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 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.

Outfit of the day its pleats and loafers all the way…….

This is currently my favourite piece in my wardrobe a Whistles green satin pleated skirt that just looks amazing. It goes against everything that I have always believed “I look terrible in pleated skirts” The weight and the size of the pleats make it hang straight rather than ballooning out over hips and bum!

I wore it with a Whistles navy logo tee and mustard yellow Gucci loafers .

The skirt that looks like a mermaids tail and I love it!

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.

Look of the day a Whistles dress layered over jeans….

Now that I am working for Whistles I have the perfect excuse to wear my lovely clothes and call them uniform! (what more do you need!)

However we never have the weather to make use of all of them and in particular the Juana Alisha Print dress so I have layered it over jeans and the result was pretty cool.

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.

Whistles Ellen Casual Shirt £89 here

Whistles Alisha Spilt Hem Pants £99 here

This outfit will work so well my shearling slides here and my Sophia Webster slides in Lima.

Whistles Alia Shearling Slides £139 here

Sophia Webster Lilico slides mine are last years but there are different colours available here

Whistles Juana Alisha Dress £149 here

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)

Look of the day Whistles pleated skirt & a simple tee….

I do love a pleated skirt but they don’t always love me (being quite short!) but this one by Whistles has a sheer lace bottom which will give the illusion of height. I would wear it with a simple tee which usually means a Whistle’s logo tee and my Kurt Geiger platforms.

Another great outfit for work!
