I was in London last weekend
It was a short trip (just a couple of nights) to see my darling husband before he had to leave for a business trip on Sunday afternoon.
As you may (or may not) remember, we live in two countries, sort of. Professor M works in the U.K. during the week, and I work in Finland, so we only see each other at weekends.
However, for the past couple of years we’ve spent most of our weekends and all of our holidays either in Finland or somewhere else. Somewhere other than the U.K., I mean.
Yes, you can blame Brexit for that. I’ve always been very outspoken on this particular issue, but I don’t want open that can of worms right now. So, long story short, let’s just say that the political chaos and uncertainty in a country that insists on shooting itself in the foot, not to mention the hostility towards EU nationals (Professor M is German and I’m a Finn, as you know) don’t make me feel very welcome in the U.K. these days…
But let’s talk about the outfit
What to pack for a very short trip (48 hours), and when you’re travelling with hand luggage only? The short answer: as little as possible. The long(er) answer: check the weather report and choose your outerwear and footwear accordingly, then add an all-purpose bag that goes with it. The rest? Doesn’t matter. Just pack anything that goes with the coat and the shoes.
And in this case, I thought my camo parka would be the best option, as it was quite windy. And the fringe bag would add a cool, urban vibe to the outfit. And a striped top… Well, given how many striped tops I have, this was almost inevitable. Besides, everything else I might have wanted to pack was in the laundry…
parka: Makia / striped top: Gap / trousers: Marks and Spencer (old) /
bag: Lancel (old) / sunglasses: Prada / shoes: Ecco (old)
How much do you pack for 48 hours?
