Blue Pleats at Le Logis Grey Goose

On our last night in France I decided to get dressed up. It’s not very often you find yourself at a 17th century manor in the French countryside, so naturally it was something to celebrate.

This pleated maxi dress arrived just a few days before I left and ended up being perfect for our last night. I even matched the blue glasses that our poolside Grey Goose cocktails were served in! I promise, that wasn’t on purpose.

It’s flowy, swishy and has an open back that I absolutely love. It was one of those dresses you put on and instantly feel elegant and beautiful. If you have any weddings coming up this summer, this dress would be amazing! And, if you’re the bride, it comes in white and would be stunning for a rehearsal dinner. Just saying…

Before dinner and drinks, I spent some time wandering the grounds with Jenn, snapping pictures in front of the flower-lined driveway and soaking up every last bit of the beauty before we had to leave.

Earlier that day, we had the opportunity to meet François Thibault, the French cellar master responsible for creating Grey Goose. We learned about what makes Grey Goose different — it’s their production process and most importantly, the ingredients they use. The wheat is sourced from Picardy, France which produces top-notch bread-making wheat. Which, really, makes perfect sense.

Have you tried to only eat one piece of French bread?! It’s impossible.

Anyway, that’s what sets their vodka apart from others and it’s a big reason why it’s known to be one of the best tasting vodkas on the market. Out of all the Grey Goose flavors, Le Melon was my favorite and the Grand Fizz with Le Melon vodka became my drink of choice during the trip.

Even though it rained on and off a bit, that last night was pretty magical and these pictures are giving me a serious case of wanderlust which means it’s time to start thinking about our next trip!

What locations are on your travel wish list? Do you have any pieces that make you feel amazing when you wear them?


BTW, the French countryside, and two days in Austin, Texas.
