EQT

TOP oasis// DRESS h&m// TRAINERS adidas EQT Racers

I finally got round to doing another outfit post. I'm trying to find a regular routine which hasn't been easy as I'm still very much in the process of settling in to my new life in Amsterdam. Good news though! I'm no longer sofa surfing and have a room of my own. Huzzah!

I have had my eye on these Adidas EQT Racer shoes for a long time now. For a girl who is rarely out of trainers, I needed to find a pair that would be perfect for summer, so these airy light beauties fit the bill perfectly. 

Fave Amsterdam spot of the week: The Breakfast Club (not to be confused with the London chain). Delicious stacked pancakes and beautifully cool interior. What more could you ask for?

COLOUR IN UTRECHT

PLAYSUIT zara| SANDALS birkenstocks| SUNGLASSES vintage

Your eyes are not fooling you, I am indeed wearing a little bit of colour. 

I picked up this plaid jumpsuit whilst doing my guilty "I shouldn't be here, I have no money" weekly trip into Zara the other week. Thank god it was in the sale for only £15! Absolute bargain. I have been counting down the grey cloudy days, hoping a little bit of sun would come out soon so I could make the presumptuous move of getting my legs out. Yesterday was that day.

We ventured into the charming little city of Utrecht yesterday and we couldn't have chosen a better day weather wise. I am complete in awe of all the beautiful houses making up this city.




AMSTERDAM

JACKET forever 21| JUMPER zara| WHITE TROUSERS asos| SLIDERS adidas| BAG urban outfitters

I have officially moved to Amsterdam! I have been here a week and I am absolutely IN LOVE with all things Dutch, I have to say. 

If you have been before, it's quite obvious to notice the relaxed and easy going atmosphere in Amsterdam. It doesn't have that distinctive constant rush like most cities do. 

During my time here, I have made it my main mission to blog about my favourite finds each week (which is probably going to consist of a LOT of food posts). This weekend I ventured out with my friend Melissa and found the most incredible Cafe in the depths of Amsterdam Centraal, called "Coffee and Coconuts". It is three floors of minimal and oh so, 'instagramable' interior. I have never been to a Cafe like it. 

Last words of advice: go for the brownie and homemade ice tea. Perfection.

WEARING A WINTER COAT IN MAY// MAY FAVOURITES

COAT zara// SHIRT motel// TROUSERS zara// TRAINERS adidas// BAG river island// NECKLACE whistles// EARRINGS primark

Firstly, I would like to apologise for the terrible photo quality. My memory card has decided not to work, so I have replaced it with my dads digital camera's memory card that must date back to at least 2001.

I have had a few staple items added to the ol' wardrobe recently that I have been in desperate need to blog. Like these Zara pin striped trousers. Ah, too much love for these. 

I was also very kindly sent a gift card from River Island to spend in store. I picked this leather rucksack to see me through my Amsterdam travels. I thought it would be perfectly practical for my daily bike rides to work and back! (Eeeeeek, cannot wait!)

May Favourites:

1."Montage of Heck"- Kurt Cobain Documentary
2. HONNE- Coastal Love EP
4. Marmite

MY FRIENDS ARE TELLING ME NO, BUT MY FEET ARE TELLING ME YES.


What have I done?! Two 'marmite' trends in one!

I know. Very brave move on my part, but to my defence:

1. Socks and sandals are my feets best friend at the moment. The amount of trauma I have put the poor little guys through recently due to inappropriate footwear; they deserved a holiday.
2. The double denim trend? I'm not going to even defend this. I have stood by the double denim trend since Britney and Posh Beck's rocked it in the 90's. I'm going to revel all up in the resurrection of double denim until I hear Posh and Britney say "bitch stole ma look". 

I digress.

I'm back in the switch' for a few days, I've finished my last bit of uni work as well as second year and I'm about to move to Amsterdam for 5 months.

Shit. is. happening. quick.

I am beyond ridiculously excited to be moving to a different country, let alone a city as beautiful as Amsterdam! Expect new scenes for this little space. I'm going to be taking you along for the ride.

STUDENT WISH LIST WITH RIVER ISLAND

RI


Being a typical poor and lazy student myself, I know how hard it can be waking up in the morning let alone trying to think about what you're gunna wear for the rest of the week. When funds are low, (and sometimes morale depending on how long you've been slaving away in the library, a place at which you now call 'home') it's easy to rock the slob look all day er'y day to lectures. With this in mind, River Island recently set me the challenge to pull together 10 of my favourite picks which are great for student life. I'm mixing the smart with the casual by incorporating tailored styles with the comfiest looking shoes known to man. 

Cause' who doesn't want to rock fur lined sliders to their 9 o'clock lecture?




River Island are hooking up with UNiDAYS on Tuesday 21st- Thursday 23rd April offering 20% off (full priced products) in all stores (UK & ROI) and online.
