Menton: The Pearl of France

August 4, 2014 2 Permalink

 Last week, I explored a beautiful seaside town in the South of France, called Menton, also known as The Pearl of France. Situated right on the Mediterranean Sea, near the border of Italy, it is a colorful and adorable town.

Come and discover Menton with me…

Menton is famous for lemons and you can see that they like it with all the yellow colored buildings!

Every building was painted with different colors, where no two looked the same!

I decided to walk through the streets in an outfit that screams “South of France” and debut my new electric blue trousers!

I haven’t purchased trousers in a long time because I don’t always find the right fit, so I was really happy when I looked at myself in the change room mirror as I was incredibly drawn to the electric blue color at the shop!

Do you like wearing bright and electric colored pants? I don’t often wear them but as soon as I saw these blue pants at COS in France, I had to have them! I can’t wait to pair them with heels and take them on a night out too!
