Greetings from Amsterdam!

2012 October 3
by eat.sleep.wear.













I am happy to be writing from the beautiful city of Amsterdam this morning. I have been spending some time along the canals with my loves Sonia, Claire, and Christina working on a special project that I can’t wait to share with you this week! What made the trip even more special is my love of Holland. Being Dutch, getting to visit the place I have spent so many summers as a child is so special to me. Watching the bikes whiz past and seeing people sip coffees at the open air cafes are familiar sights. The light has been incredibly beautiful as the leaves are changing and the sun sets on the cobble stone streets. Here are some snap shots of my first day in the city. Stay tuned or a full recap of this outfit and follow along my Amsterdam adventures on twitter + instagram.

    The photos you have shared so far are so great! I can not wait to see more and learn what the mystery project is. The outfit you are wearing in this post looks stylish and has your regular flare to it but it also looks comfortable for walking, biking, traveling. When you are traveling do you have any special strategy for how to dress and does Holland inspire your dressing in any specific way?

      I always check the weather before I leave and plan accordingly. I also knew I would be doing alot of walking and possibly biking this particular day so I need to be stylish but practical. I think a little planning goes a long way! xo, Kim
