what she wore when... she visited capri

We're hopping into the Way-Back machine today; back to August 1970 and the Isle of Capri with Jacqueline Onassis and her sister Lee Radziwill.   I recently came across this shot when putting together a spring wardrobe inspiration board for a friend based on Jackie's post-Camelot period.  After she left the White House she shed the pearls, pastels and pillboxes in favour of classic American sportswear with the occasional globe-trotting bohemian touch.   Forty years later you could still walk out the door dressed in these looks and be effortlessly chic (although I might tweak the cut on Lee's trousers).  Lee's bag and Jackie's sandals alone top my summer wardrobe wishlist!
