Lima Dreaming countdown it’s 8 days and it’s all about beach life………….

The excitement is growing as I am in single digits only 8 days to go! I am looking forward to swapping my wonderful British pallor for gorgeous sun tanned limbs. The thought of wearing my shorts and sandals are keeping me awake as I think of all the outfit combinations, (there are many pairs of shorts and sandals) really sad I know.

Here are a few more images of things that play a huge part in our beach life. The surfboards belong to the King of Peru I would rather have a beach towel and a bikini!

Zara shorts and Sergio Rossi sandals (We have Zara in Lima)

Lima Dreaming Countdown 11 Days To Beachlife…………

The excitement is building with only eleven days to go!! When we are in Peru we always split out time, its weekends in Lima and weekdays at the beach. I know my clothes will be in the wardrobe waiting for me, the beach, the food, the walks the view it is all amazing. It is time just spent chilling on the beach whilst the King of Peru surfs (I may give it go again) or walking along the coast for Piccarones (a bit like donuts but way better) or doing nothing at all.

These are some of the things I am l looking forward to at the beach.

My Charo Ruiz Ibiza skirt (love the colour)

Sergio Rossi sandals (tanned legs and orange sandals)

Hats (I do love my sun hats)

Sitting on the beach (me taken through a zoom lens)

My Lima Dreaming countdown it is a colourful market day…………………

Not very long to our annual trip to Lima now and I am so excited!  Peru is full of colour where ever you look from the blue skies to amazing flowers but the local markets are also full of treasures.

My Lima Dreaming countdown has begun with a view………….

It is grey outside today so I thought I would share a little sunshine and ocean with everyone. I always say I won’t countdown the days until Lima every year but once I get to mid November I just can’t help myself. (it is 43 days to go) It isn’t wishing my life away it is just pure excitement to see family, walk on the sand, enjoy the sun and enjoy a Bellini to two!

This view always brings tears to my eyes (happy not sad) on the first morning and it is usually accompanied by a breakfast Mimosa or a Bellini.

Lima Dreaming Wish List|Where to buy winter sun clothes now|

The countdown is on, its only a few weeks now to my annual Peruvian adventure YEAHHH. I have been going through my summer clothes and deciding what I need to buy. I have to admit I do forget what I already have in my wardrobe in Lima but it is always a nice surprise when I get there!!
