enjoying the moment. Normally I would study what she is wearing, however, in this instance, her natural beauty surpassed her outfit. Lovely to wake up to such a wonderful picture.

    She looks like a wonderfully fun person. I have to say I don’t really get the summer purse with the winter gloves and the spring weight outfit? It seems like the seasons are all mixed together. Maybe my southern roots of matchy-matchiness are taking over.

    To me she is Marianne, the impersonation of France, and everything Parisian. Glorious, simply glorious. Her happiness is contagious. You can’t look at this picture and not feel your cynical heart go mild.

    I’m wearing the hell out of my jean jacket too. It’ll never look dated especially when it fits like this.

    I’m kicking myself for giving my denim jacket to Goodwill. Who would ever think to carry a straw bag in winter with shearling and a big scarf? This blog once again confirms that being chic is all about breaking the rules.

    Just goes to show, nothing, not an expensive designer handbag or pair of shoes, or “fashion forward” outfit, none of those things can beat confidence and a great smile :-)

    She looks so comfortable with herself and happy with the day that I can’t take my eyes off her…
