My top 10 belt bags they are my new obsession…..

Belt bags or bum bags whatever you want to call them are having a new lease of life. I for one am totally obsessed although I will admit I am not sure how many times I would use one so I would be cautious with price point!!

I have searched the net this morning for my favourites and I have included all price points. You will have to admit that they are all very cute and would work over most outfits.

They may only be big enough for your phone, keys, cards and lip stick but what else do you need. I think for me it would be the hands free shopping (well until you have shopping bags) I really don’t enjoy taking a tote to town!

I will start with the one I am going to try myself!

A gorgeous yellow from Zara but it is also  available in black.

Even at the beach I have fallen in love with many things…..

Tomorrow is a return to reality after three weeks on the beach in Peru, but even in paradise I find things that I love and I never stop concocting outfits.

My main love has been these Valentino khaki slides, whilst wearing my pink pair I thought if only they were available in khaki. The very next day there they were on Selfridges website. (must be magic and a sign)

I have been thinking of small ways to give my work wardrobe a boost when I return to the UK and these Topshop tee shirts will work so well with pants. I particularly fancy a pink tee for spring and this by KOCHE at net a porter is very cute.

My main love is always shoes and I cant help but love these espadrilles by Chloe, they are very pretty.

Following on from my new obsession with sweatshirts this one from Zara is pretty cool, I love the colour! I also love this simple white tee from our favourite high street store (well it’s mine anyway)

Valentino Khaki slides £220 here

Topshop Oui Non 1993 tee £16 here

Topshop Embroidered Amour Tee £16 here

KOCHE cotton pique tee £140 here

Chloe lace up espadrilles £425 here

Zara contrast ribbed sweatshirt £29.99 here

Oh dear this is a major obsession alert Valentino boots…..

There I was innocently checking Mytheresa.com when suddenly there they were in front of me.

These boots are simply perfect for spring/summer with tanned legs, I am already concocting outfits. I know it is freezing outside and they are hardly snow boots but their time will come. I do realise that someone will point out that bear more then a passing resemblance to my pink Acne star boots but really they are very different VERY!

 

Valentino Soul Rockstud Ankle Boots £895 here

 

Only 5 more days to go to Lima Dreaming I am so excited …….

Recent events have meant that this year I haven’t done my usual Lima Dreaming countdown, an unexpected trip to Canada to see a very poorly little boy followed by an unexpected stay in Schipol airport certainly dampened my enthusiasm a little.

Tonight however I am sat here thinking only 5 more days and I will be on that plane Lima Dreaming all of the way.

I have so many little treats to take with me to add to my already beautiful wardrobe.

Every year I take a few additions to freshen up my wardrobe some of my pieces have been there for ten years and I still enjoy them.

This year I am taking:

Valentino slides

Zara off the shoulder dress

Zara printed denim shorts £25.99 here

My gorgeous Valentino sandals (these are Lima veterans) with The King of Peru in Guidi)

Beach toes in Valentino Rockstuds and Guidi Flipflops

Berenice Rose emerald green pretty dress

Pampelone 55 blouse

Zara embroidered denim shorts £25.99 here

I am sure there a few other things tucked away waiting to go in my suitcase, we shall see…………….

 

 

 

 

It has been a week of discovering so many pretty things…..

I have to say that this week has been a week of potential major obsessions and I mean MAJOR I even found the prettiest dress ever for my Lima Dreaming wardrobe. (really)

Poupette St Barths Sasha printed dress £218 here

It is that time of the year when the christmas party becomes the topic of conversation and “what to wear”. I am not one for glitter and sequins so when I spotted this Whistles navy skirt I knew I had found  my outfit and I can wear it afterwards (many times). I will team it with a Whistles tee and some old but beautiful Prada silver wedges.

Whistles Au Revoir logo tee £49 here

Whistles Satin Pleated Skirt £139 here

and to finish it off my Prada wedges, I am not sure how long I can dance in them but they are so pretty.

I can’t resist a good hoodie at the moment they are my new found friends

Zara sweatshirt with textured hood £29.99 here

These slides are the things dreams are made of (mine anyway) and are perfect for Lima Dreaming, it is a shame I already have so many pretty sandals (apparently it’s written in stone)

Valentino Free Rockstud Slide Sandals in azure £535 here

This bag will complete my party outfit

Kurt Geiger London Tweed Kensington Bag £95.20 here

I think that may be all this week but I am sure there are so many pretty things out there.

Foot candy Valentino Rockstud slides in four colours

I cannot believe that I actually said I did not need anymore sandals for my “Lima Dreaming” holiday this year, clearly I wasn’t thinking straight! (I probably had a fever at the time)

These Rockstud slides are just gorgeous and very comfortable (I know this as I have them in pale pink already) They will all work so well if only……………
