Hello! Today’s post I’ve been very excited about, it’s a collab post with Claire, Palm trees and taxis. She lives in America, Maryland close to the big D.C, she describes where she lives as the suburban country and her wardrobe is referred to as the disorganised treasure chest. Claire has a very original style, Claire doesn’t really look towards fashion icons for style inspiration. (Trust me from her Instagram she doesn’t need to) she upholds the motto “simple is elegant.”
- Fashion wise: big khaki parkas with faux fur on the hood is definitely the way to go. As for the shoes, the people in Maryland typically are really into Doc Martens and combat boots (I’m thinking this May be due to the weather and terrain). The style Claire told me you would see “everyyywherreeee” is black leggings, a chunky sweater, or a casual comfy tee and a flannel or cardigan with it. (Sounds so tumblr, I think I would fit in nicely as I own about 1234875 pairs of leggings). -roughly… It’s funny because I can NEVER find any.
- Make up wise:the Maryland girls like to keep it light and natural basically a really clean look. So they will have light foundation or bb cream to even skin tone, some light blush, light or nude colored eyeshadow, and clean liquid eyeliner (usually with the winged tip style) and then thick bold black eyelashes. With just Chapstick. Some girls are bold with lipstick, like Claire. This is a complete polar opposite to what you’d see in my neck of the woods across the pond, from Claire.
