    Fresh, simple and lovely. She has the essence of Audrey Hepburn. Damn now i wish i had long legs! This girl could wear anything and still look good. I love that it was taken in the small “pasillos.”

    She’s so beautiful I’m not even going to worry about whether or not her arm exists.

    I think that what makes this outfit special are the hues; the white into the light blue, transitioning to the gray and navy. And the shoes add a sense of attitude.

    she’s perfect. Just about right amount of layering. Air of ease about her. And shoes are excellent-they give some definition to the whole look.

    I so love this ensemble, particularly the scarf and the top. I love how the top accentuates the outfit, and how the skirt’s color appear as a contrast sans the overkill.

    This outfit is absolutely ace! the black shoes are the perfect counterbalance to the rest of the outfit’s color that goes so well together. it reminds me of a matisse in that way. Plus, when an outfit can make you forget that a girl is missing and ARM pretty much seals the deal for the best outfit ever.

    You can see the temperatures are still unstable, changing between chilly winds and warm sun.
    I love the combination of winterly wool, closed shoes, scarf and the light fabrics of the skirt/ dress and
    naked legs.

    The gray-blue shades make this outfit a lot lighter and more suitable for summer than would more saturated shades of blue.

    I think it is the shows that make this outfit. If she had chosen a frump sandal her outfit would have been overwhelmed with a relaxed feeling. I think it’s the balance of the coat between structure and relaxed that she then brings to the skirt and shoes that makes everything stand out.

    For all those fashion connoiseurs out there, does this outfit contain more than one waistline? I think it works wonderfully on her as she is model slim, on a regular person, I would not be so sure. Agree with other posters on the perfect blend of blues with the stone buildings in the background, and yes love the boots!

    I’m not keen on the layered skirt –it reminds me of things my 4-year old daughter wears. But the overall effect is fab, mostly because she is so beautiful and the colours are perfectly co-ordinated. I’m really studying how she’s managed to make the black booties and bare legs work with the rest of it.

    The layering is excellently done and the transition of the hues is creative. The move from a dark blue, to a lighter blue, to an eventual white is a lovely play on colors and tones. The backdrop is very serene.
