pretty things no. 21

This weekend's edition of pretty things is inspired by my newly booked upcoming trip to London! We're going in the spring, first to London and then to Amsterdam for a few days and I couldn't be more excited. I'm already planning my outfits, which makes this the perfect topic for pretty things.

The number one item on my London outfit wish list was a sleeveless trench like this one from 3.1 Philip Lim. I'll be layering it over white tees and blouses for a polished look.

It seems like most travel packing lists involve a leather biker jacket because it's useful for so many climates and situations. I'm partial to beige biker jackets because they look lighter and make your outfit more luxurious.

To me, a pair of patent leather brogues is quintessentially British (just like a Burberry trench). They're a great masculine piece to pair with a feminine dress or blouse to give your look a little edge.

London weather can be unpredictable especially in the spring when a warm day can easily transition into a cool evening. I'll definitely be packing a lightweight scarf that will also add some femininity and color to my outfits.

When I'm in the city, I'm always sure to wear not only a sunscreen but a pollution blocking sunscreen like this one from Supergoop.

I've been mentioning how I plan on styling masculine pieces with feminine ones. This Burberry blouse is the perfect feminine piece to layer under a trench coat or with a pair of heavy brogues.

Finally, who would I be if I didn't recommend a pair of large sunglasses for travel? This black, angular pair from Le Specs will add a touch of glam to complete any look.
