Travel With Us: AMSTERDAM

a2

 

Katarina, A Style Journey

(Affiliate) Amsterdam has never been on my must-see list, but is officially one of my favorite weekend-getaway cities! Growing food scene, great shopping (including vintage!) and just in general the casual vibe, biking around without the pressure to see hundreds of attractions on every single corner.

Travel with us to Amsterdam…

a1

WHERE TO STAY

We stayed at Conscious Hotel Westerpark, perfectly located in the gorgeous Westerpark – a stone’s throw from the city centrum. So close that you can walk or bike to the attractions yet enough isolated from the city ‘chaos’.

And no, this is not a all hippy spot, given the name. The Conscious Hotels strive to be as green, sustainable and eco-friendly as possible, but you won’t even notice some of their sustainable decisions because they’re being kind to the planet in the background of their clean and minimalistic design.

Book Conscious Hotel Westerpark HERE.

YOU MIGHT ALSO LIKE: Soho House Amsterdam, The Dylan, The Hoxton and Pulitzer Amsterdam.

a3

Toki

BREAKFAST/LUNCH

My absolute favorite spot in the city for a late breakfast/lunch is Toki. Do not leave the city without hanging out in this perfectly designed café, that probably serves the best breakfast as well as coffees and cakes!

Another must-try, is the vegan Yerba (which is also a perfect dinner-spot!). No more need to be said than: Check out their Weekend Brunch Menu.

ALSO TRY: SLA, Little Collins, The Lobby at Hotel V, Ted’s. and The Avokado Show.

a4

Yerba

THE COFFEE-BREAK

Besides Toki, Screaming Beans really knows their coffee. So does Locals Coffee.

LOW BLOOD SUGAR

In the need for some sweets? The cakes at Toki and De Drie Graefjes, cookies at Van Stapele and ice cream at Ijscuypje.

a5

Left: Cafe Restaurant and right: Foodhallen

DINNER

1. FOODHALLEN: If you can’t find anything you like at Foodhallen you’re simply just not in the food-mood. Amsterdam’s food hall has everything from juicy burgers and tacos to dumplings (which I Loved! Try one of their mixed boxes) and meze.

And do NOT miss out on the G&T bar! 

2. DE JAPANNER: Make sure to reserve a table at this Japanese favorite! Taste a bit of everything, including the drinks.

3. BAZAR: Eat super tasty (and enormous) plates from the Middle East and North Africa in bazar surroundings. AND the prices are pretty good as well.

4. CAFE RESTAURANT: Brasserie style dishes served in a restored pump house near Westerpark. Just as good for a quick lunch as it is for a dinner with friends.

5. LA PERLA: In the mood for some Pizza? We’re always in the mood – as long as it’s good! And the one at La Perla is said to be the best one. Not to mention the simple yet cozy and casual corner spot.

a6

Glou Glou

WHERE TO DRINK

Since we’re not the that party-people anymore, we prefer them bars, and there are some bars really worth visiting while in Amster. Our favorite though is Glou Glou. Amazing atmosphere and even better wine!

ALSO TRY: Bar Bukowski, Vesper and Pulitzer’s Bar.

WHERE TO SHOP

The shopping scene in Amsterdam will definitely surprise. Besides the giant malls as Magna Plaza and De Bijenkorf, and the classic shopping streets Kalverstraat (high-street) and PC Hooftstraat (high-end), these ones are worth the visit:

a7

FASHION: Van Ravenstein and X-Bank.

VINTAGE: Episode, Rumors Vintage, Marbles Vintage, Bis Vintage, La Doyenne Vintage and L’Étoile de Saint Honoré.

BEAUTY: Skins cosmetics.

INTERIOR: Droog and Mooi.

FLEA MARKETS: Albert Cuyp Market and Waterlooplein.

YOU MIGHT ALSO LIKE: 5 Must-visit Amsterdam Vintage Stores

Left: Botanical Garden

WHAT TO SEE

Besides all the beautiful streets and canals while biking, these 5 spots are musts:

1.  THE RIJKSMUSEUM

2. VAN GOGH MUSEUM

3. VONDELPARK STROLL

4. VAN LOON MUSEUMV

5. BOTANICAL GARDEN

a9

THE MUST-DO

Bike by the canals at night. From pre-dinner drinks to dinner to a late night walk in the park and back home. You’ll understand why.

