Happy sunday lovely followers!


Today’s sunday trend report is all about a daring trend, fierce, sexy and above all feminine and romantic. But so far I have not participated this trend, simply because it is very daring! By layering this statement item, the slip dress, with a knitted sweater almost everyone can pull of this trend! Match a dark (black or navy) slip dress with a soft colored knitted sweater, for example white, cream or a pastel color. Or vice versa you can match a white slip dress with a more darker knit (not sure I would go for a white / cream slip dress though… )

You can also pull of the slip dress by styling it with more grungy items (like a boucle or leather biker jacket) or a very sophisticated look with a long pastel colored coat! 

Above all I think you should try to style the slip dress in a way that you cover up other parts of your body. Either you show some cleavage OR you show some legs, not both. And I guess with the slip dress trend I would rather like to show my legs! For me wearing the slip dress with a knitted item like a sweater or a huge fluffy cardigan is the way to go! 

Maybe you’ll even see me wearing this trend soon! ๐Ÿ˜‰ 
Have a nice day everyone!! xo Saranda

Insta-throwback November

03-12-’13


Good morning, you all survived Monday haha. At the moment I am working really hard on my inspirational problems, you may have noticed my lag of blogging… Maybe I suffer from ‘winter depression’? I don’t know, I hope not! 

But heck, it’s December already! While growing older every year I feel like time is flying by. I can still remember 2011 NYE as if it was only a couple of months away. Well this last month flew by as well. I have been mostly busy with getting a job, have been to a couple bloggers and PR events and I have actually been to a talent day / audition for a Dutch television and radio network.. Wow! 

So today I will look back to November with you guys by showing you my Instagram feed from last month!   Hope you’ll like it and if you do, don’t forget to follow me! ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a lovely day, ciao!!

Oversized cardigan – Outfit post

Hi everyone,

After some bad blogging last week I want to start this week fresh. I already have everything planned inside my head and I really have some cool blogposts coming up this week, so keep checking out Sarandipity regularly! ๐Ÿ˜‰ For today I want to show you this look which I was wearing to my boyfriends family last weekend. 

I went for a comfy look with my new oversized and manly cardigan. I really like how the cardigan also looks a bit manly and has a formal collar. By wearing a grey tee with fringes and some lace I made the look a bit more feminine and also the heels and jewelry give this look just the right ammount of femininity it needs. Since the look has mostly basic colors like black and grey I decided that wearing a cobalt blue jeans would totally give the look the perfect pop of color! 

What I wore: Oversized cardigan Primark, T-shirt H&M, Cobalt blue jeans Pieces, Heels H&M, Necklace Guess, Bracelet OPS! Objects, Rings Primark, Watch Fossil

Let me know what YOU think of this look in a comment! And don’t forget to follow me on Instagram, Facebook & Twitter to stay up to date at all times! 

Ciao!!

Trend report: Winter wonderland

24-11-’13
Winter wonderland fashion style inspiration trends trend report sarandipity fashionblog fashionblogger shopping polyvore

Good afternoon everyone!

It’s sunday so time for another trend report and this time it’s all about the color white! Winter white or winter wonderland to be precise, according to Glamour.com one of the most wearable trends this season. But…. white colors in the winter, not a lot of people wear it, probably because it is quite risky when it’s raining or when it has rained. Because white just does get dirty very quick and easy. Simple as that. But it is a very pretty color if you wear it the right way!

For example you can combine something white with black (like some of the examples above) or you can combine some white items with a colorful top or nude / brown colors. You can also combine a white top with a jeans or an all white outfit with a denim jacket / blouse. So there are a lot of possibilities how to wear white! For me a white coat would be just perfect! 

How would you wear the winter white / winter wonderland trend? Let me know in a comment and don’t forget to join my giveaway!
