stylerarebit.comEarlier this month me and my boyfriend took a quick trip to Amsterdam for the weekend and I wanted to share a few snaps on here, as it was so beautiful! It was our first holiday together and even though it was only four days, we saw a lot of the city and ate a lot of chocolate waffles too (no space cakes though, promise).

The main colour scheme was orange which sounds awful but it was actually really lovely. Amsterdam as a whole is so creative, you pick up a spoon and its fascinating but it so inspiring. I also noticed that EVERYONE wears trainers, probably because so many people cycle but I felt silly getting dressed up as it was so chilled.

It was full of little bridges, beautiful flowers and trees and it was so sunny that day. I think our favourite place was the flower market though, it was beautiful and surrounded by lots of cute shops and cafes. We managed to squeeze in two exhibitions too the Banksy one, which was incredible and Body Worlds which was just unbelievable. I would recommend both.

This is the biggest trend of the season and its emblazoned on pretty much everything. The heavy floral embroidery has trickled down from the catwalk and is the easiest way to bring your wardrobe up to date. In light of this I’ve picked a few affordable pieces from the high street to get you inspired.

small-coverIn honour of StyleRarebit.com turning 2, I’ve made a video looking at my favourite posts and memories so far. I still can’t quite believe how long I’ve been doing this for now but it’s become something I really enjoy and something which I hope you enjoy reading.

Apologies in advance though for that really annoying piece of hair, if you subscribe I promise I’ll make an effort with some curling irons next time…