BLAZERS

 

Katarina, A Style Journey

(Affiliate) If there is one garment I simply just can’t get enough of it’s the blazer. I’m not sure how many I own. Especially when I count all the blazers I bought to my boyfriend – so I could wear them them as well ofc – into the math.

There are a few and more will it be; there is no garment more wearable, transformable and reliable. Which is why I’ve gathered 7 news we all need in our AW-wardrobes ASAP:

Double-breasted blazer from Joseph, burgundy single-breasted blazer from Acne Studios, structured blazer from Balenciaga, grey single-breasted blazer from Lemaire, double-breasted check blazer from Masscob, single-breasted brown blazer from Lemaire, double-breasted twill blazer from MM6 Maison Margiela, single-breasted twill blazer from Joseph, burgundy single-breasted blazer from Victoria Beckham and double-breasted blazer from Acne Studios.

Beauty Tips: THIS SECTION MAKES IT EASIER TO MAKE A NATURAL CHOICE

b11

 

Caroline, A Style Journey

(Affiliate) Finding it hard to choose natural and ecological products? Well, you’re not alone! Personally, we’ve identified two main challenges.

1. FINDING THE PRODUCTS

Yes, we’ve spent a fair share of time trying to understand the writing at the back of the products – and still being just about 80% sure we’ve ended up with an actually natural product on our way home.

2. FINDING THE PRODUCTS THAT ACTUALLY WORKS

Because: Until a few years ago we’ve been so disappointed with some of the natural products.

…but! Times has changed and some of our favorite products today are both natural and ecological and we recently discovered that Kicks (one of our favorite online beauty stores) now has a whole new and ecological alternative in their menu! Which we love, love love and therefore had to share.

Below we’ve gathered a little wish-list of some of the most exciting looking natural products – and you can check out your favorite products HERE.

The Catch: 2-IN-1 WOOL DREAM

 

Cos

 

Katarina, A Style Journey

(Affiliate) We rarely feel the instant need of getting our hands on a piece; but when we do, we need it NOW. And we mean NOW.

That’s how we’re feeling about this 2-in-1 wool dream from COS – I mean can we get it fast enough?! I don’t think so, and this is why:

1. IT’S A 2-IN-1

Perfect fall dress AND skirt in the same garment. Can it get any better?

2. THE SHAPE

…well it can; it’s actually a good looking AND functional 2 in 1. Not only a speaker but a doer!

3. THE COLOR

This forest green is simply just a fall dream!

Do I need to continue? No, but one last thing: It’s THE travel garment no.1 this AW season. Super wearable and an outfit savior.

ASJ Favorites: 3 BRANDS TO WATCH

Watch

 

Katarina, A Style Journey

(Affiliate) We LOVE browsing our online favorites – it’s just extremely satisfying, not to mention inspiring! But what we love even more about it is when we discover up and coming brands we haven’t seen much of before.

And you know what? We’ve just discovered 3 brands we would recommend you to keep an extra eye on AND check off when you’re browsing your favorites online!

1. MARINE SERRE

Marine Serre won the LVMH Young Fashion Designer Prize in 2017 – which we totally get. Her garments is THE perfect mix of futuristic and feminine silhouettes and edgy sportswear. Not to mention she know how to do those statement details!

Dressbalaclava, turtleneck, bag and skirt from Marine Serre.

2. SIES MARJAN

Lunched during New York fashion week in 2016, Sies Marjan has come a long way (loved by Queen B!). His clothes scream texture and fabric knowledge and are the perfect touches to a look. Modern touches do be specific. And our favorite at the moment, a pair of white boots!

Boots, shawl, skirt and heels from Sies Marjan.

3. SOPHIA KOKOSALAKI

Sophia Kokosalaki brings sophisticated Greek jewelry to the people – all with a delicate, minimalistic undertone. What we love is how simple her pieces are yet they take so much attention thanks to the perfect twists in every piece. AND she knows how to combine gold and silver – which we’re obsessed over ATM.

Earrings, necklace, earrings and bracelet from Sophia Kokosalaki.

Quick Fix: BYE DRY LIPS, HI (3 STEPS TO) PERFECT ONES

Tumblr pf9btzmakf1vstnjqo8 1280

 

Caroline, A Style Journey

(Affiliate) Anyone else struggling with dry, horrible lips these days? There’s something about dry lips (you know when you get propper red and you lips flake up?) that really gets on our nerves. And not just that – yes, we have some well thought through arguments on this one – dry lips also destroy every hope we have of pulling off the perfect lipstick.

