Breezing By

(Of Two Minds dress, Mango leather jacket, Marie Turnor bag, ECCO shoes)

Amsterdam may be one of the most romantic cities I've ever visited. The endless canals, beautiful people on bikes, and tiny cafes make the place all the more dreamy. I rushed out of the hotel to overlook the canals in a flowing snakeskin dress. Pretty daring, considering it was very cold, but I thought, why the hell not! I wanted to be a little bit dressy for our evening out for dinner. Also, I wore my extra comfy ECCO heels. This classic pair will always be one of my travel essentials. Never do my feet get tired in these. They're chic and still perfect for the "on your feet constantly" European lifestyle. Take me back to Amsterdam...
