Hello friends! How was everyone's weekend? I spent part of mine testing out new recipes for Thanksgiving.  Anyone else absolutely love the idea of crispy, buttery edged stuffing and warm sweet cranberries this time of year? Me too!  And, even though the holidays might look a little different this year, we are still enjoying all the traditions and comforts.

Another thing we can always indulge in is a little wanderlust.  And while there's nothing quite like a Paris daydream, London is a pretty close second.  Something about the British guard and Love, Actually have me thinking about jetting across the pond.  And even if we're not taking a trip there right now, we can still plan to dress as if we were traveling those cobblestone streets this autumn.

London is synonymous with the tan trench.  This winter version would be perfect to wrap up in right now.  It's actually such a chameleon that, depending on the accessories you chose, you can really dress it up or down in any direction you want.  For today, it's all about the Big Ben vibes so these next few picks will be perfect for that.

This patterned newsboy cap immediately caught my attention.  I love how versatile it is and you all know I'm a sucker for a great hat.  A classic bag is a must for this look.  And oh how I adore this one.  It is another iconic piece that will work overtime for you and well worth the initial investment.  I highly recommend it if there is a way to see it into your budget.  Gold jewelry, a bold yet classic lip color and a black pair of statement glasses will round out the look for you will complete classic beauty and style.

Since this is a very tailored look with a few clever accents thrown in, I'm keeping the tops and bottoms simple.  A charcoal turtleneck sweater and these black trousers would be perfect and so easy to style a ton of other ways too.  And that leaves room for the decision to stay casual with a pair of these sneakers or dial it up with a rich pair of cognac boots.  Either way, I'm all in on this style daydream.

Where's the first place you want to travel to when the world is ready?
