sarandaadriana-van-haren-trend-high-profile9a

Happy Thursday babes,

Today I am not doing much, besides job-hunting, getting some e-mails out of the door – (a little bit of steenkolen English here ;)) and getting ready for the upcoming weekend.

My birthday is right around the corner and this weekend at a family reunion I will celebrate my birthday as well. I am pretty much looking forward to it and I’m already thinking what I should wear… I need something sporty for the activities during the reunion, but I want to look pretty afterwards!

For now, just casually sharing my latest outfit with you all! What do you think? Personally I think this is the perfect look for a Friday Night casually hanging with the girls… 🙂
I’m wearing a hat from French Connection, blouse by Garcia, oversized cardigan by Kings of Indigo (KOI), blue jeans by Selected Femme, high profile booties by Van Haren and studded bag by Noosa Amsterdam!

Hope you all will have a great day!

XO,
Saranda

Trend report: How to wear Black and White

Black and white trend - witte sneakers - sarandaadriana2

Hi babes,

Do you know what I think about, when I think about the black and white trend? White sneakers! So today I want to talk a little bit about this trend and how I wear white sneakers in a Black and White look.

I must say I can be a little bit afraid to go for a duo chrome look sometimes. Styling is key! A B&W outfit can become boring or plain pretty quickly. But with a stylish pair of white sneakers, your black and white outfit is going to be on point!

You can find some perfect white sneakers, or black if you prefer, over here!

How to style a Black and White look

There are a lot of ways to style a white pair of sneakers within a black and white look. A classic way to style your white sneakers is to pair it with a black jeans, white t-shirt and  a leather jacket. Another classic is to wear white sneakers with a black sweater dress and, again, a leather jacket. But of course you can mix it up! For example go for a white silky blouse instead of a t-shirt and finish the look with a hat, just like I did for this outfit! Another idea is to go for an all white look with black accessories. Which can also be very beautiful! If you want to pull this of make sure all the white items are the same shade of white, for that crispy clean look!

My personal favourite way to style white sneakers in a B&W? White sneakers, black leather pants, a slouchy black cashmere sweater with v-neck, a long white coat, a black choker and a fancy black handbag. How would you style white sneakers in a black and white look? Let me know in the comments!

That seventies show – Outfit post

that seventies show outfit ootd dutch fashion blogger sarandaadriana4

Ciao dearies,

A lot of current trends are pure throwbacks to the 70’s, 80’s or 90’s! The flared jeans, strong shoulder pieces, sporty shoes and bandana or silk scarfs, trends that are coming back to life after having been gone for a while. In today’s outfit I am showing you my take on the current trends and how I like to wear these different trends together in a seventies sporty outfit with some 90’s influence. This look not only gave me a ‘That seventies show’ feeling, but it also gave me the Farrah Fawcett on a skateboard vibe! And for me it was a personal throwback to the time I wore scarfs like these every freaking day, the 90’s.

I am super happy with this outfit and I felt really good wearing it. I think it is a pretty original combination of items and trends, which I did not see before on someone else and which just matched pretty okay. It kind of feels like maybe I have found my signature style. Who knows…

To end this blogpost there is something I want to share with you. There are a lot of ‘fashion rules’ and sometimes people might not agree with what you are wearing, or they don’t like how you dress. But you should feel good in it. And no matter what people might tell you, about how you are making a faux pas or something: Fashion is not math, rules are not exact and some rules are there to be broken. Just like how I styled a pair of boot-cut jeans with plain sneakers, because I wanted to 😉 And because the Stan Smiths* are still super on-trend of course!

In this ‘that seventies show’ outfit I am wearing my Oakwood leather jacket, H&M striped top, VANS x STAR WARS bandana, H&M flared jeans, Furla bag via Designer Outlet Roermond* and Adidas Stan Smiths via Omoda*.

What do you think of this seventies style inspired look? Let me know by leaving a comment!

Top 5 upcoming trends this fall

Top 5 upcoming trends this fall

 

Ciao dearies,

Last Wednesday I already shared some of my dream fall outfits with you in the Pinspiration blogpost! Today I am talking about fall fashion again, this time about my personal top 5 upcoming trends for this fall!

Let’s start with my number 5 and count down to my absolute favorite trend 🙂
Here we go!!

On fifth place: (faux) Fur
Furry jackets, gilets or stole’s are perfect for the fall winter season, warm and super fashionable. A trend that has returned now for several years. I personally love fur, however I like to stay mindful when buying fur. A lot of fur gathering is not done free of pain and I do love animals. That’s why I tend to look to brands that get their fur from farms where the animals have lived a long life or where the fur is a leftover product from the meat productions.

What do you think of fur?! Read on for the rest of my top 5 upcoming trends this fall…
