I’m all in to the pencil skirt at the moment. A perfect transparent style that you can wear both  day and night. I love to style it with a boyish t-shirt and a pair of sneakers.
I bought mine in silk with a zip detail on a Lovechild 1979 sale, but I have found 3 perfect and budget friendly styles for you.

Right now, I’m enjoying some quiet night in my aunts house while my apartment is being renovated. This is my favorite outfit at the moment, a feminine skirt and a vintage t-shirt.

SUMMERGUIDE TO SOUTHERN FRANCE

Southern France is definitely my favorite place to spend my summer. I go to my family’s summerhouse every year, and though I would share my favorite tips to the area.

 

1 Find a nice beach! Avoid the ones in Cannes and Nice, they are filled with tourists! We like to drive by the sea and find some small spots with a lot of cliffs and not so many people. This year we went to a beach close to Les Issambres, with no tourists at all!

 

2 Shopping: Go to Saint Tropez and Cannes if you want to shop. Cannes has everything from Zara to Celine. In Saint Tropez you will only find the expensive stores – but it’s a visit worth.

 

I can also recommend a visit in Grasse. They are known for their perfume stores. I go there every year to buy my two signature perfumes. My favorite one is called “petite nana” and it’s from one of the stores on the small and narrow streets.

 

Another must, according to shopping in France, is the pharmacies! You’ll find all the french beauty products like Bioderma, Nuxe and Avene to an really affordable price.

 

3 Beautiful places to visit: If you drive along the coast from Cannes to Frejus, you will drive by the beautiful city Mandelieu. This city has one of the most beautiful views from the cliffs, and then you can see the bubble house of Pierre Cardin up in the mountains. I was so overwhelmed when I first saw it.

 

You can also visit the Picasso museum in Antibes. It has a beautiful location, beautiful architecture and beautiful art inside.

 

4 Antiques: If you’re not staying in Nice, then visit Nice on a monday, where you’ll find an big antique market every monday. The address is Cours Saleya, and here you will find everything from french furniture, to vintage jewlerys and vintage designer bags.
This year I bought a vintage YSL shirt for 30 euros, a lithograph, a gold ring with three diamonds and a french vase.

 

Rent a car! The French landscape is so beautiful! Rent a car and drive around to all the small towns and by the coast – that’s the best way to experience France.
