Nice and Colorful








Tunic and shift dresses are so easy and comfortable to wear. While I love the idea of a shift dress for strolling the beach and exploring a new town like Nice, France, the boxy shape of these dresses is not the easiest to wear if you are short with curves. Because of this I usually steer clear of this style. I was pleasantly surprised, however, when I found this super-comfortable yet flattering patterned tunic dress at a local boutique back home. It just goes to show you really do need to try things on.

I knew this dress would be perfect for travel, especially for my weekend in the French Riviera. It was the first warmer weekend of spring and I couldn't wait to go sans tights. You will notice, however, the Italian man sitting behind me in some of the photos still wearing his puffy jacket. Italians crack me up with this. No matter the high temperature of the day, they dress for the temperature when they leave the house in the morning. So even though the sun was out and it was about 72 degrees when we took these photos, no Italian would dare go with out their puffy jacket if that morning was chilly (which it definitely was lol)! I, on the other hand, fully embraced wearing my long sleeve tunic dress complete with new espadrilles purchased in Barcelona.

Unfortunately, I can't find this exact dress online, but I have rounded up some similar options. I love the shape and color of this dress, and it also comes in a beautiful floral pattern. I also like the easy feel of this dress and the fun pattern of this one. The espadrilles were also a local purchase (you can shop online here), but I am loving these Soludos.


Happy Monday!
