My search for a navy jumpsuit I can wear everyday….

My work wardrobe needs a few new pieces and after searching for skirts and dresses that I can wear everyday (and failing) I have decided a new jumpsuit is the way forward.

One of my only requirements (apart from it bring navy) is pockets! I need somewhere to keep my swipe card. (vital)

Today I tried this navy jumpsuit from French Connection and it does look very nice. I have found another two potential candidates so I will try them all.

Lima Dreaming! Do I really think about it all year?

After reading an article in Vogue by Serena Hood regarding how she shops more for holidays and summer days than winter and I realised that it also applies to me.

Virtually everything I buy from February onwards I tell myself “oh that is perfect for here and Lima Dreaming” I wear clothes here in the summer and then they go to Peru in December and they gain another identity. Sometimes they travel back to the UK but mostly they live in Peru and very year I resurrect different treasures that I had forgotten about.

Currently I am having fun choosing  pieces for my new job  (Whistles) and I know that I will wear  them here and some pieces  will also look amazing in Lima.

I have realised that this way of shopping maximises the fun and minimises the guilt of shopping.

This outfit will work so well my shearling slides here and my Sophia Webster slides in Lima.

Whistles Nadia Denim Frill Jumpsuit £159 here This is definitely one of my favourite buys this year and I already wear it for work and I will wear it in Lima dresses down.

I have just spotted another perfect pair of slides for both home and away and they will be perfect with this jumpsuit! They are also available in pink and I cannot decide which is my favourite!

Valentino Rockstud Slides £190 here

This next dress will look amazing with these slides both home and away.

It is so much fun choosing outfits this way and it’s no wonder that I do it for 11 months of the year, the other month I am actually living my Lima dream.

Holiday shop! it is that time of year again sunshine & bikinis

I do realise that it is only March and I won’t be going to the beach until January but if I don’t buy then now then I can never find anything I love. Today I have found so many things that would work  well in Peru that I feel spoilt for choice.

I am afraid I only ever choose bandeau bikinis as I don’t like straps and they suit my shape better.

Also you  can never have too many coverups, I wear mine to breakfast, to the beach for dinner and cocktails so I need a few, although on my last trip I wore a black Seafolly coverup so many times as I love it.

 

Seafolly Spice Temple Bikini £118 here

Must have item of the day Whistles Mae yellow jumpsuit…….

This would be perfect for me in work (personal shopping) or for a wedding (after all its the season is starting), just change the shoes. It would look just as good with sneakers as it would heels.
