Must Have Item Of The Day|Coloured Shift Dresses & Ankle Boots|

Whilst enjoying a cup of tea and a scone I decided to share my obsessions and finds with everyone on a daily basis. It will be the item that I that I love most and for a while could never live without!!

I will start with this cocoon dress from & Other Stories (my new love now that it has opened in Manchester)

I wore it yesterday with a necklace from COS and my Isabel Marant boots, such a simple outfit with a lot of impact.

Isabel Marant Etoile Drew Metallic Drew Boots|Leather Ankle Boots|

After much deliberation and searching I have decided that these are the boots for spring summer. I did like the cream pair but they will always ask for tanned legs and will be unforgiving on pale skin. This metallic pair will look amazing with a tan but will also look good without.

My obsession began with the green metallic pair in the campaign photos but after much searching I cannot find a pair anywhere so the gold metallic wins.

I have been picturing them with my Zara cropped and frayed jeans and I am loving the idea!!

Styled Zara Yellow A Line Skirt |Faux Leather Skirts|

I love the colour of this skirt it will make me think of spring everytime I wear it. I will wear it with my Isabel Marant  Danae ankle boots (the most comfortable boots ever) and a fine knit until the weather warms up. My legs will bare as always so I will be relying on Whistles Tyler Parka for warmth!

It is perfect outfit to wear whilst I style my customers everyday, very simple but very cool, I need to be able to pick out clothes quickly and run around a lot!!

Lima Dreaming an Update|South American Adventures|

Another week has passed in a haze of sunshine and sea at the beach. I can report that tan is building nicely although it is very hot and the sun protection is high.

We start our days with fried eggs and a delicious juice in the local market, for me it is always melon, they taste like nectar.

After that is usually a few hours on the beach and later maybe sometime in the pool. I haven’t ventured into the surf yet but I will this week unlike the King of Peru who surfs everyday.

The days are very lazy at the beach but on Friday we always head back into Lima for the weekend to escape the crazy crowds that head to the beaches.

Life in Lima is more hectic with lots of walks and cocktails to help with the heat!!

Isabel Marant Drew Boots Are Just Perfect In Any Colour

I do love the Drew boots, first of all it was the off white pair then today I spotted a metallic pair on Mytheresa website. The ultimate pair has to be the  metallic green from the campaign photos, they are just gorgeous and everyday day I search all of the websites just incase they appear, fingers crossed!!

New Season New Jackets|10 New Season Jackets You Need Now|

Its that time of year when all our thoughts turn to the new season clothes that are appearing everywhere. We know we cant wear a lot of them for a few months yet but we can wear a new jacket, over jeans and ankle boots or over a warm jumper, there are always ways to wear things NOW!!

I spotted this Isabel Marant military inspired jacket and that sent me into “must find new jacket” mode immediately, this jacket is very “visible” but would work with simple outfits for maximum impact.

Another high profile jacket this season has to be the Gucci bomber whether it be the metallic or the tan version, both are gorgeous but there are great alternatives out there.
