An overnight stay in Chablis

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


Avedon exhibition Paris

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.

Pop of colour on the beach

I love colour in the winter months. The addition of the bright red sweater lifts the otherwise dark outfit. It adds a pop of colour. I am wearing black trousers with a sleeveless navy coat. Yes I do combine black and navy and often wear this combination. Both navy and black, usually in the form of trousers, are staples in my wardrobe.

The significant aspect of this outfit is in the details. Details in my opinion make all the difference. With the careful use of accessories an ordinary “look” becomes something personal and special.

Here I have added a fake fur collar and some burgundy coloured drop earrings.
