STYLE IN YOUR CITY // AN URBAN STORE
It's been another fortnight since our last series of Style In Your City, which showcases your life and creates a community celebrating all the things you love about where you live. I loved reading your posts and all your stylish photos over on Instagram, I think this is definitely my favourite colourful coffee capture. My pick from the last fortnight was by Not Another Mummy Blog, I loved discovering a new city and how friendly a local neighbourhood cafe can be.
This fortnight I focused on stylish interiors, I'm slightly cheating as this is a store I found in Amsterdam but totally loved this urban feel and wanted to share it with you, plus I'm hoping that city might adopt me ;)

While wandering around the canals of Amsterdam we passed by Betty Blue tucked away on the corner, neon lights blazing from within and colourful bikes stacked by the window with an asortment of cool finds inside. The store is very urban with old concrete floors and had a distinct warehouse feel, plus there were rails of handprinted clothes and neon plinths to showcase some unusual pieces. I always get excited when I find these little gem like stores, each completely unique and oozing cool.
I obviously had to jump under this sign for a giggle and pose for a photo much to Paul's amusement. I took my time to check out there handmade goods, trying to find something to take home to F while grabbing a coffee from the small cafe bar that was in the middle of the shop. Even the take away coffee cups are cool with these baby pink lids.
So how does it work?
We would love it if you wanted to link up and join in with 'Style in your City'. This fortnight we're changing the rules a bit to make easier for you to showcase your city style. We want you to hunt down what catches your eye and shouts style to you and it could be anything: colourful buildings, street art that catches you've spotted, fashion your loving, art you've seen, fab patterns.. We'll pick be showcasing our favourites on our blogs each fortnight.
We're running this as a bi-weekly feature and you don't have to have a blog to join in or live in a bustling city for that matter, simply use the hashtag #styleinyourcity on twitter and/or IG with a photo and tag @wildandgrizzly and @tigerlillyquinn.
