One of my favorite fabric companies,Les Toiles du Soleil
Beautiful stripes everywhere at the Salon.
If you didn't bring your Panama go home. I left mine in my hotel room. Why?
More Hippie patterns that look so chic and easy here.
From Baobab.
Bennsimon shoes I fell in love with instantly. Not my size ;(
It is HOT here...30 degrees
Lots of print flowy sheer dresses.
The shortest line (not very) was for truffles omelette with crunchy truffle slices on top the salad
Or you could get a quartet of tartes savory and sweet (line definitely too long).
Not the Aixoise favorite sweet, Calisson by the tartes.

Their packaging says Provence to me. I'm here through Sunday so more sunshine and color to come PBers. Stay tuned.

    I love Provence! Have vacationed there 3 times with some artists, one in St Sauterin near Apt and twice in Gault. Since I am not an artist, I did the driving as I can do the stick shift!

    Your beautiful posts make me smile and tear up at the same time. I want to be right there, right now and taste and buy everything you picture! Thank you so much for the beauty you bring into my life through Paris Breakfasts!!!

  10. Love the color, the omelette, the tartes and the mec in the blue stripe shirt slicing truffles.

  11. So happy to ride your coat tails to this beautiful place. I have bought issues of Cote Sud for decades (though they've gotten a little stylistically austere lately). There is nothing austere about your posts and for that I love them!


Love hearing from you
