Turquoise waters – Outfit post

fashion-outfit-ootd-blogger-firenze-arno-turquoise waters-acqua-river-nature-moda-sarandipity5

Buongiorno!

When you are reading this I probably am already of to work! Working at H&M is a lot of fun and I am really happy that I have this job besides my blog :) Today I am showing you my second Firenze look with a lot of turquoise , turqoise is my favorite gemstone and one of my all time favorite colors (next to pastels like pink and mint hihi). With this Turquoise waters outfit post I want to show you how I try to add my favorite gem into my daily accessories and wardrobe!

I know it’s a summery look but hey in Firenze the weather is still pretty good and although it rains a lot here in holland (oh how I wish those raindrops looked more like these turquoise waters ;)) the temperature is still pretty good!

When we (me and my lovely photographers Diego & Shawn, miss you guys!) were shooting this look I wanted to get creative. Show some nature and feeling. I felt so free in Firenze, free of all the stress from my daily life. Wearing my favorite color and gemstone in a lot of different items from this look made me really happy as well. It was the perfect look to share you my emotional state when I was in the magnificent city of Firenze. Shooting this outfit on / in the Arno river made it all perfect. The setting, my mood, my outfit, the turquoise waters and blueish-green colors surrounding me, it connected… Well at least it did in my eyes!

And so I can not wait to find out what YOUR opinion is about this look? Do you get the same free feeling? Besides that I am also wandering what your favorite gemstone is… So let me know in a comment!

I am wearing sunglasses from VANS; necklace by Karma Mantra; top by H&M; shorts from ASOS; bracelet from Noosa Amsterdam.

Have a lovely day ragazzi!

Baci,
Saranda

Wednesday’s Pinspiration #13

fashion-pinterest-inspiration-streestyle-bags-purses

Ciao ragazzi,

It’s time for a new Wednesday’s Pinspiration which today is all about amazing streetstyle bags! I spotted some amazing ones in Milano which I will share with you later but on Pinterest I found some gorgeous pictures as well!

As I believe in accessorizing and the fact that one accessory can transform a simple look into something gorgeous I just had to share these inspirational looks! My favorite bags are the Chanel Matruschka purse and the white Rocco bag from Alexander Wang! The first one is just gorgeous and a huge eye catcher, while the second one has tiny special details. The second one would probably look gorgeous with almost every outfit…

I am wondering though, how much is a designer bag truly worth? I never really fell for brand names, but now I notice how I adore some fashion houses and their particular style. For example I used to totally have nothing with Gucci, still I am no fan of big logo advertising on your bags / wallet / clothes… But after visiting their museum in Firenze and learning more about the history of the brand I now understand why a certain brand can be attractive. Lucky me, or not really, I can’t afford my favorite Gucci bag just yet. So I came home with only a Gucci paper shopping bag and some Gucci sugar haha.

Tell me, what is your favorite bag of the collage above? And how about your all time favorite designer bag / must have bag to spice up an everyday look?

Let me know in a comment!

On the edge – Outfit post

Buongiorno ragazzi!

This early morning I would like to show you the first outfit of my Firenze OOTD shoot with my fellow Italian students Diego & Shawn! Normally I make my photos with my boyfriend or with blogger babe Britt from Brittamaxime.com but as both of them were not with me in Firenze I needed to find someone else! Lucky for me I found these great guys that made some really gorgeous photos! Let me tell you a bit more about this on the edge – outfit post…

We shot this look at a bridge and I actually did some risky stuff like holding my shark tooth Fashionology necklace over the rail of the bridge crossing the Arno river. I also looked down a couple of times with the big risk of loosing my sunglasses. Thankfully none of this happend and I still have all my precious items hihi.

This look actually was one of my favorites during my adventures in Italy. It is super comfy thanks to my Nikes and cute & feminine because of the skirt and the sunglasses! A casual sporty chic look great for a night dancing or going out for drinks!

So what am I wearing?
From head to toe: Sunglasses by Andy Wolf thanks to bckspace eyewear, Pearl earrings by Zara, Shark tooth necklace by Fashionology, Basic tank from H&M, Skirt from Zara and Nike Airmax LE sneakers.

As usual I would love to hear your opinion on this look so let me know in a comment :)

Baci,
Saranda

Ciao tutti!

Last week I was in Milano to end my Italian adventures with a huge dosis of fashion by going on the streets during Milan Fashion Week.

Most of the time I was spotting and shooting gorgeous streetstyle but I also attended some nice shows!! More about that later in a special Milan Fashion Week report! :D

Today I want to start with sharing some of my favorite looks per show with you all. As you might now I started of writing about a lot of different fashion shows and I love to do that again sometimes, especially for the Milan Fashion Weeks because I just adore Italian fashion!

When the Gucci show was going on inside this super pretty building I was outfit making street style photos and checking out famous bloggers and some celebs! Anna Wintour rushed her way through the crowd while Kate Moss arrived a bit later. A couple minutes later, I was about to take of because the biggest part of the crowd started dissolving, I almost bumped into Bryanboy and I went on a photo with the gorgeous Chiara Ferragni from the Blonde Salad.
