Iceland Inspiration

The countdown is on; two weeks today and I'll be heading to Heathrow for a four-night stay in Iceland, staying in both Reykjavik and Akureyri for a couple of nights each. Iceland is somewhere I've wanted to go for a long time so needless to say I am looking forward to the trip.. A land of natural wonders (northern lights, geysers, waterfalls, the list goes on..), it's unlike anywhere I've ever seen before as sun-seeking is typically my go-to getaway anytime of year, but there's something about Iceland that is just as enticing, albiet in a slightly different way. Going away this time of year seems alien to me (my passport is usually lost in the depths of the draws by now) but it is coming at a very welcome time with the whole daylight saving and non-existent evenings taking full force. A change is as good as a rest as they say! 

Suprisingly (or perhaps not), the temperature is quite similar to the UK, meaning thick jumper weather all-day and thermals all-night so it won't be too much of a drastic change of climate but being outside most of the day (which I imagine we will be) isn't something I'm particularly used to in the winter months. Mixing practicality and fashion has never been a strength but layers is my manta this time round and I'm taking as many socks as can physically fit. I'm not usually very good at packing for all weather scenarios but I've finally learnt my lesson in that there is nothing worse than being cold so precautions are being taken. Doing the typical pre-holiday Trip Advisor scoure and itinerary-building has inevitably led to hours spent Pinterest-scrolling finding photographs which I'll spend the next few weeks day-dreaming about..

These are some warmth-orientated pieces that I've been coveting for the trip..
