As a child living in London, Karen would accompany her “mum” to street fairs and vintage markets. Her love of aesthetics and the thrill of a unique find stuck.

Upon moving to NYC, Karen began approaching strangers on the street asking where they scored their particularly cool clothing and accessories which led to the launch of her blog Where Did U Get That. Karen loves eating, people watching, and yes – surprising folks with her unique personal twist on getting dressed. “There’s nothing better than styling something in a different way and being asked ‘Wait, that’s from where?!’”

I like the contrast of different styles depending on where you live. In New York for instance you see a big difference between uptown and downtown styles - it’s like living in two completely different cities.

This men’s Panama hat paired with a favorite, flowy crochet
dress is just the right amount of girly – and perfect for a
day at the beach. These knotted sneakers are comfortable
and stylish, adding an on-trend grey to this neutral,
daytime look. Plus, they slip on and off easily.

Style Tip

These blue sunglasses add a pop of unexpected color
that complements a go-to white t-shirt and denim short
combo for a summer day.

For the perfect pair of comfy denim shorts try hacking
your old worn-in jeans – it’s an iconic American look.

These navy boat shoes are such classics they work with all vintage pieces – especially this
men’s fringe jacket. Don’t be afraid to shop in the men’s section. Their cut is more forgiving
and slouches perfectly on us ladies.

Style Tip

Just because you are going out doesn’t mean you have to wear
heels. For casual chic, I chose a timeless black suit with cropped
trousers to show off these sneakers.

STYLE TIP

For a night out try a bold red lip and accent clutch to
keep it girly in a strong way. I often wear delicate gold
jewelry – so this simple bangle is just enough to take me
from day to night.

STYLE TIP

I like the contrast of a suit with casual shoes – they balance
each other out and give an effortless, breezy feel to being
dressed up.

I don’t take myself too seriously, which allows me to open up to experimenting with my style.
