When in ROME!

Jumpsuit: Latin Clothing Co, Scarf: Valentino, Belt: borrowed from my sister, Sunglasses: Ray Ban

"Rome wasn't built in a day" and it certainly can not be conquered in one either! The advantage of going on a cruise, is that you see a lot of different cities and countries in a short amount of time. The disadvantage is that you only typically get one day in each, and when it comes to exploring Rome one day is not enough. We hit a few of the hotspots using a hop on and off bus like the Vatican, the Trevi Fountain, the colosseum and the government building. We missed out on a lot though like the spanish steps and the sistine chapel :( 
My sister and I fell in love with this city and we vowed that we would return and spend a week exploring it in detail... so much pizza, pasta and gelato to be consumed! The beauty of this city is that it is so culturally and historically dense, everywhere you look there is something amazing to see. 

As I previously said when it comes to packing, pack versatile pieces that you can mix and match accessories with. I previously wore this jumpsuit here in Madrid, but it looks like a different outfit because I changed belts, sunglasses and switched the hat for a scarf. When in Italy, it is ever so appropriate to wear Valentino!
