Few snaps from my recent trip to the south of France, where I stayed in the picturesque village of Montauroux. Christian Dior had strong links to the area, giving his name to a small chapel in the village and being buried in the nearby village of Callian. A little further afield, the town of Grasse is worth a visit; for its tiny winding ancient streets, trio of Rubens within the cathedral, and a lovely costume and jewellery museum (which unfortunately bans photography).
^ Topshop tunic, New Look shoes (I wore them all summer; perfect heel height and comfy) and vintage tapestry bag
^ ASOS skirt with Topshop top and antique celluloid cameo necklace
^ Vintage sheer skirt over Topshop skirt and top, copper Ted Baker tote, all antique jewellery
^ Zara dress with 1920's celluloid necklace

Trying to sort through my backlog of photos I never got round to posting... Hence the boots and coat in August (although, that isn't so strange in England). I bought the trench a couple of years ago and it's been my go to coat for the transitional months of spring and autumn ever since. The top I wasn't so sure about, the cut and layered nature isn't something I'd usually go for but I loved the print and colours. The bottom vest is longer at the back, perfect for covering the bum when wearing with leggings/treggings/jeggings (essential when your bum is as generous as mine)... so it all adds up to pretty comfy, casual look for me.
