Bookshelf Styling


I moved into my place about three months ago, but it’s just now starting to actually feel like home. I’m still constantly moving things around and have knick knacks scattered around but it is starting to feel a bit more put together. In one corner of my bedroom, I have a long standing bookshelf and though it does add more depth to the room with its height, it doesn’t have much space to put things in. Originally, I’d wanted this type of bookshelf:

I saw the one I currently have in an estate sale for $8 (?!) and couldn’t pass it up. After cleaning it, it seems to do the job fine and I’m glad I could add more than just books, though I don’t think I’m quite done styling it yet. It’s been an evolving process so far.IMG_8438IMG_8428 IMG_8431IMG_8421


Around the World Inspired Outfits

Style can be universal. Great outfits can be spotted around the world, and many with similar tastes. This segment is meant to admire those great fashion gurus that live in different parts of the globe that would be worthy of any “street style” candid photo. I’ve researched a little bit more about trending or classic styles that are popular in the featured country, though like I stated before, these styles can be pulled off anywhere. First on the list is Kristin Sundberg who runs by Kiki from Gävle, Sweden.

Classic minimalism is what you’ll find as a result in most searches of Swedish style. Little pops of texture give Kristin’s outfit some character, like the lace detail peeking from under her cream sweater, or the coat being sported on one arm. All around, it’s a balanced look that’s rooted within the Swedish locale. I was inspired by this outfit and found reasonably priced similar pieces from a variety of online shops, all linked above (bonus: the jeans, coat, and shoes are all on sale for under $25!).
