I have been reading your blog for a while now....and your "what to wears" are my favorite. I thought of you when my husband informed me of our upcoming trip. He has received an international assignment for work...2 years in London, and we are very excited. Our house hunting trip is in 2 weeks. I want to make the most of it as it is my first time in the city. I think it will be a pretty busy week...lots of time on the train, walking, a few meeting with schools, meeting work associates, dinners out, etc. I am hoping to put together a few outfits that I can mix & match...super versatile. The weather is likely to be cool & wet, and we will be out & about a lot. I am a stay-at-home mom of two, 5'7", size 6-8, with a wardrobe with some decent basics. I wouldn't mind picking up a few new things for the trip.London is such a fun city for fashion. It's also pretty darn cold. Here's my recommendation:
Skirt - A little tweed mini is fun for winter with a pair of warm black tights. Better than pants on rainy days because you'll dry faster.
Turtleneck - A warm basic in black.
Flats - I took these with me to Paris. Super comfortable! You can hardly see the rubber soles when you wear them.
Jacket - A cropped white peacoat will be warm enough when you're running around. Light enough that you can keep it on inside or wear it under a big wool coat.
Beanie - So helpful in keeping you warm and easy to toss in your bag.
Bag - Buy this at Topshop when you're there.
Dress - Great with a pair of tights and the jacket on top.
Jeans - Nothing is more versatile. This cute pair is on sale for $30.
Sweater - This seems really "London" to me.
Have fun exploring your new city!
