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)

Must have item of the day Gucci striped beanie

Look Of The Day Cosy & Chic|Isabel Marant Chunky Knits|

I do love this chunky cardigan from Isabel Marant and today is a perfect day to wear it.

What to wear it with was the next question and these skinny cords by Oui are perfect together with the long sleeved tee.

Of course I had to include my Isabel Marant hidden wedge trainers which I love and wear loads, so I knew that they would be perfect with this outfit.

I do believe that Oui is a great brand to wear with Isabel Marant, it is great style at an  excellent price point.
