Culture Girl - A Creative Editorial

The mix of patterns, color and cultural background makes this one here a very special editorial. A combination of vintage elements together with exotic prints makes me feel like an original culture girl. The scenery creates a rich historical mood and I can immediately imagine myself wandering through the streets of New Orleans. Details like the chalk painted door, wooden shutters and stone tiles make the illusion complete. The city itself is reason for an explosion of inspiration, and an ideal mix of ethnical components. It is surrounded by old, colorblocked buildings, where an unexpected encounter with a soulful rhythm and blues band can occur.

As for my outfit, the combination of vivid reds with blue creates a synchronized effect that holds each separate theme together. I simply enjoy how the colors pop against eachother. 
Midi pencil skirts can very quickly swallow your figure because of their length. The color-block wedges add the right amount of height without making it look too overdressed. Did I mention my surprise face when I saw this cute african printed bra-top at Zara? I was positively amused to see them step away from clean and minimalistic pieces and embrace cultural variety.
