It Girl: Hanneli Mustaparta

Are you following Hanneli Mustaparta’s self-titled blog? I wasn’t. In fact, I didn’t even know who she was until I spotted her fresh face on WHO WHAT WEAR last week. “Who IS that girl?” I thought to myself. A quick Google search, and I had stumbled upon one of the most gorgeous street style and inspiration blogs I’ve come across in a while. But apparently, I’m waaaay behind the times (like, embarrassingly so), because Hanneli is hot. In more ways than one!

Hanneli is a blogger, photographer, and of course, model. She contributes to Vogue every now and again. And she has style. Oodles of it. And it’s attainable. I’m loving seeing how she mixes fairly basic pieces throughout the seasons:

Click through to see even more Hanneli fabulousness…and a familiar surprise I came across on her blog (Austin friends, this may interest you):

This last photo is definitely not Hanneli. No, this is a girl I went to high school with. I almost fell over when I was scrolling through her blog and saw it. Hanneli takes amazing street style photos, and I couldn’t believe what a small world it was that she would be roaming Manhattan and just happen to take a photo of the girl who sat across from me in junior year AP English. When blog life and real life collides!

ANYWAY. Aren’t you so hooked? It was basically an immediate ‘subscribe’ for me.

    Wow… I had not heard of Hanneli either. She is SO pretty. My favorite look above is the burgundy pants + mustard sweater… great combo.

    Wow – not only is she drop-dead-gorgeous but she has incredible style! And I love how she takes all her own photos! That is truly impressive (I can barely set-up my tri-pod correctly!)
    Thanks for introducing her to those of us who were clueless as well!

    Love her laid-back hair and makeup! She just seems so comfortable in her skin and doesn’t try too too hard with the clothes either… Basically, she’s perfect

    good lord, I love her! She looks like a J.Crew ad (which somewhat embarrassingly, is what I aspire to!) LOVE!

    Yes! I pinned a few of her outfits and didn’t know she was a blogger until somewhat recently too. We’re like so in the know now. :)

    I’m going to join you in embarrassingly admitting that I did not know of Hanneli either. Now I’m thrilled you pointed her out. She does have killer style and you selected just the right images to tease us over to her site. Well played.

    I adore this girl! I met her blog one year before because my friend told me that we share an air (no way! but she’s my friend and loves me so much). And I found her beauty so special, natural and out of time…Gorgeous!
    And, yes, the blog world is round too! and so smal…
    kisses from Barcelona!
