Summer

Summer's been unfolding in beautiful colors, ripening fruit and very warm temperatures. Instead of taking the dogs for a walk in the afternoon I get up early in morning, when it is still relatively cool from the night. Everything looks beautiful and fresh then, and it is when I take most of my pictures. I hope you also enjoy the photos I took during a very enjoyable lunch at the Villa Gallici in Aix-en-Provence.. the romantic setting and plush decorations make it a haven of comfort, and the food is wonderful and delicious too. Thankfully a thunderstorm last week caused the temperatures to drop from the heatwave that lingered for far too long over most of Europe, and one can almost feel that autumn will be around the corner soon.  My scarves are making a re-appearance in the form of belts and sashes, or tied in cool and breezy knots which don't come into much contact with the skin, and featherlight mousseline scarves are of course perfect for the summer!



Hermes De Madras à Zakynthos 90 carré worn as a sash with a clic H bracelet in marron glacé and a Kelly 32 in ebene. New MaiTai Collection long gemstone necklace in chestnut/jade/tiger eye (available here)






Hermes Fantaisies Indiennes mousseline GM in a basic bias fold and a Picotin 22 in sanguine.
MaiTai Collection necklace as above and multi-strand bracelet in gold (available here)



Well hello!


Variation - scarf as above, but teamed with white and gold. Tassel necklace in Mocca/Or (available here) and multi-strand bracelet as before (here)





All black with a Hermes Brazil Maxi Twilly and an MTC long gemstone necklace in Caramel/Jade/Tiger Eye (available here)





Queen Anne's lace - withering gracefully



Hermes Parures de Samourais 90 carré in a cowboy knot (ends tied behind the neck with a Petite Classique scarf ring in the basic slide) and Grand Apparat extra-large printed enamel bracelet. MaiTai Collection long gemstone necklace Chestnut/Jade/Tiger Eye (available here) and multi-strand bracelet in gold (here)





Variation - top as above, but with white jeans and a Au Coeur de la Vie PM mousseline tied with a Petite Classique scarf ring in silver into a criss-cross-bow knot. Hermes Picotin 22 in rubis and Clic Clac H bracelet in Bleu Indiens. MaiTai Collection multi-strand bracelet in silver (available here)





Variation of the knot (half bow knot) with an Anneau Infinity and the De Madras à Zakynthos scarf from the first picture



Serene and beautiful the La Villa Gallici lunch terrace





If I'd known about the roses in the fountain at the Villa Gallici, I would have worn my gemstone petal necklace (available here) and Theory flower dress. Next time for sure, so today just an archive picture instead.







Wearing one of my most treasured scarves in one of my favorite knots with scarves and knots - La Presentation de Cheveaux in an asymmetrical wrap. Accessorizing with a Hermes Picotin 18 in Bleu Sapphir and Charniere bracelet in black lizard. MaiTai Collection long gemstone necklace in Caramel/Jade/Tiger Eye and multi-strand bracelet in gold (here)



scarf detail with a chestnut tassel, working equally well



Variation: as before, but with black trousers instead of the jeans. It always amazes how different a look can be with just one item changing





Same knot as above, but with last year's Parures des Samourais. With a relatively new scarf the knot appears more sculpted and three dimensional, it  hasn't developed a vintage silk's soft hand yet.





Have a wonderful remaining August everyone
