How can I call myself a fashion editor when I’ve never been to Paris? It’s a question I’ve jokingly asked myself for years, but I recently decided to skip the fashion capital of the world in favor of a jaunt through the small towns of the Provence region. Where did I get the idea? Instagram, of course. My mom and I originally booked the trip last year for my 30th birthday, but we ended up canceling due to COVID (which I’m sure sounds familiar to a lot of you).
We landed in Marseille in mid-September, rented a car, and promptly left the city in our rearview mirror, heading straight to the picturesque Luberon area of Provence, which includes villages such as Gordes, Lourmarin, Bonnieux, Roussillon, Goult, Ménerbes, and Lacoste.
