Amsterdam Photo Diary

I was prepared to have an unforgettable time in Amsterdam. What I wasn’t prepared for, however, was how hard I’d fall for this gorgeous city.

Every ounce of it is filled with beauty and charm… to call it magical would be an understatement. As we wandered the quaint streets and peaceful canals by bike, foot, and boat, just soaking it all in, I could truly picture this wonderful place being my home. Even as the streets were buzzing with people, there was an overwhelming sense of calm and peacefulness that seemed to swallow us whole with each passing moment.

Every meal was more incredible than the last, and the people. Oh my gosh, the people. Quite possibly the most pleasant I’ve ever encountered. They keep to themselves, yet aren’t afraid to look you in the eye and flash a genuine smile or give a friendly hello. If you ask for help, they’ll go out of their way to make sure you’re taken care of.

They have such a confidence and ease about them – in their personalities as well as their style. Fashion-wise, there’s a general sense of casual put-togetherness – as though each person is fully aware of what’s in style, but doesn’t feel the need to go over the top. They dress for both style and comfort, and they look incredible doing it. The people of Amsterdam carry themselves with a grace that I myself could only dream of exuding.

If you haven’t been to Amsterdam, go. Please, go.

Ohhh.. How I wish you’d open a Free People store in Amsterdam! That we would LOVE your clothes to be sold here is an understatement. It would be absolutely perfect! I hope one day that will happen..
