I am currently reading Mrs. Kennedy and Me by Clint Hill. I know I am not breaking ground here. She has inspired style for decades. But, if it ain't broke, don't change a gosh-darn thing!
Oh, Jackie...How did someone embody so much class while making it seem so effortless? Did she come out of the womb in white elbow-length gloves?!? I don't think I'll ever fully master this but a broad can try. So, I give to you a short list of the classic basics and some items I think that if Mrs. O were a broad in the '10s, she would for sure be pinning on her own board.

Summering at the Compound in Hyannis Port was all part of the Kennedy lifestyle. Jackie even made vacations look stylish with her head scarves, crisp white collared shirts and preppy style.
|That's it. I am rocking the head scarf this summer!|
These kicks look like something she would for sure purchase before her next trip to the Cape.

PearlsA staple for any broad. The best thing is they don't have to look stuffy or boring. Buy a chunky version or just a very long strand and wrap it as many times as looks good with your neckline. And, no, they don't have to be real.

I simply love the way this book described Jackie's Georgetown home where the Kennedys lived prior to JFK's inauguration:
Elegant yet warm? Lingering evenings by the fireplace? Yes please!! Yes, it's true we can't all have a perfectly decorated (read: EXPENSIVELY FURNISHED) home. But it doesn't have to be about price. I love this new book I recently purchased. It's about decorating for comfort and letting your personality shine through.
