jackie o.

i have been packing all day so i deserve a little break, right?
i just came across 9-10 books/biographies about the kennedy's.
i have always had somewhat of a fascination with the kennedy family and love reading about the kennedy administration and political agenda.
ben and i just finished watching the 8-part mini series about the kennedy's yesterday. 
we can see why it has been called a bit controversial but we HIGHLY recommend it.
just make sure you take all the info in the series with a grain of salt.
i'm flipping through one of these books and finding tons of old post-its marking quotes and pictures that i like. 
most would consider jacqueline kennedy one of the most influential first ladies to ever occupy the white house. 
she influenced fashion, american living, and politics.

i wouldn't mind owning these dresses.

or this one.

my love for jackie and her timeless style will never die.

I love that pic of her and the baby, how sweet, I've never seen it. These are gorgeous photos. It is an interesting political family, thats for sure!

Whenever I see photos of Jackie, my firs thought is always "I wish we still wore gloves!" Totally impractical, but somehow so much classier!

I agree, she was a truly timeless, classic beauty with such an elegant sense of style that forever influenced fashion!

sometimes i wish that i was born back then..
but then again i have a feeling i STILL wouldnt be nearly as classy as that lady. haha.
ps. bravo for watching an 8 part series that isn't real housewives/ biggest loser.
im not nearly as brave.. or maybe i just have ADD. ha.

I love jackie O.
You're right. Her style is timeless.
Recently at the mall it seemed like all the dresses were inspired by her :) She is truly beautiful!

I totally agree I love her style and she (from stories) was a very sweet and caring lady. I absolutely love the pic of her in the yellow dress

Brooke said...

I love her! I have always wanted that pink dress :) I watched a documentary on TLC one night and was like up researching more stuff about them. They are all so fascinating!

Great blog by the way :)

She (and that whole era) were just sooo classy. I love the pink dress picture!
I'm dying to watch the show, my Mom did but I was going to wait for the dvd's... Katie looks amazing as her in the ads.
