    Now Stockholm is a great and beautiful city but why did you skip Wonderful Copenhagen?

    is that a floral pattern on her dress?
    whatever it is, the optical blending that i see happening matches with the rest of her outfit really nicely.

    it also looks like she did some shopping at american apparel hahaha

    She looks like she just walked out of an APC catalogue. I love the textured knee socks.

    I love her look. She looks like a proper mod. I hope she loves the music too though, it would be such a waste if her personality did not match her look. Where is the parka from?

    I really like knee-socks, it is a pity, that once you are over 30 also look like over 30, they look rather embarrassing on you.

    What do you think? Is it a solution for wearing knee-socks over 30 not looking like a “school-girl wannabe”?

    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!

    it is great the way the jacket roughs up the sweet dress and school girl socks with ponytail.

    I saw this dress in H&M. I must say it looks better on her than the Hanger and Myself.

    love the knee socks with the sweetly patterned dress and utilitarian coat. hair and shoes finish it. she’s good.

    whoa. i've been looking for a good peter-pan collar dress for a while now. this is perfect (not to mention pairing it with the socks and coat).

    none (above) says the dress is from h&m? h&m in canada blows.

    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.

    Regarding the weather:

    It’s rather warm actually, temperatures hit 22 C at Stockholm today. Only thing is, that it gets cold as soon as the sun goes down.

    Don’t know at what time this picture was taken, but that jacket surely looks beautiful on her, in it’s own personal way!

    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.

    The color of her hair is lovely with that dress — and with her coat too — but mainly it complements her dress.

    Beautifully set up photograph, how she’s standing in front of the archway of pale stone surrounded by blush walls and even the on-looker dressed all in white!

    How i miss Södermalm! I was shopping there last winter. For me, one of the nicest neighborhoods from Europe.
    Sart, you should try to go to Nakkna, is a really cool shop. Tjärhovsgatan Street, 3.

    Enjoy it!

    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.

    Maybe I’m just too old. :-)

    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 Södermalm 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 (Tjärhovsgatan 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!

    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.

    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.