Luckily we have some go-to-products that saves us season after season. Here you go:

 100127169

Lip scrub from Dior

SCRUB: This scrub removes dry skin and melts nicely into our lips.

1063603 in xl

Lip balm from Kjaer Weis

BALM: After a scrub we need to soften up the remains.

130120 CLARINS 07 VENTE ECLAT MINUTE EMBELLISEUR LEVRES TEINTE 0

Lipgloss from Clarins

GLOSS: If there’s one thing we avoid when we’re done with our day of softening our lips, it’s adding dry, mate lipstick. We take no chances these days and stays as glossy as we can get. This classic from Clarins is perfection!

Katarina,  A Style Journey

I’m definitely bitten by the fall-shopping-fashion-bill; feeling the need to empty my whole wardrobe and fill it with news for the comping AW-season.

But no worries, I won’t be giving all my clothes away. There is no need to when there are so many good catches out there that are not ment to replace my existing wardrobe, but complement and lift it! We’re not speaking about just any catches we’re speaking about the high street ones; the ones that doesn’t empty your wallet yet make such a huge difference!

… and this Leo faux fur from Mango is just what we’re talking about. price on fleek, timeless, wearable (just as good for day as night) AND it’s the perfect complement, lifting any look from 0 to 10 in a sec!

The Obsession: ‘LUXE’ TRACKSUITS

T2

 

 

Katarina, A Style Journey

(Affiliate) What I really love about autumn is how it allows you to dress cozy; oversized, layered, loose and comfy. BUT not in a ‘I don’t care how I look way’, on the contrary! In a luxe and sophisticated but still casual way; looking like you haven’t tried too hard yet you look so cool and comfortable.

This AW-season there is no trend better for the job than the tracksuit. We’re NOT speaking about the uber sporty ones – they’re great for their purpose – we’re obsessing over the more ‘luxe’ ones. No luxe, like pricey. Think delicate colors, good materials, timeless shapes and simple yet meaningful details. In other words; a super wearable tracksuit, that’s just as good with coats and boots as it is with a puffer jacket and sneakers.

Shop our favorites directly through the links below:

 

Beige track pants and sweater ERES, blue track pants and hoodie from Baserange, tracksuit from Olivia Von Halle, grey track pants and hoodie from Days Like This, black track pants and sweater from H&M, white track pants and sweater from Zara, red track pants and turtleneck from Allude, black track pants and hoodie from Valentino, brown track pants and sweater from Balenciaga and grey track pants and sweater from Raey.

Trend Spotting: THE BAG ‘NECKLACE’

 

Mic

 

Katarina, A Style Journey

(Affiliate) There is no doubt how we’ll be wearing our mini bags the coming months: Like a necklace.

We first eyed the styling trend during the Jacquemus AW18 – styled with everything from turtlenecks and leather pants, to more elegant pieces like light knit delicate skirts. Lately we’ve been spotting the ‘necklace’ bags everywhere and on everyone – both ladies and gentlemen. Fashion shows (lates at the Gabriela Hearst SS19 show), streets, SOME and magazines.

…and I think I know why we love it so much (the many reasons ofc). Not only is it super practical speaking in terms of travels and night outs, it’s super wearable. Perfect for both day and night, for casual looks or more dressed up ones. But what we maybe love the most, is the perfectly laid-back touch it adds to any look; making it look like you did’t try too much, yet making you look SO on point.

Gathered below are 5 bags made for the mission: 

 

Pouch bag from Hunting Season, mini bag from Victoria Beckham,  mini bag from Mango, mini bag from Mango and mini bag from Jacquemus and

Monthly Wish List: SEPTEMBER

Wish

 

Katarina Petrovic

(Affiliate) I’m not if it’s just the fall arrival or the post-FW that still got me, but lately I’m all into the comfy, practical, laid back – and sometimes super sporty – dressing yet still with a sophisticated touch. As close to anti-fashion as I’ve ever been on an everyday basis.

I’m talking about high fashion me meeting me at the gym; wearing tights and heels, oversized x5 and hybrid garments – ment for both a hike and a night out (see the Marine Serre turtleneck). This obsession – or should I maybe say laziness? – definitely reflects my wish list this month… as you might see:

Turtleneck from Marine Serre, faux-fur coat from Kwaidan Editions, tights from Rick Owens, boots from Sies Marjan, slip dress from Georgia Alice, bag from Mansur Gavriel, skirt from Marine Serre, leather pants from Nili Lotan, necklace from Sophia Kokosalaki, dress from Chloé, turtleneck from Calvin Klein, blazer from MASSCOB and sunglasses from Celine.

