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)

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.

I am a little obsessed with faux fur and sparkles…..

I think you would have to be alit hard hearted not to love these sandals just a little bit! I love faux fur on shoes (however impractical they are) and add a little sparkle and I am in heaven (always been a Miu Miu girl)

These sandals may not be practical but how much fun would they be teamed with jeans and tee running around store (personal shopping(

Outfit of the day yesterday I was loving my Zara trilogy

Yesterday I wore not one but three items from Zara and it looked and  felt pretty good.  It was a  busy Saturday in the personal shopping suite so there was a lot of walking involved but I felt great all day.

Reasons for and against Biker jacket v Aviator jacket

All of my thoughts have turned either my trip to Canada in October or Lima Dreaming at the end of December, two very different trips with very different weather.

I spotted this burgundy biker jacket by Zara the other day and I fell completely in love with colour. I am already planning outfits and deciding what bags would work with it.

My reasoning for my desperate need to buy this jacket is my trip to Canada. I an going to Vancouver Island so the weather shouldn’t be freezing at the end of October but it will be wet some days. I would team it with my new corduroy cap, also from Zara for a perfect combination for walks, play parks as I will be with my little munchkins.

Zara Biker Jacket £89.99 here

The only downside to this jacket is the zip, I don’t know how i feel about the diagonal zip! I know this may seem trivial but I would rarely fasten it and this is why I like symmetry.

So, the question is should I opt for the Aviator jacket instead? It is only available in black but it gives perfect symmetry when open and the new cap would still work perfectly.   it would go over anything and everything ) It would also mean I could stick with my beautiful colourful bags (very important)

I do think I need to go to Zara and try them both on immediately.

I could add to the drama by including other jackets in the dilemma but at this price point it keeps it fun.

 

So many more additions to my winter wish list…..

There are so many pieces landing at the moment I barely know which way to turn! I love to wear new clothes instantly I am not very good at keeping them until the weather changes. The things I love today can all be worn now which makes it so much more fun.

This faux suede trench from Zara is very useful with the wonderful weather we are having.  It would go over everything and keep away the morning chill in a very pretty way.

I also love the coat below, it has a hood which I love and it definitley has a Isabel Marant feel about it. I am thinking this would be perfect for my Canadian adventure in October.

Zara Coat with Hood £59.99 here

The perfect pair of jeans is always a challenge and I think I have found my next pair.

Zara Jeans with Side Frill £29.99 here

The colour of this Isabel Marant top is just gorgeous and I do like to add a piece to two every season.

Isabel Marant Louna top £220 here

I cant have a wish list without a Isabel Marant dress it just wouldn’t be right.

Isabel Marant tiered dress £330 here

There are not so many shoes around at the moment that I love , or do I just have too many pairs already!

I tried these KG velvet pumps on in store (House of Fraser) and I love them. They feel very comfortable and look gorgeous, just perfect for personal shopping.  Unfortunatley they don’t appear to be on any websites yet.

KG Kurt Geiger velvet pumps £119

No matter what anyone says  I really want a pair of furry slides and I have found the perfect pair. They are super comfortable and will take me well into autumn (perfect for flying) I have already tried them and the size 3 was so big the 2 fit me (help)

My new obsession for the week Biker style ankle boots

After falling for Zara’s  ankle boots earlier in the week I am now on the search for more pairs to compare. (difficult as they are gorgeous)

Today I have spotted pairs by Isabel Marant, Valentino,and Kurt Geiger, obviously a mix of price points but all gorgeous.

Outfit of the day a pretty dress and biker boots…..

This a perfect outfit for work (personal shopping) it is super cute with the advantage of very comfortable feet!! Bonus!. Just add tanned bare legs.

I do believe that I could add a midi dress as well, that would work well when the days are colder (I don’t like tights) .

A bit of an obsession faux fur embellished slides…..

It all started with the Miu Miu faux fur slides they are just so pretty, never to wear in real life just at home. (especially the rain) I know that isn’t very practical when you pay so much for them so I have found two great high street alternatives and I think you will agree they are just a s pretty.

Now I can’t decide whether or not I like the green faux fur better than the neat black jewelled flats by Other Stories (I need help or both!)
