Cool mama in Copenhagen

Speaking of street style, I was just browsing Yvan Rodic's Facehunter blog (he shoots for Coolhunter, another style blog), and had to post this shot. This is a perfect example of what I mean by "real messy people" - because they are so much more inspiring than staged models on a photo shoot. This rad mom appears to have made no compromises to her own personal style and self-expression, simply because she has a baby. I love that. (It should also be noted that whenever a street style blogger comes to Copenhagen, they always come away with killer shots like these. There must be a funky-fresh chemical circulating in the water up there.)

It's also funny, because I've been seriously joking about moving to Scandinavia lately due to their more progressive health care and overall female-friendly systems there (i.e. Sweden offers 12 months maternity leave and subsidized day care - two things which would make the whole stay-home-or-stay-at-work dilemma for new moms much easier in the U.S.). This shot is only convincing me further...
