Outfit: Bardot-ing Through the French Riviera

top // skirt (similar) // jacket // bag (last seen here) // sandals (similar)

Is there any better top to wear when traveling through the French Riviera then a Bridgette Bardot inspired tie cropped top? Nope! It was so nice to officially ditch the tights and embrace some spring clothing (although I will admit I was a little chilly at times). Not only is this top adorable, but it is completely reversible! That's right, two tops for the price of one. I can't wait to wear the floral side with a striped skirt.

After weeks of long days week days in the archive and weekends gallivanting around Europe (Prague, Paris, London, Dublin, and Barcelona) it was amazing to finally have a weekend off in Florence. And I made the most of it. I caught up on laundry, emails, blog posts, workouts, got my hair done, and finally made it to the grocery store! I feel revitalized, and while I don't regret any of my travels (my motto - I'll sleep when I'm dead), it was nice to take it easy. I even created a new print for the Preppy Printshop!

But don't worry, I can't stay put for long! Next up? I think it will be Munich... stay tuned!

Happy Monday!

  1. I love that skirt! It looks great with the top too. It's nice to have a relaxing weekend to get caught up and ready to hit the ground running sometimes, but I'm excited to hear about your next adventure too :)

    Sweet Spontaneity

  2. Gorgeous look for hanging by the water, I need that top!! Every once in awhile everyone needs a weekend to get 'caught up.' Luckily for you, you can do it in Italy!

    1. I am obsessed with this top, you should definitely get one!

  3. I saw this in Jennifer's shop and loved the print but thought it too daring for me - but you make it seem much more wearable than I thought!

  4. Gorgeous photos! I love those sandals!

    Prep on a Budget

  5. I have a travel essentials question for you or anyone! I am traveling to Scotland in 4 weeks and I am deciding between a large Longchamp tote and a medium Longchamp tote. I know you have a medium navy one... is it big enough for day trips and on the plane? Just wondering, any advice would help!

    1. Oh that's a tough one, I have both and love them for different reasons. The large is too big for day trips but perfect for plane travel. My medium is perfect for day trips, but too small for the plane (I prefer something I can fit my laptop in). Hope that helps!

  6. The top is cute, but I really like that lacey skirt. Texture as a detail, but still subtle. Lovely.

  7. where are those sandals from?

    1. They are Jcrew from last summer, but Jcrew Factory just released a version!

  8. Love your blog and outfit! Where did you get that top from?
