How to Plan and Pack for London

I feel like this is kind of an ironically titled post; of all the trips I’ve planned, this one felt the most unorganized despite spending hours and months poring over information. It took me so long to piece together an itinerary, but it seemed like a majority of those plans erupted once we were over there.

Swing into Spring!

Other than all the flowers that are popping up everywhere, my favorite part of spring is dresses, dresses, and more dresses! I hate wearing pants – they’re so restricting and judgmental! – so I can usually be found wearing dresses all year round, anyway. But there’s something so freeing about a fun spring dress with a cute pair of sandals.

And it’s even better when that fun spring dress comes with a totally affordable price tag!
