    Wow – this is the first look in a long time that I not only admire, but want to copy! Perfect for the city in the late summer.

    I don´t know; is it just me or is there something wrong with the colors on this picture? Or is it just her tan? I wish she wore some heels, maybe that would give her a healthier look ?

    Blue pleats, please! I love the ease and the comfort. She looks serene, like she just had a great afternoon. Contrast this look to Anna's last look and I'll take this one any day. Gorgeous.

    I like the mix of fabrics with the passementerie and pleats, stopping just short of upholstery! Also like the way accessories chime in with her hair.

    Love the color coordination – light colored trim and design on the skirt, light sandals, blond hair, tanned legs.

    She is carrying a serious looking purse – I like it!

    Who does the car belong to? EJL 2009!

    Just noticed the white lines on the street – dotted and solid – also nice effect, as is the muted buildings,poster and flag.

    That skirt is gorgeous. In my opinios it'd be better to use higher shoes to make her look even more tasteful. The bag can't be more perfect for the look.

    This, I love. Simple but textural. I'm wondering if the blue overlay on the top half of the skirt is part of the skirt or something she added. Very stylish.

    She is really beautiful! I love just about everything here. The colors, her hair, the skirt. I even like the sandals – and she has a lovely facial expression, very serene.

    From her waist up is pure classic Scandinavia chic, while the bottom half suddenly gets more inventive. The sandals are genius with the shapes in the skirt, and keep the whole thing grounded, I think… really like this one.
    What's her story, Scott?

    I really love this original look. This week you seem to have returned to featuring more people who put together their own look with pieces that may or may not be designer labels but the results are completely unique and stylish. Cheers to that. It's the reason I began to follow your blog in the first place and where I got inspiration for my own wardrobe. Pictures of women who could pass as models wearing fabulous designer clothes and shoes? Boring because frankly, I could by a fashion magazine for that. I prefer your eye for unique fashion created by people who aren't afraid to be original.

    Keep up the great work!

    The outfit looks perfect on her, very stylish and tasteful and fun too. What great colors! And I *love* that she is wearing flats; it makes me wince to see all these photos of women in excruciatingly high heels but she looks like she can actually enjoy a walk.

    I love her hair, her skirt, her shirt, her face&body, but I don't like the shoes with that skirt, heels would look much better, or ballerinas, but not those sandals.

    I love this look too. She looks great. I'm wondering if the skirt is by the Barcelona designer Custo? I have one with the same pleats and a detail around the hem in contrasting colour and texture. I bought it here in Noosa, Australia but saw his stores recently in Madrid and Soho, New York.

    This is my first post although I have been following for a few weeks now – and I love it ..
    This look is fabulous, a complete antidote to the current picture. So much looks like it is trying way too hard at present.
    This lady owns her look, does not appear to bow to trends and as a result looks beautiful, confident, timeless and utterly chic.
    More than anything I love that she is wearing flats. This screams confidence to me and results in total elegance. All the stars for this one !

    She is stunning! Love her skirt, shirt, hair, tan, all the details coming together. And love, love the shoes for this look — it would have been so much less original with balerinas or heels. She owns it and it shows in her expression.

    Great work, Scott — you keep it so original with pics like these. Want to see more

    its all very eccentric, isnt it? her skirt, the bag, perhaps even the shoes, and herself. it works if the peasant-y vibe doesnt bother you…

    Lovely girl and nice clothes too. The shoes, however, change the shape of the legs and have too wide an opening in the front. Perhaps, it's me – I've always disliked sandals (very flat ones on women, and of every other variety on men) – but they distort the legs; I agree that flat 'ballerinas', Superga runners in blue or white or a higher heel shoe (even those wedge espadrilla like shoes with strings) would have made the ensemble perfect.

    The skirt is memorable. Perfect choice of shoe – sandals.

    the whole outfit would have been perfect, however i find that either the length or the fullness of the skirt doesn't do wonders for her legs. just an opinion.

    Am I the only one noticing that the colour of her shirt and the top of the skirt make her look like she has one REALLY long torso and VERY short legs? Love the individual pieces but together they aren’t the most flattering on her.
