{travel | style inspiration : a walk about nice & a riviera-chic packing list}

words & photography by victoria berezhna

There are very few places that evoke chic summer style quite like Nice, with its long palm tree-lined Promenade des Anglais where one can wander all day along the breezy cafés, parasols in pastel shades and crystal clear Mediterranean waters, watching the relaxed sunbathers get that glowing Riviera bronzed look, whilst Le Negresco towers above the seafront, magnificently reminiscing upon its golden age in the 20s.

 A short walk away is the charming city centre where cobbled streets and bold-coloured shutters contrast with crisp whites and reflect the laid-back attitude that is perceived along the whole coast of the South of France . . .

Packing for the Nice requires a re-watch of To Catch A Thief starring the epitome of Riviera Glamour -- Grace Kelly, and a selection of lace and organza items in shades of ecru, bisque and apricot, where one can feel comfortable in a beautiful sundress, a pair of wedge sandals and of course, some diamond studs . . .

Nº1 - broderie anglaise cotton shirt // Nº2 - crepe shorts // Nº3 - hermes caleche eau de toilette & chanel vernis in emprise // Nº4 - chanel small boy flap bag {only available in stores} // Nº5 - flower cat eye sunglasses // Nº6 - valentino chantilly lace espadrilles // Nº7 - la perla swimsuit // Nº8 - platinum diamond stud earrings // Nº9 - dipped dyed scarf // Nº10 - lace-embroidered organza dress

In exactly one month I'll be in Nice for the second time of my life! I love this city, everything is beautiful and the food is so good.
