LBD

Dress Miu Miu (scored on sale at Net-A-Porter), Heels J.Crew, Bag Miu Miu, Lipstick Jane Iredale

When Net-A-Porter had their sale back in June, I wouldn’t let myself get anything until it reached the “final sale”of up to 70% off.I had been eyeing this dress (it has a lace bow!) but of  course the price was way out of my budget and it was sold out in my size. On the last few days on the sale, I re-checked just for fun and found it back in stock in my size and with a significant price drop. This is a dress that I will have for forever and remain my favorite LBD of all time! This night was spent at Hotel De Russie, where we had cocktailsand dinner at their beautiful  restaurant, Le Jardin de Russie.

P.S. After an internship with ShopStyle all summer, I just started a new full-time position with Tart Collections in their marketing department!

Touring Rome

This was a bath tub way back when!

Trevi Fountain!

First Outfit: Dress Anthropologie, Sandals Madewell, Sunglasses Dior, Purse Coach

Second Outfit: Top Zara, Shorts Madewell, Purse Miu Miu, Sandals Madewell, Sunglasses Dior

Our two full days in Rome were spent touring the Vatican, Colosseum, Roman Ruins, Pantheon, Spanish Steps, Villa Borghese, Trevi Fountain and all of the other main attractions in the city. We had guides along the way, which was so helpful in learning and being reminded of the history of each thing we saw. If you are heading to Rome make sure to check out Villa Borghese! It’s the most beautiful park where you can rent bikes, have picnics and take a nap in the shade. After trucking around the city in 100 degree weather, we cooled off in the park and rode bikes around.<

A Night In Rome

Our Hotel’s Rooftop Bar.

View from dinner at SOMO Penthouse

Dress c/o Awear, Purse Coach, Wedges Prada, Lipstick NARS “Heatwave”

For our first night in Rome, Thomas and decided to switch things up and get sushi for dinner at SOMO Penthouse (the rooftop restaurant at The First Hotel in Rome). Not only did they have really good sushi, but the views were amazing!  After walking around for a bit post-dinner, we both started craving pizza and happened to walk by Pizza Ré 2, which looked and smelled amazing. We were both so glad we did because it ended up being our favorite pizza of the trip!

*For those of you visiting Rome, we stayed at Hotel St. George. It was a great hotel that was near a lot of main attractions, but on a quiet street.
