Style Inspiration: Noora from Skam

 I've spent much of this winter break watching Skam. It's a Norwegian teen drama that takes one season to focus on a character out of the ensemble cast. The description reminded me a lot of Skins, a favorite brit drama of mine in high school, so I made sure to set aside some precious vacation time to watch it. 

I can tell it's a great teen drama because it gives me that familiar feeling in my gut of being a teenager. It's a mixture of boldness, naivety, and insecurity. Though it's not the most positive feeling (I don't think I'm the only one who didn't have a 100% wonderful time in high school), it is true to real life. I think it's one of the hardest things to get across in this genre. On a more positive note, whenever the group of girls support each other it always makes me think of my own friends. 

Fashion wise, there's a lot to take in. Set in Oslo, these kids have some serious style muscles. They make me wish I could change history and tell my younger self what to wear. I'm particularly in awe of their ability to create great sweater/beanie/scarf combos. Definitely something to try out as the temperature continues to drop. 

For this post, I decided to focus on Noora. She's the main character for Season 2 and has a true minimalist style, nearly always paired with a bold lip. Beyond the lipstick, her staple is mom jeans, always with a belt. She pairs them with sweaters, button ups, and mock-necks mainly in soft, cool colors. Though, she does have a great stand out red, roll-neck sweater I would love to have. 

My favorite part is that her pieces were already ones I've had in my closet for awhile. I don't wear this short sleeve sweater too often, but it's a perfect transition top in every season. My Asos chelsea boots are still kicking as well. I had to get the heel redone, but that was only due to me wearing them multiple times a week. They are still super comfortable and one of my favorite shoes to wear. 

Topped off with a belt, a warm scarf and matte, red lip, the outfit is simple yet chic.

Now it's time to watch Season 3!

I use the First Aid Beauty balm for nightly moisture and light exfoliation. If my lips get really bad the Fresh sugar scrub is a quick fix before I wear lipstick. Here I wore the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella
