Nautical Riviera Style

Last week my husband and I decided to visit my youngest son at the beach. The weather was more than extraordinary at the coastal area of North Carolina, therefore, a photo shoot was a must. Before heading to bare our toes in the sand, we stopped by the River Walk in Wilmington where this photoshoot was taken.
I often get inspired by vintage photos from the Italian and French Rivieras and with that inspiration in mind, I decided to wear a modern/retro nautical look for this trip.

Nautical Fashion Retro Style

I wanted to be comfortable in order to walk around town with my youngest son and husband, but at the same time, I wanted to wear something chic that matched the coastal ambient.
As you can see, I've been wearing my vintage white sunglasses and my basket bag non-stop since I bought them. Those two accessories are truly refreshing my Spring/Summer wardrobe, and let's not forget about my chic buckled sandals. Those were a true investment, which I'm planning to wear for years to come.

Nautical Street Style

I don't know if you noticed, but I applied a retro-style filter to the photos in order to make them look vintage. What I love the most about this entire photo shoot besides the beautiful area, is the retro-meets-modern vibe of my outfit. The vintage hat and sunglasses gave this preppy modern look a delightful vintage flare.
