Just love this Hobbs Star Cropped Wool/Cashmere Sweater……….

This sweater is the answer to all of my “knit” prayers!! I wanted cashmere (I know its only a mix) I wanted cropped and I wanted interesting.so when I spotted this in store today I couldn’t wait to try it, I knew it would be perfect. (I was right)

I may even take a photo to share tomorrow!!

& Other Stories Ditzy Frill Dress…..just love it

I spotted this dress awhile back and I loved it but never tried it and now I keep going back to it. For me it would be easy to wear with bare legs and ankle boots (unless it’s freezing!) It has that pretty but edgy look that I fall for all of the time.

Coast Bliss Skirt | Tulle & Organza Skirts | Sequinned Tops |

As I was wandering around House of Fraser this week in my personal shopping role I spotted the Coast Bliss skirt and sequinned top and although I hate to admit it I want to wear it. I never tend to go for pretty but this is beautiful and I have so many pairs of amazing shoes to wear with it.

I need an occasion!!

Net a Porter Global Finds | Where can I find unique pieces?|

When ever I travel abroad I love to check out all of the traditionally made goodies. In Quebec earlier this year I fell in love with the First Nation moccasins, especially the turquoise pair! There was definitely a air of Isabel Marant about them!!

On our annual trip to Peru the choice is vast from jewellery to alpaca which makes it very hard to decide what to buy. The colours are always so vibrant and I know I won’t be able to find them back home.

Net a Porter have a selection of pieces chosen by their buyers on their travels and these are my favourites.

Todays shopping basket|The best beachwear|Bandeau Bikinis|

After booking a few days in the sun for September I have decided to look for some new beachwear. I have a lot of bikinis and shorts but every year I take all of my new buys to Peru and leave them there! It means I can buy new every year as I obviously forget what I have left behind!!

If you are looking for designer beachwear at the moment then you need to check www.beachcafe.com I have just discovered it and I love it. They stock a great range of designers like Melissa Odabash, Juliet Dunn, Seafolly and many more. They offer next day delivery or you can pick it up from Ledbury Rd in London, this just happens to be one of my favourite streets as it always houses Matches & Austique, what more do you want.

The Charo Ruiz blue skirt that I have included below is from this site and you have to agree it is beautiful. That is definitely going to Peru it will look amazing with a tan.

If you want to treat yourself there is 10% off first orders using the code FS01.

I do have a large collection of hats in Peru, they even have their own hat stand but obviously there is always room for one more and Ido love this one from Hat Attack.

Look of the day Isabel Marant|Leather Jackets|Isabel Marant Shoes|

I have just been looking at hotels in Paris and this led me to think about what I would wear I got there. It will be July so I am hoping that it will be legs out weather!! There is nothing better to wear in Paris than Isabel Marant and I love this outfit featured brow.  I would swap the boots for sandals for walking but the ankle boots are perfect for the bar. The leather jacket hopefully wouldn’t be needed but it would be great to have it anyway. Linen tees are an essential as are her mini ruffle skirts.

Today I am loving pretty things | Statement Necklaces | Sequins |

As we all to well aware today the weather is terrible so we need pretty things to make everything better. The weather certainly wont allow us to wear most of these things but we can add some jewellery or wear a pretty knit.
