Orange you glad I didnt say Banana



When days have lists as long as Santa's, simple outfits are a must. My style is usually pretty girly so it was fun to do a simple more masculine outfit.
Its really something to notice how your own style is influenced by the place your in and the people around you. One of the biggest things I always notice when Im living in Copenhagen is how the womens style seems to have a different mentality. (Not to mention how men here also really know how to dress!) The idea of beautiful or feminine has less to do with exposure but rather creativity or uniqueness. The range of acceptable styles is so much greater. You can fully embody a style without feeling like you are loosing your femininity- say head to toe mens wear. Its very liberating.
