Blog 36: How I tackle Nice

Considering I was only in Nice for 3 days, it felt like I had been there a lifetime. Nice is honestly one of the most beautiful places I have ever been with gorgeous old French houses lining the front of the ‘Promenade Anglaise’ and the sun lightly tanning you into a golden brown (or bright red tomato like me). We visited the markets and the squares but really we spent our time on the grey pebbled beach. The only thing I have to complain about would be the pebbled beach as it was a fight to get into the ocean with a thousand daggers stabbing at your feet.

However the blue sky numbed the slight pains and I was able to enjoy gorgeous food in the evenings and the beautiful sun in the day. The best part of this holiday was finding a lovely Seafood restaurant and being extremely excited when they brought out the biggest plate of prawns I had ever seen! I think it’s fair to say I will be definitely wanting to go back to Nice soon.

 

In the day



Playsuit £19.12 Yoins

This gorgeous playsuit was sent to me by Yoins and I love it so much that I would have bought it even if they hadn’t sent it me! It is incredibly comfy and looks fantastic as it’s just so different. You all know I’m a sucker for a bardot neckline but the sleeves have to take the prize for this outfit. OMG JUST LOOK AT THEM! They are gorgeous and floaty and tbh makes me feel like a princess. It is true to size however it is slightly wider than it is longer so I would downsize if you are on the fence. I got this is a UK 8-10 and it isn’t as tight fitting as I would have wanted but it still fits nicely and flatters my figure. The material is very light as well which is perfect in hotter climates. Overall, now my favourite playsuit!

 

The Accessories


Sunglasses £92, Sunglasses shop

These sunglasses were sent to me by the wonderful Sunglasses shop. I’m always very sceptical buying sunglasses online because I feel it’s so hard to tell if they will suit you. I was lucky enough to find these Gold Ralph Lauren sunglasses which were very similar to my black pair. I felt more confident that the cateye style would suit my face and I really wanted something more statement. These were a perfect option as they go with just about anything, as you tell, they feature in all my photos! They came beautifully packaged and very quickly. I think having a good sunglasses case is important to maintaining the quality of the sunglasses and I was very please with the one that came. Overall these have nearly taken over as my favourite pair and I would highly recommend them as a sturdy and stylish pair of sunglasses!

Choker £3.99 Yoins

This Choker was also sent to my by Yoins. I think it is a gorgeous choker with very cute detail and it worked perfectly with the playsuit. However the choker consists of two bands, the velvet black band and then the lace band. This means they easily move around over each other which is very frustrating! I wish hey had just put the two bands together so it doesn’t fall apart and look weird! (NB: This exact choker is out of stock so I’ve linked one similar which only has one band so I think it will be better!)

On the beach

Dress £30 The Placard , Bikini top £30 (sale) Ted baker, Bottoms £4 Primark

As previously mentioned, the beaches in Nice are pebbly and although this is beautiful for photos, the pain from the stones is seriously real. Therefore opt for pretty flip-flops or sexy jelly shoes in order to not kill your feet while getting into the sea. I wore a gorgeous floral Ted Baker bikini (bought in the sale) which is so beautiful and holds you in (which is what I need!). I also got sent this bikini throw over which I have mixed opinions about. On the one hand it is actually gorgeous, so lacy and feminine which I think is perfect. However the material wasn’t the best quality and I found the waistline to be higher than my waistline making me look a little fat from the front. However I would recommend this dress for someone shorter than me (5’9 and below) as it may fit them better. I also think it would be perfect for a more formal pool party rather than as a beach throw over.

    The pretty white romper could easily transition from day to evening wear too. It looks elegant and fun. Besides the lovely outfits, I really like the cobble-stoned shores. Cheers!!

    I am living near Nice (1 hour and half of drive) but I don’t go there much, even if I really enjoy it. I especially love the old Nice, with the colorful houses. It feels like Italy somehow! That’s one of the reason I like the place 😉
