A recent trip to St.Tropez market

White jeans and brown leather jacket

A recent trip to St.Tropez market. It was a sunny but windy day when two friends and I took the bus from Grimaud Village to St.Tropez market. You can see from my hair how windy it was. I am wearing a pair of white jeans that are so old that I can’t remember where I got them from. I have teamed it with my 1995 brown leather jacket from Emporio Armani. Plus simple white sneakers and a scarf from the market.

I was asked recently to describe my style and whether it has changed as I got older. After some reflection, I decided that it hadn’t. I still choose classic investment pieces for my basic garments such as jackets, coats, trousers dresses etc. Then I add accessories especially jewellery scarves and hats to personalise my outfits. That is probably why I love going to the local markets and brocantes as they are a treasure trove for exciting and quirky accessories.

Purple popular in St.Tropez market

The colour purple seemed to be very popular this season in the market.

Colourful acrylic necklaces
Large silk scarf

I really fell in love with this scarf. I was very tempted however I do have a large collection of scarves already. Similar large silk scarves below:

Maxi dress teamed with a denim jacket

I observed quite a few women wearing the maxi dress and denim jacket combination. You can see how my friend and I styled our denim jackets with our maxi skirts here.

A recent trip to St.Tropez market:

Leopard print blouse and black skirt

Leopard print is always well-represented in the market.

If have seen quite a few thick fluffy sweaters in the shops. Not being worn as it is still very hot here. I will investigate when I get back to the UK.

Pearl and crystal mini handbags

I just fell in love with all these bags. So cute and very “Barbie!”

Dog print mini bag

I bought one of these bags for my 3-year-old granddaughter.

Outside Sephora in St.Tropez

Me outside Sephora. I love this store and stock up on essentials while I am in France. They have just opened a shop in Westfields and also offer mail order. If you live in the US it is well worth checking out Sephora there.

    Love these photos! I recently bought a similar bag and I love it! So comfortable as a crossbody with the wide strap.
    Great jewellery too.
