You guys were so helpful dressing me for Seattle that I'm back to tap the juicy hive mind once again. I'm going to be in London next week for about 7 days. I see that according to the weather forecasts online it's likely to be in the mid-70s (F) during the day, with lows into the upper 50s at night. A friend we are visiting with there has also advised us to expect rain.
Is packing mostly jeans, t-shirts and light sweaters way out of line? I have some lightweight rayon-type pants (black) that I'm also considering for warmer days.
My projected packing also includes a couple of lighter jersey dresses. I assume I'll want tights with these?
Also bringing an umbrella. Should I even bother with shorts, or is it not likely to be that warm?
I'm coming from Florida where it's been burning hot with daily monsoons, so it might be nice to need long sleeves in the evenings.
