Blurred and floating in Amsterdam
It may not be the news that I am wearing floral prints for the summer – but this floral print here is a specific one – the blurred florals, which have more of an arty touch, think aquarelle paintings. To me this print is so fascinating, it deserved an outfit post with the beautiful streets of Amsterdam as my backdrop.
To me this had been a great opportunity, a special occasion to later share and being able to indulge in reminiscence. I couldn’t imagine any better way to pay tribute to the Netherlands and the relevant soccer games, than wearing a beautiful, floaty, pleated chiffon skirt in orange together with a blurred floral print blouse. I made the Marc by Marc Jacobs Petal to the Metal Flap Pouchette my little tourist bag – why I mention it? Because I admit buying this bag because of the cute bird embellishment at the front. No regrets – this bag fits with many things because it is feminine and subtle – you can get the look here. I had to throw over a little denim jacket because it’s been – although very sunny – quite a bit chilly…
I was feeling comfortable yet elegant and as I said special visiting a foreign town. I firmly believe it’s the little things in life that will make you the happiest and I treated myself to a cute little souvenir on this weekend getaway.
I bought this adorable chain ring with a little blue star made of semi precious stone in a boutique called Bon Bon. The chain is gold filled and the ring has been fitted to my finger – up to today I haven’t been taking it off, because it is as light as feather – since it is real gold, no problem (you know with the showering, dish washing, etc.) Bon Bon jewellery is beloved by celebrities such as superstar model Doutzen Kroes – I really regret not having taken another piece, I paid for the ring a mere 22,50…
My stay in Amsterdam had been wonderful, I already shared my impressions of the city in my previous post. Of course it had been way too short. There are so many lovely places to visit in the world, the options are almost endless.
I am already dreaming of the next place to visit and hoping this will be happening soon…
Have you planned any traveling any time soon? Let me hear about it…
