Blogger of the Moment: Columbine Smille
The absolutely beautiful Swedish blogger, model and stylist for Style by (Elin Kling’s magazine) Columbine Smille is not just WD’s blog of the moment but also one of my fashion muses!
Smille has the ability to effortlessly style her outfits with a mixture of designer pieces, high street fashion and vintage finds. Her laid-back, ‘model off duty’ style is gorgeous and truly inspirational.
It is clear that the foundation of an amazing outfit is the simple, classic pieces; essentials like boyfriend jeans, plain tees, chunky knits, coats, layering and gorgeous accessories!
“My Grandma has always had a strong impact on me. She’s the type of lady that walks around the house wearing leopard printed blouses, caftans and golden heels. I’m inspired by strong women who have the ability to transform their visions into reality and possess the sort of confidence that shines through and creates an aura around them”
I never leave my house without… “My watch, multiple bracelets and necklaces from Stephanie Radenac and Maria Nidotter. I can’t leave without accessories!!”
“I love mixing bold prints and colours and playing with contrasts; the contrast is what makes the outfit interesting. Also, I’m all for layering, but in a feminine sort of way. Just because you don’t show that much skin doesn’t mean that it’s not sexy. For me that’s way more confident.”
