I AMSTERDAM

I amsterdam outfit

Hi there! Another shoot in beautiful Amsterdam, this time in front of the proud of Amsterdam, the famous “Rijksmuseum”. Normally there is water where I am standing. I took the opportunity to have a shoot here :) I know I should be ashamed, but as citizen of Amsterdam (for only a year though), I have never been to this museum before. Well, I guess I have inspired myself this time to visit this place soon ;)

Not that I am complaining, but the sun came out at the moment we wanted to shoot. It was cloudy all day, so I did not bring my sunglasses with me. So excuse me for the extra Chinese eyes ;)

When I saw the Isabel Marant for H&M vest in the lookbook, it reminded me of this vest that I got last year in a sale at Zara. I totally forgot that I had this vest. Funny that it has the same colors and similar prints. Well.. at least there is one thing of the collection that I won’t have to buy.. I seriously cannot choose between all the great pieces. You know what is even worse? I don’t only want the whole women’s collection, but also some of the men’s collection.. and wait wait.. and also from the kid’s collection!! Pff.. I have no idea how I am going to manage it. I really worry about that day, I better come up with a strategy and prioritize everything that I want to buy!

I know that some of you might think I am a moron or something. Maybe I am.. But as a fashion lover, you must understand this need and obsession. I always go to these collaboration sales with a few girlfriends, it’s our tradition. I will tell you more about this very soon, in another post :)

Some details from my look today. The fluffy scarf is really nice to wear without being itchy. And the bracelet is actually also a necklace from the Maison Martin Margiela for H&M (last year’s collaboration).
