Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands and the city I recently moved to. Living there was something I’d wanted for a long, long time. Before I moved to Amsterdam, I came there quite a lot. And each time, I loved it. I still do. Why? It’s a unique city, with beautiful canals, many cute crooked houses, art, open minded people and it doesn’t get boring at all. The final summer days in the city have been wonderful. I wore an outfit by Boohoo the other day. This skirt in combination with the off shoulder top, I just love it so much. The shoes are also from Boohoo. They have a huge collection of footwear. In collaboration with them, I’m sharing some tips on Amsterdam. Hope you all like it!
Favorite street: Haarlemmerstraat. This street is filled with cute stores, boutiques and cool cafes/bars. So a street that has it all. It’s also not as crowded as other streets, which is a plus as well I must say.
Places to go for food: Going for lunch is something I love doing, any luckily Amsterdam has a lot of good spots. Some of my favorites are: Vinnies, Pluk, Metropolitain and Betty Blue. All of them are worth a visit! If you’re looking for a place to get some ice cream, go to Ijscuypje. They have multiple locations. The pictures from above where shot in front of the one at the Prinsengracht.
Favorite parks/nature spots: Of course, the vondelpark is one of my favorite parks. During the summer, it’s just the perfect place to go and relax for a while. In Amsterdam there’s a botanical garden called Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam. You’ll find the most incredible flowers and plants there, as well as a lot of butterflies.
A new thing to visit in the city: Something that open recently is the swing at the A’DAM LOOKOUT. It’s a big building, across the central station (the IJ-zijde). On top of the building, they placed a swing so you can have a good view over the city, while swinging over the edge of the building. Sounds quite exciting right?
Hope you all liked this outfit and post! If you ever have any questions about Amsterdam, let me know and I’d be happy to help out!
