Hi guys, 

After a very busy, turbulent weekend and start of the week I lost a huge part of my inspiration for Sarandipity. It happens sometimes, it’s shitty but hey, got to keep moving forward! ๐Ÿ˜‰ When I lose my inspiration it’s hard for me, because I tend to make a huge drama out of the situation haha. I just value my inspiration so much since this blog and the things it brought me is one of the most important things in my life lately…

So since I need to regain my dose of inspiration to be able to inspire you guys I thought, why not share my sources of inspiration with you guys?! While I am sitting on the floor with a lot of fashion magazines around me and watching fashion documentaries, you can read about some of my inspirational sources! ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Of course I have more places and items which inspire me but in the collage above you can see some of the most important ones for me. I think by reading other blogs you can find lovely inspiration for your own looks, your own blog, items you would really love to buy and much more. Even seeing how successful girls like Chiara Ferragni are makes me want to work hard to fulfill my own dreams, so reading other blogs is also motivational for me! Besides blogs my other main source of inspiration are the fashion magazines and their online websites.  Other sources of inspiration for me are photography, I love different forms of art but visual art gives me the most inspiration, beautifully shot adverts or editorials and the latest collections! I think I could go on and on about my sources of inspiration but of course I would also love to know where you get your inspiration? So let me know in a comment! 

Have a lovely day and don’t forget to join my giveaways! International giveaway & NL & BE winactie

Overigens blog ik al langer dan een jaar en heb ik meerdere keren een poging gewaagd voor een succesvol blog maar januari 2012 maakte ik de doorstart van Sarandipity en ben het vanaf toen ook echt serieus gaan nemen.

Let’s wear a hat – Outfit post

Hi sweet followers,

Today I am off to Amsterdam, again, to shoot some outfits with the amazing Virgit from Preppy Fashionist and Iris from A dash of Fash! I think I am going to have a lot of fun today, I am actually sure of it, but for now let me show you my last outfit from the three shoots I did last weekend. These outfit pictures are made by Wendy and I love how they turned out! Wendy likes her photos very light and I like mine very natural colored and vivid, which is totally the opposite, but wow these pictures are just perfect! Thanks so much Wendy for these pictures… <3 

I was in a very feminine mood last weekend, maybe you have noticed I am wearing way more skirts and dresses lately and today’s look is also very feminine. For this outfit I asked Wendy if I could borrow her hat, I never wore a hat before, but with this outfit my guess was that it would work out lovely. And it did! 


So what am I wearing in these photos? I am wearing my lovely warm furry coat from SuperTrash (available HERE), my Maison Scotch jumper with lots of glitter and paillettes, a very basic H&M skirt, my H&M boots (I seem to wear them all the time on photos haha) and Wendy’s hat. 

Personally I really like these photos and this look but of course I am very curious to find out what you guys think! You can let me know in a comment, as usual! ๐Ÿ™‚

Ciao lovelies, xoxo Saranda

Event: Fresh Communications blogger event

press event fashion blog sarandipity styling contest fornarina dress la liek bag teal casio sheen dutch fashionblogger amsterdam fresh communications heels watch bag

Hi lovely followers,

How are you all doing? I am doing pretty great, my week has been super busy so far! On wednesday I went to Amsterdam for the ilovefashionbloggers New Years drink and I shot some outfit photos with the lovely Nathalie. Yesterday I finally started my course in Fashion Journalism! But first I went to Fresh Communications in the World Fashion Centre in Amsterdam since they hosted a fashion bloggers event. I was way early since my course started at the time the event started but the lovely people from Fresh Communications were so kind to let me stop by and even join their styling contest!! Very cool ๐Ÿ˜€ 

For the styling contest we had to style a look with some of our favorite items from their showroom full of awesome brands. I really love love loved the bags from La Liek, but the teal colored one was definitely my favorite. Immediatly I had some ideas in my mind and I must say with the different brands I made a look which I would definitely wear during the spring / summer. ๐Ÿ™‚ 

I am wearing a black dress with lace details from Fornarina, heels from Fornarina, cardigan from Comma, bag from La Liek and the watch is from the Casio Sheen collection. I don’t really have a favorite item in this look since I love every single item so much, the fashion pieces are all just gorgeous! 

Thanks Fresh for the nice meeting! 

What do you guys think of my look? Please let me know in a comment and if you love it please like my Instagram pictures as well: Photo 1 & Photo 2 

Ciao!!
