I am at university in England for a month at St. Clare’s University! Located in Oxford, England, it is a charming city an hour and a half north of London. Even though I packed for cold, rainy England weather, the first day was nearly 75 degrees Fahrenheit…
Before I arrived, I did take a few pictures of what I packed. You will notice that most of the clothes are neutrals (mainly grey and black) and sweaters (pullovers, not cardigans) because I did not want to deal with the fuss of coordinating color.
There are plenty of fine restaurants, shops, and sights around the area to check out, so I may have to go shopping downtown more than originally planned if this weather keeps up and look for more summery clothes.

I also packed by black Coach rainboots and new Ralph Lauren metallic loafers. I did pack more than that, of course, but I don’t think showing pictures of socks and toiletries may be of interest. Let’s hope it gets a little cooler so I can wear my sweaters!
