Take me to the Louvre – Outfit post

Louvre Outfit ootd fashion blogger SarandaAdriana paris dutch blog style zara imyf asos furla4

Ciao loves,

With lots of rain falling out of the skies during my time in Paris I was a bit sad as I really wanted to share at least one of my three outfits with you all. Well luckily when we got out of the Louvre the weather was not too bad, it was quiet dry for a few minutes – after shooting for I think 5 minutes it literally started pouring down -.- …

Last month I had a bit of an online and offline shopping spree and I found so many gorgeous items! Two of them being the top and skirt that I am wearing in this outfit. I am madly in love with these ZARA items as the fabric seems to be from a really high quality! Besides that I really love the fit and the pieces are really easy to mix and match with different styles as well!

So I threw the items in my suitcase and brought them with me for my trip to Paris, which I have told you about yersterday! I really wanted to wear this outfit in Paris as for me personally it felt a bit Parissian as well. Not too complicated, three tones and perfectly in balance and harmony. How the French women seem to like it from what I have seen in Paris and from what I have read about the classic French style.  And so we shot this look in front of the Louvre Pyramid… What do you think of my ‘Take me to the Louvre outfit’? Let me hear your thoughts and opinion.

In this look I am wearing my current favorite scarf from I’ll Make You Famous, top and skirt from ZARA, tights unknown, bag FURLA via Designer Outlet Roermond* and my, still favorite, ASOS chelsea boots!

We are made of stories – MFW Outfit

we are made of stories mfw outfit ootd dutch fashion blogger sarandaadriana5

Ciao dearies,

Oh my dearies I have been back from Milano for more than one week and so far I have not yet found the time to blog about it. But within this week I’ll share most of my Milan Fashion Week stories with you! First up, one of my MFW outfits!

Just like last year it was such an amazing adventure to be in Milano during fashion week! Last year it was partially a happy coincidence and I did not prepare myself at all for the madness. But this year I did a lot of planning to be honest! And of course, a lot of things didn’t go according to my planning – which has absolutely nothing to do with the Italian lifestyle 😉 – but still I managed and I saw a lot of shows, shot cool street style just like last year and I actually got photographed myself as well! How cool is that?!

Today I am showing you my most relaxing and casual outfit during Milan Fashion Week. Running around from show to show 4 days in a row is a lot, trust me, and therefore sometimes a relaxed outfit comes as a blessing!

I really love the simplicity of this look. A high-waist shorts, tee, bomberjacket, sunglasses, bag and sneakers. But what I really love the most is how the bomber turned out in combination with the tee and the high-waisted shorts. Comfy, fierce and sexy! Besides this I really feel that the ByDanie tee speaks a lot of truth and matches my Italian adventure too: “We are made of stories” What do you think of this MFW outfit?

Wearing D Brand Bomber (via Are You Swedish)*, ByDanie t-shirt, ASOS embellished shorts, Pauls Boutique limited edition blogger bag*, Nike dunk sneakers and my Andy Wolf sunglasses.

Baci,
Saranda

Denim on Denim – Outfit post

Denim on Denim ourtfit OOTD dutch fashion blogger sarandaadriana nederlandse modeblogger sarandipity1

Ciao dearies,

Today in Holland it’s Liberation day, a day in which we celebrate how we won back our freedom as a country after the second world war. Probably non of my readers have lived through this war but you might have been in contact with other wars or struggles your country has been in. Today I am extra grateful for the freedom given to us by our great-grandparents and everything who fought for freedom during this horrible war. I hope that, who you are, wherever you are, that you are free and that you may enjoy your freedom. That you have freedom of speech, freedom of your thoughts, religion and lifestyle. If you are not, I pray for you to receive the freedom you deserve <3

Now about my look. It’s not rebellious, it has not much to do with freedom except for the freedom to express myself…

A denim on denim outfit this time. A denim jacket with a meaning, my own made up term Sarandipity (Serendipity + Saranda) a koi carp and a lotus flower. The meaning of these symbols together: “Lotus flowers are commonly depicted in tattoos. These flowers grow in a muddy pond but develop into a beautiful flower which is much loved. The lotus is often paired with a koi which can take on a variety of meanings. This tattoo may represent purity, struggle or a change in life. The lotus with the koi may also represent struggle, determination or inevitable success.” Quote

In this outfit I am wearing my personalized denim jacket by Pepe Jeans, a white blouse from H&M with underneath it a blue t-shirt bra from Victoria’s Secret, denim jeans from WE Fashion, bag from VANS and chelsea boots from ASOS.

What do you think of this denim on denim outfit?! Let me know in a comment 🙂

Free as a butterfly – Outfit post

heart-firenze

Ciao ragazzi,

It’s my birthday today, yay! For a special day like this I had a special outfit in mind! Something with a meaning, something which fits the way how I see life at the moment… Above all something that represents what I am working towards, which future I am building, free as a butterfly… 🙂

Shooting this look was so much fun and it was at an amazing location with a view all over the city and the smaller towns around Firenze. I also had two (!) photographers, the lovely Shawn & Diego (thanks guys for everything!) which made me feel like a celebrity haha. People even started making photos of us shooting, especially the Asian tourists. Very funny situation haha, I’m actually surprised I did not feel awkward or anything, it actually was fun, because in Holland I sometimes feel very awkward when people watch your shooting session.

No, in Firenze I felt free! I did not care and I fluttered around the city, trying to see all the sights while relaxing and having the most fun possible. I literally felt like I was free as a butterfly.

This freedom, this feeling was also the setting and feel that I wanted to show you guys in the outfit. I went for a fun, playful playsuit from Liquorish with, yup, butterflies (farfalle in Italiano)! Hence the free as a butterfly titel 😉 I fell in love with this playsuit when I saw it on ASOS, the little details on the back, the kaleidoscope butterfly print, the colors, it just screamed ‘Take me with you to Firenze’ haha. It’s actually one of my favorite summer outfits now (too bad summer is over haha).

I am wearing a playsuit from Liquorish (bought on ASOS.com), sunglasses from VANS, necklace from KarmaMantra, camera / handbag from JoTotes (thanks to my lovely parents), bracelet from Noosa Amsterdam, watch from IKKI and heels from H&M.

Now I am very curious! What do you think of this free as a butterfly OOTD / outfit, the view and also what did you think of this blogpost where I told you more about the feeling (the free as a butterfly feeling) and the idea behind the actual look?

Baci,
Saranda

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
