We’re leaving on our trip this week and I’m still figuring out my Europe Packing List. I have few basics to take, but the coats and boots all still fit. They’re also the bulkiest and heaviest items in my suitcase, so hopefully I narrow it down before I’m forced to because my suitcase won’t close! This poncho shawl is a major debate of mine. I think it’d be perfect on the plane and really just thrown over anything. It’s no surprise, but clothing zipping up tightly around my midsection hasn’t been amazing. This shawl is perfect for any layered winter outfit as long as it isn’t raining…
Layered Winter Outfit
So the rain. It was 67 in London one day last week and the rain has been minimal in the forecast for the last few weeks. Until now! All three cities we’re visiting had rain this weekend. Last week I got excited at the possibility of leaving my big rain boots at home, but now I’m not so sure that’s a good idea. Alas!
Fishnet Socks Outfit
Whenever I think of fishnets, I always think of full length pantyhose. Then I remember that I have a pair of knee high fishnets that are kind of perfect for layering into heels. I love that they are totally opaque like tights but add a fun pizzaz (without the torture of full leg versions). I’ve had this pair for years, but I found some fun ones here and here. These two pairs go up just past your ankle, but that would be enough! In addition to wearing them with my ankle strap pumps, I think they’d be fun with my loafers too!
