Adventures in Nice

Before arriving in France I discovered there were these fantastic antique markets in Nice, where we would be visiting.  We took the train from Monaco to Nice and spent the afternoon strolling the promenade, enjoying cappuccinos beside the ocean and searching for this antique market.  Just when we were about to give up, assuming it wasn’t operating during the week, we saw the street tents across the street in the distance.  We spent a few hours strolling all of the beautiful vintage clothing, handbags, home decor, jewelry, and furniture.  It was an absolute dream for someone who likes to antique!  We saw vintage Chanel, Dior, Lagerfeld, Louis Vuitton, antique french linens, beautiful fabrics, and some of the most unique items, like the vintage hand decorated toilet! We then stumbled upon the most decadent creperie, Ballanger, and overindulged on the sweetest of treats.  I also found this great vintage shop called  Depot Vente Luxe, which had lots of excellent treasures. I highly recommend discovering these spots for yourself, they were magical, and the market in particular reminded me of Midnight in Paris. You'll notice I'm wearing a backpack in a lot of these shots, which is new for me.  I was never a fan of backpacks until I found this perfectly sized Cole Haan bag, it fit all my travel essentials, kept my hands free, and still looked effortlessly chic.
