LAVENDER FIELDS

PicMonkey+Collagfe

And here we are to continue our trip to Provence. The main mission of our first day was finding the huge lavender fields so common in Provence (hmmm, not so much!). in july I’ve started to seen so many photos of lavander fields on instagram that I thought was really absurd we never went there since it’s not so far from Sanremo, the city where we spend most of our summer days.

Find thelavenderwas my mission!

Ed eccoci qua a continuare il nostro viaggio in Provenza. Lo scopo del nostro primo giorno era trovare le tanto note distese di lavanda. Ne avevo viste cosi tante su instagram che mi è parso veramente assurdo non esserci mai andata essendo non cosi distanti da Sanremo, la città dove passiamo la maggior parte della nostra estate.
Trovare la lavanda era la mia missione!

We leaved Sanremo for Provence in at early morning, the aim of the day was to find the lavender and arrive on time in Avignon, before diying of tiredness.
Our trip was super last-minute and often happened to us to have no idea where to sleep the day before we got in the place.
To find the lavender I downloaded a map from the internet, but oh, I do not recommend it at all, because my map was a giant purple stain which started from Grasse and came up in Aix en Provence, when in fact we found lavender only around Valensole, and that explains the reason why all people are going there.
Once in Valensole
after we stopped along the road in some small cute cities as Castellaine and Gourdon (in the next post) and for some shots in the middle of sunflowers (here), we finally found the lavender fields ALMOST ALL CUTTED. But we decided not to give up continuing to hope for some last meter of field flowers and then we found it, the smell was intense and the
landscape magnificent though the lavender was practically all faded and a bit dry.
ps: go there in mid-July!
I wanted to create some contrast with the background of lavender Valensole opting for a dress in light chiffon and yellow lace.
It’s one of those dresses perfect for the summer, light and sunny, wearing which really puts you in a good mood. And you can buy it here for less than $ 15!

Siamo partiti da Sanremo verso la Provenza al mattino presto, lo scopo del primo giorno era trovare la lavanda ed arrivare in tempo ad Avignone, prima di svenire per la stanchezza diciamo. 
Il nostro viaggio era super last-minute e spesso ci è capitato di non avere idea dove dormire il giorno prima che arrivassimo nel posto.

Per trovare la lavanda mi sono scaricata una mappa da internet, ma oh, non ve la suggerisco per niente, perchè la mia mappa era una giagantesca mappa viola che partiva da Grasse ed arrivava fino ad Aix en Provence, mentre in realtà la lavanda l’abbiamo trovata solo intorno a Valensole, ed ecco spiegata la ragione perchè tutti vanno li. 

Arrivati a Valensole dopo esserci fermati lungo strada in qualche paesino carino come Castellaine e Gourdon ( nel prossimo post) e per qualche scatto in mezzo ai girasoli ( qui), abbiamo trovato finalmente i campi di lavanda QUASI TUTTI TAGLIATI. Ma abbiamo deciso di non arrenderci continuando a sperare per qualche ultimo metro di campo ancor fiorito ed eccolo che l’abbiamo trovato, il profumo era intenso e il paesaggio magnifico anche se ormai la lavanda era praticamente tutta sfiorita e un po secca. ps: andateci a metà luglio!

Ho voluto creare un po di contrasto con lo sfondo lavanda di Valensole optando per un abitino leggero in chiffono e pizzo in giallo. 
E’ uno di quei abiti perfetti per l’estate, leggero e solare, quello che indossare ti mette veramente di buon umore. E lo potete acquistare qui per meno di 15$!
