Outfit Post: How To Wear Colour & Brighten Up A Rainy Day

Outfit Post Amsterdam

There is something so calming about wandering the streets and canals in Amsterdam, even in the rain we had on this day. I could have stepped out in my jeans and a jumper, but I decided to brighten up the morning with my amazing raindrop skirt from Lucy Teacup instead and when I saw a little old lady admiring my skirt on the ferry I knew I’d made a good choice! Here’s my tips on how to wear colour and brighten up a rainy day:

Papel Picado Mexican Bunting Necklace by Onetenzeroseven

I bought this skirt first at our Etsy Made Local fair at Christmas and everything else in the outfit was bought to match. I actually picked up these tights in M&S outlet for £1.75 and they match perfectly! When you’re looking for things to go with a certain piece of clothing you own, try taking the item with you when you go shopping or at least have a photo of it to hand.

These gorgeous clogs are also from Etsy and are by Lotta From Stockholm for a bargainous £56.50! I really struggled to find some shoes to go with this skirt, but I was determined not to wear it with black! I eventually picked out the pink raindrop to go with my pink hair too.

How to wear colour, colorful outfit ideas

The top was a last minute purchase the day before we went away to Amsterdam – I have a blue top that matches the skirt and tights, but I wanted something more colourful and less matchy. This top is from Wallis, where I wouldn’t normally shop, but the fit is lovely and it was only £16.

It was pure coincidence that the Papel Picado necklace from my new collection picks out most of the colours in this gorgeous skirt, but I love that it reintroduces the colours a little further up to balance the entire outfit and is a perfect example of how to wear colour. Jewellery, scarves and accessories are a great way to pick out colours in your outfit. I added a denim shirt as a cover up too.

Eating Out In Amsterdam: The Avocado Show

Best Places for Brunch in Amsterdam - The Avocado Show

A brunch spot entirely dedicated to the avocado? Well yes, we HAD to visit The Avocado Show in Amsterdam, for research purposes of course! Near the Heineken Experience and I Amsterdam sign, The Avocado Show is open for breakfast and lunch, but closes by 5pm so make sure you make your day time eating plans around this amazing avocado heaven!

We arrived around 11am and were seated straight away, but shortly after that the restaurant became extremely busy and there were a whole bunch of people waiting outside for a table at some point during the brunch period. There is a lovely vintage shop down the road if you’re stuck waiting for a while, though.

It might seem like an obvious thing to say, but just in case, if you don’t like avocado this is not the place for you. You might get away with ordering the nachos and not eating the avocado dips, but even the fresh smoothies have avocado in.

The Avocado Show Amsterdam

The food at The Avocado Show is hands down the prettiest food I’ve ever been served

I went for a chicken sandwich, which was a chunk of crusty bread topped with truffle mayonnaise, an entire avocado sliced up, several slices of chicken and topped with pea shoots and edible flowers. Anywhere that serves pea shoots instead of standard salad gets an A++ from me!
Stu ordered a whole avocado cut in half and stuffed with hummus – it was topped with various spices and edible flowers and was an excellent taste combination. We got some nachos on the side that were basic, but covered in tasty cheese and came with a rich avocado dip.

Drinks wise Stu chose an avocado based smoothie, which was deliciously creamy and contained no milk. I chose an espresso, which you’ll be glad to hear contained no avocado!! They also have fresh orange juice, made in house.

The restaurant seating of dreams

I loved the decor too – one wall was painted mint green with pink booth seating – the restaurant seating of dreams! The wall opposite was a textured grey that looked like an old industrial wall. I loved the effect, but it looked like it took ages to create so I’ll probably avoid trying that at home. Other areas were created with floor to ceiling greenery and there were cute cacti and green potted plants on every table. The decor in the bathroom was gorgeous too, they’ve really put care and attention into the place.
