If you asked me 5 years ago how I spent my weekend, I’d probably tell you some long story that involved me trawling through stores with arms full of purchases and a wallet full of debit. Going into a store used to be a luxury in itself as you delved into some brand’s magical world and emerged with a memento of the experience. Now days, it seems like either I have become lazy or shopping has become a bit of a chore, I’ve removed almost all of the former experience by converting to online shopping – even down to the smallest things, it feels like I spend most days ordering something from Amazon Prime. While I can’t put all the blame on technology, I’ve noticed that the same behaviour has slowly started trickling into other areas of my life, technological developments have made life so much easier now that we have stopped experiencing things whether it be people, places, and moments all for the ease of sitting behind a screen. It’s hard to be touched by something when all you are touching is a screen. But that’s it, technology has made us experience lazy (unless it is an experience that we can show everyone on Instagram that we did it). Which is maybe why I’ve felt a real thirst lately for something that I could submerge myself in, something tangible. So what could be a better reason to travel than the opportunity to delve into another culture and explore the unfamiliar? I guess that is how I found myself in the South of France on an adventure beginning in Avignon experiencing something rather than just spectating from behind a screen – although the summer heat and uneven cobbled streets might have been a little more enjoyable that way. But this historical city has truly given me (and my legs) an opportunity to not be lazy… and an excuse to wear Burberry.

Burberry is one of my favorites! You’re really rocking this printed shirt and I love it paired with the blue pants. Very chic as always!
I can totally relate to wanting to experience more than what can be felt through technology! And about shopping so much 5 years ago! I love this gorgeous Burberry shirt and the way you’ve styled it is perfect as usual.
Even your vacations are chic! Avignon looks so gorgeous I really want to go back to the south of France again. Last time I was in Corsica in the Med Sea it was so beautiful!
It is such a stunning place, you should totally get back there asap!
Wow looks really luxury!!! Amazed with your work! Totally cool!
haha any excuse to wear Burberry is a good reason!
I couldn’t agree more!
gosh i love the pictures! you look so retro and this could have come right out of the burbuerry catalogue – the prints are tooo cute! I’m hoping to be able to head to the south of france next year… it looks amazing there!
Any excuse to wear Burberry 😉
Just saw everyone said the same exact thing. Still, it’s true.
You can’t argue with the truth!
So so true… Agree on changing lives via technology but really enjoyed walking 25,000 steps every day when in NY and London… Great to take a break from the easy-order-online-life! xx
Interesting article. And your look is just brilliant! Love the shirt!!
