I’m in The Netherlands again which means I get to hang out with my friend Greetje. We like to wander around and explore new towns and on this day we ventured out to Alkmaar.
Alkmaar is known for its cheese market but is also a quaint town with canals, lots of cute little streets and fun boutiques to match.
As you can see the sun was out which means everyone goes outdoors so sit on one of the many beautiful outdoor terraces in Alkmaar. It was also a great opportunity to wear my new hat.
Just by accident Greetje was dressed in the same colors as me: red, white and blue.
You may recognise the top as i bought this in Australia a few years ago. I love it when something old goes perfectly with something new. This striped skirt from Stella Carakasi is right up my alley. The Fly London sandals (similar) are still a favorite for city trips. (for many more great options for good arch support shoes go here)
Of course we did some shopping too. I bought this fabulous dress. It’s a reversible dress that you can wear both ways and I especially love the right version.
The striped fabric comes in pants too which I wore on another day while visiting a market in Haarlem. It works really well with my asymmetrical knitted top (similar) and paired with my Antelope sandals.
Here is another knitted high-low top that I wore paired with my older asymettrical booties from Antelope.
