Riviera Chic

I've never been to the south of France, the closest I've come to St Tropez is a bottle of tanning lotion in my draw! Sunshine and yachts aside, I decided to channel my own chicness of the French Riviera with some classic navy and white pieces. The sun decided to make an appearance this weekend, hallelujah! A good excuse to hot foot it down to the docks in South London and catch me a sailor...

Good thing the sun was out, so I didn't freeze in my bare legs! It was so nice and calm being by the water. Who needs sandy beaches when I can rock this look in the City right?!

I'm all about classic and comfy pieces and this navy and white stripped top* is ideal to add a casual chicness to your wardrobe. It also feels very Parisian, which is never a bad thing ;) It has cute details such as the sailor style buttons, 3/4 sleeves and little front pocket. I like the top tucked in for a cute and girly look and the soft cotton material is not too thin. This is defo going to be a wardrobe staple and for £16 it's a steal!

I'm totally digging this matching navy skirt* and blazer* combo. The 3/4 sleeves and longer length of the blazer makes it casual and easy to wear, the textured fabric is soft and lightweight not the typical formal blazer material. I can imagine throwing this over a tee and jeans for a casual daytime look. 

The skirt has cute pocket details with the buttons and also who doesn't love pockets to stuff your hands in? It falls at a flattering length on the knee. I've also paired this skirt with trainers and it adds a more sporty yet girly vibe, which I really like. Are you guys feeling the matching suit?

There are so many details of these shoes that I can't enough off! The block heel is comfy and sturdy, the peep toe and sling back strap adds a chic vibe but also good for work and casual summer days. These sandals would look fab with maxi dresses and even  boyfriend jeans as well.

I feel like going on a cruise now or chilling on top of a fancy yacht somewhere haha. I would love to know what looks or style you can't wait to rock when it gets warmer? If you're feeling inspired to rock the nautical theme and add a fresh look to your wardrobe, you can find lots of navy and white colour block pieces with the Debenhams Riviera line, I know I'll be picking up some more stripped tops!
