After reading an article in Vogue by Serena Hood regarding how she shops more for holidays and summer days than winter and I realised that it also applies to me.
Virtually everything I buy from February onwards I tell myself “oh that is perfect for here and Lima Dreaming” I wear clothes here in the summer and then they go to Peru in December and they gain another identity. Sometimes they travel back to the UK but mostly they live in Peru and very year I resurrect different treasures that I had forgotten about.
Currently I am having fun choosing pieces for my new job (Whistles) and I know that I will wear them here and some pieces will also look amazing in Lima.
I have realised that this way of shopping maximises the fun and minimises the guilt of shopping.
Whistles Ellen Casual Shirt £89 here
Whistles Alisha Spilt Hem Pants £99 here
This outfit will work so well my shearling slides here and my Sophia Webster slides in Lima.
Whistles Alia Shearling Slides £139 here
Sophia Webster Lilico slides mine are last years but there are different colours available here
Whistles Juana Alisha Dress £149 here
This dress will also work with the shearling slides here but I will team it with my Valentino Rockstud sandals as well.
Whistles Nadia Denim Frill Jumpsuit £159 here This is definitely one of my favourite buys this year and I already wear it for work and I will wear it in Lima dresses down.
I have just spotted another perfect pair of slides for both home and away and they will be perfect with this jumpsuit! They are also available in pink and I cannot decide which is my favourite!
Valentino Rockstud Slides £190 here
This next dress will look amazing with these slides both home and away.
Whistles Lila Bardot Dress £129 here
It is so much fun choosing outfits this way and it’s no wonder that I do it for 11 months of the year, the other month I am actually living my Lima dream.
