10 Summer dresses you can wear anywhere……

I really do love a summer dress and I am very partial to an off the shoulder and pale blue. This dress from Other stories has started me thinking about warmer days and bare legs (I could keep my feet warm with the Miu Miu slides)

How on earth can you choose from all of the gorgeous things  on offer at Whistles.. My confusion started yesterday when two boho tops arrived in store (House of FraserManchester) and continued when I checked everything that was new on the website. There is so much colour and all of the main trends I really cannot decide which is my favourite piece but these are my favourites.

Must have item of the day Pinko striped dress…………….

Well here I am back in the grey UK I am missing the gorgeous Peruvian sunshine already. Looking on the bright side I have brought a wonderful tan back with me and it would look so good with this Pinko dress I spotted in Harvey Nichols. 

It would look so good with wither my Sophia Webster Lilico Slides or my new love the Sophia Webster Lilico Jessie mule sneakers  (see below)

Must have item of the day I would love to wear this dress……..

I really would! The colour is gorgeous and I do love a cold shoulder or two. I am inspired by the fact that this would look amazing with my current tan (improving everyday) and my blue Sophia Webster Lilico slides.

The cold shoulder dress thing could become an obsession, after my purchase in Zara (yes it’s in Lima too) on Sunday. I managed to get an off the shoulder dress in blue and white stripes that I saw back home when it was out in the summer and didn’t buy NOW I have it and it looks so much better with a tan. It was also a steal at about £30.

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

Denim & Supply Ralph Lauren Esme Tunic £140 here

Outfit of the day Jumpsuit & Sneakers| Cold Shoulder Jumpsuits|

I really need an outfit that I can use for an evening out but I can wear everyday for work and I think I have the perfect solution. This black jumpsuit from Whistles will work perfectly in so many ways. I can wear my platforms for the evening and sneakers to run around in all day.

I also need excuse to wear my beautiful Prada wedges which I have had for quite awhile now but hardly ever wear.
