News and views from St.Tropez market

I am taking some time out and spending a week in Grimaud with two girlfriends. We have had such a great time, relaxing, gossiping, laughing and of course making a few purchases in St.Tropez market.

Inspecting the tee shirts and bretons on offer. It is still chilly here so I am wrapped up in a short puffa jacket. I find it so useful for those in-between days. Yo can find similar at Uniqlo (US link). Round my neck I am wearing a coral wool scarf. I bought it in the market a few years ago. Similar at Nordstrom and Etsy here and here.

Reds, greens and blues were very much in evidence. I loved the two ethnic print dresses.

Can’t believe these shoes above were on sale for only 10 euros. One of my friends bought a silver version.

Lovely print dress. Luckily the shop was not open when I took this photo early in the morning or a purchase might have been made!

I love the navy spot trousers with the white top. If you are a fan of orange you might like the second version. I find that french women are so chic in the way they accessorise their outfits with scarves and jewellery.

Easter in the South of France

Love is in the air. It is Easter next week-end. Sadly this chicken was not made of chocolate!

I did say we three amigos had fun this week. You might enjoy seeing us check out the market last Spring

    Love those tasseled suede sneakers! Maybe I can find a pair in the Aix market when we return at the end of the week…

    Love the new colors for spring. Really love the metallic sneakers with tassels! Never been to France, but would love to go. I’m over here in the US.

    I want to buy a Uniglo puffer jacket but cannot decide whether to order a Small or a Medium. I am 5 foot in height and slimmish build but bust is 36D!
    Are Uniglo jackets on the tight or the lose side. please?

      Hi Mary
      I would probably go for a medim they are bit very long. The small might be a bit tight across the bust. You could always do what I do and order both. Unfortunately Uniqlo do not do free returns. However it is probably cheaper that sending one back and re-ordering.

      I have a Uniqlo puffer, bought in November. I am small and usually wear a size 6 or 8, 5’4″ at 115 lb. I have a Large (!!) and it is perfect. So yes, they are cut very small.

    I love the tassle shoes as well! I think there must be a lot more spring things on the stalls than when I was there at the beginning of this month. To be honest, I think you have special antennae to find nice things! P.S. The little house we rented was in the road beside La Tarte Tropezienne, Place des Lices. I hope the roadworks are finished!

      Hi Jane
      It is a very pretty little street. No the roadworks are still there which makes the place look a bit ugly.

    Of course, I love that orange outfit. Oh how I miss the vendors in France…so many wonderful colors and styles to choose from, and such fun shopping. Enjoy!

    Wow lots of fabulous things there, just my cup of tea, would love a wander round.

    Okay… you’ve inspired me… I’m off to buy a bright spring scarf. So even though it still feels like winter, it will cheer me up. By the way… love that scarf with your puffa jacket.

    Lovely colours for spring , if only the weather would improve! Still we did have a beautiful sunny spring day here on Monday. I’ve just got a bright blue sequined beret – caused some mirth in the family!-to wear with a cobalt blue bemboo scarf I also bought quite recently. The feel is lovely but it creases and is not as warm as wool, of course.

    What lovely options you have to choose from among! Those orange pants and small black/white checked blouse for some reason ring my bell! And the shoes! And the purses!

    I’m more than a little jealous of your shopping opportunities there. Good eye, girl.
