This Vintage Photo of Elizabeth Warren in Jeans Is Everything


Has a pair of jeans ever fit anyone better? Elizabeth Warren’s entire outfit in this photo is perfect, and the sprig of flowers (lilacs?) is just the finishing touch.

The photo comes from the Twitter feed of journalist Summer Brennan and it really just made my day.  I can’t help but wonder if the jeans had stretch—they probably did not considering the photo was taken in 1979.

Brennan’s commentary really struck a chord with me: “it means something to me that a woman who, while walking across campus on a spring day, picked a little spray of flowers from a blossoming tree to take with her, could possibly become the next president.”
