Only 5 more days to go to Lima Dreaming I am so excited …….

Recent events have meant that this year I haven’t done my usual Lima Dreaming countdown, an unexpected trip to Canada to see a very poorly little boy followed by an unexpected stay in Schipol airport certainly dampened my enthusiasm a little.

Tonight however I am sat here thinking only 5 more days and I will be on that plane Lima Dreaming all of the way.

I have so many little treats to take with me to add to my already beautiful wardrobe.

Every year I take a few additions to freshen up my wardrobe some of my pieces have been there for ten years and I still enjoy them.

This year I am taking:

Valentino slides

Zara off the shoulder dress

Zara printed denim shorts £25.99 here

My gorgeous Valentino sandals (these are Lima veterans) with The King of Peru in Guidi)

Beach toes in Valentino Rockstuds and Guidi Flipflops

Berenice Rose emerald green pretty dress

Pampelone 55 blouse

Zara embroidered denim shorts £25.99 here

I am sure there a few other things tucked away waiting to go in my suitcase, we shall see…………….





My new label love Berenice a little Parisian chic ……

Yesterday afternoon when I was in Harvey Nichols I tried some dresses for Lima Dreaming by Berenice and I have to admit it will be my new go to label. Unfortunately I cannot find any where to buy it online,  www.berenice.net is the official website but you cannot buy (tears), there is a stand alone store on South Molton Street London and it is available in Harvey Nichols Manchester and Edinburgh stores.

This emerald green  ROSE dress is so pretty and I cannot wait to wear it.

The VISHAL dress in navy is another to add to my  Lima Dreaming collection

I may have to go back soon for the VAINA playsuit it is so pretty

I would team this VALDA top with some cute denim shorts

Cute MATTEW shorts

Something for a chilli breeze JONNA scarf

DALYA hat we all need a cool sun hat

You need this ZIGGY bag just because it’s gorgeous




My wishlist for a break at Lake Como |Holiday wardrobe|

I have just booked a few days in Lake Como for the end of August so my thoughts have now turned to my wardrobe. Most of my summer clothes are currently living in Peru where they patiently await my annual visit.

I do have some pieces here that I cam work around but I will need to buy one or two new things!!

The star of the show for those long hot days will be my Charo Ruiz blue skirt which has now sold out but it is still available in white, gorgeous for showing off those tanned legs! and my Sergio Rossi orange sandals.

Denim shorts are crucial as well as an Isabel Marant linen tee teamed with pale blue Birkenstocks for long lazy walks.

This Juliet Dunn dress is perfect for either cocktails or a trip into Milan.

I have picked the cross body bag by Valentino as it is just perfect for carrying at all times and large enough for the essential “hot weather repair kit”

One Stop Holiday Shop|House of Fraser Holiday Clothes|

As you may all be aware I am always on look out for holiday clothes, things to add to my “Lima Dreaming ” list!

Today it seemed like a really good idea to have a look to see if I could get it all from one website but also at reasonable prices.  House of Fraser has absolutely everything that you could need for your holiday wardrobe and to make it all even better a lot of the items I have included are on sale.

You will be surprised at the number of brands that are included on their website, obviously not all are in store but hey just order on line, pick it up in store, try it all on and refund what you don’t like.  If you order today it will be in store tomorrow, you can’t ask for better service.
