i have those shoes! they’re marc marc jacobs, from the late spring/summer collection. love the color-block effect, love the effect of all the ties (in the shoes and the skirt). just a really good overall look. well done!

I WANT, WANT, WANT, that skirt!
August 22, 2007 at 11:03 am
Perfect in every way. And I hate khaki!
August 22, 2007 at 11:05 am
So cute! Beautiful photo! Her look is great!

I like the wrapping at the waist’s tie-in with the wrapping at the ankles.
And I like how she pairs black up top with black below, mirroring the sand colour of the rest of her dress paired with the sand colour of her hair:
Nice double symmetry.
It feels a bit like something is missing, though.
Maybe this is part of the ‘undone’ / ‘done’ dichotomy of the Swedish way of dressing.
Must not appear like one cares too much or tries too hard.
I think that it is this casualness, coupled with the effortless good looks of the national gene pool that ups the ante of the whole Swedish look.
Effortless chic / feigned disinterest / confidence. It’s a potent combination.

I love the simplicity of her outfit. Simple hair, simple makeup. Putting all focus on that gorgeous skirt.

she looks gorgeous and i wouldnt normally like those shoes either but it all works as an outfit.
August 22, 2007 at 11:41 am
Gorgeous! I love how she’s wearing hardly any jewelry, only a bracelet.
August 22, 2007 at 11:50 am
All around beautiful and elegant.

I love the neutral coloublocking effect of the whole, and the way it stays simple yet youthful at the same time (updone, unfussy hair and whimsical ankle-tie shoes). Absolutely gorgeous.

Coco Chanel with a happier childhood: girlish and sophisticated at the same time. Is she wearing No. 5, or something more innocently cheerful?

She looks so young and innocent in that top,skirt and shoes that there is not much more to say.
August 22, 2007 at 1:05 pm
Wow that is gorgeous. She could be going out for coffee or to a swanky party. Is it really that easy or does she just make it look that way?
I also love that she isn’t afraid of showing off her pale skin – hard to pull that off in the U.S. Shows real confidence.

The Light in Sweden…beautiful.

um, I had a prom dress just like this – same colors and styling, except mine had sleeves. Prom was back 10 years ago. Neat how things come back around.
August 22, 2007 at 4:47 pm
OH! I lovethislovethis lu-huuuuv this!And I don’t say that a lot.
i love the proportions of this outfit. the bulk beige, followed by the thin strip of black at the top. it is like the old photographer’s ratio of 2/3 to 1/3. very attractive outfit!
August 22, 2007 at 4:56 pm
This is wonderful!
I will say again, the Sweden photos are my all-time favorites. Last trip and this one.
August 22, 2007 at 7:12 pm
WOW! Yes, she is a vision! I COVET the skirt. Anybody know where it’s from?
August 22, 2007 at 8:50 pm
some may like the mirroring of bows on her shoes and then on her waist, but i actually look out for that when i’m dressing up and try to avoid it. at most, i’d probably put the bows of my shoes at the back or vice versa.

So pretty!! I love how she’s wearing an evening look for day! really simple but standout style!!
August 22, 2007 at 9:33 pm
Sart, what time of the DAY did you catch her? She’s just so elegantly lovely, and this was during the day..
August 22, 2007 at 11:30 pm
Beautiful. And such cute shoes!
August 23, 2007 at 4:10 am
I LOVE the SKIRT ! would love to see it in deeper colours, but the whole look is beautiful ; i love the shoes, all fits perfectly ! i like that its kakhi more casual.have a nice day all ;)
August 23, 2007 at 5:59 am
Oh my god, isn’t that the Birkenstock model?
August 23, 2007 at 9:19 am
That skirt is absolutely beautiful!
August 23, 2007 at 11:00 am
She’s like a present waiting to be unwrapped. Sart- the light is amazing.
August 23, 2007 at 11:21 am
The skirt looks exactly like a Joseph one I have, but mine is in black silk – not sure if they did it in other fabrics but maybe. It is a wrap that you can adjust to wear around the hips, waist or bust. Can’t see the back of this one so can’t see if it’s the same.

7:12 – i’m pretty sure the dress is the kara janx convertible skirt:
it comes in a lot of different color combinations. i love them too!
August 23, 2007 at 1:42 pm
What a beautiful dress!!!! I want it absolutly!
August 23, 2007 at 1:44 pm
What a beautiful dress! I want it!
August 23, 2007 at 4:47 pm
Oh, this is such a great look. I’m coveting that skirt!
August 23, 2007 at 8:46 pm
August 24, 2007 at 5:16 pm
I am not a real fan of the tied up shoes, but her easy off the face hair, and the neutral colours of the top and skirt really help. The sash or the skirt in the beige keeps it noticeable yet in the background. She looks great.

The skirt is from Swedish label WHYRED. Check it out on http://www.whyred.se They do fab stuff!

I know, I think it´s boring with this symmetrical poufy 2007 fashion thing, you can find it in every hm here. and a lot of stockholm girls wear it.
still, that´s not swedish fashion, it´s just a part of it.
also, the sartorialist prefer to cover the more tailored look.
a lot of sthlm girls LOOK boring, but we also have A LOT REAL alternative clothing and people.
unfortunately the Sartorialist never covers this, but that´s just his thing.
