    Love the pairing of that dress and belt. She is perfectly put together, with the pink lips to match.

    I love this whole look, but I feel like those long necklaces kind of make the look. So simple and so chic.

    I love this woman because she feels so accessible. Her smile and her pose feel very warm. I really like her dress, it’s the perfect summer day dress. The colours and style are lovely, and the bag has the same casual elegance to it.

      I agree. She looks like a fabulously stylish everywoman- not like one of the fashion brigade- Not that there’s anything wrong with the fashion brigade, but just that she makes it all seem possible.

      Agreed. Her style looks effortless but still absolutely chic and modern. Love it!

      My thoughts exactly! She also personifies summer and is relaxed,open and utterly confident!. Such an approachable beautiful woman. Big YES to everthing about and on her. Now that’s style!

      I want to be her pal!

    Another perfect summer look – a simple dress and flat sandals. I love her wonderful accessories. Bravo!

    We are back to lightness after a few b/w pictures of hard reality.
    This is a classic and timeless style that I love. The print of the dress is discreet and the accessories perfect. The straw bag is right on as well as the shoes, but what I like the most is her hair and the pose.

    Amazing! It reminds me of a dress my mom used to have in the 70s…now where is it??? :D
    She looks elegant, polished, and completely confident in her look, and that projects a very personal sense of style.

    I love it when people “wear” clothes instead of clothes “wearing” them, and you can only achieve that level of “fashion approachability” when you choose pieces that convey your personal vision of style–new or vintage!

    A lovely and quintessential vintage look. It reminds me vaguely of Roman Holiday :)

    It also looks perfectly contemporary.

    What a fabulous dress! Having said that, she makes the dress by being incredibly chic in a very low key way which I love.

    Whenever I see photographs like these, I can’t help but strive to be such a chic lady as I grow older. With the help from these people as role models, I believe I can achieve a classy look as this.

  46. Margas

    August 29, 2012 at 3:42 pm

    I agree with Tiffany – ladies like this one are so inspirational! I too hope I will look something like this when I’m older. Cool, confident&classy!

    Finally, a beautiful, mature woman wearing a dress I can wear . . . Just at the knee, perfect.

    I love the red and blue combination of the flowers. The dress is perfect and she is gorgeous.

    She looks more feminine in that dress and she is so sophisticated and more beautiful. A smile can work magic in our lives so we need to put it on all the time.

    The hair is all wrong. Had it been less coiffed, the outfit would have looked more decidedly modern-vintage and less frumpy.

    • tallulah

      August 30, 2012 at 3:13 pm

      I beg to disagree – I suggest classically vintage and not the current over-thought, artificial, fake vintage seen far too often just to attempt to ‘make a statement’. This lady owns her look and I happen to love it.

    • dcinDC

      September 3, 2012 at 1:07 pm

      I don’t know how you could get much less “coiffed” unless she just let it hang. She’s a mature, polished woman – stringy hair would NOT have improved this – this is spectacular – all of it – just like it is.

    Love the outfit.
    Perfect for Firenze
    Definitely need for flats in that city with all the cobblestones!
    The florals are very saturated and light at the same time.

    I could look at this all day. Thinking how heels and a pashmina shawl could easily turn it into a nice evening look too.

    I love the traditional look, of this Dress, fresh and clean.

    It looks effortless, that vintage dress and the bag, the necklace, the shoes. Everything goes perfectly together. I can’t believe this is an “On the street.” She looks like a seasoned model, and the entire picture tells a story.
