AMSTERDAM

Europeans in general are very fashion forward and more adventurous with their fashion. Visiting Amsterdam for the first time was a very surreal experience to say the least. I was Alice in a fascinating new world that I was ready to explore and take in.

Visiting Amsterdam in October can be hit or miss weather wise and so I prepared my outfits accordingly but for the most part the weather was gorgeous. The next few shots will chronicle my experience.

The first look was based on my walk and visit to the Rijksmuseum. I wore something that was comfortable and ready for the elements but most importantly I wanted my look to be on point for the venue. I love pairing gray with black and decided on gray being the dominant color.

This look was inspired by the colors found in this beautiful Alice in Wonderland themed garden. Black serves as the base for the majority of my outfits for this trip.

My third look was actually inspired by the fashionable Dutch men walking around sporting Nike joggers. I loved the way they dressed them up and also wore them very casually. This look I call it Navy Blue Boy.

Zaanse Schans! This historic little village is known for their well-preserved windmills and houses. It was a chilly morning coming in so I prepared with this look by keeping it color neutral and it was solely based on the historical fashion trends of this community.
