Counting down

Ashley Fogel blouse, T by Alexander Wang cardigan, Topshop skinny jeans, Vintage boots (similar), Witchery leopard belt (similar), Marc by Marc Jacobs bag

The countdown until Europe is now well and truly on. At this time in two weeks I’ll be jetting across the sky making my way to London, so it’s only natural that the excitement is starting to set in. With that in mind, and my Dad visiting from Australia this week, much of the weekend was spent out with friends for a couple of dinners and kareoke.

I wore this on Saturday, and shortly after taking these photos, a heavy downpour started, giving you an idea of the type of weather we’ve been having lately. Seemed a bit odd with the rain battering the windows last night to be trying on my planned travel wardrobe, pale legs in tow. It might be just a little too organised, but I find it’s better to plan and allow for last minute additions, rather than throw everything in a suitcase while scrambling to get ready the night before, or the day of travelling.

    So exciting! I have been thinking about last year's trip so much lately, wish I could go again. But I have a different adventure this year…! You will have such a fantastic time.

    Perfect London look – especially since summer hasn't shown its face yet. But here's to hoping! xo

    I love the classic simplicity of this look – all of the pieces are basic, but when you put them together, they make a perfect ensemble!
