Outfit of the day yesterday I was loving my Zara trilogy

Yesterday I wore not one but three items from Zara and it looked and  felt pretty good.  It was a  busy Saturday in the personal shopping suite so there was a lot of walking involved but I felt great all day.

My top 10 winter dresses to wear everyday ……..

10 dresses to wear for work with my Michael Kors pumps….

Remember I mentioned these pumps earlier in the week well as I have to walk past them all of the time at work I have decided they need to be mine. (very pretty and very comfortable)

I know that they will work with almost everything I wear in store but with a new season upon us a few dresses or jumpsuits  to showcase the pumps would always be welcome!

So many more additions to my winter wish list…..

There are so many pieces landing at the moment I barely know which way to turn! I love to wear new clothes instantly I am not very good at keeping them until the weather changes. The things I love today can all be worn now which makes it so much more fun.

This faux suede trench from Zara is very useful with the wonderful weather we are having.  It would go over everything and keep away the morning chill in a very pretty way.

I also love the coat below, it has a hood which I love and it definitley has a Isabel Marant feel about it. I am thinking this would be perfect for my Canadian adventure in October.

The perfect pair of jeans is always a challenge and I think I have found my next pair.

The colour of this Isabel Marant top is just gorgeous and I do like to add a piece to two every season.

I cant have a wish list without a Isabel Marant dress it just wouldn’t be right.

There are not so many shoes around at the moment that I love , or do I just have too many pairs already!

I tried these KG velvet pumps on in store (House of Fraser) and I love them. They feel very comfortable and look gorgeous, just perfect for personal shopping.  Unfortunatley they don’t appear to be on any websites yet.

KG Kurt Geiger velvet pumps £119

No matter what anyone says  I really want a pair of furry slides and I have found the perfect pair. They are super comfortable and will take me well into autumn (perfect for flying) I have already tried them and the size 3 was so big the 2 fit me (help)

Zara Faux Fur Slides £49.99 here

 

 

 

Adidas Originals plus three different outfits for now…

Finding cool but very comfortable footwear is very important for me (obsessively so) as being a personal shopper means I am running around the store all day. Whilst wearing really pretty shoes are nice (think Valentino Rockstuds) they are also not practical after three hours of walking!

These Adidas Originals sneakers caught my eye today and I know they will work so well now (hot & sticky store) and into autumn.

An endless supply of Whistles slogan tees also help.

Adidas Originals Superstar Bold leather sneakers £96 here

Teamed with:

Whistles Wanderlust Tee £49 here

Zara Skirt with Metal Grommets £25.99 here

Zara Oversized Shirt £25.99 here (love the frill on the back)

Lima Dreaming with a Zara embroidered dress…….

This little beauty has Lima Dreaming written all over it, I could hear it calling to me in Zara at lunchtime.

I will wear it London on Friday as it will be 29 degrees then it will wing it’s way to South America  where it will live happily ever after! It will be perfect for beach life and weekends in Lima.

I would quite like to team it with these Topshop fluffy slides as well (can’t resist a fluffy slide) by coincidence the pale blue is only available in a 36 lucky me!!

Just loving Isabel Marant Lyin Cotton Ruffle Dress……

I see me in this dress with a great pair of ankle boots (Isabel Marant Danae boots) to give it an edge. It is a very cute dress so on me it would need the attitude only ankle boots can bring!

Isabel Marant Etoile Lyin ruffle dress £335 here

 

Look of the day a Whistles dress layered over jeans….

Now that I am working for Whistles I have the perfect excuse to wear my lovely clothes and call them uniform! (what more do you need!)

However we never have the weather to make use of all of them and in particular the Juana Alisha Print dress so I have layered it over jeans and the result was pretty cool.

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

 

 

 

Must have item of the day Whistles cotton embroidered dress

Another guilt free dress, I will wear it here for the summer and then it will be Lima Dreaming.

These Whistles sandals are a perfect  accessory for this dress although I do have choices when it comes to sandals!
