Summer is... Valentino and Jackie Kennedy

Jackie Kennedy has always epitomized summer style to me.   Easy glamour, windswept hair, a head scarf, a flat sandal, a bit of a ruffle and Valentino by her side.

Have you seen the book 'Un Mito nel Mito' (which translates as a myth within a myth)?  It is a small book of photographs by Settimio Garritano of Jackie Kennedy Onassis' holidays in Capri from 1969-1973.

And to me it is the Bible of Summer Style...

Summer is Jackie Kennedy Onassis in a turquoise headscarf and sunglasses:

Summer is Jackie in a ruffled skirt (I love this outfit):

Summer is Jackie in a flat sandal - and better yet, an Agnelli:

Summer is Jackie and Valentino in Capri:

Summer is a turquoise Valentino silk skirt with a bit of a ruffle and a white tulle top trimmed with white beads which give the illusion of coral:

Just add your favorite sandals and a big ol' pair of sunnies and voliá!  Jackie style!

Valentino turquoise silk ruffle skirt, white tulle beaded top.  Size 6.
