It has been a week of discovering so many pretty things…..

I have to say that this week has been a week of potential major obsessions and I mean MAJOR I even found the prettiest dress ever for my Lima Dreaming wardrobe. (really)

Poupette St Barths Sasha printed dress £218 here

It is that time of the year when the christmas party becomes the topic of conversation and “what to wear”. I am not one for glitter and sequins so when I spotted this Whistles navy skirt I knew I had found  my outfit and I can wear it afterwards (many times). I will team it with a Whistles tee and some old but beautiful Prada silver wedges.

Whistles Au Revoir logo tee £49 here

Whistles Satin Pleated Skirt £139 here

and to finish it off my Prada wedges, I am not sure how long I can dance in them but they are so pretty.

I can’t resist a good hoodie at the moment they are my new found friends

Zara sweatshirt with textured hood £29.99 here

These slides are the things dreams are made of (mine anyway) and are perfect for Lima Dreaming, it is a shame I already have so many pretty sandals (apparently it’s written in stone)

Valentino Free Rockstud Slide Sandals in azure £535 here

This bag will complete my party outfit

Kurt Geiger London Tweed Kensington Bag £95.20 here

I think that may be all this week but I am sure there are so many pretty things out there.

My continuing obsession with furry slides ………

Last week when I flew out of Canada it was freezing but I hate to wear  shoes or boots when I fly long haul so my solution was my Zara furry slides with socks (channeling Isabel Marant)! Even if I say so myself it worked very well.

As always one pair is never enough I am always on look out for another pair in different colour or style. I do believe that this pair by Chloe are probably my ultimate pair but the others are pretty cool as well.

New winter shoes obsession alert platforms and stripes…..

I have been wondering for awhile what will be the winter shoes that will look great and be  comfortable well I think I have found them.

Running around store all day (personal shopper) requires a lot from a pair of shoes, they have to look amazing , be versatile and walkable (at least eight hours a day).

I really do not like tights but I realise there comes a time in winter where I may have to wear them for a few weeks (only if not wearing  over the knee boots)

These striped platform brogues from Zara are just perfect they will go with so many outfits. I know they will look good with my Whistles pleated skirt, my side striped pants, all of my jeans and little dresses.

Zara Brogues with Multicoloured Platforms £49.99 here

Take one Isabel Marant dress, slides and two pairs of boots…….

I do love an Isabel Marant dress I can always do so much with them just by changing the shoes. This dress has had me thinking (a lot for a long time) about different shoes in different locations, I am thinking Lima Dreaming and winter in Manchester.

These would be my favourite combinations:

Isabel Marant Lyon cotton voile mini dress £335 here

For work (personal shopping) pretty and comfortable.

Zara over the knee boots £59.99 here

Lima Dreaming in the sunshine with a cool pair of slides.

Isabel Marant Hellea Metallic Slides £295 here

I always need a cool pair of ankle boots (this would involve fake tan and a warm coat). In reality either my suede or snake effect Isabel Marant Danae boots would work perfectly but check this python pair I spotted today!

These pieces will certainly make you smile on grey winter day maybe not all together but on their own they will cheer up your wardrobe.

Lima Dreaming again with Valentino slides………

I know I really do not need any more sandals or slides for my annual trip to Lima but that doesn’t stop me looking (at all) !

These slides aren’t even available yet but just look at them they are so very pretty.

Valentino Free Rockstud Spike Slide in light green pink or dark blue £535 here

 

A Lima Dreaming dilemma black or white slides?

It has become a tradition (I do love a good tradition) that every year I take a new pair of Sophia Webster sandals to Peru as part of my “Lima Dreaming” wardrobe.

This year I love these Sophia Webster slides but do I choose black or white they are both so pretty. Both would work well with my wardrobe and both would work well with a tan! DILEMMA

Sophia Webster Becky Gem slides £295 here

 

 

My top 10 winter dresses to wear everyday ……..

My never ending love for Isabel Marant Danae boots…

The only ankle boots that I can run around store in all day everyday, and they look just as good with jeans as they do dresses.

I just found this black suede pair on Mytherea in the sale which is always good but fashion maths says that they probably cost pennies per wear.
