Location: London, England
Sharing images from our travels in London. Kiel and I popped into the city to visit a couple of friends who were in town. We booked a room at the Chesterfield Mayfair hotel in Mayfair for our stay. A few years back we stayed there and loved that the location was within perfect walking distance to many of the must see sights including Buckingham Palace, Big Ben (now under construction), the London eye, shopping on Bond street, and Hyde Park. It felt wonderful to walk everywhere. Spring was definitely in the air with the arrival of daffodils and cherry blossoms.
For our trip to England I packed a lot of items that were comfortable and interchangeable including wool sweaters, jeans, boots, and a couple of coats that I tend to wear with everything. I bought these Everlane chinos with an elastic waistband to feel cozy at the airport but I ended up wearing them again on the drive from Malmsbury to London. They are very casual but in combination with my blazer coat this outfit managed to look somewhat put together. I also wore these Everlane loafers quite a bit during this trip. They are really broken in at this point. I always find dressing for this time of year difficult as it’s still too cold for spring clothes and winter clothes are not ideal. It was a little bit of a challenge to pack for England. The weather during our trip was in the high 50s, balmy compared to home, but still chilly if you didn’t wear enough layers.
Every time we travel I always bring Harry’s Babyzen YoYo stroller. It’s honestly one of the best baby purchases I have made. Traveling with baby gear can be chaotic and this stroller can fold up into a bag and be placed in the overhead compartment. It’s really light-weight and has a little bit of storage underneath the seat. I usually stow away a few snacks, diapers, etc for Harry when we are out and about. I love not having to carry around an extra bag. It comes in a few different colors and is really easy to clean. On this particular trip we packed way more than we needed to and Kiel ended up using this stroller to wheel Harry’s carseat, piled with bags, through the airport.
