After our first day in Les Baux-de-Provence, which we had spent nicely at the pool of our hotel Baumanière during the afternoon, we decided to leave at around 5 pm and discover a bit more of the surrounding region instead of going back to the hotel room before dinner.
So we took the car and drove to a city called Maussane-les-Alpilles. A cute little town with very beautiful old buildings, lovely afternoon light and only very few people, or cats, crossing the road here and there. It was a calm and lovely atmosphere that made us fall in love with Maussane straight away.
And because we thought this city was so lovely, we spontaneously decided to take some pictures of me wearing my beloved dark floral dress by Jake*s*. The only “problem”? I was not styled at all. My hair was still kind of fuzzy and half-wet from the pool and I was wearing hardly any make-up. A couple of years ago, I would have never let someone take my picture without being styled – at all. But these days, I’m super relaxed when it comes to styling. I just feel so well in my own skin that I don’t actually care if my hair is styled or if I am wearing make-up.
But that’s not the only reason I really love these pictures. It is, of course, also because of the gorgeous dress, the impressive house we used as a backdrop, and because of the beautiful evening light.
How do you like the pictures and the dress? And how about you? Do you only go outside with make-up and styled hair? Or is it okay for you if you, sometimes, aren’t that made-up?
*Transparency: the dress is a PR sample given to me by Jake*s.
