Style Pack Go: Amsterdam

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I went to Amsterdam for a long weekend in early April. It. Was. Cold. Chill to your bone cold –  damp and rainy. So I was constantly wrapped up. The rain did get a little annoying, but I sometimes prefer touring a city when it’s colder and the cold suits Amsterdam.

Here’s what I packed:

TOPS: Boiled wool grey turtleneck, a cashmere sweater, Black V-Neck Sweater, long sleeve layering pieces

BOTTOMS: My favorite jeans

OUTERWEAR: UniQlo puffer coat, Burberry Cashmere coat, 2 scarves (one big, one small), Rabbit fur headband, Cashmere Hat, gloves

SHOES: Boots, Adidas Sneakers

BAGS: Cross body Givenchy, Travel Tote bag (Louis Vuitton)

 

What I wish I would have packed:

All weather boots and a proper winter coat (either wool or a parka, really a parka)

 

Apart from the amazing museums in Amsterdam, here’s my don’t miss list:

  1. Drinks at The Hoxtonimg_2199
  2. Fries at Manneken Pisimg_0424
  3. Breakfast at Buffet van Odette img_2192
  4. Restaurant Brix for dinnerimg_0170
  5. De Kaaskamer cheese shopimg_0501
  6. Wynand Fockink – a very old and traditional liqueur bar img_0411
  7. Keukenhof Flower show (if it’s the right time of year)
  8. Westerstraat Number 54 – there are tiny, tiny houses in between numbers 54 and 70 to make up for the discrepancy in the housing numbers.  So adorable and fun. img_2188

 

Why not save for later?
