Outfit of the day yesterday I was loving my Zara trilogy

Yesterday I wore not one but three items from Zara and it looked and  felt pretty good.  It was a  busy Saturday in the personal shopping suite so there was a lot of walking involved but I felt great all day.

A winter coat must have a pink reversible shearling delight

One of the perks of being a personal shopper is I get to see everything that comes into store on a daily basis (it’s a hard life) .

Imagine my delight when I spotted this little beauty the other day, a reversible pink shearling/faux suede coat by Maison De Nimes (exclusive to House of Fraser) at a price point to keep everyone happy.

I particularly love the shearling side but I will be wearing mine both ways over everything. I do mean EVERYTHING as I love this coat.

Reasons for and against Biker jacket v Aviator jacket

All of my thoughts have turned either my trip to Canada in October or Lima Dreaming at the end of December, two very different trips with very different weather.

I spotted this burgundy biker jacket by Zara the other day and I fell completely in love with colour. I am already planning outfits and deciding what bags would work with it.

My reasoning for my desperate need to buy this jacket is my trip to Canada. I an going to Vancouver Island so the weather shouldn’t be freezing at the end of October but it will be wet some days. I would team it with my new corduroy cap, also from Zara for a perfect combination for walks, play parks as I will be with my little munchkins.

The only downside to this jacket is the zip, I don’t know how i feel about the diagonal zip! I know this may seem trivial but I would rarely fasten it and this is why I like symmetry.

So, the question is should I opt for the Aviator jacket instead? It is only available in black but it gives perfect symmetry when open and the new cap would still work perfectly.   it would go over anything and everything ) It would also mean I could stick with my beautiful colourful bags (very important)

I do think I need to go to Zara and try them both on immediately.

I could add to the drama by including other jackets in the dilemma but at this price point it keeps it fun.

Major obsession alert Sophia Webster shearling slides…..

I have made a tradition of taking a new pair of Sophia Webster sandals to Lima every year, they are now an integral part of Lima Dreaming.

Imagine my delight today when I spotted these on Harvey Nichols website I think my words (to myself) were I need these they are amazing.

Must have item of the day a very cute dress from Whistles…

I think I love everything about this dress it is summer perfect. The colour, the print and the tassels all combine to create a boho vibe.

I would wear it for work (with slides) in the summer and I will definitely be taking it to Peru (Lima Dreaming) where it will look amazing with a tan and gorgeous sandals (I am thinking Valentino’s)
