So my last post featured a few tips on what to do and see in Iceland... As I mentioned, the place is so so amazing, there's no way of cramming all the info into 1 post! (Plus I have enough pics to fill about 3 Facebook albums...) So, I've decided to split this into 3 posts: What to See, What to Wear, Where to Stay & What to Eat! Yep, that's 4 topics, but I didn't take nearly enough food photos, so I'm cramming the last 2 together!!
This outfit here is a good example of what I typically wore out and about in Iceland. Yes, you could go all out in Ski gear, but this is a town and not an actual ski resort, I decided to go for similar clothing to what I wore when I went to Canada last year.
Tip 1. The key here is layers!!! It may not look like it here, but I was wearing a vest, long sleeved top, this jumper and then for outerwear I would generally wear my gilet with my gorge Urban Outfitters jacket over the top. This allowed me to look fairly smart from day to night as I only took the one coat.
Tip 2. Jeans are not generally the warmest of Winter gear, but these ASOS jeans are seriously comfy and I knew we'd be doing a lot of travelling.They're also baggy enough to allow me to slip a pair of fleecey leggings or tights underneath. The ones I got were microfleece from Primark and they were more than adequate!
Tip 3. You will need a hat!! At times, I even wore my headband here with my hat over the top! Equally essential are decent gloves. My Ugg gloves have never failed me yet!! I would highly recommend these - and now is a great time to buy as the Sales are still on.
Outfit: Alexis Side Split Jumper from Boohoo, Kimmie Jeans from ASOS,
Accesories: Classic Bow Gloves from UGG, Furtrapper Hat - ASOS, Penny Backpack* - Nica Handbags, Teddy Fleece Boots - Timberland, Headband - River Island
Tip 4: If it snows like it did when we were there, then you will need shoes or boots with good grip. I borrowed these Timberland boots off my super stylish mum! And they were perfect!! Comfy, warm and sturdy, with plenty of room to get a thick pair of socks underneath.
Plus there's some gorgeous styles currently on their website!
Tip 5: If you feel the cold, then make sure you pack some polo neck tops or a snood to keep drafts off the back of your neck!
Hope this helps! If you have any questions, do comment below :-)
