Today's Everyday Fashion: Buongiorno from Rome

Loving the train

I didn't plan this

Next stop on our vacation: Rome! We took a train from Milan to Rome, which proved to be not only incredibly convenient (train travel > air travel, in my book) but also kind of fun. When I packed for this trip, I had most of my outfits planned head-to-toe. But for this day, I wound up improvising. My train outfit was a result of me simply being in the mood to wear jeans and my most comfy shoes (I alternated the 3 pairs of shoes I brought as much as possible to keep any one pair from rubbing too much). After we arrived in (ridiculously hot!) Rome, I faced another conundrum as I really didn't pack enough warm-weather outfits. I had previously put together this outfit below, so I simply opted to remove the blazer and just wear a t-shirt. It was hot enough for shorts or a skirt, and I prefer it with a blazer, but sometimes you just have to go with what you have. :-) We grabbed dinner near the Colosseum and I did my usual people watching to see what people were wearing. Rome really seemed to be full of mostly tourists though, with a very casual summer style, much like you would see in Orlando (another hot, touristy town). More on Rome tomorrow, but this stop of the trip was 100% about the history for me! It was also my absolute favorite city so stay tuned!
