    I love this! Totally my style: simple, and yet she looks fantastic. I also love that she’s paying homage to menswear. I’d like to be her friend.

    The way her polo top being layered with a sweater then layered with a denim blazer and trench is chic chic. Love the leather brown bag, too. <3 :)

    Great All-American look. Love the interplay of the red purse, nails and lips with the blue and white.

    She’s even wearing some of Dorothy’s gingham. Look at her blouse.

    Being North American, I can relate to this style, it’s everywhere in Canada. Blue jeans, a shirt and sweater over top, a casual jacket over that. The red lipstick elevates it somewhat, but yeah, this is definitely a North American classic.

    Impeccable layering! The redness of her lips, another added touch of sophistication.

    I love the red lipstick!! I have gone with neutral shades for so long, this has me re-thinking my makeup bag…also, love her whole look!

    January 27, 2012 at 1:11 pm

    I would not have know this photo was taken in Paris if you had not stated so… her style and her face are so American.


    January 27, 2012 at 1:21 pm

    What makes the photo great is NOT necessarily her style. Her style has nothing too outstanding, in fact. Remove the lipstick that matches her purse and she’s no more.


    January 27, 2012 at 1:32 pm

    I love the red purse!

  64. Tracy

    January 27, 2012 at 1:33 pm

    January 27, 2012 at 2:26 pm

    So cute, I wonder where she got the red bag as far as I can tell they don’t make that bag in red anymore and it looks new…I want that bag. Love the jacket and the jeans too!

  73. debbie

    January 27, 2012 at 2:35 pm

    I had to come back and look at this photo again because I love it so much. If I were to put on a shirt, a sweater, a jean jacket and a pea coat, I would feel like the Michelin Man having hot flashes. How do people layer so much and look so great? It’s still a mystery to me.

    Like the red touch (bag/lip stick/nail polish)!

    Well, believe it or not people from the Midwest don’t all run around in fannypacks and mom jeans. Style is style, no matter where you’re from, as this woman so effortlessly demonstrates. I’m always pleased to see a fellow Midwesterner “surprise” the jaded of the fashion world.

    Ok I left Kansas 25 years ago, and that was not Kansas City, but small Kansas which is what most of Kansas is made up of, and she does look chic…..

    To have any fashion in Kansas in the 80′s in a small town made you into a subject of much talk in town…

    Perhaps it has changed a little.. Or perhaps she is from Kansas City, and believe me, that is much different then coming from a small farming town in Kansas? I would love to know which town she is from???

    I have lived in Kansas for most of my life, and even some of the smaller cities here are more fashion forward than you might assume. There is a plethora of beautiful, second hand and vintage clothing in the state, and buying such pieces tends to be a lot cheaper here than in more metropolitan areas. I’m from Wichita, but there are cities smaller than ours that easily rival us in sidewalk fashion. And my students at the university here often surprise me with their ideas and finds.

    This particular lady looks just beautiful though. Kansas simplicity meets a Parisian flair for sure.
