Today I bring you a post with many ,many pictures to show you our last trip to the Loire Castles .
We stayed in Blois , a city to 2 hours away from Paris , located on the banks of the Loire River . A strategic point to visit the different castles of the Loire.
On Saturday we visited the famous castle of Chambord . It is one of the most famous castles in the world due to its Renaissance architecture , which combines medieval forms with classical Italian structures . It was built as a hunting lodge for King Francis I in 1539.
Walking through its halls, and all the rooms made me feel like an authentic medieval princess. The tower and especially the double helix staircase , were so fun, and you have to be careful if you do not want to get lost.
After the visit we made a picnic in the gardens next to the river Cosson , and we still got some time to visit the city of Blois.
I choose a country outfit to match the castle. I love the lacy trend , and it seems that my grandfather, who is a visionary , love it as well: he gave me these lacy shorts and this vest. I love them! They are very comfortable and gave you a chic look . I combined them with a brown shirt with ¾ sleeves and a maxi collar , for a touch of color. In the morning , the weather cooled off , so I used my maxi fur vest to protect me from the cold ; and to be protected from the sun , flowered sunnies and this straw hat with ears, I fell in love as soon as I saw it.
Hope you enjoy the pictures. Thank you so much for your comments !
