Aix-en-Provence Photo Diary

♫ Thievery Corporation- Shadows of Ourselves ♫ 

 Golden hour after a loooong day of exploring!

Hey lovelies!

After Lyon it was time to go on my own and explore the South of France....although I was super duper tired I was also very excited since I was a first timer out in the South of France! I took the train down South to Aix-en-Provence, this small quaint city (which felt more like a town) is known for its beautiful lavender fields and countryside. Visiting the lavender fields has been on my bucket list for a while so I'm glad I booked the tour in advance! 
 I'm also glad I got to explore Provence's little "downtown" area filled with the cutest shops, bookstores, restaurants, and a bunch of outdoor markets!

Upon arriving the weather immediately reminded me of back home, dry and extra hot! Fruit stands and markets were seen almost everywhere outside and you bet I took advantage and bought some fruits, especially fresh organic peaches since they were in season....they were literally everywhere guys...and so delicious!

Overall I loved this small city it had a certain charm to it, the architecture, the summery golden light, the weather, and  the locals were super friendly and laid-back! And although I was under the weather for like a day or two I still had such an unforgettable time and enjoyed this beautiful city!

Have you guys been?

Cutest pups everywhere!

Linen jumpsuits and strappy sandals all summer long

The straw bags and hats are my absolute fave! Bet it was nice to indulge on all the fruits tho. I knew you'd miss them. We're spoiled here for sure.
