    Her sandals make this girly outfit more mature, I reckon. Angelic creature!

    I would normally wince at something so bright, but I think she carries it off perfectly.
    I love the patterns, and what a gorgeous blazer! And the sandals just dress it down so it doesn't look too showy.
    Great post.

    Most of the time, when I'm looking at photograph of her in "street wear" she's wearing that blazer! And in such different ways each time.

    Or perhaps it's one just like that.

    I love all the colour.

    Wow!! These shots of Londoners are SO GREAT!!! The Brits are so darn stylish. Maybe it's just mostly London, like mostly New York in the U.S.

    I know that if she wore this great look in San Francisco, most people would stare and thing she was an idiot – often when I go through town with a moderately stylish and even remotely tailored or edgy, I get stared down by both men and women. The people in SF just don't get it – it's hard to live in such a beautiful city and be surrounded by such as style "challenged" populous. I guess it just makes me look better!!

    She's so cool. I'm reminded of two Dutch friends who went to circus school in Paris in the early 1980s. They were both tall blond Dutchies. In their mini skirts, they could hardly walk down Paris streets without causing a riot!

    (I think Paris was more conservative then.)

    And, thank goodness for the return of the (non-ballet) flat shoe. I love her fisherman's sandals.

    Wow, really fun! I hope this means this year will be colorful, even in winter! We need the uplift.

    I agree with a previous poster that the hurache-like shoes tones the outfit down to look very personal. Love them with graphics of the dress.

    A kind of nod to Mexico.

    Mooi! (which is one of my two Dutch words, along with the ever-useful lekker)
    Her tunic reminds me of my youth in the 1970s.
    She has magnificent legs, which would be great in any color.
    I love that she looks so fine while wearing practical shoes that a person actually can walk in for more than two feet.
    A lesson for us all.

    This is great! I love the colors and patterns and it somehow matches with her hair perfectly. I totally agree with anonymous back there about people looking at you funny if you wear anything different. I just switched from a little liberal arts school to a state school and I think half of the people I live with have pegged me as the weird girl just for not wearing jeans and t-shirts! I think it's just wonderful when people express themselves like this.

    I'm not sure this is and outfit anyone else could wear, but she sure sells it!

    RE San Francisco – I used to think when I worked downtown 30 years ago it was a dress-up town. I had 5 jackets I rotated through, and a rack of ties.

    Nowadays, it's rare to see someone NOT wearing jeans or black or both, and that's locals, tourists, and all classes from the mumblers in the tenderloin to the swells in Pacific Heights. NEVER again will you catch me dead in denim or black street clothes, although I reserve the right to wear my embroidered black cowboy shirt to cajun dances, and my evening jacket to formal events.

    Anon 1:47, I so agree. I used to get that when I lived in SF too. What I always wonder about is why these people feel they must sneer at a perfect stranger's clothing. Staring people down in the street is childish. Where I live now, I'm currently attracting glares from women (I'm a woman!) over loose tailored trousers, of all things!

    Two thoughts: One, when you sneer at people over how they're dressed, you're sneering at their self-expression and their creativity. NOT cool; does NOT contribute. Two, for what it's worth, the people who do this will probably be wearing what you're wearing *now* in a couple of years anyway — when all their friends are doing the exact same thing, so it's "safe" in their minds.
