Boating in Cassis, France
After visiting Nice, Monaco, and St. Tropez, I departed for the city of Marseille, France. Much like the others, Marseille is a port city in the south of France that is full of squares, markets, and a boat-lined port. However, Marseille is quite bigger as it is the second largest city in France - but, more to come on that later.
While staying in Marseille, I took a few day trips to nearby cities. On this day I visited the city of Cassis, which is about a 30-minute drive by taxi. Situated east of Marseille, it is famous for its unique cliffs called the Calanques. I found Cassis to be the most charming city. It was honestly picture perfect from start to finish. While in Cassis I walked the cobbled streets, enjoyed lunch, and took a boat cruise to visit the Calanques. The limestone cliffs are just breathtaking. From overwhelmingly steep heights the cliffs plunge into the bluest Mediterranean water I've ever seen.
So, what to wear on a boat cruise... I opted for an all-white outfit paired with nautical accessories. The backless peplum top being the show-stopper of the look, was perfect for a day at sea with its squared neckline, skinny spaghetti straps, and open back. While the darling peplum ruffles added interest without being overly impractical, the fitted waistline kept the look feeling clean and sophisticated.
