Red In Amsterdam

What I Wore: Turtleneck top – Zara (similar here), Skirt – Urban Outfitters, Boots – DUO, Bag – Nica, Coat – c/o River Island 

Contrary to what might usually spring to mind when the words ‘red’ and ‘Amsterdam’ are put in the same sentence, this post is all about my new favourite turtleneck/Love Actually fave top and the tiniest of introductions in to my little trip to Amsterdam with Carrie, Kristabel, Lucy and Olivia (aka Five). An early wake-up and flight with KLM was soothed by a gentle Blacklane drive to the airport, after which I hardly had the chance to get nervous about flying (I still did) as it took us just 45 minutes! I’ve been to Amsterdam once before a couple years ago, but didn’t feel like I had seen everything there was to see…

Our first day was spent getting to know the surrounding area of the hotel, which was perfectly central and chowing down on some seriously amazing food (more about that in my city guide!). I had a super quick outfit change to refresh when we arrived at the hotel, and I can honestly say this is one of my favourite winter outfits ever. I know I know, there’s a fair bit of thigh on show but I honestly didn’t feel the chill thanks to the high boots and long coat duo. It’s certainly one of my more ’70s-inspired looks, and it somehow seemed fitting to be wearing it while traipsing around a beautiful European city. I can’t wait to show Amsterdam in all its glory in the next few posts, but for now this one is all about my red top- anyone else living in turtlenecks at the mo? ; ) x
