    Oh, yes–actually everything here, just right! But the light through that hair is so fantastic, she could wear literally anything…

    She reminds me of the tom-boy chic that Ines de la Fressange does so very well.

    Isn’t she Ines de la Fressange?! Absolutely chic, as always! Ines is my fashion icon, since I was 14 years old (and I’m 32 now).
    Simply the best.

    Simply beautiful! Love the shoes and sunglasses! Why do Europeans always know how to wear and tie scarves better than the rest of the world?!

    I wish it was spring where I live!

    White denim is one of my favorite staples of all time. I think it looks chic and elegant. Love her shoes, and love the way she tied her cozy scarf. Sart, the lighting here is lush and fantastic. Great shot.

    so chich, so simple.

    I think you can achieve that kind of elegance just if you’re slim and in grat shape like the lady here.

    You also have to be born with such fine bone structure…..

    How about who’s a little bigger?

    That is such a beautiful photograph and it’s all about that light streaming in! The way the woman is captured against that light is also great. I like her outfit, but not really her shoes. Otherwise, I just love the photo.

    For a second, I thought she was Ines de la fressange, but then when I saw the Vivier shoes and the IF, she is Ines.
    She really has nailed the casual elegance

    I like this look. It’s very simple compared to a lot of the looks you present, yet very fun. Love the snakeskin bag especially. Her personality seems to be easygoing, like her hair.

    i love this look…it’s a great transition shot here sart from winter to spring…the flats and the white pants paired with the heavy coat and scarf show an optimism that we are not bound to our layers for much longer…

    and i love the bag…love love it…very chic woman…

    Is that a scarf or a sweater around her shoulders? It is sort of thick toward the back like a sweater. Happy YES to big glasses/short hair, Skinny white pants/flats, metallic(snakeskin?)bag/grey scarf. Is the fringe on her sleeve or the bag?
    Her hand in pocket is a charming pose.

    That light …

    I left you a message few days ago, but, again, ….That’s the real “romanesque” for me …

    Ines -full of grace- with her, time is no time, age has no age…

    Few years ago for chanel and…teenager forever, I love her , she’s rare, a Lady from another time, not a fashionaddict.. STILE con…questo je ne sais quoi in più…
    She could be Italian really …

    Thanck’s for that slice of spring …

    i really like this outfit.

    the shoes look so cute against the white trousers (jeans?). interesting contrast – bulked up around the neck and so much bare foot showing.

    the bag is a little jarring though – i wanna see more of it because i can’t work out whether i like it or not!

    foxy hair too.great backlit shot btw.

    Well Sart, there you go again. God created the planet, Yoseminite Sam, and decreed that only the Milanese women could wear over-sized sunglasses with an “oh so Jackie O” look in those totally mega fab slim pants in the middle of .. Hello … February, with those cute-fem-Louie cat torze shoes. You and her got it so right at that space in time. Thanks for sharing.

    Great picture and outfit. I’m so envious – we are all in layers of winter clothing and up to our waists in snow and slush in Toronot, and there is more coming -no sign of Spring in sight:-(

    A perfect mixture among Jackie Kennedy and Audrey Hepburn. If they were asking me to define the word elegance with a photography undoubtedly would do it with this one.
