Packing for a Trip to the UK

This is kind of exciting... my mother-in-law will soon be heading to the UK, on a trip with her best friend. They're going to London, and then they'll go to a few other countries after they tour certain areas of the UK. When my m-i-l told us that she'd be overseas for two weeks, her main concern was really having the right clothing and accessories for her trip. 

I shared a great article with her about How to Pack for a Trip to London!

She knew she would need some comfortable shoes, because she'd be doing a lot (and I do mean a lot) of walking. So, we started looking for walking boots. My husband and I both encouraged her to look at men's walking boots, as well as women's. Honestly, I find men's sneakers often fit better than women's sneakers!

Hi-Tec Otter Trail Waterproof Boots

One of my top picks for her trip, is a boot like this one- the Hi-Tech Otter Trail Waterproof Boot. I thought this boot looked like it would suit her style, plus it looked like it would provide plenty of support for hours upon hours of walking. I like the tread on the bottom of this boot, too! I know my mother-in-law is expecting to be walking around in the rain, so the fact that these are waterproof is a huge plus!

She's also going to need a lightweight waterproof jacket for her trip. Something that will keep her dry, and also warm, if need be. With the changing of the seasons upon us, I wouldn't be surprised if a couple of days of her trip were sort of damp, and chilly. One of the brands I trust to protect against the elements, is The North Face. I think if she could go with a jacket, she'd probably pick one of these!

I know that I'm not the one going on this trip, but if I were, I'd want to wear something comfortable, cute and stylish while sightseeing. I'd go for outdoor clothing, but the last thing I'd want to do is look like a tourist. I'd probably put on a cute shirt dress or tunic, with a pair of leggings and flats to walk around in... but like I said, that's me, and I'm not going on this trip. She's going to have such a great time! I want her to hurry up and go, so she can come back and show us pictures!
