State of mind: Maiken Winther

Every week, Filippa K Circle invites inspiring people to share their current mindsets. This week stylist Maiken Winther shares her thoughts.

My state of mind: I impatiently await spring.

I feel the most balanced when: When I run three times a week, go to yoga, eat healthy and sleep at least eight hours. When I don’t I can tell the difference immediately.

In relation to fashion, I have learned not to: Chase trends. Create a signature look at stick to that. Choose quality over quantity. The perfect basic wardrobe can get you a long way.

My best DIY tip for making every day more sustainable: Cut down on meat. I’ve been watching a tons of ‘food’ documentaries lately like ‘Forks Over Knives’, ‘Cowspiracy’ and ‘Food Matters’ and they really made an impact on me. I think cutting down on meat and adding more greens can really make a difference.

I cannot live without: My loved ones.

I’m currently reading: ‘A Little Life’ by Hanya Yanagihara for the second time. I can honestly say that it’s the best book I have ever read. I’m forcing it on people actually ha ha.

My eco-fashion prediction: Overconsumption is not smart anymore  – let’s hope that continues and that more get the memo.

My favorite organic/natural beauty product: I have a lot of faves, but I never run out of  Weleda’s Skin Food.

My forever favorite piece of clothing: Cashmere sweaters. Preferably in navy. Soft, warm and they go with everything and last through seasons if you take good care of them.

This is priceless to me: Time.
