AMSTERDAM | NETHERLANDS

My second to last stop in Europe before heading home was Amsterdam. My friends and I stopped here for five days after Marrakech. When we arrived we ubered to our hotel (Budget Hotel Tourist Inn) in the downtown area of Amsterdam. Amsterdam was by far the most expensive hotel we paid for during our time in Europe and it was the size of a closet. I would recommend this hotel though since we were able to stay in the city and it was clean. We did have to carry all or our luggage up two flights of stairs on the tinniest staircase, which is apparently pretty common in Amsterdam since the buildings are so small and tall.

We bought tickets to the Anne Frank house months in advance which I recommend doing since it sells out so fast. It was interesting to see the house after reading her diary. I’d definitely recommend trying to go if you’re in Amsterdam. After we went to Pancakes next door which thankfully had a huge gluten free dutch pancake menu!! They were more like crepes but still super good.

A lot of the time we spent in Amsterdam was just walking around window shopping and seeing the sites. We passed by the Amsterdam tulip museum and went inside and looked around their gift shop where you can purchase a variety of different tulips to take home and plant.

This cute cafe/restaurant that we stumbled upon is called Pluk, we got smoothies that were AMAZING!! We actually went to get brunch at Pancakes a second time and found this place nearby. The street these two restaurants were on was filled with great little boutiques and some really good jewelry stores. I also recommend the jewelry store Nora that is located right next to the budget tourist inn, I bought a super cool pair of earrings I’ve been wearing nonstop.

One of my favorite things we did in Amsterdam was go to the Van Gough museum which was huge and full of all his work along with a cool exhibit on the influence Japanese art had on his art style. The famous I Amsterdam sign is located right next to this museum. Walking around we found a few awesome consignment shops, I’d say they were my favorite in all of Europe.

Amsterdam has a super cool and unique fashion vibe to it and I did my best to emulate it in my looks. This all white outfit includes wide leg white jeans from & other stories (exact pair linked below!), basic white tee from Zara, and a white jacket from I am gia. Shoes are Zara and purse is vintage Dior, my favorite vintage find in Italy!
