Apparently the period we are now in is called high summer, but after the last weeks we can all confirm that the Dutch weather sometimes has different ideas about that than we do. I’m happy I didn’t train too hard for a bikini body this year…
But there’s nothing more annoying than people who complain, so don’t worry, I’m not headed that way. Because weather or no weather, every year I start to get an itch around this time of year. The new collections are coming into the stores, the flyers are flying into my mailbox, and my bank card burns in my pocket… I want shopping, and good shopping!
Really, I hope for an Indian summer that will last until at least the end of October, but my closet is screaming for woolly skirts, warm sweaters, bodysuits with cool prints, and don’t forget those boots with precisely the right heel length. So forget those leftover sale items, there’s a reason they’re still hanging there!
Now you can of course do well in Amersfoort in the Langestraat at the well-known chains, but if you feel like wandering off the beaten path, then I’ve got a few recommendations for you. I bet you’ll be fall-proof in no time, and then feel free to hang out in your bikini for a bit of sun.
Fashion and lifestyle with all the hip brands under one roof. Think beautiful basics, quality, and if you’re going for the minimalistic look then this is the place for you. It’s a party to shop there thanks to the knowledgeable and super-friendly staff! Reuring
