Holiday packing! Why do we pack so many things?

It is a standing joke that I spend eleven months of every year looking for my “Lima Dreaming” outfits but when I actually arrive I wear denim shorts for most of the three weeks. I want to wear different things but the lifestyle either at the beach or in the city calls for simple outfits.

I have been here five days so far and I have worn:

Zara embroidered shorts £17.99 Pampelone 55 blouse Valentino Rockstud slides (blouse & slides were bought earlier in year)

Whistles Alisha Split Hem Trousers £79  Whistles Ellen Casual Shirt £40 Havaianas in black £45

Seafolly black dress £85 Seafolly Indian Summer bandeau top £36 Seafolly pleated hipster bikini bottoms £39


I know I will wear these Zara printed shorts £17.99 and some old favourites my Denim & Supply dress and my beautiful Valentino Rockstud sandals

For my own sake I will update this post should I find hidden gems in my wardrobe here in Peru or actually wear everything in my case.


Tales from a personal shopping life 16/3/16…….is it Lima Dreaming time already?

It has been a little quiet in the personal shopping suite due mainly to “no shows” so frustrating but all part of the job!!

On Monday I had a lovely lady who had been given a gift voucher by her friends for her 40th birthday. We had a lovely time as she spent way more than the voucher but was so happy to have new clothes to take to London this weekend. She finished off her visit with a mini makeover at the Clarins counter.

A few of the London outfits:

Tuesday brought me a double act, a customer and her neighbour!! They are off on a cruise in May but my lady wanted every outfit sorted in advance. The visit was all about her evening wear and we achieved that easily but the really nice bit was she could wear her locket with every outfit. Her husband had recently died and she carried his photo in the beautiful locket, she was so happy that she wouldn’t have to take it off.

Are there any mini obsessions going on at the moment? Well the navy Stefanel jumpsuit that I loved last week doesn’t suit me at all so I am over that one!! I do however love this cardigan. I think this would work so well with my existing jumpsuits.

Stefanel Patterned Bourette Cardigan £190 here


I have just spotted these sandals on Mytheresa definitely a mini obsession! Isabel Marant often turns into an obsession as we all know!!

I hope you all enjoy the rest of the week and I will see you on Sunday with more mini obsessions!!
