Amsterdam has to be my favourite place we went to. There was something about it, maybe it was because my expectations weren't to high because I really didn't know what it was going to be like but I fell in love with the city. We were only there for a day and a half unfortuntaly but I loved every minute of it. The houses, the canals, the people and parks were all so beautiful, it was hard to put down the camera. We arrived in the evening and as soon as we got to our hotel we went straight out.
Here is a little list of what we did while there.
- We took a walk through Vondelpark. Its such a big, beautiful park and had such a great energy with people everywhere, biking, running (very active people it seems) and friends gathered having fun. Defnitely recommend going to the park and just enjoy the atmosphere.
- Had dinner outside sitting by a canal. Obviously, this is a must while in Amsterdam.
- Walked around by the canals enjoying the beautiful building and then walked through the Red Light District. Quite an experience!
- The next morning we found and had breakfast at The Cold Pressed Juicery. So if you are looking for a raw, organic smoothie that is Instagram worthy, then you should go!
- We went to 2 museums, first the Van Gogh and then the Rijksmusem where you can also find the famous "I Amsterdam" (which you can see here)
- In between the museums, we had lunch which was a beautiful open faced sandwich at Restaurant Stedelijk.
- And we ended our time in Amsterdam by taking a canal tour. This is a must!
So if you plan on going to Amsterdam, maybe you can use this little break down of things we did to help you plan your trip. Yeah, so as you can tell, we really enjoyed every second and I can't wait to have an excuse to go back. Maybe I will just move there, you never know!!

Forever 21 trench, Anine Bing sweater (similar) and Zara top, jeans (similar), bag and sneakers (similar)
This is what I wore for our first day on our trip, while mostly driving to Amsterdam then also walking around in the evening. I think its also great to where layers in the evening because depending on what you are doing or where you go then you can remove or add a piece.
So I kept it quite simple with denim, white and beige. I like the muted colours together which make a muted look. And also comfortable for sitting in a vehicle and walking around for multiple hours. Actually my whole summer style is going to be very simple, but that's just the way I like it.
Stay tuned for tomorrow's photo bomb diary of Amsterdam...

Loving this care free, sexy summer look. If only I had her body then maybe I would have the confidence to wear something like this myself.

Only denim jacket and jeans, H&M sweater and Zara top, bag and sneakers
Here is a look from one of my first days in Denmark. We had a relaxing day with family enjoying Ribe, Denmark's oldest town and one of the most beautiful. It was actually voted as Europe's Best Big-Time Small Destination's of 2014 and for good reason. So if you planned to visit Denmark then you should most definitely make your way there.
For this cozy day, I dressed the part. Kept the outfit simple with some of my summer favourites, white and denim. Doesn't get much better and suits the minimalistic Scandinavian lifestyle.

My Personal Style Icon Elin Kling will no longer be blogging as she has been for the passed decade. She has been one of the blogging pioneers of the Blogosphere and even though I am sad to see her go and I am excited to see what she has in store for the future.
See her goodbye here.

Public School kimono, Marc by Marc Jacobs earring, Edun belt, Nike sneakers, Helmut Lang dress, 3.1 Phillip Lim bag, Toteme shorts, T by Alexander Wang bathing suit and stripe top and Sun Buddies sunglasses
Maybe it's because I am in Scandinavia right now but these super minimalistic pieces are catching my eye right now. And best of all is that they are all on sale right now. All my favourite shops are having their sale going on right now, so don't miss them. Here are links to a few....

Zara cardigan (similar), BDG via UO top, American Apparel jeans, Aritzia lace bra (similar), Olivia & Joy bag, & Other Stories shoes (similar), Adia Kibur bracelet and necklace is a heirloom from my grandmother
Denim is most definitely the most worn clothes in my wardrobe. I wouldn't be able to live without my denim jeans. There are so many styles and ways to wear them, you can never get bored of them. My most worn are my mid rise distressed skiing jeans for sure but every once in a while I change it up. Here I am wearing, what I like to call my "mom jeans", thick denim high rise jeans which I have cut the bottoms off them so there are ankle length and frayed. I love to mix different styles to create a unique look. Casual yet put together kind of looks!
UPDATE: We are back in Denmark with family after doing our road trip through some beautiful countries. We will now just visit with friends and family before heading to Sweden for Mid Summer celebrations.
