Inspiration: Caroline Blomst

Like many of my favorite fashion bloggers, Caroline Blomst has made style her occupation. She works as the fashion editor of the Swedish website Feber.se, and runs the blog StockholmStreetStyle. She also maintains her own style blog, CarolinesMode, where she posts her fashion inspiration, her own "Wearing Today" pics,  and newly acquired shopping conquests. In addition to blogging, Caroline regularly posts images of her outfits to Chictopia and Lookbook.nu.

It's hard to ignore how pretty Caroline is. She looks like a model straight off of the runway, with barely there makeup, and tousled wavy hair.  Caroline's style is simple, and casual, yet she knows how to make a statement with anything from a pink Balenciaga motorcycle bag to a pair of studded Chuck Taylor's. Her accessories closet alone, would make any fashionista green with envy, myself included. But with Caroline, it's not just about high end designer pieces. She typically pairs items from stores like H&M, Zara, and Asos, with luxury brand bags and shoes. Her innate talent for mixing pieces and setting trends is evident throughout her blog.

When giving out style advice, she says it's best not to read too many fashion blogs, or you'll risk losing your sense of yourself.  In this day and age of global fashion via the internet,  I think she's got a point.  While influenced by some of the season's best designs, Caroline's style is undeniably her own. Below are some of my favorite Summer outfits that she's posted recently:

  2. You know Bren I have to agree w/her on not reading too many fashion blogs or you can lose yourself. What do you think? I limit the amount of fashion blogs I scan daily in order to let my mind think on if/how I can be inspired but at the same time stay true to my own sense of style.

    ps - having an ebelskiver giveaway. post should be up in an hour or so...be sure to stop by!! xoxo-carrie (this pan could also be a useful weapon in the event of break in - you know what this means)

  3. Carrie: I totally agree with limiting any source of inspiration. I feel like it clutters your mind with too much information, that you can become overwhelmed by choice. I could go on about this topic, but this is the short version. :)

    I'll definitely have to check out your giveaway!

    xoxo,
    Bren

  11. Love her style too! I could see where looking at too many fashion blogs could take away someone's individual style. It makes sense.
    Thanks for telling me about the tea house in Pasadena! I will have to check that one out!
