My Look: Tropical Meets Apple Tree

With this warm forecast set for September, we will all spend as much time outdoors as possible. Even though we might not be jetting off to some beautiful tropical island, that doesn’t mean we cannot wear those vibrant holiday prints at home. Tropical patterns have been a huge trend this summer. I think they match perfectly with Swiss apple trees and green meadows, don’t you agree?

My Look: Diva!

Be a diva in a positive way. Enjoy dressing up – even at the pool! Exude great style and personality with confidence and express your own style while not letting others influence who you are or want to be. I am wishing you a happy weekend. I am going to spend mine in my garden and you?

My Look: Bookworm

I would consider myself a fashionable bookworm. In my house, I have my own little library, filled with all sorts of books. Reading is so much more my thing than watching TV. During quarantine I indulged in so many captivating books – psychological thrillers are my favorite genre. You can find my reading list on my Amazon x Sandra’s Closet book shop. Stay tuned, as I will upload a new section very soon. Don’t forget, fashion can be as imaginative as your favorite stories.

My Look: Lake Como

Greetings from the beautiful Villa d’Este. This was a difficult post to shoot as I faced three obstacles, first the photos were taken right before dinner with not the best light, secondly it was raining and last but not least my dear boyfriend was not in the mood to take some pictures as usual. However, I tried to get the best out of it, so that you can see one of my favorite summer outfits. I am such a big fan of jumpsuits and this one is light and unexpected as it looks like a dress.

Are you looking for the perfect party sandal? This pair features darling strawberry details, slim straps that wrap securely around the ankle, and a pin-thin heel.

My Look: Villa d’Este

Greetings from Lake Como, where I am staying at one of my favorite hotels in the world, Villa d’Este. It is simply a heaven in one of Italy’s most desirable locations: Cernobbio. This Renaissance era palace is a portal to another world, with a touch of Italian Old World charm it is a true luxurious experience. Walking through the beautiful gardens, I am wearing my favorite summer uniform, a floral Zimmermann gown and a Bottega Veneta bag. The linen fabrics are easy to pack and look great even a little bit wrinkled.

Looking at the terrible news from Beirut, I am so thankful that I am in such a beautiful and safe environment. Sending prayers to Lebanon. Everyone, stay safe! It is not the easiest time we are living in at the moment. So enjoy every day to the fullest!

My Look: Mary Mare

My beloved Mary Katrantzou is giving me wanderlust while enjoying my staycation. Mary Mare is a seasonless, year-round capsule line, inspired by sunny, oceanfront destinations: Cannes, Nice, Greece, Portofino, Monte Carlo, Venice, Dubrovnik, the Côte d’Azur, and more. You saw me already sporting the sea-shell print in June (for the previous post, click here please).

Now, it is time to enjoy my newest pieces at the pool in my new house. I especially adore the signature Postage Stamps print, alluding to the nostalgia of writing postcards to our loved ones while on vacation. Taking inspiration from the 10th anniversary collection, this print was reimagined in her London studio and adorns my bathing suit.

My Look: Glamour at the Pool

With all the safety precautions I am honestly so not in the mood for traveling somewhere. And to be honest, there is no need to with these beautiful sunny temperatures in Switzerland at the moment. I love my pool and garden so much. It is the best place to chill, relax and work. Dressing up at home is also fun … in this sense, I hope you are enjoying your Sunday!
