Ankles out, light jacket on my shoulders and sunnies on my nose : I guess we can definetely say that summer is coming ! And it was high freaking time ! I was really starting to miss light and cool outfits… I’m the kind of gal that gets really bored of winter jumper really fast… But let’s not jinx it though… That’s probably why I decided to start easy with an almost all black outfit, even though I really love clear or white outfits in the summer ! My Voyou (means “bandit” in French) t-shirt, always very successful and my new favorite pants with its perfect cut, my favorite Zara jacket and its gorgeous color and last but no least, my new perfect derbies from… Balsamik ! Yet again ! But if you’re looking for pretty little shoes in that style, I would defintely recommand them : they’re extra light, super comfy (even for a girl who always heart when not wearing sneakers…), and their classic style is perfectly twisted by their white sole !
Aaah, the South of France ! Its amazing weather, its crickets, its sea and its bbqs ! It’s my little summer paradise !
If you followed a bit what’s been happening on my Instagram, you know I just got there for 3 full weeks, and it’s already being a pure bliss !
For the pure Parisian I am, the South of France is like a whole other country. Even if I’ve been coming there every year since I was born, I am always so happy to be there, it’s my little corner of good times and as soon as it starts getting hot in Paris, I can’t wait to leave the city and its tourists to get back to my dear South.
And every year, I go look for small provincial villages around my place where I’m sure I’ll come across an array of grandpas chit-chatting under a plane-tree and lots of cats napping in the sun on every street corner, I go to the local marketplace fill up with regional products to treat everyone for lunch, I go stroll around the harbours of coastal towns and watch the boats coming and going while eating a crêpe or an ice-cream, I go drive at sunset on small winding roads across golden fields burnt by the sun, or I just lay by the pool under the shadow of a tree with a fresh beer and fall asleep while listening to the cicadas… These are all the things that make me love the South of France as much as I do and that make me come back every year.
Even if this year, I’m still working a bit every day, which I was not doing the last few years, I can’t compare working on my desk with the sounds of ambulances sirens in Paris and working on the garden table with the sounds of cicadas here in the South of France.
And then, the other we were talking about finding the perfect spot to shoot, and over there it’s quite the paradise ! Just like this small simple courtyard we found while not looking for it, just strolling around the desertic streets of an old village, pure happiness !
