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 .
Mango ruffle off the shoulder playsuit £25.99 here
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.
Sophia Webster Becky Gem slides £295 here
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.
Heidi Klein Folly Island balcony bikini £186 here
No trip is ever complete without a new hat, I already have a wall full of them but there is always room for another.
EMILY – LONDON Martinique white & gold resort hat £285 here
And now the Lima Dreaming wardrobe is complete!
I adore navy blue and bardot dresses so this Zara dress is pretty perfect. It is something I can wear for work (personal shopping) with bare legs (tanned) and a cool pair oaf ankle boots or over jeans with pumps.
These Isabel Marant boots are on my winter wish list and they will work so well now with bare legs and all through the winter.
Zara off the shoulder poplin dress £29.99 here
Isabel Marant Dawell Ankle Boots £420 here
I always love pretty denim pieces when summer arrives and a denim jumpsuit is just wonderful. (I do love a jumpsuit)
I know autumn is only a moment away but some of these pieces will see you through to cooler days. I will be lucky enough to have my summer again in January (Lima Dreaming)
This jumpsuit at Anthropologie is probably the perfect place to start and the Whistles pink denim jacket a perfect finish.

This little beauty has Lima Dreaming written all over it, I could hear it calling to me in Zara at lunchtime.
I will wear it London on Friday as it will be 29 degrees then it will wing it’s way to South America where it will live happily ever after! It will be perfect for beach life and weekends in Lima.
I would quite like to team it with these Topshop fluffy slides as well (can’t resist a fluffy slide) by coincidence the pale blue is only available in a 36 lucky me!!

I am so excited by this top why you may think, well it’s a bardot and it’s navy so the combination is perfect. I do hope that it turns up in store this week (House of Fraser Manchester).
It is a top I would wear so many times with jeans and my beloved side striped pants.
Whistles Flume Frill Bardot Top £99 here
No matter how hard I try I will not be able to resist this dress it is gorgeous. I will wear it over jeans until the days are a little warmer although it will look good with a pair of Isabel Marant Danae boots! I do think it has Lima Dreaming potential as well!!
Zara with embroidered sleeves £39.99 here
This is just gorgeous and I think i need it a lot! I would wear it over jeans until the weather warms up I think bare legs and shoulders would be a little chilly.
