While in Normandy we visited the famous beaches, Juno, Gold, Utah and Ohama that the allies took over from Nazi Germany. We learnt so much about what happened there and it was so neat to see but also heart breaking, from seeing the beautiful beaches but then seeing all the graves. It was so sad. But I am so glad we went there, it was a great experience.

I hope you like the travel diaries I am putting together from our trip. I took so many photos and I want to share them all.

Only jacket, H&M sweater, Zara t-shirt and bag and J Brand jeans

We had a lot of sun while on our Europe trip but even so, there was lots of wind because we were by the ocean so it made it feel a bit more chilly while there. So I had to layer up a lot of the time while there. Here I layered some of my favourite pieces for going out for dinner in the little town, Asnelles that we stayed at. We had such a fantastic meal there with wine, oysters, duck and dessert. It was so good. After that we watched the beautiful sunset before heading to bed.

BTW... I can't believe its already August 1st. Time is going by so fast and some change is coming shortly, but more on that later.

During our stay in France, we stayed in the Normandy area for a few days. We wanted to learn more about the war and see for ourselves what happened there. It was a bitter sweet kind of feeling. All the beauty surrounding us yet knowing all the horrible things that happened was a bit overwhelming. But definitely worth the visit. This is Gold beach where the British landed and helped the allies take back France. You can see the remains from the harbour that they made in the water. We stayed right here in a little town called Asnelles.

What a beautiful sunset, am I right!?!

I would like to say that it's easy to get a basics wardrobe then add on if you like, but it really isn't. Finding those perfect pieces is really hard. I am constantly on the look out for those certain items that my wardrobe is missing. One of those items was this denim jacket. I had been wanting a denim jacket that was long enough but not to oversized and when I found this one, I could not let it out of my arms. It was exactly what I was looking for. So, if you like me are trying to build a great basics wardrobe, just know it will take time. I have been working on mine for a few years now and I am not even close to being done but it is so great when you find those perfect pieces. I am so glad I had this jacket to travel around with me on this Europe trip.

I wore this new favourite jacket of mine for sight seeing in the Normandy area. See this post here of me wearing it and more on Normandy.
