London Town.

It's an exciting week, folks.  The Texan and I are off to London! 

Looking forward to my first visit to this lovely city and also spending some time with our dear friends that live there. 

I have been packing in my head for weeks now.  I really don't like to over pack, so I am big on taking one piece and making it work several ways.  Because the weather is unpredictable in London right now, I know something I will get lots of mileage out of is my black Cartonnier blazer from Anthropologie.

I picked this up around the Holidays and have been surprised at how often I can toss it on.  I currently have plans to wear with a gray tee and cropped jeans and also with white pants and a striped tank.    Also throwing in a lace tank for evening that this jacket will work with as well.  It's a soft jersey cotton so I think it will be a nice layer to have for the trip.  I usually leave it unbuttoned so it looks less conservative...

I'm also excited about a clean and simple white linen shirt.  Think I'm going to wear this on the plane ride over, toss it on with high rise jeans and a belt for day and then use it as a swim cover-up for the rest of the trip.

And finally, my splurge for the trip are a pair of shoes I have been eyeing forever at Nordstrom. 

The Giveable flat by Stuart Weitzman.  They are quite comfortable and the ribbon detail around the top is soft and cozy against my skin.  My Tory Burch flats are officially uncomfortable and I have been looking for something that wasn't basic black.

It seems I have a black and white theme going here...

Any suggestions for London?

Hope you have a happy week!  I will post a full trip report next week!


  1. How fun! Those shoes will be perfect for all the walking! I loved the shopping districts at High Street Kensington, Portobello Market and the East End. And beware of the smelly commuters on the tube this time of year.

    Have fun and Mind the Gap!

  2. Have a blast in London! I love your new flats! Can't wait to hear all about your trip! :)
