I agree with Julicious. As I tabbed down to see the entire pic, I loved it until I got to the sneaks. It would all work better for me if she wore darker shoes. I think the balance is off with the white.
@Julicious The sneakers complement the outfit. They look a bit retro. They are also very clean, which means she tries to act like she doesn’t care what she wears (she just puts on whatever she finds on her way to the living room), but truly she calculates every little detail.
I guess this pretty girl just came from the gym. I HOPE she just came from the gym. Or maybe she’s got a lot of walking to do today and her “real shoes” or boots are in her bag.
From the knee up it’s fine – that pricey bag with grandpa’s coat work okay (although I’m not a big fan of keeping the long, removable shoulder strap on when you’re using the hand straps. It just hangs there flaccidly looking like it needs a job).
Sometimes you’ve got to sacrifice style for practicality but I really can’t figure out why she would wear those shoes and socks when there are plenty of great sneakers out there.
Surprisingly, I do not mind the shoes. I think I actually (gasp!) like them? Possibly. What really bothers me is the dark grey socks. They are just oh so wrong. The look minus the socks is interesting and pretty fab. Love, love, love the bag!
The coat is fabulous! the leggings and sneakers ruin it for me but maybe i’m getting old and stuffy? Passionate about that coat though. i have a real thing for men’s tailoring from the 20s and 30s at the moment.
Gorgeous palette, including the pleasing background. However, there is nothing special about the shoes & leggings with that wonderful coat. I agree with Anonymous; it's nice from the knees up. The photo itself is lovely. As always.
Parisians or French people do wear sneakers or jeans but usually they don’t walk around with those for sport. Actually, I don’t like those sneakers (to white for me) but it puts a little humour in the outfit.
