Packing for London: Fall


As I head back to London for my second school year there. I plan on what I'll be packing for the little summer (September), and mainly fall (end of September, October, and beginning of November) as well as a little winter before I head home for a month in December. I have about nine boxes in storage in London mainly dorm stuff, but some basic clothes were left. This Blog has some insight from last year of what I used and didn't use for those who are less familiar with the seasons of London and what people wear on the street day in and day out.

Prada shoulder-bag- this a great purse for when I'm traveling particularly on the continent as it has a zipper (key for pickpockets) as well it has two compartment one you can put your money and phone in the smaller one for easy asses throughout the day. I sometimes turn it inwards, so the smaller pocket is on my body. The bag packs well with its small structure, and you can remove the strap and use it as a cosmetic bag in a larger bag for travel. I also love the color it's a nice neutral that is a little unusual.

Chloé Saddel bag- the Chloe bag is a great day in day out bag it's the perfect size as carries a little more but still a shoulder bag, so it feels safe against you. My camera is quite big so it fits into this bag as it wont fit into my Prada.

Burberry Bucket bag- this bag is awesome for me it has two ways to carry and a compartment that comes in and out that i can keep the essentials in it and move it from purse to purse which I Love. and again i Love. I literally used it every day in London last year.
