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.

Whistles Ellen Casual Shirt £89 here

Whistles Alisha Spilt Hem Pants £99 here

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

Whistles Alia Shearling Slides £139 here

Sophia Webster Lilico slides mine are last years but there are different colours available here

Whistles Juana Alisha Dress £149 here

This dress will also work with the shearling slides here but I will team it with my Valentino Rockstud sandals as well.

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.

The Whistles pieces I need in my life right now……..

As everyone  knows I do love a little (or a lot) Whistles in my wardrobe  and today I have spotted some great pieces that I can wear to work and for Lima Dreaming.

 

Completely love this khaki Utility Jacket £119 here

I would team it with these amazing Tassel Trim Trousers £129 here

This top is great for now and it will then travel to Lima to wear with shorts Linen Bardot Top £95 here

It would work so well with these distresses jeans £95 here

Love a logo tee Rue Sacre Coeur £49 here

These would work so well with a simple tee Cargo Pants £119 here

I really do love a summer dress and I am very partial to an off the shoulder and pale blue. This dress from Other stories has started me thinking about warmer days and bare legs (I could keep my feet warm with the Miu Miu slides)

Must have item of the day simplicity in a crisp white linen tunic

There are so many ways that I could wear this Zara linen tunic, I am thinking it would work so well over my MO&CO side striped pants and a pair of Rockstuds then with my cropped frayed jeans and Isabel Marant yellow moccasins for a laid back look.

I am also quite sure it has all of the elements for Lima Dreaming Style!

Luxe Life Haider Ackermann a perfect linen bomber jacket…

I do love a good bomber and an interesting  colouway is one of my favourite features. This one by Haider Ackermann is by far my favourite colour combination yet and so perfect for spring/summer.
