Wearing orange in the Netherlands

Orange is one of the hottest colours this year, and was popping up all over at Amsterdam Fashion Week, on the runways and on the streets. I fell in love with this orange feather boa on sale at Zara in Amsterdam, it shows off my love for the colour and this country.

I styled the boa with a leopard print sweater, and an oversized key necklace from Forever XXI. The orange definitely adds pop to the neutral colours in the print.

I’m also wearing a gold watch and gold jeans from Joe Fresh.

I love how I can wear this boa loose as a quirky stole. It would look very dramatic with an evening dress and a chic undo. My booties were another find in Dam Square, but yesterday I got caught in a cobblestone and nearly face planted! Lesson learned: cobblestones + four inch heels + a few glasses of wine = danger!

I finally got a picture with the sign and no tourists. Every time I take the train from Utrecht to Amsterdam, I fall more and more in love with the city.

Thank you Hanna Downs for the photographs.
