Black Coat & Boyfriend Jeans

By Friday, January 20, 2017 4

TGIF! You guys---we are leaving Rome in exactly ONE WEEK. I seriously can't believe this day is almost here; it feels like such a short time ago that we were packing up our home in Virginia to move overseas. I've been trying to get as organized as possible before the movers arrive on Monday morning: I ...

How to Reinvent Your Winter Coat Using Accessories and Layers

By Wednesday, January 18, 2017 6

How many of you have a closet full of coats---and how many of them do you actually wear on a regular basis? If you're like me, I'm willing to bet you have a few favorites! The three coats I wear most often are my camel, gray and black styles, all of which you've seen many ...

Camel & Stripes at Piazza di Spagna

By Monday, January 16, 2017 10

Happy Monday, everyone, and I hope you all enjoyed the weekend! On Saturday I did something I never have since moving to Rome: walked the Spanish Steps in Piazza di Spagna. I can't believe I'm admitting this, but they're usually way too crowded and pick-pocketing can be bad there, so I just avoid it entirely. ...

All Black Winter Outfit

By Friday, January 13, 2017 10

TGIF! I'm so happy Friday is here and the fact that it's a three-day weekend makes it even better. We move from Rome exactly two weeks from today and I'm feeling all kinds of emotions lately. I'm happy about going home, sad to leave Italy, and both anxious/excited about our next chapter in Amman, Jordan. There's so much ...

January Dressing: Panama Hat, Vintage Cape & Over-the-Knee Boots

By Wednesday, January 11, 2017 10

How many of you agree that January always seems to feel like the doldrums of fashion? Now that fall and the holidays are over, I find myself biding time until I can try the latest spring arrivals popping up in stores. In those months between the holidays and spring, many of us are also shopping our own ...

Roman Views: Gray Coat, Camel Scarf & Over-the-Knee Boots

By Monday, January 9, 2017 17

Ciao, everyone, and I hope all of you had a wonderful weekend! Ours was pretty low-key because it was so cold in Rome that we chose to hide in our warm apartment for most of it. Riding on the scooter in temperatures this low is miserable to say the least, so when we went out to take blog photos, it ...

Cozy Off the Shoulder Top for Winter

By Friday, January 6, 2017 11

Happy Friday! My husband and I have an extra day off because Epiphany is observed as a national holiday in Italy. Today is also known as 'La Befana' for Italian children, which stems from a legend similar to our version of Santa Claus (read more about it on this post!) My brother flew out yesterday ...

Camel Coat & Cropped Denim

By Wednesday, January 4, 2017 11

Ciao, everyone! My brother has been here with us since Saturday and it's been great spending time together while showing him around Rome. It's hard to believe we haven't seen each other since our move here two years ago---and since he lives in California, it's also difficult to call each other very often with the 9-hour time ...
