10 things you need from Ganni for your spring/summer wardrobe.

Ganni has passed in and out of my wardrobe fora few years but I am having a major love affair with them at the moment.

The styling is cool and price point is perfect.

I love to wear little dresses and ankle boots and this this little number is right at the top pf my list. It would look so good with Isabel Marant white cracked leather ankle boots. (I don’t have them yet but who knows what can happen!!)

Ganni Palmer Dress £140 here

Teamed with the perfect ankle boots

Isabel Marant Danay Boots £485 here

These next pieces work so well together but both are versatile in their own right. The jumper would easily become a wardrobe favourite and would replace my sweatshirt phase! Oh and the boots would work so well!

Ganni Muller Rollneck £330  here

Ganni Roseberg Printed Skirt £120 here

I do the next dress, it’s navy blue and the length and shape I love. I would definitely style this one with the boots. (fashion maths cost per wear etc)

Ganni Marceau Georgette Mini Dress £140 here

I do love a great white tee but they are never easy to find but this one looks just perfect. I would wear loads with one of many pairs of side striped pants .

Ganni Harway Tee Global Citizen £60 here

Ganni Dubois Track pants £130 here

I am not sure if it’s the colour or the dress or both! I love a midi dress and I do love sports luxe so this dress is spot on,  I could wear either my platform sneakers or the Isabel boots depending on the mood.

Ganni Dubois Woven Midi Dress £190 here

I do love a pale blue top for summer and this little blouse is so pretty, it would work so well the frilled skirt above and the jeans below. (Oh and those Isabel boots again)

Ganni Charron Striped Seersucker Top £120 here

Ganni Compton Denim Jeans £130 here

I cannot leave without adding a pair of Ganni’s super cute sneakers, they would also work so well with everything. This pair are are exclusive to Mytheresa.com

Ganni Augusta Leather Sneakers £250 here

 

Dresses! my pick of the new season day dresses…..

It all started yesterday I tried a Whistles dress that was too big for me but I knew the potential was huge. I did eventually find my size on line and I cannot wait to try it (the shoe possibilities are interesting).

This however piqued my interest and I decided that my work wardrobe needs a refresh and I love wearing dresses that I can team with ankle boots, sneakers or pretty shoes.

The dress that started the search

Whistles Scarf Print Dress was £169 now £80 here

This dress is much longer on me and I would style it differently! I am thinking my yellow Gucci loafers will look very cool.

My go to brands for dresses is always Whistles or Isabel Marant and this one is perfect.

Isabel Marant Etoile Vicky lace trimmed cotton dress £395 here

This dress by M.i.h is beautiful and I think that a tan is required but it is simply gorgeous.

M.i.h Jeans Kirby Dress £375 here

I actually sold this one yesterday to a personal shopping client and it looked beautiful.

Whistles Cynthia tie waist dress £139 here

A midi dress is always a good option for me and this one from Other Stories comes in two great colours.

When it comes to dresses the french brands always seem to get it right and this one by Sandro is beautiful.

Sandro Silk Dress £207 here

I do love MO&CO and this dress doesn’t disappoint.

MO&CO floral silk georgette dress was £210 now £63 here

I will finish with a dress that I have just fallen for and it comes in three different colour ways.

These two are available on www.mytheresa.com

Holiday packing! Why do we pack so many things?

It is a standing joke that I spend eleven months of every year looking for my “Lima Dreaming” outfits but when I actually arrive I wear denim shorts for most of the three weeks. I want to wear different things but the lifestyle either at the beach or in the city calls for simple outfits.

I have been here five days so far and I have worn:

Zara embroidered shorts £17.99 Pampelone 55 blouse Valentino Rockstud slides (blouse & slides were bought earlier in year)

Whistles Alisha Split Hem Trousers £79  Whistles Ellen Casual Shirt £40 Havaianas in black £45

Seafolly black dress £85 Seafolly Indian Summer bandeau top £36 Seafolly pleated hipster bikini bottoms £39

 

I know I will wear these Zara printed shorts £17.99 and some old favourites my Denim & Supply dress and my beautiful Valentino Rockstud sandals

For my own sake I will update this post should I find hidden gems in my wardrobe here in Peru or actually wear everything in my case.

 

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…………….

 

 

 

 

Take one Isabel Marant dress, slides and two pairs of boots…….

I do love an Isabel Marant dress I can always do so much with them just by changing the shoes. This dress has had me thinking (a lot for a long time) about different shoes in different locations, I am thinking Lima Dreaming and winter in Manchester.

These would be my favourite combinations:

Isabel Marant Lyon cotton voile mini dress £335 here

For work (personal shopping) pretty and comfortable.

Zara over the knee boots £59.99 here

Lima Dreaming in the sunshine with a cool pair of slides.

Isabel Marant Hellea Metallic Slides £295 here

I always need a cool pair of ankle boots (this would involve fake tan and a warm coat). In reality either my suede or snake effect Isabel Marant Danae boots would work perfectly but check this python pair I spotted today!

Isabel Marant Danae printed python boots £655 here 

 

 

 

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.

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.

Zara Faux Suede Trench £59.99 here

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.

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)
