Renee on the Riviera

I wish the holiday weekend wasn't over so this is my way of extended it.  I love these photos of model and muse Renee Perle by the famous photographer Jacques Henri Lartigue.  So many fashion designers and other photographers were inspired by them and it's easy to see why.  Those wide leg pants are perfection as is the lifestyle of lounging on the Riviera.  Those were the days.
