So I got to spend a week in the South of France this month and wanted to share with you some relaxing and beautiful days spent there to hopefully give you some inpiration for your vacations or just day dream a bit.

An afternoon in Monaco :

– We walked around the quiet streets of the upper part of the coast

– Visited the Royal Palace and enjoyed the view from one of the highest spots of Monaco

– Went down to the Marina to see the gorgeous boats

– Headed to Monte Carlo to seet the high end shops, luxury hotels and of course THE gorgeous Casino

Highly recommend cheching out: http://www.hoteldeparismontecarlo.com/discover-the-hotel/virtual-tour/

We stopped at the Hotel de Paris for a drink at the Bar Américain. I highly recommend this place. Cocktails are not cheap but affordable and the whole experience is definitely worth it. The décor is splendid very 1930’s, everything is very woody, a wonderful piano stands making you think about all the great concerts this place may have known in the past and the current excellent ones. You can definitely feel the jazz vibe and we all know my love for it. THE PLUS SIDE: Cocktails come with delicious snacks and the staff personnel is the best you could ask for.

Vilebrequin – The Preppy and Funny Brand

I have never mentioned Vilebrequin on my blog before but let me tell you this is one of my favorite brands ever for men swimwear.

Vilebrequin is highly known for its excellent quality fabrics, unique patterns with fun and vivid prints and finally the possibility of buying matching trunks for little boys and grownups for the father & son look.

This brand was created in the fabulous city of St-Tropez, in the French Riviera and embodies the whole croisette lifestyle.
– Early mornings having breakfast to the sound of cicadas
– Coffee & Newspaper reading at the Marina
– Lunch at the beach
– Late afternoon playing pétanque
– Dinner in family
– Night out (optional but good!)

In other words, the brand echoes a pretty prep lifestyle that I am all about. And what I love about it is that the funky prints will prevent the chic allure to become too posh looking. In fact you would expect the 40 year old man, matching his 4 year old with its turtle green and pink swim shorts, to be pretty cool, laid back and FUN.

In other words, this is definitely a P&F Brand to me and if you can get your loved ones a model from there – you would be the coolest!

They also have models for women that are pretty nice and that I invite you to check out – http://us.vilebrequin.com/.

Cheers,

ARE YOU SERIOUSLY WEARING THESE SHOES?!

Today’s Song!

Hi guys!

Well, I NEEDED to post this. I may be super late on this trend, I don’t know. But this is such a surprise for me.

If like me you have already been to a beach with little rocks instead of sand (I spent all my summer in Nice– South of France, until last year), you may have already used these little sexy things.

You may know that I started a TUMBLR account (follow here!) two days ago. Can you guess what have popped to my eyes everyday since then?

OH YEA. The shoes are back brothers! HOW COOL?! Never thought they could look that cute.

What do you think? YAY or NAY?

Going for a swim will never be a nightmare again. Well, at least this summer. Dear trend, YOU CAN STAY IN.

XOXO,

My lovely wooden boat.

Today’s Song!

Hey you all!

Well, as you know, I am crazy about boats! I would love to spend a nice afternoon, sunbathing in one of these amazing boats… Some nice music and classy jokes would be very welcome.

Actually, it is not the hardest dream on Earth, so I should think about doing this very soon!

What do you think? Any experiences like this one already?

XOXO,

P&F
