Throwback Thursday: Jackie O Style

So I've had these photos all week, and I just didn't know what to write about! Then Gwynnie Bee sent out their #Throwback Thursday newsletter featuring the style of First Lady Jackie Kennedy Onassis, and everything just clicked! I LOVE Jackie O's iconic style and I have since I was a child. One summer when I was an awkward teenager and big, bug eyes sunglasses were in style, my sweet grandfather made the passing comment that I reminded him of a "young Jackie Kennedy." I really took the comment to heart and devoured all the information I could. This was right around the time she passed away, and I remember buying all the commemorative magazines celebrating her life and pouring over them for weeks. So I guess it's no surprise I am attracted to classic wardrobe pieces, like this one!

Dress: c/o Gwynnie Bee


Ladies, Gwynnie Bee has been on point lately with the selection they are offering. I've got so many cute dresses to show you, and this Taylor dress is no exception. I love "fit and flare" dresses because I think the silhouette is super flattering, and I love the retro vibe it gives to an outfit. But the print makes it decidedly modern, so I don't look like I'm playing dress up!

I spy with my little eye... A Sean hiding behind me!


 I decided to play up the fifties' feel of the dress by pairing it with a pearl necklace and a sparkly brooch, and I think Jackie would approve! Who's your style icon?

I love this dress! The back is so modern, and the silhouette is so vintage. It's the perfect combo!

Are the colors of the dress black and white or navy and white? Either way, I love it! I really like the back of the dress! I think Jackie O would definitely approve!

Super cute!

I've been admiring this dress for a few months now. It's pretty on you and I love how you've styled it.

Katie Frost said...

Great outfit. I especially like the way you combined the pearl necklace with the brooch.

Katie Frost said...

What a pretty dress! I love the little cutout in the back :) Hi Sean!

Katie Frost said...

Love that dress!

Katie Frost said...

adorable dress! Where is the sparkly brooch from?

As far as my favorite icon, right now it has to be Halle Berry. She is almost 10 years older than me, but she looks great and pulled together at all times. Plus her hair is gorgeous (sort of reminds me of yours!)

black & white & chic all over! I love the dot pattern and fun cut out in the back!
My style icon - Oliva Palermo...?

Thank you so much Van!

It's black, but navy would be beautiful!

Katie Frost said...

So chic and fun! I love this!

Katie Frost said...

OH! This is stunningly gorgeous, Katie! I absolutely love this outfit, and you look beautiful in it. Jackie O is a great style icon! I'm not really sure who my one icon would be, but I love Audrey Hepburn's style as well as Reese Witherspoon's...and I also kind of like Taylor Swift's style, too!

Katie Frost said...

So cute! :-) Love the pearls.

My style icon...probably Duchess Kate. Not because I have a lot of call for suits, dresses, heels, and hats in my life. But because she wears what she likes and doesn't care what anyone thinks about it. I like that attitude.

Katie Frost said...

I really like that print, and the jewelry goes so nicely with it! I also love outfits with a retro vibe, and I think that if I had to choose, my style icon would be Laura Petrie/Mary Tyler Moore in Dick Van Dyke. I love her pedal pushers and silhouettes, and she always looked effortless!

Katie Frost said...

Beautiful! I love Reese Witherspoon, Zoe Saldana, and Gabrielle Union's styles.

Katie Frost said...

I love Jackie O! This dress definitely is a nod to her style, but it's also so modern! I love the graphic pattern and the little cutout in the back. So cute!

Katie Frost said...

Such a classy dress! Michelle Obama & Solange are my style icons. I love their individuality!
