10 denim pieces you need for summer days………..

I always love pretty denim pieces when summer arrives and a denim jumpsuit is just wonderful. (I do love a jumpsuit)

I know autumn is only a moment away but some of these pieces will see you through to cooler days. I will be lucky enough to have my summer again in January (Lima Dreaming)

This jumpsuit at Anthropologie is probably the perfect place to start and the Whistles pink denim jacket a perfect finish.

Beautiful beachwear with Poupette St Barth stylish and pretty

It is a very grey and wet Sunday so what better way to enjoy it than to choose yourself a new beach wardrobe!  There are bikinis everywhere at the moment but I do love great beach cover ups.

You need things that are super stylish, very pretty and maybe a little practical (not really important). Just add gorgeous sandals and you are ready for cocktail hour.  Everything that Poupette St Barth have is beautiful I would love to wear all of it.

I would wear my Sophia Webster Lilico sandals or my Valentino rock studs in orange  (lucky girl)

All of these pieces are perfect for my Lima Dreaming (its never to early to start dreaming) it will here before I know it.

All of the Poupette St Barth items are available www.mytheresa.com

Lima Dreaming beach style| Winter sun beachwear|

It is definitely that time of year again, all my thoughts have turned towards Lima. It may seem strange when most people are focusing on christmas but for me its sunshine all the way which is why I find myself searching for beachwear.

Lima is always split in to two categories, week days in the south on the beach and weekends in Lima for family time, cocktails, food and long walks. This means I get to have different wardrobes as the city and the beach require different pieces.

I spotted this dress by Denim & Supply awhile ago in store and this will definitely be in my suit case

Tales from a personal shopping life 8/5………….Prosecco and friends

What a truly wonderful sunny day, I hope you have all enjoyed it.

It has been a very short week in the shopping suite (House of Fraser Manchester) as I had a few days away from it but I still have tales to tell.

My first customer actually lives within half a mile of me, it is a small world. She was off to a wedding in southern Italy but wanted something she could wear again. I don’t think she thought she would find anything for her petite frame, but  she went away very happy.

Next up was a lady who was attending a birthday party with a black tie theme. She had already tried an endless number of dresses so was feeling a little weary. This jumpsuit was an instant success!!

Saturday was a wonderful day even though my first appointment was a no show (so rude!!) I had four friends who always come together and they are lovely. They alway share a bottle or two of prosecco and generally have fun. This time the excuse was one of them needed a dress for wedding but she needed WOW. She fell in love with an outfit almost instantly so spent the rest of the time hugging me. ( I love my job)

These lovely ladies have already booked to come back in October for their winter clothes!! Fun and giggles all round.

Yesterday ended with a young lady who works as Speech Therapist with cancer patients and wanted to look more professional but still young. The pleasure was all mine.

She bought these trousers in black and navy

All of the sunshine has had me obsessing about clothes suitable to wear in the heat, clothes that will go to Lima. I need denim shorts and tops, just simple things to wear with pretty sandals!! I having little success!! Most of the tops are cold shoulder and make me look like a milk maid or a serving wench (not attractive at all)

My current wish list is something like this!!
