vad en nörd för att använda

Vad skulle en nörd slitage

Works Cited
black pants: gap
embellished top: j crew
sweater: thrifted
mary janes: dankso
bag: liz claiborne


Hej, as they say in Sweden! Today, I kind of wish I could jet off to hang out with this adorable girl I found on Stockholm Street Style, though she might be annoyed that I copied her outfit. I liked the combination of skinny pants, mary-jane-style clogs, and the embellished neutral top she was wearing. So I stole it, wholesale.

Vad skulle en nörd slitage

Just in case you can't speak Swedish (or don't have the mad skills that I possess with Google translator), the title of this post is what my red-headed friend might call this blog...

P.S. Thank you, my sweet actually-Swedish-speaking-not-Google-translating friends for your revisions. I have corrected the title :)

Sidewalk Chalk said...

What a nice bit of inspiration. I love your interpretation, as well as those cool Mary Janes.

Nicola said...

Those trousers really are a good fit for you. I'm jealous, I find it so hard to get trousers that fit just right!

Rebecca said...

I like the trousers on you, and you chose a great look to reproduce.

I LOVE this outfit! I have a confession though, I might want to re-make it as well :] So cute!

Viktoria with a K said...

Justine said...

I love both versions of this outfit! I might just wear it myself sometime in the very near future :)

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. I think you did lovely copying this look. Those pants fit you great by the way. Such a cute length.

I've been waiting for your take on this outfit ever since I saw your tweet about it. You look fantastic!

men hejdå! I love the outfit and I love your blog so I hate to be the word nazi here buut I speak swedish and vad en nörd för att använda (slitage just meeans sort of wear/tear off) would actually be the right way to say it... sorry for being a party pooper! I can't help it =(

swatchcat said...

I love the look of an ankle-strapped shoe with a skinny black crop pant. It looks so sophisticated and retro. Nothing wrong with copying a look, either. As the saying goes, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. :)

Hej,
Jag undrar om du skulle skriva tyska eller svenska ... Men jag antar att jag fick reda okej

Larysse Tavares said...

Dear nerd friend, you look gorgeous today (I can say this everyday). I could picture you two walking on the streets like twins rocking your skinny pants + mary janes, this combo is awesome!

Thanks you for your support yesterday! ASAP I'll send you some news, I have so much to tell you!! Kiss kiss, Lyssa

Breenah said...

I love this, but think your pantalones (I match your Swedish with my Spanish!) need to be an inch or so higher.

upatreecupatea said...

Oh I love this outfit.
So college chic :)
I need to take some pointers from you!

ShoesForDessert said...

The trousers and detailed top you styled are great pieces! I love the inspirational photo.

Julia said...

looooove this style on you. I might have to try to copy (steal?) this one soon...

Healthy and Homemade said...

Love that you copied this look! Super cute ^_^

Frida said...

just in case it would be nice to know, at a later time, in Danish it would be: "Hvad en Nørd ville tage på"

:-D

Miss L said...

Hihi... So cute. But you have written "What would a nerd worn out" :)

Hello World said...

Hahaha! "Slitage" is "wear and tear" in Swedish. "ha på sig" is just "to wear". Lovley outfit, though! /Your greatest fan in Sweden

Destined For Now said...

Very cute. It's a compliment to her style!

Venn said...

What Would a Nerd Wear said...

eek said...

fantastic look - loved seeing your inspiration too :)

have a great weekend!

Rosiecat said...

You pulled off the copycat act very well! It's spot on. Also, it's making me think I need to own some red shoes...

Malicious Mallory said...

This is super cute! Spot on copying :) Love it.

L1L2 said...

like everyone's already said, it's a pretty good copy and you look good! also like your top:)

Ms. Loaf said...

I love this look and the inspiration. I'm so happy to see you wear danskos, too, because I just got that same pair and have been anxious about how to wear them. I have a foot disability that requires me to wear comfortable shoes, but I know many people (like the above commenter) strongly dislike danskos. Lovely to see your fashionable use of them!

What Would a Nerd Wear said...

thanks, ms loaf! i feel the same--love my danksos (and any comfortable shoe, really) and i'm always glad when i see other style bloggers wearing them :)

wearonearth said...

I love this look! You look really good! I liked this look so much, I actually kinda copied it today! Thanks for the inspiration!
