Amsterdam recap, couple of months late



So, this summer I went to Amsterdam.

2009.08.01 Amstardam 095s

And I saw great things, and wore cool outfits and shopped amazing clothes. And I failed to blog about it, other than this sorry little excuse for a post. For that, I'm sorry dear readers. Just to make something clear though: I never feel like I "have to" blog about something, and quite frankly, if I ever started feeling like that, it would be the end of my blogging adventures. I could never function under pressure. However, this blog still is the place where I like to document my shopping and style adventures, and by not writing a proper post of my Amsterdam trip, I felt like something was missing.

I hope the saying better late than ever is true.



Time for you to meet my dutch shopping treasures:


1. White sundress with black doodles, ONLY.
2. Checkered sundress, H&M.
3. White t-shirt with girl sketch. H&M.
4. Multicoloured panties and tights, H&M.
5. Khaki tulip skirt, H&M.
6. Fuchsia bikini bottoms, Calzedonia.
7. Tan leather and snakeskin print sandals, Bronx.

8. Multicoloured trainers, Adidas.



Yeah, I know. We have H&M here too. But I just couldn't stay away from them! Lucky me, the Dutch were having some serious sales. That means almost everything was half price off, including the two dresses (the white one was like 5
) and the Bronx sandals. And, on top of that, I got the crazy-colour Adidas high-tops for 34,00€ down from 90,00€

Ok, that doesn't feel too guilt-inducing to write down. See mum? I'm a responsible shopper.

Why am I posting all this now? Well, I'd say closure... before leaving for yet another trip abroad!
This time, I'll be visiting this wonderful little gal in the UK:
