Ciao ragazzi!

Today I want to show you a really cool look! Something that you normally don’t see on my blog, I think. This look is really mature and chic and it represents an other part of me. This other part is someone who is quiet insecure and wants to know if she is doing a good job, or maybe not and how she can get better at something.

I am a perfectionist and I am hyper sensitive as they call it. I mostly see this as an advantage as I am eager to learn and fast at learning, I know when and how to talk to people because I can sense their emotions in a strange way when I am around them, but it can make me really insecure as well.

This is something that I have always been but after looking for a job for more than a year, getting a lot of rejections it is a big change for me to be working for a company again. I try to do my best everyday and every minute I am at work but sometimes I feel I can do better but I do not always know how… The other part also means that I want to build something for myself, I want to get good at the things I do and I want to do everything I love, and not just a bit, but a lot haha. I want to be taken seriously while still remaining the fun, loving and creative person I am.

With this outfit I want to show you all the components of this other side of me. Someone who tries her best, works hard, is serious and a perfectionist but someone who loves to make fun, get creative and can be insecure sometimes as well. But above all, this look made me feel like a woman who knows what she wants and has the ability to get what she wants by being herself and working hard, chasing her dreams.

I am wearing a dress and cardigan from Primark, boots by DUO, bag from Otra-Parte (check out their facebook & website for some more gorgeous felt bags) and jewelry by Pandora and Ikki.

As usual I would love to hear your opinion. I am mostly wondering what you think of the feeling I am trying to get across with this look…

Denim is the new black – Outfit post

outfit-ootd-pepejeans-noisymay-denimjacket-sarandipity-dutch-amsterdam--fashion-blog-blogger-sarandaadriana6-denim is the new black

Ciao ragazzi,

Today I am talking about denim, essential items from denim which everyone should have. For example the denim jacket! Not without a reason I say that Denim is the new black! Denim is timeless as I have learned at the #DenimtheNewIcons event in the designer outlet Roermond!

In this outfit I am wearing my personalized Pepe Jeans jacket which I won in a contest from Fashiolista! I really love how it states my blog name: Sarandipity and symbolises my personality, the things I am working on or the things I am looking to add more of in my current life.

The koi fish represents strength, the power of perseverance, luck and the power to fight setbacks. The lotus flower is a very important flower within the Buddhist and Hindu religions/cultures. To me this special flower, which grows from the mud to the surface, stands for purity, spiritual awakening, growth and faith or faithfulness.

With the focus on this special denim item I tried to keep the rest of my look more clean, black. While denim is the new black, we should not forget that black is still a perfect color for a clean and basic look. Black should never be underestimated and the same goes for denim!

My full look consists out of my Pepe Jeans denim jacket (Thanks to Fashiolista!), H&M tanktop, H&M pantalon, DUO leatherboots, MARMA Sunglasses, BL’QE Geneve bracelets and IKKI watch.

Loving leather – Outfit post


Ciao ragazzi, buon giorno!

Since I am already back in Holland for almost three weeks I already shot some outfits with my dear blogger babe Britt again. Today I want to show you the first outfit of this Amsterdam series, all photos are made around the Amsterdam Rijksmuseum. It’s a look that fits this weather perfectly. My overall attire in this outfit is more fall-ready haha. In this outfit the focus is on my flowy oversized top and my leather boots.

These boots from DUO are amazing and fit just perfectly. The calves are not to wide which is the problem I mostly had when buying knee-high-boots like this ones. Besides that they just look gorgeous and I love the wooden heel. The heels are pretty high but someway DUO managed it to make it look easy to wear these beauties. And it’s actually not that hard as I thought it would be. I still need to walk some more in them but they already fit pretty comfortable. I am so in love with them! My guess is that I will be wearing them a lot this winter! 😀

As you can see we had a lot of fun shooting this look, the location was wonderful and I felt super comfortable in this look. This look matches my personality so well I think, it’s playful, casual chic, with a hint of fierce & sexyness.

I am wearing: top from Expresso, tanktop H&M, jeans Noisy May, DUO leather boots (thanks to DUO & Fresh Communications), necklace from KarmaMantra, watch from IKKI, braceletes from BLQE Geneve and Noosa Amsterdam.

What do you think of this look and the shooting location? Let me know in a comment!  Continue reading
