London in November: will it be cold? rainy? sunny?
It is anyone’s guess! So best to be prepared for any kind of weather, right?
I am very fortunate to be able to stay with my daughter in her flat: you know how that saves on the emergency sweater (sorry…jumper!) , hair dryer, lotions and potions etc.

Last year I was there in early October and every day was glorious! No rain at all. My day at Great Dixter was so beautiful. But this year, a month later, could be quite different.

The coat.

Nordstrom Rack 

I can’t believe how perfect this coat is! Perfect length. Zipper works very well but it also has snaps. The hood zips off but is great as is. Nice pockets. For $99.00 it is a definite WIN!
