One of the first things we saw when we arrived in Provence was the abundance of blooming poppy fields all around. On our drive from the airport to our hotel, we kept seeing flashes of red in the distance and quickly figured out what they were. We kept saving the locations of different fields, but eventually stopped when we realized that they were pretty much everywhere. That’s one of the things I love most about the countryside in Provence, there’s always something to be discovered around every corner, with constant newness coming into season or bloom. Along with the poppy fields, there were cherry trees all over the Luberon region that we stayed in.
I bought this little red polka dot mini dress before our trip and knew it was perfect when we headed out to stop by some poppy fields before dinner one evening. It’s a steal at under $60 and also comes in a blue and white striped version here. Both of them would be perfect for the 4th of July next week! I also love this red and white gingham version (that has a similar style/shape to mine) along with this solid red one, both under $60. And if you’re looking for more mini dress ideas for summer, this cherry print one and this off the shoulder one are great options, too!
