London

I had the most wonderful time in London, the weather was really good and been Remembrance day the atmosphere was special, the only complain was my painful feet.

There are so many things to see and the weekend flew so quickly. I love London, I have been many times but I never get tired of it. And London has the perfect department store, Liberty, we wandered around looking at Alexander Wang, Isabel Marant, Helmut Lang, Acne, APC  clothes, Mulberry bags, Valentino scarfs.

Topshop flagship store is so big, the even have a d.j, we just were talking about the music when we saw him, there is also a place for piercings and tattoos (we found that weird). I loved All Saints shop at Candem, all was black or gray, just my kind of place. I bought underwear for my whole family in M&S  and some creams from Soap & Glory.

Finally I got my grey skinnies. Light effect courtesy of a dirty lens.

Today I also bought a really cheap parka from Lefties. It was 29,99€ and looks cute.


Weekend

What do you pack for a weekend in London when you have not space whatsoever because you are planning to fill your backpack with your shopping?

I would say lots of black! A pair of skinnies from Zara, a couple of t shirts from Cos and H&M, a t shirt dress from Boohoo, a  sweater from Marks and Spencer, a  cardigan from Forever 21, flat boots from New Look , heeled shoe boots from Marks and Spencer, an small handbag from Lefties and a H&M scarf. I am planning to make at least five outfits from these pieces adding some others I will buy in London.

Packing

I am going away for the weekend. One of the best things about having a good working closet is that packing gets much easier. I tend to wait till the last minute and I like to travel light, I don’t have a car so I prefer to take my backpack.

These are the things I am planning to take, I am thinking on maybe add a pair of shorts because the weather is going to be really good only a little bit chilly at night, that’s the reason I am taking a couple of scarfs. A black dress for saturday night, a couple of skinnies, four tops, a couple of knits and my black Repettos that I can wear with everything. The flip-flops can be useful for staying indoors and out, underwear and a nightgown and I am done!!

I roll the garments so they creased less and they fit easier in my backpack. What are your tips for packing? Next week I will show this weekend outfits.
