Ciao!


Strolling around Trastevere

Scarf: Emilio Pucci • Sweater: Alexa Chung for Madewell
Pants: J.crew • Flats: Marais USA

I didn't know what to expect before spending six nights in Rome. I had a foggy idea of how things would be, aware of the fact I'd be surrounded by people speaking Italian and be eating delicious pasta and gelato. Though this was true, so much more came out of my stay. The city took my breath away. Fascinating architecture consisted of ancient ruins, grand villas, and modern buildings. I was constantly surrounded by intriguing textures, whether it was a simple cobblestone street or a detailed carving in a renaissance statue. My family stayed in a quaint bed and breakfast in an area called Trastevere. We accomplished so much in our trip, visiting all the incredible landmarks and squeezing in some time to shop. Below are some of the highlights of the trip!

The astounding reflection of a bridge over the Tiber river.


Mind-blowing details from marble statues in the Vatican.
(I'd love a pair of those sandals!)

Light shining through the hole in the dome of the Pantheon, acting as a sun dial, displaying the time of day.

The colossal magnificence of the Colosseum.

A spectacular view of the city.
