Hello! Jenny here. I hope you had a nice week. Today I want to talk to you about style. How did you find your personal style? Were you inspired by fashion magazines, street style, the nature, your friends, your parents or maybe movies and music?  I remember one summer, when I was 7-8 years old, I was so excited by fashion, that I created  a whole schedule of different types of clothing combinations I was going to wear every day. I just loved experimenting and being creative and I guess I loved dressing up.

As I grew older, however, I started feeling the need to conform and admired what other girls (the cool girls) in my class were wearing. And the same thing happened when I started reading fashion magazines. I was never happy with my own style. It’s not until I actually started university and moved to a bigger city (Copenhagen) that I started experimenting again. The more I tried out, the more I learned about who I was. Today, I think I have finally found the forms, colours and materials that I feel comfortable in and that is a great pleasure. But having said that, I also love looking at other people’s style choices  and getting inspiration from cool, independent women with unique style (the ones we often see at Garance Dore and the Sartorialist). Here are some of my favourites, I hope you like them!

The way she has combined the milky pastel colours and the different textures is beautiful

Beautiful image, amazing colour coordination, the perfect amount of see-through and THOSE shoes 

This woman exudes happiness and comfort in her own skin 

I love her casual but preppy look and how the red accentuates her features

I admire Emmanuelle Alt because she can pull off any look in her own way, without caring about age, status or critics. That, and also that she wears white jeans in winter and looks great in them.

This last picture is me outside one of my favourite shops in East London. My friend took it for the Zara People! website last year.

 Whose style do you admire?
Have a nice weekend and see you next week!

    I found my personal style when I found my confidence.
    To exude happiness, sophistication and inner beauty, you have to look inside yourself and believe it is there.. and it is.. In your own unique way.

    Voila.

    I love the woman in pink! and those shoes are fantastic!!! the jeweled bag seems to tie everything together. The perfect outfit for a breezy spring day in Paris!

  3. My style is more the first one and the last one. I like to blend textures and a bit of styles, like a velvet blouse with jeans .. today we were at the Hippodromo, I wore denim trousers and a silk “hippie” blouse with ballet flats.
    It worked :)
