We will be arriving into a Heathrow quarantine hotel in under two weeks time. I appreciate no one will see me and I certainly will not be going anywhere for ten days but I think the urge to feel nice will be strong. (Any excuse for new outfits) My wardrobe probably won’t change that muchContinue reading “A quarantine hotel wardrobe…is there such a thing?”

Winter proofing a summer wardrobe…..,
On December the 18th as we boarded our flight to Lima Peru I did not expect to be still here in April. I packed only summer clothes and now we are going into Autumn. I wouldn’t say it’s cold by UK standards but the mornings and evenings have a chill in the air. If theContinue reading “Winter proofing a summer wardrobe…..,”
Newness! How to minimise your buying and maximise your outfits
It is so easy to get carried away by all of the “newness” at the beginning of the season. I for one love so many things but experience tells me to be brutal. I will find a few pieces I love that I can wear many times. My current favourites are these jeans and clogsContinue reading “Newness! How to minimise your buying and maximise your outfits”
Take Two…. outfit inspiration
I do it when I find something I instantly love and then as if by magic it is available in more than one colour. This Rick Owens play suit is a dream in black and pink. I would wear it with heels, sandals, boots or trainers. It really is a spring/summer dream as it’s soContinue reading “Take Two…. outfit inspiration”
New outfit alert Ganni leather dress……

I could also add the leather frilled collar that isn’t available yet. I have included these Sandro cream boots (I needContinue reading “New outfit alert Ganni leather dress……”
Why is one never enough!
I ask myself this question all of the time. For instance this morning I spotted the JW Anderson chain embellished loafers on Selfridges.com in cream. I have a black pair which I love but I bought them last summer and now I am think the new pair would be good. To add further weight toContinue reading “Why is one never enough!”
A visit to Zara in Lima it’s like visiting an old friend!
When I first came to Lima about 17 years ago I had to bring everything with me. There was no where to pick up a new top or bikini. If my favourite shampoo ran out then I just bought what was available locally. The clothes were limited to surf shops or boutiques where all ofContinue reading “A visit to Zara in Lima it’s like visiting an old friend!”
Lockdown and shopping go hand in hand…..
There are way more serious things going on the world than what is included in this post but I do believe that a little light relief is needed. During lockdown number one I was at home like most of the world at that time. How did I keep myself occupied? Well we are extremely fortunateContinue reading “Lockdown and shopping go hand in hand…..”
Peruvian Pima Cotton……the cream of the crop
Here at the beach in Punta Hermosa, Lima Peru things have changed. Gone are the days when the small boutiques stocked very bad clothes in flammable fabrics. Now instead of exporting all of the Pima cotton they are keeping some for themselves. To my delight this trip I have acquired a few very pretty tieContinue reading “Peruvian Pima Cotton……the cream of the crop”
