While I've been gone, summer has ended. I took a last minute holiday and finished the summer by enjoying the crazy hot temperatures in the South of France. It was quite a shock going from cotton sundresses to the jumper I am currently wearing. I had a wonderful time, I've never been to that part of France before and is very beautiful. We stayed in a small town that had plenty of French charm and two very good bakeries. I do love the whole cafe culture, it's so good to just sit on the street with a cool drink watching the world go by. In between doing a lot of relaxing we did visit some places. These photos are from Le Thoronet Abbey about 30 minute drive from where we were staying. It was sparse but beautiful and the clean lines and beautiful light really appealed to me. When I go on holiday I  like to take clothes that mean something to me. I liked the idea of wearing this skirt, that once saw 1970s summers with my grandmother, now seeing some 40 years later with me. I think I now have post holiday blues, although looking at all the great autumn outfits you've all been posting on your blogs has definitely cheered me up.
