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)

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.

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

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)

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

Outfit of the day its pleats and loafers all the way…….

This is currently my favourite piece in my wardrobe a Whistles green satin pleated skirt that just looks amazing. It goes against everything that I have always believed “I look terrible in pleated skirts” The weight and the size of the pleats make it hang straight rather than ballooning out over hips and bum!

I wore it with a Whistles navy logo tee and mustard yellow Gucci loafers .

The skirt that looks like a mermaids tail and I love it!

Look of the day Whistles pleated skirt & a simple tee….

I do love a pleated skirt but they don’t always love me (being quite short!) but this one by Whistles has a sheer lace bottom which will give the illusion of height. I would wear it with a simple tee which usually means a Whistle’s logo tee and my Kurt Geiger platforms.

Another great outfit for work!

New “black” wardrobe additions|Navy linen trousers|

I went looking for some new wardrobe must haves for work today. After a few days of feeling very hot in black I knew some urgent additions were needed!

I found some linen trousers in Zara which I think will work very well. Then I found these flat sandals which will keep the “Health & Safety” people happy as they have closed toes but are so pretty and comfortable.

I then had a good rummage around Topshop and found a couple of great black skirts which will work with the new flats.

Then it was a quick visit to COS and I found a great navy dress. I still can’t find many tops but it gives me the excuse to keep searching!!

Pleated Skirts

There are so many of them out there at the moment and I think there is a shape and length for everyone. I love pleats but being quite small they can bury me but I know that with a bit of experimenting I will find one I love.

I think my passion for pleats started yesterday when I included the leather skirt by Alice & Olivia, that was definitely a case of love at first sight.
