A taste of summer and holidays to come. Last week while in the South of France we spent a wonderful day on the beach. The sun was shining and all was well with the world. We shared a delicious picnic with friends sitting on the sand at L’Escalet. I am wearing my new East top (shown in my capsule holiday wardrobe). I have teamed it with a pair of wide leg linen trouser (a few years old similar) and some slip on mules. The hat I bought in St.Tropez market. It is a lovely blush colour. I just can’t resist a hat!!
Following all your lovely comments regarding my relatively new St.Tropez haircut I thought I would give you an update on my latest “hair look”. Whilst on one of my visits to the market last week I popped in to the JeanLouisDavid salon and Sandra gave my hair a quick trim. She left it roughly the same length just tidying up the back and fringe plus taking some weight from the top.
Pink scarf from market similar US and UK. Earrings some years old similar.
Whenever I come down to Grimaud I can’t wait to visit St.Tropez market. Last Saturday I went with two friends and we had a wonderful morning exploring the different and very eclectic stalls. Everything from local vegetables, artisan breads, exotic spices and antiques are on show. The market is my favourite haunt for hats, scarves and jewellery. This visit I came away with a new straw fedora hat in blush pink. As if I need another hat! I also fell for a bright pink cotton scarf. Both shortly to be featured on the blog.
An overnight stay in Chablis. It is over 800 miles from our apartment in the South of France to our home in London. We usually break our journey at approximately the half way stage. This means around Beaune in Burgundy on the way down and Chablis on the way back. Both excellent wine growing areas so we make sure that we enjoy the regional cooking and a glass or two of the local wine.
On this occasion we chose to stay at L’Hotel du vieux moulin in the heart of Chablis. It is a charming boutique hotel with only seven rooms. The decor is modern with a minimalist Japanese feel. The beds are nice and wide and are soft and luxurious. View Post
We are currently travelling back to London and will be stopping for an overnight stay in Chablis.
In the meantime details for a stunning exhibition I visited during my trip to Paris last December.
Susan of Unefemme and I took the RER to La biblioteque Nationale to see the Avedon Vieux Monde, New Look exhibition. It was absolutely stunning. I would highly recommend it if you are visiting Paris before 26th February 2017.
