Booking a trip to the South of France for Easter was one of the best decisions I’ve made in a long, long time. My break to Hamburg this month was great but fleeting; hopping to another city for one night is much more stressful than it is stress relieving. The prospect of four long days to soak up the sun, eat croissants and drink good wine with friends is absolute bliss.
I absolutely love the South of France, it’s so easy to flit between Nice, Monte Carlo, Antibes, Cannes and lots of pretty little towns between them. Pretty houses and the famous azure waters make the perfect backdrop for a chic-but-chilled long weekend. Unlike most blogger, my holiday wardrobe tends to be quite relaxed, except when there’s an occasion to pull a “look” together. For me, holidays are to be enjoyed rather than a working holiday spent finding a pretty backdrop to take outfit shots and Instagramming every moment.
Having said that, when you find yourself spending the day in Cannes, working on your tan and wandering through the excellent vintage market, it’s best to pull together a look rather than just throw on a crumpled tee and some shorts. Everyone in Cannes in impossibly chic.
I decided to smarten up my standard holiday uniform of denim cut offs and Stan Smiths with a striped shirt. Simple but effective. I still wanted to keep it a little casj so went for a half-tuck. There’s nothing more complicated to my look so keeping my post short and sweet, like my outfit.
