My wait is finally over Isabel Marant has my new season boots!

Earlier today I was complaining that there were no new season Isabel Marant boots that I liked and tonight as if by magic here they are.

I already have boots in this style I love the Chelsea boot fit around my ankle (do not like baggy ankle boots) and the heel height is perfect.

A few weeks ago I was toying with white ankle boots for spring/summer what more could ask for.

Dreams are made of feathers, sparkles and Miu Miu of course

These boots are practically perfect in every way for spring summer (no rain please) I would wear them with jeans, dresses skirts just about anything I have in my wardrobe. The only prerequisite is tanned legs, the pink will look so much nicer!!

Holiday packing! Why do we pack so many things?

It is a standing joke that I spend eleven months of every year looking for my “Lima Dreaming” outfits but when I actually arrive I wear denim shorts for most of the three weeks. I want to wear different things but the lifestyle either at the beach or in the city calls for simple outfits.

I have been here five days so far and I have worn:

Zara embroidered shorts £17.99 Pampelone 55 blouse Valentino Rockstud slides (blouse & slides were bought earlier in year)

Whistles Alisha Split Hem Trousers £79  Whistles Ellen Casual Shirt £40 Havaianas in black £45

Seafolly black dress £85 Seafolly Indian Summer bandeau top £36 Seafolly pleated hipster bikini bottoms £39

 

I know I will wear these Zara printed shorts £17.99 and some old favourites my Denim & Supply dress and my beautiful Valentino Rockstud sandals

For my own sake I will update this post should I find hidden gems in my wardrobe here in Peru or actually wear everything in my case.

 

As if by magic they appeared right before my eyes…….

There I was thinking about my wardrobe going into the new year (denim shorts at the moment) and white ankle boots sprung to mind worn with my little dresses (tanned legs required), then as if by magic I stumbled across these little beauties at Topshop.

Oh dear this is a major obsession alert Valentino boots…..

There I was innocently checking Mytheresa.com when suddenly there they were in front of me.

These boots are simply perfect for spring/summer with tanned legs, I am already concocting outfits. I know it is freezing outside and they are hardly snow boots but their time will come. I do realise that someone will point out that bear more then a passing resemblance to my pink Acne star boots but really they are very different VERY!

Only 5 more days to go to Lima Dreaming I am so excited …….

Recent events have meant that this year I haven’t done my usual Lima Dreaming countdown, an unexpected trip to Canada to see a very poorly little boy followed by an unexpected stay in Schipol airport certainly dampened my enthusiasm a little.

Tonight however I am sat here thinking only 5 more days and I will be on that plane Lima Dreaming all of the way.

I have so many little treats to take with me to add to my already beautiful wardrobe.

Every year I take a few additions to freshen up my wardrobe some of my pieces have been there for ten years and I still enjoy them.

This year I am taking:

Valentino slides

Zara off the shoulder dress

Zara printed denim shorts £25.99 here

My gorgeous Valentino sandals (these are Lima veterans) with The King of Peru in Guidi)

Beach toes in Valentino Rockstuds and Guidi Flipflops

Berenice Rose emerald green pretty dress

Pampelone 55 blouse

Zara embroidered denim shorts £25.99 here

I am sure there a few other things tucked away waiting to go in my suitcase, we shall see…………….
