How lovely this photo is – it makes me wish I was back in Stockholm. I love how this girl isn’t afraid to do volume – too many women are scared that volume will make them look fat – and I love the fact that her serene beauty, makes a fairly ordinary outfit extraordinary.
Wow, collected, beautiful and warm enough to withstand freezing temperatures all at the same time. And Stockholmers always seem to have such simple clothes; they just work very, very well… where do these people get it from?!
I love her silhouette, not many girls could pull it off, but it’s the scarf that really pulls it together and her rosy cheeks that keep the femininity. Not crazy about the shoes, but she makes them work.
here I was going to be bitchy and say how she needs longer legs to carry this look off…but when I saw the close up I was enchanted with her face…truly angelic. Back to reality–how does she tie that scarf so haphazardly cool??!
i love how the lightness of her skin, hair and eyes contrast with the dark grey and black pallette of our outfit; she’s sweet, but with a dark edge. the contrast is very on-target with fashion right now.
This is one of those shots where I wish I knew what *you* are seeing, what you love about this look.
Not that I don’t think there are many elements to love – the piled scarf, the puffy as mini, her lovely face – but there are also a few elements to not love at all – the way the high-tops+mini make her legs look shorter/chubbier even though they are not either, her indifferent hair, the fit of the coat through the hips.
Clearly a beautiful girl, but for me boring and unflattering.
Although seriously this girl is very slim – why would anybody say she has “substantial” legs?! We live in a crazy world where 80% of the american population are obese but this girl supposedly has big legs.
Further confirmation that my little sister knows what she’s doing when she puts herself together to leave the house. I’m jealous of the cute booties and love the way that, rather than anchoring her look, they set it off with warmth and dimension.
I have to say I, too, don’t see the point in this picture. If it wasn’t for her lovely face she would look like a million other people on the streets of the entire universe…. puffy jacket, black, scarf…. In fact I think she doesn’t even make the most of it. I find that the volume on the top should be balance on the bottom somehow; those shoes don’t work. She needs to add a bit of an edge/personality to the whole outfit.
I also agree that her sweet, clean, fresh face makes the outfit! at first glane, it seems unexciting- but her rosy cheeks really make the whole outfit POP as something special! her tiny boots are especially cute- and the twist of the scarf is so playful.
I donÂ´t get it, but maybe thatÂ´s because IÂ´m a swede. very average look, and blonde/cute, duh, not very interesting? :) still like the boots. and the volume but itÂ´s not unusual. do not like the depressing colours.
Why not tall boots to form some congruence with the volume (for warmth I would presume) on the top? The legs, while lovely, are jarring in this instance in contrast to the heaviness of the parka and weighty scarf. The subject is lovely and appears quite comfortable.
The coat is lovely, but I don’t like the length of the boots and the colour of the scarf. Her outfit is too depressing and dull for her young fresh look. Could’ve added some colour with either the scarf or with patterned leggings.
I see armour again. Segmented right arm, row of buttons and carapace bottom. Invisible hands, serene face above subtly scrolled scarf. Fence/Gate as emphasis, the idea of protection from something hostile.
