London calling! two very hot happy shopping days

After spending the last two very  hot days in London I thought I would recap on my new loves for now and the new season (there are a few)

Harrods shoe heaven is always on my “must visit” list, they never fail me and I was lucky enough to find these little gems which have since sold out.

Valentino Rockstud slides £190 (I cant even find a link for them they have sold out everywhere)

I am always on the look out for the perfect crossbody bag and I find many that I like but there is always a but! On saturday whilst walking around Harvey Nichols I spotted a perfect crossbody by Marc Jacobs,. As soon as I picked it up I knew, the strap , the colour and the size were all spot on. This bag will serve me well both here and of course for Lima Dreaming.

Marc Jacobs crossbody £250 here

I do love a hat both winter and summer whether it be a cap, beanie or a fedora and I was very lucky to fine two gorgeous options in Harvey Nichols.

Isabel Marant Crompton alpaca and wool beanie £90 here

I tried this felt cap in Harvey Nichols and I loved it but already my size is sold out.

Satya Twena Cody felt hat £200 here

I always try sunglasses when the opportunity arises and I always end up buying Rayban aviators. This time I actually tried and loved this pair from Victoria.

Victoria Beckham Feather Round Sunglasses £295 here

I do have quite a few pairs of Raybans but they are all gold framed and I really don’t think you can have too many pairs! so silver is the way forward  (silver or white frames with silver lenses) I did try a pair in Harvey Nichols but once again I failed to buy them.

Rayban silver toned aviator £134 here

The one thing that my trip helped me decide is my next tote bag and it is the Givenchy Antigona either the small or medium in grey (not the mini size)

Givenchy Antigona £1450 here

I really want to wear this Poupette St Barth dress it would work so well in my Lima Dreaming paradise.  I could wear it for breakfast dinner or drinking cocktails in the sunshine.

Holiday Shopping and Daydreaming|Summer Wardrobe Essentials|

It is a very grey Sunday morning here but I never let that bother me I just day dream. Today I was thinking about a trip to Lake Como that we may take in September, I love Como it won my heart a few years ago. It is only a short distance from Milan, what more could you want? sunshine and shops!!

The added benefit for all of these clothes is they will also travel to Peru with me in December.

I have been deciding what I will wear as it will be hot but it is also very stylish. Here a few things that I will be taking with me.

A few things that I am loving this week|Altuzarra for Target|Slogan Tees|

I have had a few moments this week where I have thought “I love that”, I am sure I do it all of the time but I thought I would share it all this time. Quite often I love it at that moment and then the next day I have moved on to something else but these have stayed on my wishlist.

I am always on the lookout for items to take on the annual trek to Lima and I love the Juliet Dunn silk dungarees, just perfect for laid back beach living.  I have also included a couple of photos that I love always and look at them often as they make me smile.

There are a few pieces that I would just love to add to my wardrobe especially the Whistles Navy Fedora and the Saint Laurent sunglasses, they would certainly add to my off duty wardrobe.

Things you need now….|Summer Wardrobe Essentials|Silver Sandals|

I have totally fallen for these Carvela sandals and I will be buying them today. It may seem late in the summer to buy more sandals but these have SO much potential. They will team nicely with my Isabel Marant skirts as well as jeans and shorts. They will certainly go to Peru where I will probably wear them all of the time!!

Finding these sandals encourages me to look at other great late summer buys so I hope you like my selection.

Holiday Shop| Where can I buy summer clothes now|

If you are lucky enough to be jetting off to the sun over xmas then buying holiday clothes can be a bit of a problem at this time of year. I also think that spending a lot of money on summer clothes in mid winter is wrong, you probably won’t wear them again for  months. There is plenty out there it is just a matter of looking.

I decided to keep to the High Street for my search today and I hope you like my finds.
