Meet Anja, the 15-year-old style blogger from Germany who has cool girl in her blood. Her love of fashion began with Disney princess dresses, and has morphed into a punky style consisting of graphic tees, mom jeans and buckle belts.
Anja fell in love with fashion for its ability to boost her self-confidence, and even though she shares outfit photos on the 'gram regularly, she doesn't take herself too seriously. Heck, her photoshoots only take 5-10 minutes! Besides wanting to steal every outfit of hers, we also think we want to be BFFs.

1. What's the one moment that made you obsessed with style?
"When I was a little kid I always wanted to be a princess, so I begged my mum to take me to the "Disney Shop" to get me cute dresses! Ever since, I was obsessed with fashion. When I was 11 I realized that by having a nice style you can boost your confidence. So now I spend at least 20 minutes every day in front of my wardrobe."
"I love mom jeans and graphic shirts so much! But I also enjoy making myself look cute by wearing a dress or a skirt. Honestly, I don't care if my clothes are from Adidas, Tommy Hilfiger or the thrift store as long as I love what I'm wearing and it's affordable. Usually I get my inspiration from Instagram posts or from people who I see in public, like when I take the bus to school."
"My mum is always the one who takes pictures of me. A photoshoot usually takes between 5-10 minutes. But if I don't feel 100% comfortable with what I'm wearing or with the way I look, a photoshoot can last until my mum has no more nerves left and wants to go home. [laughs]"
4. What's your go-to outfit when you're in a rush?
"When I'm in a rush, I tend to just grab some mom-jeans, a graphic t-shirt and some colorful socks. I round things up with a belt, a star necklace and two bracelets, and I pair my outfit with my black slip-on Vans and a puffer jacket."
"The best advice I've been given was from my mum. She said that overthinking everything just makes things worse. I should accept failure and just move on. Life would be boring if everything is perfect, right?"
"My favorite clothing item is my graphic T-shirt 'Chill Since 1993' that has a dinosaur on a motorcycle on it from Brandy Melville."
7. What's one thing you want everyone to know about you?
"That I'm a very open minded person. Sometimes I'm afraid of getting judged by people when I tell them something personal about me. Therefore, I want to make sure everyone knows that you can talk to me about anything!"
"Consistency is very important. Try to post as often as you can because once you stop posting for a few weeks people will start losing interest in you. Also be sure to connect with your followers by asking them questions or for advice."
"In the morning, I wash my face and put on moisturizer from my local pharmacy (they mix it themselves) on my face. At night, I wash all my makeup off with a cleansing milk from L'Oréal. Then I rub my face with the anti-pimple cleansing gel from Garnier, and then I use the Relaxing Night Cream moisturizer from Bebe."
10. What is your go-to makeup look? (Include brands! too!)
"For my makeup, I do my eyebrows with a brow pencil from Isadora, and my eyelashes with mascara from 4ever Young. If I feel a little extra I might go for some highlight from the Marvycorn palette by BH Cosmetics."
