Well, in this case, “view from the front door,” as we were staying in Sharon Santoni’s lovely guest cottage. I’ll be writing more about the cottage and sharing more photos of this gorgeous garden soon.
There’s a kind of hazy quality to the light here that makes everything look a little blurry and magical. The view above is from our second Normandy location, which I’ll also write about upon our return home. This was taken Saturday when we arrived, but today we have more clouds and a few sprinkles.
We’re been on the go since we landed in France a few days ago, but also trying to enjoy a little down time. I’ve taken SO many photos and will need to do several posts to recap some of what we’ve seen and done here, but it’s been fabulous so far!
In the meantime, I’ll share a couple of outfits I’ve worn using my travel wardrobe pieces:
I decided to wear some color for our visit to Giverny and Monet’s house and gardens. The afternoon was warm, especially in the sun, so this linen top was a perfect choice. Pants are from J.Crew from last year, here’s the same style (different colors now available, many on sale). More about the shoes here.
It was a warm evening when we went to dinner in Honfleur. I wore a linen shirt as a “third piece” over black separates, and added layered necklaces to finish the look.
What a thrill it was to visit Le-Mont-Saint-Michel! Our weather turned from warm and sunny to cooler and breezy. I’d packed this lightweight rain jacket (sold out now, here’s a similar one) on impulse at the last minute, and it was perfect for casual sightseeing…windproof but not too warm or heavy. (I’ll probably wear it again today, as there’s some rain in the forecast.)
We have another day of sightseeing here in Normandy, and then it’s off to PARIS!!
