Wishful Packing

{ I love this cute ruffled jacket from J.Crew.}

We're leaving for London in ten days and I have to admit that I am feeling a little overwhelmed about it. I feel like I have known more about most of the destinations I have traveled to in the past than I do about London. Plus, everyone says it is so huge! At the end of the day though, I attribute these stressors to my OCD nature and the fact that it is in my nature to try to plan everything down to the last minute. However, I am going to do my best to just relax and play it by ear when it comes to our itinerary.

{Schoolboy blazers seem rather appropriate for London.}

Having said that, there is one area that I cannot stop stressing about: fashion! I am feeling a little anxious about packing for a climate that seems completely foreign to me right now considering the fact that it has been scorching hot in Houston for the past five months! The high temperatures should be around sixty with lows in the mid to high forties while we are in London. I want to be comfortable since we will be out sightseeing all day everyday, but I'd like to at least look a little stylish since I've heard London is filled to the brim with fashion mavens. I wish that I could hit up J.Crew and Anthropologie and scoop up all of these looks for our trip since they fit the comfy but stylish bill.However, that won't be happening. A girl can dream, right? Any tips on what to pack for a week in London?

I love the oversized lapels and fit of this coat.

Again, I love this schoolboy look. The coat is so fun!

This outfit is a hot mess in my opinion. It's not really my style, but I do love the blazer.

I love the rust color and ruffle detail on this jacket.

I am craving a nice whiskey colored leather jacket like this one from Anthropologie for Fall.
Can you tell I love a good ruffle? This Anthro jacket is so gorgeous!

I love the Victorian feel and think it would be very appropriate for London.

I love the pretty yellow color of this cozy sweater from Anthropologie. Does anyone else have an aversion to wool? I can't stand to wear it and I feel like 9 out of 10 cute sweaters always have wool in them.

I normally wear pants or dresses more often than skirts, but I love this J.Crew outfit. It would be nice for an evening out.

This would be a great dress option for a chilly night in London.
