in Amsterdam pt. I


blazer - H&M; silk top - Sonja Rykiel for H&M; jeans - Cheap Monday; biker boots - Vagabond; hat - H&M

I wore this on on my first day in Amsterdam but it turned out to be way colder than I expected so I had to put on a thick knit pullover to explore the city. >.< City trips in the middle of december are defintely an adventure! Don't even bother packing anything other than warm clothes and shoes - you won't end up wearing it anyway =P. I acutally packed 3 pairs of shoes and a skirt and dresses but in the end I always wore my warm biker boots with 2 pairs of socks, jeans over tights and layer upon layer of shirts and knits - haha. I returned with half of my clothes unworn >.<
But once you're all wrapped up it's really nice to walk around in the winter sun along the canals - the cold wind blowing in your face and a cup of hot coffee in your hands <3 Amsterdam is such a beautiful city, all the cute little cafes, shops and of course the pretty canal houses. All the appartments looks so chic and beautifully furnished. I wanted to move right in.

This silver rabbit head pendant was a chirstmas present from my boyfriend.
I’ve been wearing it pretty much everyday since I got it. I love love love it!
Thank you so much darling. I love you! <3

The pendant is from the Norwegian jewelery designer BJØRG. Their pieces are amazing - check out the website!

oh you bought the silk top from Sonya Rykiel too! ^^

Amsterdam seems to be like worth to visit! I really should have to go on a city trip once I've got time!

I really know what you mean!when it comes to packing for vacations I always pack too much stuff and then end up with the clothes I have already worn on the first day.

wish you a great weekend!

XOXO

Aww you should've mailed me for some tips! I'm from Holland, and visit Amsterdam very often!
It's lovely indeed.
Try the nine-streets! You'll love them!
And if you love Amsterdam, you should come back in the summer, It's even better then!
