Lima Dreaming beach style| Winter sun beachwear|

It is definitely that time of year again, all my thoughts have turned towards Lima. It may seem strange when most people are focusing on christmas but for me its sunshine all the way which is why I find myself searching for beachwear.

Lima is always split in to two categories, week days in the south on the beach and weekends in Lima for family time, cocktails, food and long walks. This means I get to have different wardrobes as the city and the beach require different pieces.

I spotted this dress by Denim & Supply awhile ago in store and this will definitely be in my suit case

A new sundress (or two) is always nice, either for beach life or city life (you need pretty clothes to drink pretty cocktails!)

I think I will finish as I started with a pretty dress which is just perfect for Lima. All it needs is gorgeous sandals (I have plenty) a hat and I am ready. Bellini please.
