I have always liked this type of knitting, Norwegian or whatever it is called. I know it comes in and out of fashion, but to me it is a classic. I admire her boldness in pairing it with gingham, and keeping it basic, simple and clean. Great look! Jorge from W Palm Beach
IÂ´m so glad the classic pixie cut is coming back again! Her clothes fit with her generous smile. ThatÂ´s a typical beginning of autumn clothes combination in the nordic countries, when end of August can be really cool already. Woollen cardigan with cotton mini skirt and a heavy coat, or thick tights with a tiny top and heavy scarf – youÂ´ll be seeing a lot of that I bet.
i think what we have all learned here is that swedish folks are all very beautiful. anyway…i would totally wear what she’s wearing, except for that it almost never gets cold enough to do so where i live.
Winter is coming. Excellent job of layering the sweater and coat. Beautiful colours that match her own nicely. A little odd how her shirt waist is sticking out like that though, looks like she forgot to wear trousers.
Love the fact that this silhouette seems so spontaneous. She could well have woken up this morning, looked out the window, noticed that the wind was up and pulled out some tights, an old jacket and comfy cardie to pop over her nightshirt. Not forgetting to brush those pearly whites, she would have headed for the bakery and newsstand only to bump, whoops, on the way, unexpectedly into The Sart!!…giving her something to grin so impishly about all day.
Yes,she really smiles nicely and is very cute and pretty. A brave gesture to mix the colorful thick knit with that small,light dress. Well maybe her tights are 60-80 d, otherwise she might freeze herself. DonÂ´t know what the temp. was when you took this photo though.
She looks wonderful: very happy and confident. I love the hair — my cut is just like her’s and it definitely brought out a lot of similar qualities in me too. I think a great cut really does pull an outfit or style together. She’s the perfect example!
I love everything about this shot! She mixes the colors wonderfully and I love the knitting/embroidery on her jacket! I love how she mixed nautical (blue and white striped skirt) with folksy (the cardigan).
Isn’t it wonderful that you can frame your subject as you deem fit. How we carry ourselves and wish to present ourselves is an aspect,and maybe even a window into, our personality. You usurp that personality to paste your own image of reality. How silly of people to believe individuality, for it can only exist by its own pure representation, can be fully captured in a photograph. Not that there is anything wrong with putting your mark on your image, you are the artist.
Yet the assumption in the last line of your post, that anticipation has revealed something more raw, is incorrect. By touting the need to anticipate to achieve a great shot, you give more truth-value to that later shot. Yet it is as much a crafted fragment of reality as any other photograph.
There seems something terribly wrong with photographs– the ability to possess what others , perhaps foolishly, understand as reality. Maybe its the audience who is at fault though, for believing in the reality of photographs.
I’d like to start out by saying that I absolutely love your blog. I’ve been visiting it for about a year now, and I’m always inspired by people’s creativity, and their energy that seems to come straight through your photos.
I looked up the weather in Stockholm. 16 to 18C is not cold, and I’m commenting from Canada, where it’s 2 degrees warmer than that today. A sweater AND tights AND sweater-coat? Vibrantly beautiful girl!
OMG! She is adorable! I want to wear my hair like hers! I love the sweater peeping out of the coat sleeves, the dark middle area of the sweater pulls the jacket in to make a great outfit. I love the rumpled dress and leggings too. I wonder what she was wearing on her feet?
I like her look. She looks so nice and innocent. I’m a big fan of knits too… But my favourite of all the pic is definitely her haircut…I instantly thought of Jean Seberg in “A bout de souffle” when I saw her. Just lovely.
I love this so much, I cannot tell you. So fresh! So natural! And speaking of which, I always find it amusing when people go on and on about how beautiful the Swedish people are. I see lots of beautiful people around me in North America every day – or elsewhere – but the difference is that Swedish people seem to look like people who actually walk places! And eat healthy food! (And, maybe it’s the pictures you’ve shown, but they don’t seem to bother much with makeup for daytime.) I like this much better than the movie-starlet wannabe looks that so many people over here seem to covet.
I have her haircut – and often feel like I look like my little brother – so thank you for posting this lovely photo and reminding me it's all about the attitude! she's soooo cute and although we've had amazing weather here in Indiana this summer this photo makes me anxious for autumn, sweaters & tights. :)
I know that you probably didn’t intend your description of this photo to be sexist, Sart, but it does come across that way to me. Your words uphold the stereotype that “women ‘should’ smile; only men are allowed to be serious.”
Thank you for a picture that champions how beautiful a woman can look with short hair. I have this haircut and love it. It takes confidence to chop off your locks and let the world see you with nothing to hide behind.
She’s lovely and makes the whole look seem effortless, now that is what style is all about.
