koninginnedag en amsterdam


queens day in amsterdam. april 30th.
think...

orange everything
party boats
beer
cheap no-tax junk
endless ear-blasting euro-music
ridiculous hats
drunk
happiness
crowds
loempia
friends

to some, this may seem like an unusual holiday. but it's the unusual ones that are always the best.

while some choose to start getting obliterated at 10 o'clock in the morning, i woke up casually and wandered the negen straatjes met mom. i've never bought anything on queens day that i absolutely loved, but this one was different. there were some great vintage dresses out and about as well as some fantastic hats! (i snagged two.) can't wait to wear them in the sunshine.


later i met up with one of best friends, riet. we dangled outside her window on the weteringschans, ate delicious focaccia, and drank some heineken (in true queens day fashion).
