My Amsterdam style

Last week, I posted about the fabulous clothes in Warehouse that are perfect for city breaks and upcoming holidays. Warehouse were kind enough to let me pick some items to wear on my little break to Amsterdam. I knew the weather would be much the same as home- warmish with a chance of rain! Layers were essential so I opted for a peasant style shirt, £35 that seemed very traditionally Dutch with the pattern on it. This has sleeves to the elbow which is great for the weather and I loved the tie up detail on the chest. I layered The Duster Coat, £60 on top. This was the perfect "throw on" number and it kept me warm but not over-heated. I would highly recommend a duster jacket for this time of year- I know I'm going to get so much wear out of mine. Dark colours are also great for a city break- often you are on the go all day so any marks or spills won't be noticeable. I also wore the Girlfriend jeans, £40. I find it hard to find jeans to fit my big hips and long legs but these are perfect! They are so comfortable and I know they will look great with heels/sandals for night time. Finally, I opted to wear the Sporty Gladiator, £38 with my outfit. These are the MOST COMFORTABLE sandals ever. If you have narrow feet and small ankles, you need to invest. I walked the length of Amsterdam in these with no blisters or sore feet. I could not encourage you to buy these more if you are going on holiday- plus they look super chic with most outfits.

Thank you Warehouse for my outfit. Make sure to check out all of their new season drops at
