“what else do you need” a thought provoking question.

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.

No trip is ever complete without a new hat, I already have a wall full of them but there is always room for another.

And now the Lima Dreaming wardrobe is complete!

Outfit of the day Lima Dreaming style it’s about beach life..

Call me sad but today I worked out that it is only 159 days until my annual Lima Dreaming trip so my thoughts have naturally turned to the beach. I always leave my clothes behind so I have a good collection waiting for me but each year I like to add a few new pieces.

This outfit would take me to the local restaurants at the beach (Punta Hermosa)  and also for walks in Lima (with a bellini as a reward)

My new label love Berenice a little Parisian chic ……

Yesterday afternoon when I was in Harvey Nichols I tried some dresses for Lima Dreaming by Berenice and I have to admit it will be my new go to label. Unfortunately I cannot find any where to buy it online,  www.berenice.net is the official website but you cannot buy (tears), there is a stand alone store on South Molton Street London and it is available in Harvey Nichols Manchester and Edinburgh stores.

This emerald green  ROSE dress is so pretty and I cannot wait to wear it.

The VISHAL dress in navy is another to add to my  Lima Dreaming collection

I may have to go back soon for the VAINA playsuit it is so pretty

I would team this VALDA top with some cute denim shorts

Cute MATTEW shorts

Something for a chilli breeze JONNA scarf

DALYA hat we all need a cool sun hat

You need this ZIGGY bag just because it’s gorgeous

 

 

 

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.

Beautiful beachwear with Poupette St Barth stylish and pretty

It is a very grey and wet Sunday so what better way to enjoy it than to choose yourself a new beach wardrobe!  There are bikinis everywhere at the moment but I do love great beach cover ups.

You need things that are super stylish, very pretty and maybe a little practical (not really important). Just add gorgeous sandals and you are ready for cocktail hour.  Everything that Poupette St Barth have is beautiful I would love to wear all of it.

I would wear my Sophia Webster Lilico sandals or my Valentino rock studs in orange  (lucky girl)

All of these pieces are perfect for my Lima Dreaming (its never to early to start dreaming) it will here before I know it.

All of the Poupette St Barth items are available www.mytheresa.com

Must have item of the day Whistles Resort Imogen linen playsuit………

This Whistles playsuit in orange linen (I love orange) would work perfectly as a Lima Dreaming piece, I could wear it at the beach (eating out or messing around) or in Lima (cocktail time) I do believe my Sophia Webster Lilico sandals would work so well with it.

Over the years I have amassed a summer wardrobe that I never bring home but I always add to it. A few new bikinis and dresses it keeps it all looking fresh.

Holiday Wardrobe Pieces You Need|Bikinis and Dresses|

Today I have an overwhelming need to lie in the sun so I have been dreaming of being in Lima.

Just to stand on the balcony and look at the ocean would be wonderful, maybe a Bellini in my hand would be nice too!!

These are the pieces I would like in my “Lima Wardrobe” whether I go soon or at christmas. I just love the beach life it is so laid back and all you need are bikini’s and shorts, well nearly!!

I have found  a great piece that would be perfect for my “surfing” days!! You need to look good in water as well as on the beach.

I find nearly all of my favourite beachwear at Heidi Klein and Beachcafe  so I hope you like them too. I have Heidi Klein bikinis in Lima that I have worn for quite a few years now and they still look amazing.

Here is reminder as to why I am day dreaming it is so BEAUTIFUL!
