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.

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

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!

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.

Major obsession alert Valentino submerge rockstuds!

Well I do love a Valentino rockstud but these submerge rockstud sandals are just gorgeous. I have always likde a  Birkenstock style sandal, moulded soles and all so imagine my delight upon seeing these blue beauties.

Lima Dreaming countdown it’s 8 days and it’s all about beach life………….

The excitement is growing as I am in single digits only 8 days to go! I am looking forward to swapping my wonderful British pallor for gorgeous sun tanned limbs. The thought of wearing my shorts and sandals are keeping me awake as I think of all the outfit combinations, (there are many pairs of shorts and sandals) really sad I know.

Here are a few more images of things that play a huge part in our beach life. The surfboards belong to the King of Peru I would rather have a beach towel and a bikini!
