What I'm packing for the U.K.

By the time this post goes up I will officially be in London!! I could NOT be more excited to be back in my favorite city. As some of you may know I'm London obsessed and studied abroad in the city three years ago. It's one of my favorite cities in the world, so I always will find an excuse to make a trip. This go around I am traveling before my work trip to Barbour's headquarters in South Shields, England. London is a super easy stop along the way and I will be spending about 5 full days in London with my bestie. Be on the lookout for lots of London content to come. 

As for this trip, it is a mix between business and pleasure so I needed kind of a wide range of outfits for the trip. Most of the clothing I am bringing for my personal London travels is from the recent release from Nordstrom the Halogen x Atlantic Pacific collection. I can't wait to photograph all of these pieces in London. It will be the perfect backdrop for these colorful pieces! Most of them I am pairing with jeans or black pants. When packing for a big trip like this I always will bring basic bottoms that I can re-wear multiple days. Then I bring shoes that will work with basically every outfit. The last thing you want is to carry around a bunch of shoes you will only wear once. So, don't be afraid to re-wear! 

I'm also bringing two coats as the temperature and weather will kind of be unpredictable. I'm wearing my red Millfire Barbour quilt for warmer days or if it rains as it has a hood. Then I'll wear my Barbour Beadnell Polarquilt if the weather gets chilly as it is polar fleece lined and longer. With a matching scarf that goes with either jacket if extra warmth is needed. 

When it comes to bags I'm only bringing a larger Henri Bendel Influencer backpack for carrying around my camera and essentials during the day. Then a smaller Jetsetter backpack incase I get tired of the larger bag. I will also use the leather backpack for work! 

For my work outfits I'm obviously repping Barbour. So, I'm packing multiple Barbour button downs with brown corduroy or leather skirts. Paired with my Cole Haan boots and tights it will be the perfect work ensemble. 

These are the main clothing pieces I am bringing on my trip! Would you want to see a breakdown of my toiletrees or how I pack my carry on? Let me know in the comments! 
Get ready for lots of London photos soon!
