amsterdam

Wham, Blam, Amsterdam...

Monday, November 22, 2010

Well Im back! I had planned to do 'what i packed' post just before I left for Amsterdam but time seemed to slip away in between running round like a headless chicken trying to get euros, adapter plugs and other such essentials..


I had lots of lovely things packed & had planned to take loads of blog photos, but the weather in Amsterdam was freezing! Amsterdam bloggers who stroll out in open toe wedges, bare legs and sheer blouses I salute you cos I had about a million layers on at all times..lacy tights, wedge brogues & strapless dresses for night lay in the bottom of my suitcase unworn cos it was just too cold!











Top & tights: H&M, Skirt: River Island, Boots: M&S, Scarf: borrowed from Dave, Necklace: c/o Cutiepie.

I ended up living in my trusty ribbed knit tights and ankle boots, heels where just to impractical due to the amount of walking we did. I got this top in H&M London last month, I loved the rose print and longish sleeves but the wide boat neck put me off.. I think it tends to make me look broad shouldered..but i could resist this top and just wore in slung off one shoulder..

Amsterdam highlights:
Cycling round the city, so much fun and a great way to see a lot of the beautiful scenery..
Van Gogh museum..so inspiring..
amazing cheesy danishes that we got at a local supermarket..so addictive..
Dandering around the local markets..
Shopping in the Monki store..
Drinking hot port in a castle turned bar..

  45. Ah great you were in Amsterdam! I live in The Netherlands and I thank you for putting out that we are fierce women to walk around in our open toe wedges and bare legs! But thankfully I have to go to work in my humble car so I can stay warm :) But at night (to dance) I face the freezing cold to go to a bar. Bare legged...

    I see you had a great time, I hope every visit in our country will be great! (So maybe see you next time)

    Love,
    Nancy
