Thrilled to finally be back home today after traveling for the past few weeks, I’m eager to share some a lot more snaps from my trip. If you saw my previous articles here and here or follow me on instagram, you know my time away began in the Netherlands which is the undisputed tulip capital of the world—particularly this time of year. Amsterdam is one of my favorite cities in the world, but I’d never had the chance to check out the Keukenhof gardens outside the city before which are only open mid-March to mid-May. As you can see above, there’s a reason this place is called “The garden of Europe” as it’s one of the largest flower gardens in the world. If you get the chance to check out during this period of time, I highly recommend!
And what do you wear in a massive, magical Dutch garden? A kelly green leafy crop-top and matching skirt, of course. In the event that they happen to be filming a frozen vegetable commercial and are in need of a green gigantic stand-in or a spontaneous duck hunting party assembles and seasonally-appropriate camouflage is required, you’ll be good to go.
I paired this Kate Spade matching set with my favorite Adidas sneakers for much of the day wandering around the gardens, but switched into these nude sandals when it was time for dinner. Like lots of coordinates, the top and skirt can be worn separately with ease, and for those of you in a conservative workplace, that may be the better option if head-to-toe print like this one is a bit too “garden party” for work. I’ve already worn the skirt on its own several times with a chambray tee shirt or fuchsia sweater, and a lot more recently, I wore the top with a pair of white high-waisted wide-leg trousers.
If you’re sporting either the crop top, skirt, or both to an office setting, I’d highly recommend these nude ankle-strap sandals if this type of footwear is proper at your casual or creative workplace, or better yet, try nude pumps like these ones or these ones if your office is a bit a lot more buttoned-up. Off duty, I love the juxtaposition of the feminine coordinates with the Stan Smiths.
