To me, no other Swedish blogger/stylist does it better than Columbine Smille. Her style is minimal, slightly androgynous and perfectly proportioned. She takes it back to basics by starting with a simple foundation of classic pieces then builds her daily fashion-forward ensemble by adding a pop of color or mixing interesting prints.
Smille has rightfully claimed her notorious title of ‘boyfriend’ stealer due to her love for boyfriend jeans and was my inspiration for my earlier post ‘How to wear boyfriend jeans like a girl’.
Here are some of my favorite Smille moments:
Acne ripped boyfriend jeans with Alexander Wang shoes.
Isabel Marant mesh dress, Dolce & Gabbana heels, Carin Wester bomber and Whyred sweater dress.
H&M jacket, Weekday sweater, Acne jeans, Kurt Geiger bag and shoe
Acne Jacket, shoes & jeans. Bag by Chloe.
Monki jacket, Acne t-shirt, vintage skirt, ALDO shoes & Chloe bag
There is one key ingredient that never fails to prevail in pre-fall collections and without doubt it’s had another makeover. Designers such as Michael Kors, Marni and 10 Crosby Derek Lam, are putting a modern twist on the traditional Scottish heritage by creating bolder patterns and mixing neon colors together to create a more youthful look.
Here’s to the Rise of Tartan!

I have a huge crush on Kansas-born model Lindsey Wixson. Her strange Betty Boop look with her ‘bee-stung lips’ and gapped front teeth is undeniably hypnotic and infectious.
Starting her modeling career at only 15 years old she has become modelling’s biggest rising star and has campaigned for the biggest fashion houses including John Galliano, Versace Vanitas, Miu Miu, Jill Stuart and Alexander McQueen.
Her most recent spread for British Vogue shot by Terry Richardson.
In summer you want to wear loose fitting clothes to cool you down. Drop-waist dresses have a sweet, romanticist feel to them and are so, so breezy!
It seems as though bright, colorful crystals have positively charmed their way into people’s hearts with it’s fun personality.
Doesn’t the first photo remind you of Clueless! What were they callled…?

Check out my past post of Miroslava Duma wearing one of Tom Binns‘ creations.
I L.O.V.E this shot! The dynamic duo have so much charisma they look like they’ve popped straight out of a movie.
Notice the guy carrying the camo case. He’s got taste. xx

I’m not a huge fan of lipgloss because I find it a bit ‘gluggy’ but these ones from STYLENANDA are smooth and light. My favorite pick for the summer would be the first one in neon pink!
Which one’s your favorite?
