ROMAN HOLIDAY



  


 



Happy Tuesday, loves! Hope you are having a great week. Have you finished purchasing all your Xmas gifts yet? I'm pretty much done with holiday gift shopping for family and friends and cannot wait for Xmas.

Today's outfit is the last outfit from my trip to Europe. Yes, my last stop was in Rome, Italy. When I was little, I watched the film starring Audrey Hepburn, Roman Holiday. Ever since then, Rome has always been on my list of places to visit. In Rome, I saw so many sites: the Trevi Fountain, the Colosseum, the Spanish Steps and the mouth of truth etc. I was so excited each time I visited a site from the movie and the scenes just replayed again in my mind. I’m a sap for the love story in Roman Holiday. And of course the cute little Vespa just added to my affection for the movie. Because of the film, I imagined Rome as an incredibly romantic city and it lived up to my expectations. I was able to go to some restaurants and meet a number of locals who were sweet and always helpful. The spaghetti alla carbonara, gelato and tiramisu were my favorites and I could eat them on repeat every day. The highlights of the trip for me, though, were seeing the San Gennaro collection of gems and jewelry from Naples and my visit to the Vatican where I finally saw the Creation of Adam inside the Sistine Chapel. Getting the chance to see all these sites meant so much to me. Rome is just an amazing city full of history, culture and legacy. Words cannot describe everything that I saw. Hopefully, you guys saw some pictures on my Instagram, but really the pictures cannot do it justice.

As for shopping, I really don’t think the prices are cheaper over there, but I was able to purchase some Italian brands at pretty reasonable prices. I can’t wait to show you guys these goodies over my next few blog posts :)

The cashmere sweater I wore is from QUINN NYC. I really love this sweater because it’s so soft, warm and comfy. The shape is also nice as well. It's a cute sweater with cable details. I love sweaters that are good quality and keep you warm the entire winter. I paired it with a 7 For All Mankind pair of skinny shimmer jeans. The boots are also chic and comfortable to walk around the city in especially when you’re traveling. Have a great Tuesday and enjoying the snow here in New York city:) XOXO