The Fashion Editor’s Favorites: 10 BLACK BAG OBSESSIONS

Bags

 

Katarina, A Style Journey

(Affiliate) There is no secret I love black more than a average person. It’s simply just a part of me speaking in terms of style. More than a part actually, it’s me.

Why you ask? Well, I could go on forever, but to keep it short, black – in my opinion – is probably the most challenging to get right, styling wise, yet the most powerful and sophisticated one when done right.

Anyways…What’s been on my mind the last couple of weeks is investing in a new black companion. A new black bag to be specific – and of course I have some obsessions. 10 to be honest:

Leather box bag from Rejina Pyo, Croc-effect leather tote Gu_de, feather-embellished leather tote from Loeffler Randall, mini satin tote from Elizabeth and James, top handle leather bag from Lemaire, satin tote from Theory, whipstitched leather tote from Ulla Johnson, basketball shaped tote bag from Guccileather cross-body bag from Lemaire and leather-trimmed satin tote from Elizabeth and James.

(Affiliate) We know we’re talking A LOT about fall these days; knit we want to live in, favorite fall coats, hair-trends for fall. Not to mention amazing fall getaways.

But who can blame us? There are so many good things about fall! I mean, is there a more cozy season – both everyday and fashion wise?

To top – and maybe stop? – all our fall talk, here are 5 (fashion) reasons why we’re SO ready for fall.

1. COATS

We want them long, gladly double breasted and with a ‘statement’ detail – a XL collar, oversized fit, visible buttons…

Alpaca-blend coat from Joseph, wool-blend coat from Joseph and sleeping bag coat from Norma Kamali.

2. KNIT PIECES

Sets, skirts, dresses, sweaters; it doesn’t matter as long as it’s knitted!

Frayed midi skirt from Jil Sander, knit dress from Jacquemus and turtleneck from Holiday Boileau.

3. RAINBOOTS

No, not only the classics. There are so many modern versions (see Celine) of the uber practical shoe and we’re definitely inspired to style them with more than just our active wear.

4. LEATHER GARMENTS

… and this fall we want our leather garments to be more than black. We want them in beige, brown, burgundy and white!

Faux leather pants from Stella McCartney, coat from Koché and leather shirt from Nanushka.

5. BOOTS

As much as we love open shoes and sandals, we LOVE how killer boots – both short and high – stand out and make a look. But ATM we don’t want the classics, we want the classics with a twist.

Contrast tip boots from Givenchy, over-the-knee boots from Loewe and high heeled chelsea boots from Marques’Almeida.

(Affiliate) We all have that one thing we just can’t travel without. Like really can’t. I don’t think we have to go into details about the feeling – or should we say feelings? – you get when thinking you’ve forgotten that one thing. Or in worst case you actually forgot it…

But when it’s in close distance when traveling, there is few feelings like it. That one thing usually saves you when you’re in the need; either if it’s a gadget, a product or a garment. We all simply have that magic must-bring and first out in our new column to share what she Never Travels Without is STYLBY Editor, Elina Grothèn.

Beoplay 4 earphones from Bang & Olufsen.

WHICH ONE THING DO YOU NEVER TRAVEL WITHOUT? LIKE NEVER.

I actually once started crying when I noticed that I had forgotten my earphones during a flight. So from that day I’ve never ever traveled without them again.

WHICH BRAND IS YOUR MUST-BRING PRODUCT FROM ATM? AND HAS IT BEEN YOUR TRAVEL COMPANION FOR LONG OR IS IT A NEW OBSESSION?

Since a year back I’ve been using the best earphones from Beoplay (Beoplay 4) with noise cancellation. They are a bit pricy but THEY’RE A DREAM! Specially since I love to sleep on the plane and they’re cancelling out every annoying sound. Nowdays, I usually fall asleep before we leave the ground.”

DO YOU HAVE A ‘SECRET’ WAY TO USE YOUR MUST-BRING?

No, but I would recommend to keep the ear-phones in the pouch that comes with the purchase, when they’re not in use – otherwise it’s easy to loose the silicone ear tips!
