I have been away for the last few days on a little post Christmas break in Amsterdam with my boyfriend. Sadly, I got home last night, I didn’t want to leave, it’s such an amazing and diverse city with plenty to do! I am hoping to do a post soon on our time there and what we got up to, but not today. Today I have an outfit post for you guys; it’s actually what I wore to the airport and the photos were taken while we were rambling around the canals on our first day in the city.
My outfit is quite simple, because we were travelling very early this day I wanted to be warm and comfortable so I layered up! My coat is from Urban Outfitters, it was featured on one of my very first posts and I have lived in it ever since. It was a perfect coat for Amsterdam as we had a bit of rain and it was very cold! My jumper is just a plain burgundy round neck from Penneys/Primark, I got it back in September and it has been a great addition to my wardrobe as I have worn it to death. My leggings are also Penneys best, I wore them because I thought they would be comfier than jeans on the plane and I love the leather look panelling down the side of them. It make them a bit different to your ordinary plain black leggings. I think they were both about €11 each! My blouse is from Forever 21 and I got it in the States at the end of the summer. I think it goes very well with the outfit, it adds an extra layer of warmth and I love the collar popping out! I also added my statement necklace again from Penneys/ Primark to finish the look.
My headband is from H & M and it’s perfect for keeping your ears warm while wandering around if you don’t want to wear a hat. I really love the design at the front; it is both practical and stylish!
My handbag is from New Look and was about €26 with my student discount. It was the only handbag I brought with me and it was perfect for the trip. The size and design makes it perfect for both night and day; while still being big enough to fit all the essentials from my bobble to our maps and souvenirs!
