Ah! Once again one of those looks I know I shouldn’t like, but I do. It feels as thought the outfit starts with her hair, perfect in color and flow to her dress, which almost peeks from under her jacket. Somehow the color of her socks/leggings is very close to the color of her coat, yet they match. And finally, her shoes that are utilitarian almost to the point of looking medical. Oh, but it works! Maybe it is her honest “I like what I am wearing and I don’t give a damn what y’all think” attitude. But don’t listen to me; I often look at the hobos on the street for inspiration!

Okay, I will be the odd opinion out… the short dress with the smocking and rounded collar, with the knee socks and flats, looks more like something I would expect on a six year old. That said, the young lady’s hair is marvelous.
Young people truly love to dress with style. Then life comes along to slap the shit out of them a little, opportunities narrow, the metabolism slows, and pretty soon they’re putting on the daily uniform with fanny packs. Wait and see.
I don’t know, I have seen this kind of style all over Sweden for the past five to ten years – there’s always a girl in a green parka around, no matter what. But I nevertheless dig her style, if nothing else because it makes me nostalgic.
Lovely photo as usual but… there is something slightly haphazard about this look that does not quite gel together. The shape of the dress and the parka somehow drown each other out. Love the bottom part but the top seems just too bulky, too overwhelming.
Oh, wow, I have the dissenting opinion here: I’m not fond of this at all. Yes, looks like a child’s outfit, a type of “now-mod,” I suppose, as well, but I don’t find it terribly flattering. Additionally, it looks like so many photos on other blogs – not very inspirational.
I love this look! The proportions are excellent, including the slight drape of the socks around the ankles. It’s winter here in sydney, but apparently about the same temperature as stockholm (18-20 celcius) – I can definitely see myself wearing this for the transition from late winter to spring.
I was at S√∂dermalm last autumn and I fell in love with that neighborhood. Cute, clean, quiet and with lots of cool and cheap stores. Just amazing. Sart, you should go to the Nakkna shop (Tj√§rhovsgatan 3), they have a Demeulemeester touch and his prices are reasonable enough. Pretty little shop, but with zillions of tons of stylish things. Wish I was there now!
Boy, i’m missing something here. Pretty face. Period. To me the clothing looks dumpy and lifeless, At or below ..ordinary. I’ll keep reading the comments and hope for a clue; but right now i’m thinking the empress is naked.
Thank you, I’ve bin searching for a way to wear my knee-socks. This picture will be my inspiration when I get dressed next time. the best thing is that the picture is taken in my hometown stockholm, funny how it could be.
Love her hair, multicolored knit dress, and how the brown coat sets the colors off, but I think she’s too bulky on top. If the dress were of thinner knit or the coat was more close-fitting the ensemble would look better.
