I spent last weekend in London, so I thought I would do a 'travel capsule wardrobe' post for change. Or, rather, two posts, as otherwise this post would get a bit long with so many photos.
It's been about 7 weeks since the last time I was in the U.K. I know, a long time, an eternity by my standards. But January and February are always very busy for me, and as I've been working 5 days a week, with full schedule on both Fridays and Mondays, Professor M has been doing the weekend commuting.
But now I have a well-deserved break, and we decided to start with a weekend in London. So, on Friday, after a long day at work in Finland, I caught the evening flight to Heathrow. I arrived very late, and with only cabin luggage.
Which meant that I would have to manage on whatever I had packed. And with one coat and one bag for the entire weekend. I cheated a bit with the shoes: I had asked Professor M to bring me this pair of shoes from our home in England. My feet just needed a change after weeks of wearing nothing but boots, and for some weird reason all my shoes seem to have migrated to our house in England again...
Anyway, for a Saturday afternoon walk / a bit of shopping / a casual lunch I decided to go with a tried-and-tested formula of my favourite basics: jeans, a Breton top, leopard print sunnies.
coat: Hobbs / top: Banana Republic / jeans: Next / scarf: Shanghai Tang / bag: Chanel /
shoes: Clarks / sunglasses: Dolce & Gabbana / pendant: Målerås
Capsule wardrobes, love them or hate them?
