Amsterdam

Tuesday, October 11, 2011


This is my third time in Amsterdam, and somehow, going there never gets old. One summer, in high school, I lived two hours outside of the city to play tennis. We frequently went into Amsterdam to shop/ hit up the tourist attractions. Amsterdam ranks pretty high on my list of favorite places in the world. 

 Rag and Bone sunglasses, Alexa Chung for Madewell t-shirt, Jewelmint necklace, Comptoir Des Cottonniers cardigan (similar style here), Current Elliott jeans (similar style here), Superga shoes , Proenza Schouler bag


The view from our hotel. 


One of the things I remember most distinctly about Amsterdam is there rockin' pancakes. When I say rockin', I really mean absolutely fantabulous. I can't get enough of them. I could literally eat pancakes there three times a day. SO GOOD. 



 Poffertjes; little pancake like donut thingies that are really heaven in a bite. Oh, I forgot to mention that they're usually smothered in powdered sugar and served with whipped cream or ice cream. UM HELLO, AMAZING. Please bring these recipes to NYC and open up a restaurant right under my apartment. Screw my lobby, put it right in there puh-lease.



We landed, dropped off our stuff, and headed out into the streets. I was too excited to do anything else. Exhaustion? I don't even know what that word means. 

We walked around just perusing the shops; planning our attack for the days to come. A shopping must is this INCREDIBLE vintage store called Episode. It's located on Berenstraat,  #1. It had the best stuff. I picked up this incredible jacket that had this huge faux fur collar, it fit me like a glove. Too bad it was a little worn and the parents were remotely disgusted. Oh well. I'm currently looking for a replica but have yet to find one as sweet. One day, one day. 

Highlights of that day include: 

1) Pancakes
2) Pancakes
3) Poffertjes
4) Pancakes 
5) Battling tiredness to shop till we literally dropped (I'm a trooper).

The pancakes and waffles in Amsterdam are to die for. I'm pretty sure that I gained at least five pounds during my trip this past summer.

PS -- I'm also pretty sure that I own the same scarf as your mom. From Urban Outfitters, several years old?
