I bought a book entitled Young Jackie for my little niece of the same name. I flipped through the book and it is full of beautiful pictures of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis taken throughout her childhood by famed photographer Bert Morgan. There is a little bit of biographical information included between the pages of beautiful black and white pictures, most of which depict a young Jackie on horseback.
I love the idea of my little Jackie having a role model such as Jackie O to look up to; and how cool is it to have a role model with the same name?! Of course, that's not reason enough for a little girl to look up to someone, but Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis definitely fits all of what should be the criteria for a young lady to aspire towards. She was not only a fashion icon, she was also a contributor to the arts and she was a truly graceful, cultured woman. In her later years, she returned to her love of literature and became an editor.
Upon graduating from college with a degree in French literature, she and her sister, who had graduated from high school at the same time, took a trip to Europe together. They documented their journey in the autobiographical One Special Summer.

|Love her in white pants and a |
black top, and that white trench is
pretty fabulous too!

I love her in timeless, chic navy, and that scarf is
