In theory this ensemble should strike fear into the hearts of fashionistas everywhere. Loud patterns? chunky open-toed shoes? Thermofleece-esque overcoat and oversized felt hat? What has the world come to!? But somehow this (extremely pretty) girl manages to make the whole thing look elegantly flung together and really quite chic. How and why it works we will never know, but somehow it does. X
I am so much feeling this look, it resonates in me. The colours, the patterns, the fabrics, the proportions. Ooh, pure love! This portrait inspires me to be more so I would feel alive and well and beautiful.
Now this is what I call style because it not contrived, not plagued with too many designer pieces right on trend, certain level of oringiality but most importantly she wears her clothes well instead of just being a hanger that is showcasing clothes.
Such a beautiful girl. I love her look, except would have preferred an equally colorful fall or winter print skirt to this one, which looks a little too summery/cotton-y with everything else. But she looks so pretty and cozy, it really doesn't matter. After all, it is spring in Australia, right?
Id say the most aussie thing about this ensemble is the red satchel which, if I'm not mistaken, is made by the iconic Australian label Country Road. I have the same, except mine hasn't worn nearly as nicely as the one in this photo. Kudos lady, giving us fellow aussies a good international sartorial rep! x
