St. Remy de Provence August 2010

St. Remy de Provence August 2010

This could prove to be one of my very favorite vacations. All the elements were there......

beautiful Provencial Mas just outside the ancient and charming village of St. Remy and

a garden unlike any I had ever seen. My friend, Joel, who is an architect and decorator had

recently redone this house and instrumented a complete make-over of the garden.

Imagine rows of lavender surrounding the numerous olive trees framed by a garden

of hundreds of white roses.

Every evening my host would prepare cocktails on the terrace. Ice cold rose' wine

served with black tapenade and fresh bread from the local bakery. Cheeses were amazing!!!

Now that is a nice summer evening in Provence.

Evenings in Provence call for cashmere, ladies. I am wearing my lemon sherbet colored

poncho with my favorite summer shorts my Lily Pulitzer. DO notice my gold metalic

Tropezienne Rondini of St. Tropez. Joel, who is on my best dressed list

of chic French Ladies has teamed her bright white poncho with silk Prada floral pyjamas.

Merci a thousand times over to Joel

for her very generous invitation et

Bonsoir et a tres bientot a St. Remy
