….in Amsterdam!! August is the month of travel. How European I have become in the two and a half years of living here. After our sailing of the Adriatic we made a quick weekend getaway to Amsterdam with two other couples. We arrived a day earlier than the rest of our party which gave me time to explore vintage shops (check out my instagram for a glimpse at some of the goods “mjintheuk”), home good stores and coffee breaks in the form of a macchiato 😉 For an outfit that would take me from an early morning flight to a questionable bedtime I opted for distressed denim, a sensible pair of walking shoes, and a bit of glitz in the form of a sequin top. The top drew a bit of attention at the airport by a businessman heading to Edinborough who said he hoped I was “headed somewhere fun.” My response, “I am the fun.” Hope you are all enjoying the last rays of summer wherever you may be! Cheers!
Hello! So I am currently in the midst of moving and just turned in the keys to our flat in Islington today! So bittersweet, but truly excited for the adventures in store for us as we head over to West London to set up home. As a result of moving and packing my attire has of late has been loose and comfortable: boyfriend denim, a white t-shirt and a slouchy cardigan borrowed from the hubs. When wearing over sized clothing, an easy way to pull the look together is by adding a clean cut statement coat. The perfect addition to walk into an afternoon meeting on a quick break between the hustle and bustle between London boroughs. Cheers!
Spring is finally here! At least it feels that way today in London. The sun is out, the daffodils are in bloom, and the flats are on! (I am so over wearing boots). Even though there still may be a slight nip in the air, I find the easiest way to prepare is to layer. A warm sweater underneath a leather vest will surely keep you warm for when you cross over onto the shady side of the street. I am so in love with my new Spring flats as well. They are the perfect mix of Parisian chic and classic Audrey. They are an absolute steal at ASOS (just note that they do run a full size larger if ordering). Hope you are enjoying the weather wherever you may be! Cheers!
