    Is it possible that you couldn't decide whether to say 'simple' or 'smile'? Because she is both and gorgeous, too.

    She is a good reminder to sit simply on a step and smile, while watching the world swing by. A nice play.

    Very fresh and innocent. And seems simple but not so! Look at that gorgeous skin, not a blemish on those legs – a mosquito bite, a scar?? Nothing! perfect. natural. I am extremely envious.

    The 'so simple, so perfect' lead in to this image is very apt. The shade of grey works perfect in the sunlight and the silk/voile texture make this type of clothing ideal for extreme sun. I love this look. Very me. Can I have it with opaques and a very warm jacket for the London frost?? Please?

    December 8, 2009 at 3:35 pm

    I'd rather see her standing up because, it being so simple, all I see is a pair of sandals you can get at J Crew and a hidden dress. The extreme simplicity combined with you sitting position, I think, detracts from the picture as a whole.

    The fabric of this dress makes it for me. It looks soft and even a little bit silky. I'd love to see the drape of how it falls, but it looks beautiful. Pairing it with the leather sandals makes it wearable for day and makes it seem like something that one could run around in while still looking very chic. Very nice photo!

    This is simple… but its not perfect.. its fresh… and she has the charisma… but theres something lacking..something colorful… the garment is great….i would add a lil bit of color to the sandals…maybe a summery yellow.. but u can see she is confident and comfy on those… thats what counts

    The simple summer look of Sydney is all very lovely, but what else have you spied? Am a little disappointed with the frock and sandals scene. Surely there are edgier looks there?

    (BTW did you know Sydney is sometimes refered to by Melbournians as "The Emerald City" a la Wizard of Oz fame?)

    I totally love her dress and the nude makeup, but those are a pair of ugly sandals (although they must be very comfortable when it's really hot, i would probably wear them too if there 40 degrees out)

    Wow, she has such fab skin it has to be said. I wonder if she is wearing anything underneath the dress in the form of a slip ect, it is difficult to tell because of her pose. This is such a great blog! :)
