Subtle Choices

Its my instinct to be drawn to things that are over the top but there is something to be said about understatement. It allows you to concentrate on subtleties and the beauty in simplicity. They way this woman carefully pinned her hair, the wrap of her scarf and the subtle hint of color it provides creates a stunning look.

Ari, I follow your Blog since short time only, but I look forward to each new post! The pictures and descriptions give me feedback in a way that they do encourage me to follow my own path in dressing/styling myself.It is so much fun to do "one's own thing" with textiles, hair and accessoires - I enjoy your Blog tremendously.
Thank you - and kind regards, Martina

A good eye appreciates both simplicity and over the top that are both carefully thought out! Love your blog! Cathy G

Hi Ari!

Yes, she is definitely a style inspiration!!!!! Her glasses, coat, tights and shoes are also superb with the rest of her outfit.

As someone who craves simplicity but usually ends up over the top, I really appreciate this post!

Best, J.

Ah now there! This is the way I would like to go I think. A HINT of cheek. A little taste of so much more but you have to come closer to find out.

I like it.

Oh I do love a good scarf!
And your blog is so novel and refreshing.
I just love the idea of drawing inspiration from those of a previous generation.

Adore it.

She is lovely and the sort of woman I would love to know. I bet she could teach me a thing or two or three. Love the controlled elegance of her "look."

I see so many young bloggers posting photos of themselves wearing their hair like this lady and with similar glasses, going for a sort of nerdy chic. This lady just has a simple sort of elegance about her. And I would love to have that scarf!
