Shall I count the ways?

When I first saw this picture on greek street style blog Streetgeist, I just thought "hey, this is a really cute girl". I kept looking and the more I looked, the more things I liked. So many, I needed bulletpoints. Let me count the ways I love thee...
  • I love her hair. Who said everything has to be in place?
  • I love the fact that she looks so cool, even if she doesn't fall in the conventional "it" girl stereotype of skinny, adolescent and blonde. And doesn't wear killer heels.
  • I love that she really rocks the skinny jeans and manages to make them look comfortable and not restraining. Again, without heels.
  • I love the fact she is already wearing an extra skinny belt, something that is going to be a really huge trend this spring, according to some random UK glossy. Girlfriend is leading trends!
  • I love that said belt could be a piece of black string, for all we know, but it doesn't matter.
  • I love THAT scarf. The colors, the pattern, the corner tassles. And of course, the way she wears it.
  • And finally, I love the fact that said scarf and piece of black string are all it takes to transform a white oversized mens(?) t-shirt into an amazingly stylish top.
Moral of the story?
You don't have to be skinny and rich to be cool and stylish.

That is a great capture. Reminds me of another very similar outfit on Garance Dore awhile back. The tassles on her scarf are my favorite detail.

συμφωνώ απόλυτα. από τις καλύτερες φωτογραφίες που έχω δει. η κοπέλα είναι πανέμορφη και υπερ-στυλάτη χωρίς ιδιαίτερη προσπάθεια. αν αυτό δεν είναι cool τότε τί άλλο μπορεί να είναι???
