What to pack for a weekend in London…

Packing is something that I find quite difficult each time I go on a city break… Actually I find it difficult when I go on any break. This weekend I will be in London for 4 days (Friday-Monday) and for those who read my last post, you will know that I have no idea what I will be doing whilst I’m there. Which makes packing even more difficult, especially when I only have a small bag to pack everything into.

Due to the very large amount of people who sqeeze themselves onto the tube each time it arrives at the platform, I decided to use my gym bag which can be swung over my shoulder rather than a suitcase which would just be in everyone’s way. 

Jedd and I love walking and seeing as we’ll be in London, I’m guessing that we will be doing plenty of it. Therefore I have packed a simple pair of black suede boots (H&M) as these are my favourite shoes because of how comfortable they are & I know that I will be able to last all day in them. I’ve packed a pair heels (Primark) for going out at night. I’m also debating whether I should pack a pair of sandals (Public Desire) on the off chance that it doesn’t rain but according to the weather forecast it won’t stop all weekend.  

Friday: As I will be travelling all morning, I will dress in more comfortable clothes. Black skinny jeans (Topshop), a striped top (New Look), my leather jacket (Topshop) and a large grey scarf (H&M). As my travel back is quite a bright turquoise colour I opted for a black and white outfit as it won’t clash because I don’t know how long I’ll be carrying it round for.
Saturday: I have packed a skirt which will be suitable for daytime and evening wear in case we don’t get chance to go back to the hotel. I will wear the skirt (Miss Selfridge) with a knitted jumper (H&M) and my leather jacket along with tights and boots. 

Sunday: For Sunday, I have packed black skinny jeans again! Along with a black long sleeved top which is suitable for every weather as it’s quite thin but would still keep me warm. Depending on the weather when I wake up, I’ll decide whether boots or sandals are more suitable. (Apologies for the poor photo- due to the lighting in my room, black doesn’t photograph well). 

For the evening, I will wear a navy dress (New Look) along with the red heels and a matching clutch.

 Monday: Black skinny jeans again… Along with a black cropped top (H&M) and an over-sized white cardigan (Forever 21) which will be so comfy for the journey home. 

I’ll also be packing the obvious toiletries, makeup, straighteners which I also use to curl my hair and underwear.

Now packing is all finished I just can’t wait to go! I’m sure I’ll write a post about it whilst I’m there or when I get home. Xx
