One of the aspects of blogging I like most is meeting new and interesting people, especially fellow bloggers. I find the blogging community extremely friendly, helpful and welcoming. So it was with great pleasure that I caught several buses and a train to Nice to have lunch with the amazing blogger Judith of Style Crone. If you have not visited her site you simply must, especially if you are a fan of “hats”. She is an expert on the subject and an excellent role model for hat wearing. She always looks so elegant and chic in her vintage hats.
She also runs a feature on her blog “hat attack”, where all of us hat enthusiasts can join in the fun and share our millinery finery.
My mother often wore hats, especially for special occasions and I think I have inherited her passion. I wear a hat most days, although mine are slightly more utilitarian.
After lunch I had some had some time to wander round Nice admiring the architecture and taking a few photos. Enjoy.
I noticed a distinct autumnal feel to the streets.
Les Promenade des anglais was deserted due to the inclement weather.
Back to Nice next Wednesday to share some more photos of the Port area. See you then.
OMG, to be able to get to the Riviera by train or bus !!!
Must be wonderful. And, also wonderful to meet such a charming woman.
I know Nice well as we often summered in Cannes, Juan les Pins and environs.
My husband absolutely loved the life there and could have actually lived there…except he had to see the University of Texas Longhorn Football games…and that came before anything else.
Nice looks beautiful – hope I can get there one day. Will add it to my list… along with Cabourg (I want to stay at the Grand Hotel even if it’s just for one night) and St. Marc sur Mer (where Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday was filmed). I love Judith’s hat – I’ll have a look at her blog. Sounds like you had a lovely day.
We were in Nice last week and I fell in love with it. The architecture, Les Premenade des Anglais and especially the market. I would return in a heartbeat.
Hi Josephine! Thank you so much for taking the time and the effort to meet in Nice for lunch. Braving the weather and the complicated transportation was no small thing! You are even more beautiful and charming in person and I enjoyed every minute of our time together.
Gorgeous photos of Nice. The South of France was beyond my wildest expectations in every way!
