CONVERSE sneakers     FOREVER21 skirt     FOREVER21 t-shirt

These last couple of days I have been feeling very uninspired and lazy so I haven't been updating
the blog as much as I would have wanted to. Sometimes you just need to take a break from things,
even though it is thing that you love to do. All I can do is dream about LA, the heat and spending my
time with my boyfriend. Miss him so much. Tomorrow I am going to a family brunch so I will show
you some outfit photos really soon. I am also going to be doing a little Q&A since I always get some
questions and just want to let you guys get to know me a little better. So if you have any questions do
not be shy to comment below the posts or send me a email. Hope you all have an amazing weekend x.

PS. Don't be shy to comment, I am getting so many visits each day but people don't really 
comment. Much more fun to see who is reading and what you think x.


white dreams

28 March 2012

TOPSHOP dress

WHITE DREAMS. One of my favorite things ever is when I am organizing my closet and I find some 
things in there which I have completely forgotten about. The other week while unpacking my bag from
LA I decided to take out all of the things that I don't use anymore. While doing that I found this amazing
dress from Topshop that I got about two years ago. I love the details on the front and the back is gorgeous
as well. I am definitely going to take it with me when I go to LA next month, will look so good with some
sandals and tanned skin. But if you are interested then I am selling some of clothes from my closet HERE.


last couple of days

27 March 2012






INSTAGRAM IT. I've been home for almost a week now and I still haven't gotten used to the
time difference. I go to sleep at 4 in the morning and wake up really late. I've been so tired that I
am hardly bothered to get dressed during the day and just spend it lying in bed watching movies
and shows while eating icelandic candy (seriously the best candy ever). I promise that I will give
you a good outfit post really soon, when I stop being jet lagged and when the weather is good. It
has been raining ever since I came so I choose to lie in bed instead of going out. You can follow
me via Instagram to follow me better, I post there almost every day and the photos there are more
personal then I post here on the blog. Follow me @alexsandrab. Hope you all have a great week.


daydreaming

25 March 2012


Driving by Santa Monica Beach - Driving up N Beachwood Drive, such a beautiful street - The corner 
of Hollywood Blvd & Vine right by our apartment - Me and my wonderful boyfriend who I miss like 
crazy - Miss lying by the pool in the mornings with a magazine - Cooling off in our pool - Driving up 
to Malibu on the weekends to look at beautiful stuff at Intermix and eating Red Velvet cupcakes from
Crumbs - Friday night at Saddle Ranch on Sunset Strip - Saying my goodbye to Malibu from the plane.

Missing LA so much, but not that long until I am back.

new in: converse

24 March 2012


NEW IN. Remember the other day when I told you guys that I really wanted a pair of low burgundy
Converse? Well, last week they were finally mine. I bought my first pair of Converse a couple of years
ago, they are just the classic black ones. I never really used them but when I bought my white low ones
I can't get enough of them. I love how they go with everything, even tough it's shorts, skirts or dresses.


new in: knot ring

22 March 2012


KNOT RING. Sorry for the lack of updates for the past week, I flew home to Iceland on Tuesday 
and after 20 hours of traveling I have been spending time with family and trying to get rid of the jet 
lag. Even though it is amazing to come home, I kind of miss the LA atmosphere. I mean who doesn't 
love sun and heat when it is winter at home? I wanted to show you this amazing ring that I got last 
week while I was still in Los Angeles. I have gotten addicted to small and simple jewelry. I ordered 
it from Amazon and can you believe was only $12. Hope you all have an amazing weekend x.


tribal madness

19 March 2012


SUGARLIPS tribal shorts     FOREVER21 t-shirt     CONVERSE shoes     LINDEX bag

TRIBAL MADNESS. The other day, before the weekend, I received these amazing shorts in
the mail and the first thing I wanted to to was change into them and wear them. The weather was
so bad though that I didn't get a chance until today to wear them. They are the most perfect shorts
for summer, I love the color of them and the print goes so well with it. Love how you can pair 
them with something casual and dress them up as well. These shorts are from Sugarlips Apperal
and I really recommend that you check out their site HERE. I decided to pair them with a casual
t-shirt and my Converse shoes. Today is my last day here in LA, tomorrow I will fly home to
Iceland for a couple of weeks. I am really excited to go home but at the same time I am kind of
sad that I am leaving Los Angeles, I will definitely miss the sun and the heat, but most of all my BF.


