There is something all together different about people watching on the subway. Its a one of those perfectly unique places where you can comfortably sit in silence in close proximity to others and observe humanity in a relatively unguarded manner. There are those who feel comfortable enough to sleep, those who read, some who perform, others who catch up loudly about last nights escapades with friends or just sit quietly and play Candy Crush. Its one of my favorite places to observe the way people really dress for the weather or occasions just simply dress to get around, to function in everyday life. For reality. We took Lou who was new in town from Germany for a ride up town and back and let her do her thing.

In the crazy fast world we now live in filled with masses of information and images, where everyone is an expert yet few have the patience to learn, it feels like a rare moment when intelligent, young, inspirational people come together to create something truly unique. Space Matters is just that – A collective of creative women led by editors Nike Feldin and Lisa Corneliusson as well as regular contributors like Say Lou Lou, it is a digital “atelier” curated for the reader that explores ideas, art, style, music and creativity in a new interactive and slick yet irreverent interface. They asked me to share my current mood through images. Lets just say I’m day dreaming of one hot long summer. Here.

Nothing says put-together effortless more than a disheveled chignon. One part neat knotted bun, one part “This is how I wear my hair when I am washing my face”. Its the perfect alternative to the “Adult-going-on-toddler” top knot I wish had disappeared before it started. Your new day 3 hair style. You’re welcome.

Highly recommending all of my male friends to pretend they are 14 again and get busy with a safety pin and a lighter (or for safer results, head to their local chemist). Fill your sleepers and barley’s with personal trinkets and found objects for the full Lost Boy effect.
