Around the World in 24 Bloggers


Since the 1st of December, ORLEBAR BROWN has been travelling around the world with 24 bloggers counting down the holiday season. I was also invited to create my own gift guide choosing 3 items from the new Cruise 2014 collection dedicated to different recipients: 
‘For him, for her and for you’.


GIFT FOR HIM – BULLDOG for my husband
The print is absolutely divine and I am sure that he will love those shorts. Personally speaking, I am having an agenda – I would like to borrow them from time to time.

GIFT FOR HER – HAMPTON for my sister
She is leaving to the Maledives with her boyfriend. I am sure after seeing her in this gorgeous red bikini, he will finally propose to her.

SanremoGIFT FOR ME – SANREMO for me
This is the perfect stylish cover-up for the beach that you can also wear with high heels at night.

Founded by photographer Adam Brown in 2007, London-based label Orlebar Brown has become the go-to brand for smart tailored shorts in a variety of bold colours and graphic patterns for men and the welcome addition to the female swimwear closet.

Last night, I got back from Gstaad where I attended the Asmallworld Winter Weekend. Those photos were taken before I left the charming Swiss mountain town that was bathed in warm sunshine yesterday.

My look: Roses print boiled wool-blend biker jacket iconand matching shorts, both by Givenchy, fine-knit wool turtleneck sweater iconby Lanvin, Audrey wayfarer sunglasses by Céline, Boy bag with chains by Chanel and fur boots by Prada Sport.

LoL, Sandra

Olivia Palermo: Cheetah Print and Red Lace

Olivia Palermon Leo

Who would have thought that cheetah print and red lace could look so lovely together?!

Olivia Palermo knows her style well and combines her animal-print shorts by Tibi with a red lace top by Zara for a punchy contrast. She keeps the rest simple with a pair of ballet flats iconby Repetto and a gold cuff.

If you are planning already your fall wardrobe, have a look at those pieces:

Leopard & Lace

Printed cotton-blend sateen blazer (40% on sale) iconand skinny pants (50% off on sale), both by Tibi and Cecilia lace shirt icon(new season) by Erdem.

You could work the look from head to toe with the pants and the jacket together or just wear one at a time with this beautiful lace shirt for a fashion-forward combination.

LoL, Sandra

Today’s Look: Back to School


No, just kidding, it wasn’t me who went back to school, it was my daughter. So one of those very stressful mornings with no time to get ready as we had to leave pretty early. I am sure that all mums know what I am talking about.

Therefore I kept my makeup very simple, meaning just a little blush and some lipgloss (no eye makeup!). In case of an emergency, you can hide your eyes with big sunglasses.


My outfit: Blue Blazer and Python Flats by Zara (in stores now), White Shirt by Prada, Shorts by Blumarine, Sunglasses by Marc Jacobs, Python Boston Bag by Céline, Earrings and Ring by H&M, Bangles by Chanel and Bracelet (Souvenir from Istanbul).

Have a nice day!

LoL, Sandra
