The Big Red Door

While looking for a place to take photos last week, we stumbled upon this positively charming red door around the corner from our favorite breakfast joint, right across the street from our apartment. It's like a barn in the middle of Amsterdam!

Speaking of red, I recently picked up this shirt at Zara in a moment of desperation: I was craving color. After weeks of neutral-hued outfits, I was ready for a bright change. This steal of a shirt--on sale for 7 euro!--did just the trick, and, coupled with my new favorite mustard scarf (purchased from an adorable shop in the middle of Amsterdam), pulled me right out of my dreary-colored funk. Although I've created some very strict guidelines for myself in terms of shopping abroad (more on that later), I must say that these two purchases were worth every cent. Retail therapy indeed.
