In less than 2 weeks DH and I will be leaving on a jet plane. Our destination is England - for a trip of pleasure and to attend a family wedding. We will spend the first 4 nights in Richmond-Upon-Thames with plans to visit Kew, Richmond Park, and the Thames walks if the weather is fair, and museums and shopping if it is rainy. We then travel to Cambridge for 6 nights. 4 days of exploring Cambridge proper, and 2 days of wedding festivities. The night before our departure will be spent in London.

I’ve started to follow UK weather reports. The forecast for Richmond on the days around our arrival are temps of 15-16degC (60 degF).

Pics below are what I plan to wear/pack. It all fits in a roll aboard, and with undies, socks, and toiletries weighed about 16lbs.:

3 pair pants

4 t-shirts

3 sweaters

Light weight turtleneck

Sleeveless lace tank top


Lightweight puffer

Stretch jacket



2 scarves (1 pashmina, 1 silk)

Lepliage tote

Wedding outfit (dress and flats)

*if weather forecast looks bad, I may sub out for boots


Missing/shopping - a small dressy bag to go with the wedding outfit, and possibly a hat/fascinator that I will shop for

DH is packing an umbrella

I plan to use the matching suit as the base for my travel day outfit…


I run cold, but on recent walks with DH, we both got overheated after about 30 minutes of activity and the temps were colder (10-12degC). Jackets were off, and we were comfortable in just a sweater and jeans. Should I add a couple of button downs? Should I add a skirt?
