After spending four perfect days on Gran Canaria, I am back home in Amsterdam for a few days before I leave again. At first I thought this island would be similar to Ibiza in terms of nature and architecture, but I was wrong. It is completely different – which is kind of logical concerning the islands are not exactly swim distance away from each other – and both have their very own beauty.
Even though I only got to spend four days in Gran Canaria, I got to see a few of its little gems. My very favorite was the old town of Agüimes, a super colorful little place with an amazing amount of workplaces to discover.
Also, what better place to finally try wearing a cropped top than a place where nobody really knows me, Maspalomas in Gran Canaria?
After three full days at home, I find myself on a Spanish Island again, this time it is Gran Canaria, which is a completely different story than Ibiza. I am here because of Moda Cálida – aka Swimwear Fashion Week – but mostly to discover this place and its beautiful dunes of sand and picturesque little villages.
I will keep things short for today, since I am staying in this beautiful, but gigantic hotel and it takes me about 10-15 minutes to get to breakfast. Better start walking!
This is how I roll each and every single day no matter what I am wearing – whether it is silver pants and sneakers or a fancy dress – or what the weather does. I do not have a car (my boyfriend does though and I am free to use it but I never do) and I rarely take public transport. Bikes are everywhere in Amsterdam, there is actually even more bikes than people if I am correct, and it is the quickest way to get around.
This outfit in my opinion totally reflects what a pair of reflecting sunglasses can do. This ensemble would be totally boring without the sunglasses. I mean, the ripped parts in the boyfriend jeans give it a little boost, but the real boost is coming from the spectacular spectacles.
Rag & Bone sunglasses, Samsoe & Samsoe jumper, Acne jeans, Tommy Hilfiger shoes and Michael Kors watch.
What the Dutch do when the sun starts shining? Visit their ugly beaches. Our beaches will probably never make it into the top-10 prettiest beaches in the world, though I love to spend my days there. The endless view the sea has to offer, compared to the big buildings in Amsterdam is just so relaxing.
Samsoe & Samsoe shirt, vintage shorts and Céline sunglasses.
