It has been a week of discovering so many pretty things…..

I have to say that this week has been a week of potential major obsessions and I mean MAJOR I even found the prettiest dress ever for my Lima Dreaming wardrobe. (really)

Poupette St Barths Sasha printed dress £218 here

It is that time of the year when the christmas party becomes the topic of conversation and “what to wear”. I am not one for glitter and sequins so when I spotted this Whistles navy skirt I knew I had found  my outfit and I can wear it afterwards (many times). I will team it with a Whistles tee and some old but beautiful Prada silver wedges.

Whistles Au Revoir logo tee £49 here

Whistles Satin Pleated Skirt £139 here

and to finish it off my Prada wedges, I am not sure how long I can dance in them but they are so pretty.

I can’t resist a good hoodie at the moment they are my new found friends

Zara sweatshirt with textured hood £29.99 here

These slides are the things dreams are made of (mine anyway) and are perfect for Lima Dreaming, it is a shame I already have so many pretty sandals (apparently it’s written in stone)

Valentino Free Rockstud Slide Sandals in azure £535 here

This bag will complete my party outfit

Kurt Geiger London Tweed Kensington Bag £95.20 here

I think that may be all this week but I am sure there are so many pretty things out there.

Heels and flats 10 pairs of new season Mary Jane’s to love……

It is that time of year when all of my thoughts turn to a new season wardrobe. Today I am obsessing about shoes (nothing new there) that I can wear all day in store, personal shopping can be gruelling (in a wonderful way).

I alway love a Mary Jane shoe, they are so easy to walk in, the strap just adds a little more support.

For the past few weeks I have been looking  at these Kurt Geiger flats (obviously I have tried them) and I do love them but I have found a few alternatives!

KG Kurt Geiger Kingly Flats £119 here

The black suede with a jewelled strap make them perfect for winter wear.

I do have a very pretty pair of Miu Miu sparkly flat mary janes already but can you really ever too many pairs of Miu Miu’s

This midnight blue pair are just beautiful, but perhaps a little too high for walking all day.

Miu Miu Embellished Velvet Pumps £685 here

Sticking with dark blue this velvet pair by Prada are pretty perfect with a great heel height.

Prada Velvet Pumps £455 here

Metallics work so well for me in the winter, I use them to dress up denim.

Gucci leather mary janes £485 here

Back to sparkly again !

Valentino V Rock Glitter Pumps £625 here

More jewels and a great price point!

Zara bejewelled strap kitten heels £59.99 here

And another great pair from Zara

Zara kitten heel courts with buckle £25.99 here

I dont mind open toes for winter I would just put them on at work, these are just beautiful.

Anthropologie Janya Velvet Heels £178 here

A little different.

Reike – New block heel Mary Janes £225 here

I dont think I have ever had a more comfortable pair of shoes than a silver pair from Finery so I have no hesitation in including this candy pink pair.

Finery Pale Pink Suede Shoes £99 here

 

Look of the day with Etre Cecile and Isabel Marant candy striped…..

I love this Etre Cecile tee and I it would work so well with these Isabel Marant striped pants for a laid back summer vibe.

What shoes would I wear hmm that is the question!

Etre Cecile printed cotton tee £75 here

Isabel Marant Selina Cotton Trousers £285 here

I think it will have to be my Carvela Kurt Geiger Kitten sandals £110 here

Carvela Silver flatform embellished sandals for summer…

I have had a mini obsession with these sandals for a few weeks now as I know they will be amazing for summer with jeans, dresses, jumpsuits shorts…. (everything REALLY)

Well now that they are mine (very lucky ) I cannot wait to wear them  tomorrow (day off please don’t rain) with jeans and something (not yet decided)

They will also be perfect for Lima Dreaming long walks!

Must have item of the day Gucci silver loafers……………

I am a huge fan of Gucci loafers at the moment and the colours are wonderful but for me you cannot  beat  metallics (I do have a few pairs!) Today I debated wether or not I loved the silver or gold loafers more but I really cannot decide so today there two must haves.

Gucci silver fringed loafers £495 here 

Gucci gold loafers £545 here

Look of the day at Zara navy choker dress & metallics…

I tried this dress earlier with todays “must have item” (silver platform sneakers) and it looked just perfect. It certainly helps that I still have the remnants of my Peruvian tan.

For me it is a perfect work day outfit.

Zara Choker Dress with Gathered Sleeves £29.99 here

Must have item of the day Russell & Bromley Gilbert pewter boots…………

Earlier today I was thinking I wish I had flat boots to take me through the hectic run up to Christmas and beyond (retail can be hectic) I didn’t want biker boots and then after looking at many websites I found these. In the flat boot category they are perfection as they would team so well with bare legs (I hate tights) and dresses. They would look pretty cool with cropped jeans as well!

Russell & Bromley Gilbert Tassel Fringe Ankle Boots £265 here

Party shoes you know you want (not need) Valentino Astrocouture Mary Janes…

Forget the price or the height of the heels these shoes are amazing!! They would make you feel like the queen in a £10 party dress. Imagine how good they would feel with jeans and oversized cosy knit. (heaven)

Valentino Astrocouture Suede Mary Jane Shoes £820 here

I have to say I love most things that come out of  & Other Stories but these shoes are JUST PERFECT for autumn/winter!  Wear them with cropped jeans, a black dress or just about anything else and they will always look amazing.
