Provencal life in the summer. From time to time I like to bring you my news/views from St.Tropez and our beautiful village Grimaud. Two of my favourite pastimes while I am here are to go for long walks in the nearby countryside and to spend time wandering round the local markets. I love to search for hidden treasures among the many jewellery stalls in the market. This visit my attention has been drawn to the many stall holders selling ethnic style bracelets. They seem to be very much “a la mode” this season.
I bought one of the pink wrap ones similar to the two in the top left hand corner. It is great fun and lifts some of my simple linen shifts and separates that I wear most days when it is very hot. I am still wearing these linen trousers and top first seen in 2015. I love linen and don’t mind the creases. On that note I just discovered an interesting brand that offers a simple pure linen collection. They sell through Etsy. You might like to take a look.
I saw a lot of these bags on Pampalone beach. All things ethnic with a hippie vibe were very much in evidence in St. Tropez this season. I found some pretty ones at Etsy.
I definitely think that I have a bracelet obsession this year.
Hats, hats and more hats. I just love Fedoras.
This is an outfit in the window of my favourite boutique in St. Tropez. It is hidden down one of the side streets and never fails to have an interesting “ensemble” in the window. Here I love the pairing of the charcoal grey with the bright coral.
Subtle neutrals. Taupe and cream. Very refreshing. I particularly like the juxtaposition of the squares, lines and circles. What do you think?
View across the vineyards. Taken on one of our many walks.
We seem to have adopted these feral cats and take them a few treats every time we walk past.
Au revoir till our next visit.
