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.
