At the end of August I visited Amsterdam for the sixth (or seventh? I've lost count!) time. The first time I visited Amsterdam, a few years ago, I absolutely fell in love with it. Admittedly I fall in love with a lot of cities whenever I travel, but there something about Amsterdam that I can't help but romanticise and something about the city that just makes me feel at home and completely at ease. I just don't think I'll ever tire of visiting there.

Maybe it's because it was the first place that James and I holiday-ed together (it was covered in a dusting of snow at the time too) and have done multiple times since, but Amsterdam is truly special to me. I want to live in a pretty Amsterdam townhouse with a vintage ride with a colour to match my hair and a closet full of vintage frocks. Is that too much to ask for?

The weather whilst we were in the Dutch capital was absolutely wonderful, which meant a few days of sipping beers and strolling along the canals under the blazing hot sunshine. One of the days was a little too hot, dare I say, as it was incredibly humid but I am not complaining at all because it was a far better option than torrential rain, which I've experienced from Amsterdam in the past.

The warmer weather meant that my outfit choices from day-to-day were my typical floaty, vintage dresses, including this printed tunic from Tick Tock Vintage. It's made from such a light and sheer material that I had to wear a slip beneath it, which came in particularly useful when I visited a museum under UV lights and the entire dress ended up becoming see-through. Luckily, the slip beneath my dress became luminous rather than my underwear, which could have been a disaster. It's hard to pick up in the photos, but the tunic is laced with a gorgeous silver shimmer thread, which runs through in horizontal lines. It's definitely a new fave vintage piece of mine and I'm a little heartbroken that the weather is already too cold to continue wearing it.

Next summer, I'll be wearing it non-stop and who knows, maybe it'll accompany on another trip back to Amsterdam? Are there are cities that have a hold on your heart like Amsterdam does on mine?

  3. Amsterdam is my next ‘to go to’ place. I’m planning a trip for next spring and can not wait. I’m impressed you’ve been so many times, that has helped to confirm that it’ll be my next destination.

  8. I still haven't visited Amsterdam but I would love to someday. I love the printed tunic dress you are wearing. Good idea wearing a slip underneath it! It would have been very embarrassing showing off your undies in the museum!
