Happy Halloween everyone! No, this post has nothing to do with Halloween but seeing as I am sharing it with you all on this October 31st I figured I would wish you all a happy holiday anyway. On another note, I thought that I should give you all a little update since a lot has been going on in my little life. You may or may not know that last week on the 23rd it was my 19th birthday! Ahhh scary, I’m really becoming a true adult :P no thank you. However, it was not the happiest of birthday’s as I was celebrating it in the hospital. I’m fine and back home recovering with a little TLC and binge watching Law and Order SVU but I was admitted to the hospital for 5 days do to a serious infection in the kidney. It was painful, the hospital was not any place I wanted to be and especially NOT on my birthday and in the week before Halloween. But, it’s all okay because I am healed, home and healthy. A little infection I thought to be a cold turned out to be more serious than I realized and because of this blogging and keeping everyone updated was obviously not on the top of my list of priorities. Never fear anyhow because I am back with daily posts for you all sharing my adventures and over the top OOTDs. I’ll also be getting to finally celebrate my birthday this weekend and I’ll be sharing all the fun details of my celebration + my Halloween costume! No one is gonna stop me from at least putting on that costume (it’s a surprise) no illness, no doctor.. I am GOING to get to wear that costume!
Now that you are all up to date it’s time to talk about the actual post! These photos are from my time I spent earlier this month out near South France in the Charente region. Being out in the countryside is so magical. The fact that you can walk a mile down the road and be stranded in a field of sunflowers and sunshine is amazing to me as a city girl. I wanted nothing more than to lay out and have a picnic with my love and I was especially thrilled when I found out there was a windmill we could walk to nearby. It’s crazy and so fascinating to think that this windmill has probably been there longer than America has been a country. Just the feeling of the region makes you feel like you’ve gone back in time to rural france. With little french men riding their bikes and wearing berets, a neighbor with his very own donkey used for pulling and plowing and not to mention the old brick barns turned into modern homes on the inside with airy lofts and authentic fireplaces. For a stroll through the country and still buying into my whole “quintessential French girl” thing I wore a simple floral mini dress from Reformation with my over worn white Prada chunky sandals. I stole my loves vintage Levi denim jacket (I’m from Southern California, I get cold in European Summer) and just to make sure I was an obnoxious enough American I packed my new Gucci backpack with the polaroid camera, water, my Acne Mustang sunnies and a few other things we might need for a country stroll. It was truly picture perfect. There were Sunflower Fields Forever…
