Puffy Pinstripes in Provence

Welcome to the next ensemble of my Provencal life! I. can. not. get. over. this. place.

Be sure to check out my other first Provence looks here and here and see Guide to 48 Hours in Provence here. As I mentioned, before the trip, I meticulously planned out all of my outfits based on the places were were going. This pinstripe top, with puffy sleeves a  square cut neck was giving me all the Beauty and the Beast vibes, and I knew it would be perfect in Provence since it's a fun trendy piece that incorporates elements of old world charm.

The second I had my sights set on a straw boater hat, I knew I wanted to take it to Provence and it honestly just "fit" so well. The hat came with a plastic insert to keep it's shape, so I was able to travel with the insert in the hat, and I stuffed my makeup bag in the insert to help keep it from collapsing. That ensured the hat didn't get crunched or smushed on our long journey to and from France.

I finished off the ensemble with a fun black ruffle midi skirt, which I'm finding to be so versatile this summer! It works in place of a basic black skirt, or as a statement piece a la dancing lady emoji.

This ensemble saw me through the Papal Palace and lavender fields in Avignon, Senanque Abbey in Gordes, and into dinner in Aix-en-Provence. It worked perfectly from small village to a city dinner, and it was so comfortable all day long.

Be sure to check in again soon to get more details on our trip around Provence, I'll do a whole guide of what you shouldn't miss when visiting!
