I kept my accessoies to the bare minimum, with simple gold hoops and watch, but added a modern twist to the outfit with my leopard belt. The oversized Jackie-esque shades were also a must!
Now, I don't have a cute Gucci bag like Jackie's to add to the ensemble, but I needed to add my own spin on the outfit anyway. I found this darling tote at TJ Maxx, and I think it adds the perfect graphic punch for summer. I'm not sure if Jackie would have approved of that piece, but I like it. :)
I also had a little fun choosing a few other of Jackie's outfits, and trying to find similar pieces today:
|dress // pearls // gloves // shoes|
|trench // glasses // pants|
Many of you know that we've spent almost the past two weeks on vacation, and on Sunday I just happened to be in the American History Smithsonian Museum and toured the First Ladies exhibit full of their gorgeous dresses. I was interested in finding one in particular...
Forgive the crummy phone photo, I was trying to squeeze around people to get it. However, here you can see her trademark pearls and her "yellow silk evening gown with an overlay of crepe chiffon designed by Oleg Cassini" (according to the exhibit plaque), which she wore to their first state dinner in 1961. Exquisite and classic perfection.
