Amsterdam outfit in blue and maroon
* everything as above * handfelted brooch made by me

Three outfits from our Amsterdam trip. I went for a blue red and purple colour scheme for my ‘capsule wardrobe’ this time – just like the holiday wardrobe I made a video of. And its all very efficient: the purple top, the maroon skirt and the tartan Dave-made dress appear twice! Please excuse the half closed eyes in the middle picture – Dave’s tolerance for repeated picture taking in public spaces is extremely low, so as soon as I get one that looks vaguely acceptable I leave it at that. all three of these are first attempts actually.

    I think you're just one of the world's greatest wardrobe re-mixers there is!

    That's a great dress your lovely Dave made there! And it looks unexpectedly fabulous with jeans and sneakers. And the other outfits are lovely too!

    Nice layering there and, as always, I approve of the colourful nature of these looks. I also love the fact there's a bike in every photo. Very appropriate.

    I didn't even notice the half-closed eyes in the middle picture, I thought you were just going for a sultry look! 🙂

    I love that blue dress, it's so versatile and the way you layered it is adorable. Hope you had a great time!
