I am without a doubt hooked on Chloe’s spring/summer collection. I really love the white boots (I may have mentioned this before!) and floaty dresses. All of my efforts have been focused on perfecting this look from the high street and these are the results.

With thoughts of my trip to Canada in April already filling my head it will come as no surprise to know that I am wondering what to take with me!
I know the weather will be unpredictable but it will mild and although I will take my parka and I know I will need a lighter jacket.
In the last few days I have spotted two in Whistles and they will both work so well with jeans and over a sweatshirt/jumper in Canada. I know they will also work over most of my clothes here and I am especially thinking of my playsuits.
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)

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.
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.
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.
I do love a pretty dress whether its mini or midi (Idon’t do maxi dresses) I can team them with either ankle or over the knee boots. I do not like wearing tights so on colder days my legs are covered both ways
There are so many to choose from this season but these are my favourites, just a add a great coat.
