I hate when you know you are supposed to like a street style blog because it is really famous but you just cannot get onboard because:
1. the majority of people look completely ridiculous and/or are peacocking. If you’re a fashion editor, go crazy with it, but that’s a bit impractical for the rest of us.
2. you see the same trends over and over again. How many times have you seen the boyfriend jean + statement necklace like the Man Repeller, or the girl with long, slightly disheveled hair wearing a beanie a la Cara Delevingne?
What is to be done, I ask you? Is Garance the only one holding down the fort?
Enter Sandra Hagelstam to save the day with her impeccable taste. (I wrote about her on last month’s Blog Envy) My go to girl for inspiration has a new street style blog called The Neighborhood Watch.
Do not get me wrong, there are trends going on (looking at you Coachella), but more often than other blogs, you see gems like this…
So. much. minimalism. My heart is aflutter.
One of the reasons that I have not posted many outfits is because I am searching for a new style that’s minimal and classic but with an edgy twist. I also have not gone shopping since December and I don’t care two bits about it. Now, I have a clearer vision of what I want to go for.
I’m really excited to see how the aesthetic of the site evolves as Sandra gets more images.
If you dig it too, head on over to The Neighborhood Watch.
