Dressing up for pressdays – Outfit preview


Ciao dearies,

Right now I am on my way to Amsterdam to visit press agencies again! It is always so weird to be looking at summer collections while winter is slowly kicking in, but it is also something very special.

Before I leave home I wanted to share a sneak outfit preview of an upcoming look with you all. I try to always dress up a bit when I go to Amsterdam for an event or press day. I try to look my  best, look approachable but I also wear something that makes me feel good. Since I tend to do a lot of networking during these events I want to feel confident and happy so I can talk to people easier and show them who I am.

Last week I wore a H&M jumpsuit and very fluffy H&M scarf while visiting press days and today I am going for a more casual look… 🙂 Can’t wait to show you more shots but I need to run now!

Have a lovely day!


HM & Sarandipity Loves Rotterdam – Outfit post


Ciao ragazzi, buona sera!

After a busy day of visiting 5 press agencies and shooting a new look with my blogger babe Britt I can finally show you the full look I was wearing to the HMLovesRotterdam VIP opening party. As an employee of H&M and as a big fan of HM I decided to go for an all H&M outfit, of course! 😉

This is actually almost the same look as the look with this knitted sweater in the H&M Magazines, but I decided to spice things up a bit by wearing my Nike Dunk Sky High sneakers to make the chic / college style look somewhat more sporty and casual. Which is also a bit more me than a full college style look.

We were very lucky with the weather this day and these pictures turned out amazing! As a former Rotterdam-girl I love this town and it always feels a bit like coming home. Which is quiet strange since I never felt at home in the Rotterdam atmosphere when I still lived there. Maybe the city just goes a little bit too fast for me… But sometimes it is good to run for a train and catch it while it is already leaving the platform. Jumping on a moving train is a good way to get a head start when it comes to making changes for the better.  Right now I am starting with some very cool new projects like writing for modelboard.com and trying to make a living out of my blog. Yes some really cool things are coming up I think and I am pursuing my dreams, finally! 🙂

I am wearing; Knitted sweater, white oversized blouse and faux-leather pants – All H&M, necklace – Primark and sneakers – NIKE.

Let me know what you think of this look and if you have any tips for starting up my own company you are welcome to share these as well!

H&M loves Rotterdam!

Ciao ragazzi,

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

Ciao ragazzi,

Fall is here and it’s time to get your autumn & winter wardrobe ready. In todays Friday Favorites I want to tell you what I think are this years fall wardrobe essentials! From fluffy sweaters like the one above (just an example since it’s an older campaign) to statement accessories! With this blogpost you can go shopping to get your clothing stash fall ready!

Starting of with the fluffy sweater, fluffy, soft items are definite a musthave and are fall wardrobe essentials. With a fluffy sweater you can not go wrong! Go for a pastel colored version or stick to black or white. There are a lot of different fits this season as well, like oversized, cropped or a normal fit. I suggest buying different fits so you can have a fluffy item for different occasions to style in a totally different way! A fluffy or faux fur jacket is also a great essential for this years fall, combine it with a fluffy sweater for a ready-to-cuddle look! 😉

Second of the fall wardrobe essentials to me is a (faux) leather pants, a timeless piece which just screams power woman haha. Definitely a must buy!

What else do I think is an essential piece for your wardrobe? Read more for some other shopping suggestions! Continue reading
