We’re two weeks into our trip and I’m very pleased with my travel capsule. It has provided sufficient variety for all sorts of activities and weather conditions. I’ve had practical and fashionable options to wear each day, and my feet are doing extremely well walking long distances.
We walked through Amsterdam’s famous Negen Straatjes (translated: “Nine Streets”) neighbourhood last week and had a ball. The streets are filled with unique little shops, cafes, restaurants and boutiques. All beautifully decorated, hip, modern and very “gezellig”, which means cozy in Dutch. I bought a bag from a gorgeous little boutique called The Amsterdam Bag Company, but more about that later.
I chose to wear a column of white (the outfit I was going to wear on our bike ride until Greg suggested a change). I combined slim-fit white boyfriend jeans with a white cotton pullover, gold belt, white loafers, denim jacket and turquoise bag.
I was very comfortable and felt fresh and Summery. The neutral look is quite the change from some of the colourful outfits I’ve been wearing recently.
In the evening I swapped out the denim jacket for a sea foam leather jacket and a red clutch.
