Young and Vibrant

There’s something I just love about this early photo of Jackie Kennedy.  Doesn’t she look so young and fresh-faced?  Like she believes anything is possible?  I’m going to channel that optimism today.  Care to join me?  The world is our oyster ladies…

    I love this photograph. She looks so dewy and confident. A good reminder that it’s the girl that makes the clothes and not the other way around. It wasn’t a pillbox, it was Jackie Kennedy in a pillbox. I could use a dose of that optimism too. Thanks for sharing

    Alex — Loved your comment. Dewy is the perfect word and you’re right, it was Jackie that made the icon, not the clothes.

    Brandi — Cheers to that love : )

    I love this photo as well, or any photo of Jackie for that matter. To me she is the epitome of class and confidence- a classic yet modern woman.

    I must say, I’ve never seen this photo before. That in itself is pretty surprising, as I am all about the Kennedy family. And I’m with you – embracing optimism is one of the most important traits. Have a beautiful day!
