Why I started to blog about 5 years ago? Well simply to share my style. People kept on asking where I got all my stuff, how I came up with certain combo’s, telling me they wished they had my guts to dress just the way you feel, etc. So when Zalando asked me to be a part of the #shareyourstyle campaign, I dove right in! The challenge? Pick a piece that represents your style, share it with your readers to inspire them and give one of them the chance to win this piece to style in their very own way.
Before we head over to the giveaway details, I would like tot talk to you about “sharing” “your style”. I would like to make a call to action to all of you out there, staring into the mirror every morning, wanting to throw something crazy on, but deciding to play it safe just before you head out the door. Stop doing that to yourself! You don’t want to look like everybody else, you should be dressing like yourself. Even if this means that there will be some people who don’t understand your style, or you will get less “likes” on your “Look Of The Day”. In the end you’re only fooling yourself. Be who you are and don’t be afraid to share it! And when you see someone sharing something you like, don’t forget to let them know, one way or the other, digital or in real life.
As the ever so talented style guru Iris Apfel says: “Fashion you can buy, but style you possess. The key to style is learning who you are, which takes years. There’s no how-to road map to style. It’s about self-expression and, above all, attitude.”
So let’s say “NO!” to all the fashion clones and wear whatever the hell you feel like. Let fashion inspire you to try new things, not dictate you on how to look or feel. With that said, let’s get down to business on how to win this fabulous J.Lindeberg sweater and style it in your very own way.
I chose this J.Lindeberg boys club sweater because I love how it has been derived from a sports context, a male one on top of that, and how I felt inspired to combine it in a very feminine and graphic way, completely out of context, just the way I like it. Want to WIN this sweater?
