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.

When In Rome

T Shirt Zara, Skirt Anthropologie (on sale!), Sandals Madewell (on sale!), Purse Miu Miu, Sunglasses Dior

After Florence, Thomas and I took a train to Rome. I loved using the train systems instead of driving in Italy.  They were really quick and easy to use and I would definitely recommend  them if you are planning a trip to Italy. I love this Anthropologie skirt (last seen here). It’s so comfy and perfect for traveling. These pictures were taken after we checked into our hotel and started exploring Rome!

P.S. Check out the interview I did was the sweet Shannon from GBO Fashion.

Last Night In Florence

Dress Anthropologie, Wedges ShoeMint

For our last night in Florence, Thomas and I went to a delicious restaurant called Za-Za, recommended by our tour guide. One thing that took some getting used to in Italy was eating later. We are so used to eating dinner around 6pm, but in Italy most people don’t head out to dinner until a least 8 or 8:30.  While this was strange at first, we quickly became accustomed to the time change and soon loved our new ritual of heading to early cocktails and relaxing  before dinner.
