Today I am talking about denim, essential items from denim which everyone should have. For example the denim jacket! Not without a reason I say that Denim is the new black! Denim is timeless as I have learned at the #DenimtheNewIcons event in the designer outlet Roermond!
In this outfit I am wearing my personalized Pepe Jeans jacket which I won in a contest from Fashiolista! I really love how it states my blog name: Sarandipity and symbolises my personality, the things I am working on or the things I am looking to add more of in my current life.
The koi fish represents strength, the power of perseverance, luck and the power to fight setbacks. The lotus flower is a very important flower within the Buddhist and Hindu religions/cultures. To me this special flower, which grows from the mud to the surface, stands for purity, spiritual awakening, growth and faith or faithfulness.
With the focus on this special denim item I tried to keep the rest of my look more clean, black. While denim is the new black, we should not forget that black is still a perfect color for a clean and basic look. Black should never be underestimated and the same goes for denim!
My full look consists out of my Pepe Jeans denim jacket (Thanks to Fashiolista!), H&M tanktop, H&M pantalon, DUO leatherboots, MARMA Sunglasses, BL’QE Geneve bracelets and IKKI watch.
Let me know what you think of my look in a comment!
Yesterday evening I went to one hell of a party in my former ‘hometown’ Rotterdam. Tomorrow morning at 10AM the biggest H&M of Europe is opening in the ‘koopgoot’ and yesterday we had a very big VIP press preview together with a lot of BN’ers, fashion addicts, bloggers and H&M lovers!
With blogger babe Britt I went to Rotterdam earlier to do some outfit shooting and to check out the new Markthal in the city (which is huge and super pretty!). Around 19:30 we went to the huge flagship store and immediately I was amazed by the size of the flagship store. WOW, it was just incredibly big haha.
You can check out some of the photos that have been shared with the #HMLovesRotterdam hashtag from employees to bloggers like Joyce from JustLikeSushi, RotterdamStreetstyle_official, Irene van Guin and Laura Boogers from thenewgirlintown! Including our (me, AnneSolveig & Dagmars) super cool wristbands on the middle photo on the right hihi.
Since the event was so much fun I forgot to make a lot of pictures myself haha so I borrowed some pictures from other bloggers (with permission of course) and from H&M itself!
Check out some more photos and let me know what you think! For me it was pretty clear that H&M really loves Rotterdam hihi <3

Gisele Bündchen and hottie Michiel Huisman in a movie for Chanel N°5… The one that I want. Personally I am madly in love with the last shots of this shortfilm but everything is just perfect. From the beginning until the end, both Gisele and Michiel nailed it. And Baz Luhrmann did a great job as well. I have been in love with his movies ever since Moulin Rouge! The great Gatsby was an amazing film as well and now this shortfilm for Chanel is killing it. The classy, glamorous vibe in his videos is lovely and I think makes every woman want to play a part in his movies haha.
What do you think of this gorgeous little movie??
Come stai, how are you all doing? Todays blogpost does not need any words if you ask me! During my three weeks in Italy I got the opportunity to go to Milan Fashion Week and besides visiting some shows I also shot a lot of different photos of fabulous looking people with amazing outfits.
Shooting these photos was a lovely experience, it was so cool to be standing there between all the magazine photographers and to make pretty pictures of bloggers and editors!
For a first try at streetstyle photography I think the photos turned out pretty good but I definitely need some more practice haha… Maybe next season?! We will see haha.
Enjoy these pictures and let me know what you think! Which look or detail do you like best?

Today I want to show you a new outfit and talk a bit of how I am feeling lately… I am happy and everything is going pretty well I guess, except for the fact that I lack energy. I am procrastinating my work for my blog while I actually enjoy it so much! Maybe it is because I just need to get back into my regular blog schedule (3 outfits a week and so on) or maybe it is something different… I am quiet busy with working at H&M, thinking about starting my company and worry about what the future will bring me.
I have a lot of different ambitions and one of them is to build my blog into something more. Besides that I still want to get my masters degree, in something that I really really like to do (fashion communication and media or something) and I really would like to have a longer abroad experience (Italy got me and stole my heart, but I think that is pretty much clear for everyone of you reading my blog haha).
As I am a huge worrier and sensitive person I decided to try to not bottle up anymore (niks meer opcroppen ;)) From now on I am trying to change my mentality, to look more to the bright and positive side and just make the best out of it… And besides that hopefully saving up money quickly to go abroad for a year! I am trying to let go and lose my pessimistic views some more. Let’s see what’s in the cards for me!
With this outfit I try to reassemble my feeling of bottling up (in Dutch it’s called opkroppen) by wearing a pastel pink satin cropped top and a jacket that is opened, loosely hanging over my shoulders to protect me from the wind but open for new views and opportunities.
I am wearing: Jacket from Mango, Top and bottom from Boohoo.com, Boots from Invito (borrowed from Britt because I loved how they made this look a little bit more raw) and my current regular jewelry.
Let me know what you think of this outfit and if you have any tips to let go a bit more just leave them in the comments!
