FLYING THE GREEN FLAG

I had decided to stop talking about the countryside. The original idea was to devote this post to Mark Borthwick (Elizabeth, my book only arrived last week) but for reasons that need not detain us here I have found myself contemplating pictures I took in France last week. It gives me a tingle of pleasure to think of the textures and colours of Normandy. A wholesome life. The sun, sea, endless verdant fields, apple trees, brocantes* in every village and horses. A slow pace which is already eluding me in London with its electrifying reality.

*Brocantes are sales of heirlooms, jumble or antiques great for hardcore bargain hunters.

Back to fashion tomorrow!

All picture are mine and were taken in Normandie (the region of Le Perche), Mont St Michel and Thoiry. Wearing my Barbour, J Brand jeans, Mulberry bag.

Super belles photos mais je te préviens, je viens te voir à Londres mais pas à la campagne! Non Non Non!!!T'es trop mignonne avec tes ptites converse - Et le sac Mulberry à la campagne, ça vaut bien des Louboutin un jour de mariage.10/10 mademoiselle!

I think the Mont Saint Michel is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been to. super photos too, I love how they are all the same colour tone.

oh, how i miss the country. i grew up on a farm with trees and mist and cows and the morning routine of feeding the pigs. these pictures are beautiful; i thank you for sharing and giving me a little piece of home!
shall we exchange links?

the empty street looks so peaceful. i grew up in the "country", but it looked more like something out of some hill-billy nightmare (complete with children without shoes and not the hippie-chic, but more of the trailer park chaos). the fog is perfect.
