A Lima Dreaming dilemma black or white slides?

It has become a tradition (I do love a good tradition) that every year I take a new pair of Sophia Webster sandals to Peru as part of my “Lima Dreaming” wardrobe.

This year I love these Sophia Webster slides but do I choose black or white they are both so pretty. Both would work well with my wardrobe and both would work well with a tan! DILEMMA

“what else do you need” a thought provoking question.

It was early this morning when I was discussing my Lima Dreaming wardrobe with the King of Peru that he uttered the words “what else do you need” I immediately replied nothing because it is the correct answer in theory!

Yesterday I added two Mango playsuits to the mix and there is a Seafolly sundress waiting for me also but what else could complete my “Lima Dreaming” wardrobe .

I do have quite a few pairs of sandals but every year tradition dictates (I love traditions) I take a new pair of  Sophia Websters to add to the collection. These would go with everything and I could wear them for beach or city.

A new bikini is an essential addition every year but I always struggle to find bright colours in a style I like. This orange one is beautiful but I would mix and match it with other block colours. I have Heidi Klein bikinis that have been in Peru now for ten years and they always look as good as new.

No trip is ever complete without a new hat, I already have a wall full of them but there is always room for another.

Lolu Rhoda Jewellery | Pretty Jewellery Finds |

I love to find new brands and Lolu Rhoda was recommended to me on this basis and I am not disppointed.

The designer watched her mother make jewellery in Italy and  decided to create herself.

The pieces are all gold/rhodium plated with stones such as Amethyst, Opals & Crystals and best of all they won’t date. These are pieces that you can wear year after year. Everything I have included is on sale and therefore too good to miss. I am looking forward to seeing the new collection.
