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!

Valentino Rockstud Slides £190 here

This next dress will look amazing with these slides both home and away.

Whistles Lila Bardot Dress £129 here

 

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.

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)

Looking for summer sandals then look no further………………..

Sophia Webster never disappoints me, I have managed to make a tradition of taking a new pair of sandals to Lima with me every year. They are always work so well with shorts, dresses, pants and a great tan.  I will probably wear them  all for years as they never date but it is lovely to have a new addition in my suitcase for each trip.

These are all new and I love them all!! Decisions decisions …..

Zara V Cut leather slides in orange, the most comfortable shoes……

I tried these slides in Zara yesterday and was amazed by the softness of the leather! They are probably one of the most comfortable shoes I have ever tried EVER. (check the price)

I do love the orange but they also available in black if you want to keep it safe.

Furry slides do I love them or hate them I can’t decide……

I have an on/off love affair with furry slides some of them are so pretty (I am thinking Miu Miu here ) and others just look very messy.

When I spotted this wonderful pair from Zara  the love pangs came flooding back and I am thinking this is something I need to get out of my system as cheaply (but prettily) as possible.