new in: spring knits

17 March 2012

FOREVER21 knits

SPRING KNITS. Knits are one of my all time favorite things to shop for, so I have quite a few of them. 
The other day I decided that it was time for a little upgrade and I needed some knits in a lighter color since
spring is just right around the corner. I found two really nice knits at the Forever 21 store. I instantly fell in
love with the mint colored one, it is definitely a must have color this spring and summer. The other one is
a white knit with which is a little longer in the back than it is in the front which I absolutely love. I hope
that you all have a great weekend, it is raining here in LA so it will be a nice cosy day inside for us.


wanted: spring jeans

15 March 2012

1. Paige Denim     2. 7 For All Mankind     3. Paige Denim

SPRING JEANS. There are so many new and exciting trends for the upcoming spring and summer that 
make me so excited for the season. First, pastel colors of course, which have gotten me head over heels 
and now jeans with a fun summery print. I can't take my eyes of the 7 For All Mankind jeans. They will
look so amazing with just a classic loose t-shirt and some sandals. Putting them on my wishlist for spring.


beach weekend

14 March 2012

FOREVER 21 shirt     H&M skirt     H&M necklace     RAY BAN sunglasses     OPI excuse moi

BEACH WEEKEND. Last weekend we had the most beautiful weather. It has been fairly cold the last
couple of days so a nice hot day was really refreshing. We decided to make the most out of the day so we
rented a car and drove around town. We started by going to Santa Monica Beach where we sat for some
time and just enjoyed the sun. Then we headed over to Malibu where we ate some cupcakes and I got to
try on the PS1 bag by Proenza Schouler, it was so beautiful and I didn't want to say goodbye. It was the
perfect day to wear my new shirt from Forever 21 again and I paired it with a black H&M bodycon skirt
and my new H&M necklace which I am in love with.

new in: pastels

11 March 2012


PASTELS. Yesterday while out and about in Beverly Hills I stumbled up on a small store which had
the most amazing selection of both Essie and OPI nail polishes. It was like I was in heaven, they were 
so many. I found two that really caught my eye and I couldn't decide which one to buy so I decided to
take both of them home. At first I wasn't that much into the pastel trend but now I am really starting to
like it. The first one is called "To buy or not to buy?" and the other one is "Minty Candy Apple". Now
all I want is a nice minty light sweater for spring, think I've already found one that is nice and cheap too.


casual thursday

09 March 2012

 H&M shorts     FOREVER21 t-shirt     H&M necklace     CONVERSE sneakers

CASUAL THURSDAY. Yesterday was the perfect day to  take it easy and just relax and enjoy. I
started the day by lying by the pool, reading tabloids and getting some sun before I go home to
Iceland.  The day ended with a little walk around our neighborhood and some hot tub relaxation.
Wearing shorts that I got at H&M in London and paired it with a basic t-shirt from Forever21 and
my Converse shoes which I love. I think that they are so comfortable and they go with everything,
it's ridiculous how extremely well they go with everything, even dresses and skirts. I also have a
high black pair which I haven't used before but I am going to start wearing them, I am also craving
a low pair in burgundy. Hope you all have a nice day.


black & white

08 March 2012

 FOREVER21 shirt      H&M skirt     VINTAGE bag     CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN shoes

BLACK & WHITE. As you probably know my style is really simple. I don't like to over accessorize 
or do something big. I just stick to my style and what I feel comfortable in. Black and white is one of 
my favorite trends. It's so chic and never fails. This shirt from Forever21 has become my favorite shirt.
It goes so well with everything so today I decided to match it with a little bow tie. Paired it with a simple
black H&M skirt, a vintage bag and my Louboutins. Hope you are all having a wonderful day so far.


inspiration

INSPIRATION. Sorry for the lack of updates for the past couple of days. I got a stomach flu 
and have been lying in bed watching Gossip Girl and looking at inspiration photos. Here are some 
that I wanted to share with you. But I promise a outfit post as soon as I can get myself out of bed. 

P.S. Just wanted to remind you that if you have any questions or want to collaborate with me
