{Weekending}

With a very busy travel itinerary on the horizon, we are soaking up this relaxing weekend at home in Amsterdam. This morning we slept in, spent a lazy morning laying in bed drinking coffee and reading (well, I was lazy, Corey went for a run...), and then headed out for brunch at one of our favorite spots, Le Pain Quotidien. The best part of the morning was running into our good friends Carly and Marcus (who are moving to Portland in a few weeks!) - so brunch for two turned into brunch for four, and it was just perfect! 
Another plus for this wonderful Saturday is that temperatures are back above freezing (for now), so I took advantage and left my big black puffer at home and wore my favorite leather jacket instead. Paired with a cozy sweater and my wedge sneakers, it was the perfect match for a put-together yet casual weekend look, if I do say so myself! What do you think about wedged sneakers? Would you wear them? They're all the rage here in Europe!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!

  1. sounds perfect. PQs (Le Pain Quotidien) is my favourite breakfast place here-prob due to the location as it is right at the marina-my friends and I go every weekend after a run (creatures of habit!). x

  3. I love your hat!! It was warm in England today as well, I got to wear a tweed jacket instead of a coat- win! x

  4. Adorable! I've been browsing Isabel Marant, ASH, and Zara for some wedge sneakers, but I can't decide if I should take the plunge or not. I feel like they'd be perfect for some chic, comfortable shoes for walking around Madrid, but I'm worried the high tops might cut off my legs. Do you find they're flattering/comfortable?

    I love your style. Perfect combination of chic and functional :)

  5. Since you asked... I don't know how crazy I am about the sneakers. I LOVE your style and I think you always look fabulous so these shoes couldn't possibly make you look anything but great. I just think sneakers are sneakers. Keep em flat.

  6. If you haven't already tried the mint lemonade at Le Pain, do it. My favorite thing on the menu!

    It's funny you asked about the wedge sneakers because I had just had that conversation with my roommate about two minutes before I read this. I never really liked them because it never made sense (and still doesn't to me) to turn a sneaker into a fashion shoe, but now I see them on Pinterest and blogs all the time and I can't help but kind of like them! I want to try them, but I just can't justify them to myself. I like how you wore them though!

  15. I don't know if I could pull off the wedged sneaker. I think my legs are too stumpy. However, I think they look super cute for you!
