Day 1 of my Amsterdam trip. I headed off to the airport at around 7am. It was one of the most miserable July days you could possibly imagine – rainy, windy and freezing cold. I was anticipating better weather in Amsterdam – maybe a few degrees warmer? – so I threw on a pair of culottes, ankle boots, a cream turtleneck jumper and a light faux leather jacket.
Once I landed in Amsterdam, though, I realised that I had gravely underestimated the temperatures, and I was so happy that my journey to the hotel wasn’t a long one. As I arrived in my beautiful room in the Art’otel, I immediately swapped my old Zara culottes for my brand new Topshop culottes and grabbed two of the goodies waiting for me on my bed. A crop top* and a crazy comfortable pair of Birkenstock lookalike sandals*, both from boohoo.
Then Luise from Kleinstadt Carrie and I went for a walk by the canals and spontaneously decided that this beautiful floral street would be the perfect backdrop for a quick photo shoot. The air was so humid that my hair had decided to turn into a wild bush, so I used my Armani sunglasses* to tame them a little and let Luise do her magic.
