Happy Monday, friends!
I hope you’re enjoying your Labor Day Monday! We obviously don’t have the day off here in England, so it’s back to work (for some of us at least!)
This past weekend, we had the best time walking around the cute little town of Kenilworth. It was another mostly sunny, warm day but with a nice crisp breeze – perfect for a day of exploring. I’ll share more about the town tomorrow (there’s a castle!), but first wanted to talk a little about remixing neutrals as Labor Day always marks the unofficial end of summer for me.
Ignore the wrinkled shirt – apparently U.S. steamers don’t work in the U.K., along with pretty much every other appliance I brought. I’ve worn all of these items a ton since I got here, however, because they really are perfect for remixing. Whether you’re traveling for vacation or for a few years like me, sticking to a single color palette can really extend the life and versatility of your clothing items, like with the soft grey, pink, and white combo here.
Knowing that I get to go home for Christmas and grab more seasonal items, I tried to bring mostly fall + early winter clothes in most lighter neutrals and the deeper richer colors that I also gravitate towards in fall, like burgundies, reds, and mustards.
We took these photos in a cute little alleyway that opened into a courtyard with more terraced houses. One of my favorite parts of living in Kensington when we studied abroad there in college was when would think you were going to come to a dead end, only to find tucked away townhouses or a little garden. It always makes for such a nice surprise!
Enjoy your holiday in the states!
