Street Beat: Pensare Ancore – Preppy Bohemian Style

Preppy Bohemian Style

We think it’s pretty obvious why blogger Caroline Dengel is our muse this week: she has the uncanny ability to channel fashion icons from every era without looking the least bit dated. Borrowing the best from each decade she has a look that is uniquely her own. We were particularly struck by these photos that marry a decidedly bohemian yet preppy style – a pinch of Jane Austen with a dash of Serena Van der Woodsen cooks up a most inspirational dish.

The 17-year-old art and design student from Ohio has big dreams that include a highly-coveted Fashion Director position – we say she has a running head start on Anna Wintour’s post.

She is simply stunning. I wish I'd had that much fashion confidence when I was her age.
