Street Smart (See Jane Gawk)

I love looking at what everyday people wear when doing everyday things.  We all know that editorial spreads are beautiful and provide some much needed inspiration into our humdrum lives, but sometimes it's hard to remember that it's purely for fantasy and that it is make-believe.

Enter: street style.  A phenomenon made popular by The Sartorialist, Scott Schuman, it seems that everybody is trying to capitalize on the simplest of concepts--taking photos of what people wear in their daily lives.  I can easily say that street style inspires me more than what I see in magazines.  I've even been snapped myself (please note that I look like a hot mess...it's shameful) by StyleCaster.

 Stockholm


Paris


Vancouver



Chicago 




Do you take heed of other people's outfits on the street?

Stockholm looks most comfortable/stylish, Vancouver is probably closest to what you'd see around where I live, I live in SW MO we are so behind the times when it comes to fashion!

This post makes me want to go shopping!!! These women look fantastic.

People watching is my all time favorite thing to do in cities. I can sit and watch what people are wearing for hours!

Have a great weekend!
