What I Wore In: Amsterdam
If you asked me to move to Amsterdam tomorrow, I would in a heartbeat. I loved the laid back and friendly vibe of the city so much, and the infrastructure is out of this world.
We stayed a little outside the city Centrum at the ultra-hip, independently owned Volkshotel. The hotel was just over the canal to the super cool and eclectic neighbourhood of De Pijp where we spent a lot of time exploring. We also loved hanging out in the trendy yet traditional District of Jordaan, close to the Anne Frank House and lots, and lots of awesome boutiques. We made sure to visit the famous Waterlooplein Market, the oldest outdoor flea market in Amsterdam, for all our vintage needs close to the city centre. Basically, we did a lot of shopping in Amsterdam, because there is just so much of it to do!
Amsterdam is just damn cool, and I'm not just talking about the Red Light District and the "Coffeeshops" it's famous for. There are vintage clothing shops seemingly around every corner. Cafes, where actual coffee is served (and not the smokable kind of 'coffee' you might find in the "Coffeeshops") are everywhere and oh so Instagrammable, the beer is delicious, and there are adorable open farmer and flea markets all over the place. The city is super walkable, and even more bike-a-ble. I can see why bicycles are the main form of transportation there, and it's such an efficient city that is bike oriented, so you can take your bike anywhere and feel safe.
I packed for our entire 2 week vacation in a carry-on, so you'll be seeing a lot of repeat looks in this "What I Wore In" series. The weather was cool and cloudy while we were there, so layering was essential. Comfort was also key during our stay because we were walking everywhere, so the shoes and the clothes had to be just that. Let me know if you want to see a blog post on how I pulled off surviving 2 weeks in Europe in JUST a carry-on.
Where will you be travelling next?
