Must have item of the day simplicity in a crisp white linen tunic

There are so many ways that I could wear this Zara linen tunic, I am thinking it would work so well over my MO&CO side striped pants and a pair of Rockstuds then with my cropped frayed jeans and Isabel Marant yellow moccasins for a laid back look.

I am also quite sure it has all of the elements for Lima Dreaming Style!

A very major obsession alert!! Miu Miu patent ballet pumps………

Oh dear I do love these shoes, I have seen them many times in different colours but the white is just so cool…………… It isn’t a colour I would normally choose to wear but exceptions have to be made sometimes.

Must have item of the day|Isabel Marant Cotton Tops|

If you combine my love of Isabel Marant with a pretty white top then you have a heart stopping moment!! I guess I am trying to say I love this and it has Lima Dreaming written all over it.

Tales from a personal shopping life 13/4…………..the reluctant shopper

Good morning and I hope it is as sunny where you are, it is beautiful here.

My plan for the day is to post a few articles and then take a trip out to enjoy the sunshine.

It has been another great start to the week in the shopping suite as always. I do consider myself very lucky to enjoy my job so much, it makes me smile every day.

Monday started with a GP who just wanted to dress smartly but stylishly as well. She was such fun and had such a positive outlook on life even though she has to deal with some abusive patients everyday.

I hit the spot totally with exactly the same cropped flared trousers from French Connection that my young mum bought on Saturday. I tried them yesterday just to see if they looked as good on me and the answer is no! Bilbo Baggins springs to mind.

Next up was a young man who had been given a voucher to spend and as he had two very young children he hadn’t been shopping in quite awhile. His favourite piece was this jumper.

The afternoon ended with a lady who was off to Spain and wanted an evening outfit. She was very petite and didn’t want to show her arms so this outfit was perfect.

Yesterday brought me the “Reluctant Shopper”, a gentleman who hates shopping and hasn’t been for many years. His wife booked the appointment awhile ago and they turned it into a city break, staying for a few days in Manchester. Both him and his wife warned me that it could be a difficult appointment and he may give up very quickly!! Two hours later he had a pile of clothes and we had had  a lot of laughs and he even said he would come back. Next time the treat will be for his wife but I did organise a mini makeover for her yesterday as she definitely deserved it. Thank you Emma on Guerlain!

The Perfect White Sneakers|Carvela White Lace Up Sneakers|

I am always on the look out for a great pair of sneakers to wear at work instead of my beautiful shoes! They need to look great with jeans (especially my new crop flares) and dresses alike and I think these are the PERFECT pair!!

They are also leather which is essential as I am running around the store all day (House Of Fraser) and as much as I hate to admit it comfort is important!! (but the look is essential).
