One Week....and One Day

One week from today I will be boarding a plane headed to the UK.

I will be leaving this weather

And running with open arms and lungs into this weather

I am so excited and already have a lot of what I am taking folded into a nice and neat pile on my floor.
My dad, Sister and I are headed to London, Dublin, Edinburgh, and back to London.

Neither of them have been to Europe before so I am fortunate to share this experience with them.

Packing has been a bit difficult. The coldest it will be is 49 degrees in Aberdeen. Um, that is about 60 degrees colder than it is in Houston right now... FA-REEZING compared to what my body is accustomed to.

Anyways, I have tried to put together outfits with layers that can be used other days also.
All next week I will post the types of outfits I am taking via Polyvore.

Speaking of packing, I got this little baby to go along with me.

Tory Burch Amanda Messenger Bag

It was a splurge but I have been looking for an across the body bag that I love for a while and this was like that little baby at the adoption place that you kept thinking about and just couldn't walk away from again.

She is great because you can fit a lot inside but she isn't too bulky like typical messenger bags.
For instance, last night I had my camera, car keys, wallet, gum, diet ginger ale and gummy snacks.

Do I normally carry a ginger ale? No.
A girlfriend and I went to see One Day with Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess

Unlike my movie date, I had not read this book so I was unaware of the heart wrenching story that was unfolding before my eyes.

And I was surprised by how well Anne did as a Brit.
And he was hot.

And they had some serious chemistry in my opinion.
But it was a bit slow. But I think everyone can relate to certain parts of it, particularly when it comes to the timing aspect of romance and love.

You are probably going to want to throw away her wardrobe for the first half of the movie. eww.

It was set in the UK for the majority of that movie which made me that much more excited about my upcoming departure.

Anyways, go see the movie, help me decide what to pack for my trip, and be jealous that I get to escape this dessert/swamp land for 11 days!
