Guest Post: The Anna Belle Blog

Happy Monday! I'm really excited to provide a little London update tomorrow, but until then, I have the amazing Anna Belle helping me out with a great guest post that's full of tips for a visit to London. Enjoy, and I'll be back tomorrow!

Hi everyone! I'm Anna Belle, from The Anna Belle Blog. I write about the style and beauty products that I love (and can afford). I'm really excited to be guest posting for Bri again (see my other post here) while she is in London for work! When packing for a trip to London, I recommend remembering three things:
  1. It will rain.
  2. It will be cooler than you think.
  3. There will be tea time.
To me, this means I should pack 1: an umbrella and a raincoat, 2: slacks and a summer scarf, and - because I love thematic dressing - 3: some kind of pearl jewelry! These items combine perfectly to create an outfit for having tea at the Wolseley Hotel. Their cream tea is amazing. My husband and I still talk about how amazing their scones were!
  • Dorothy Perkins Scarf ($17) - I love this rose pattern.
  • ASOS Trench Coat ($114, on sale for $86) - this color is so lovely!
  • She Inside Top ($18) - lace is so trendy right now.
  • Old Navy Ankle Pants ($30)
  • Baublebar Ear Cuffs ($26) - I love this untraditional way to wear pearls to tea!
  • OPI Strawberry Margarita
  • ASOS Watch ($38)
  • Steve Madden Shoes ($40) - I love Bri's yellow pair of these shoes (so I know that she'd find them comfortable enough)!

The other touristy thing that I loved in London was eating at a pub on Fleet Street - the home of Sweeney Todd! (I ended up passing on the meat pies in favor of fish and chips!)
  • Trench - you can only pack so much, so I wanted to reuse the trench here.
  • Piperlime Top ($79, on sale for $44) - a top that could also be used for work days.
  • Plaid Scarf ($38, on sale for $19) - to make everything a little more casual.
  • Essie Ballet Slippers - a good color for work as well.
  • ASOS Watch ($38)
  • Old Navy Jeans ($32) - I would wear these comfy jeggings on the plane.
  • Dorothy Perkins Purse ($21)
  • Lucky Brand Emmie Flats ($60) - I love these flats; they are so comfortable.
