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

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.

Reasons for and against Biker jacket v Aviator jacket

All of my thoughts have turned either my trip to Canada in October or Lima Dreaming at the end of December, two very different trips with very different weather.

I spotted this burgundy biker jacket by Zara the other day and I fell completely in love with colour. I am already planning outfits and deciding what bags would work with it.

My reasoning for my desperate need to buy this jacket is my trip to Canada. I an going to Vancouver Island so the weather shouldn’t be freezing at the end of October but it will be wet some days. I would team it with my new corduroy cap, also from Zara for a perfect combination for walks, play parks as I will be with my little munchkins.

The only downside to this jacket is the zip, I don’t know how i feel about the diagonal zip! I know this may seem trivial but I would rarely fasten it and this is why I like symmetry.

So, the question is should I opt for the Aviator jacket instead? It is only available in black but it gives perfect symmetry when open and the new cap would still work perfectly.   it would go over anything and everything ) It would also mean I could stick with my beautiful colourful bags (very important)

I do think I need to go to Zara and try them both on immediately.

I could add to the drama by including other jackets in the dilemma but at this price point it keeps it fun.
