Zara floral print top, LOFT distressed denim shorts, Valentino Rockstud lace up white gladiator sandalsMost of you know the saying, ‘April showers bring May flowers’, right? That may be true for some places, but in Rome, most of the rain seems to happen in February and March, while April has plenty of blue skies and sunshine. It’s been in the high 70s all week, which I would seriously be happy with for the rest of the summer. When the weather warms up, there truly isn’t much that can beat a ride on the Vespa to get gelato, which is exactly what we did last Sunday.

The rest of this outfit is ladylike as well, but boyfriend shorts give it more of a casual vibe.fashion blogger Rome Italy, floral print top with distressed denim shorts, Brahmin mint la scala handbagBrahmin mint la scala handbag, Zara floral print blouse, LOFT girlfriend relaxed denim shorts, Valentino Rockstud gladiator sandals outfitI want to follow up on this self tanner I mentioned on the blog awhile back: I used it last week and it definitely gave me some natural color in just a few days. After a liberal application of this bronzing powder on top, I felt much better about baring my legs for the first time. The only thing I would be careful of is that it can transfer a bit onto clothes, even though the customer reviews say it doesn’t. After we got off the scooter, I noticed some of it had rubbed off on my husband’s shorts from me sitting behind him–whoops! But with a little stain remover, it washed right out in the laundry, so it’s definitely worth using anyway!Zara botanical floral print top, LOFT girlfriend distressed denim shorts, Brahmin mint la scala Ophelia bagZara floral print blouse, denim shorts and lace up sandals, Valentino Rockstud white gladiator sandals, Brahmin mint handbag, Italian fashion bloggerDo any of you have fun plans for the weekend? We are heading to Naples on Sunday and will be there for about a week, so look for some posts from there on the blog next week. I think I’m most excited about having Neapolitan pizza again more than anything else during the trip, ha! Have a wonderful weekend and thank you so much for reading!

    Such a lovely look. I am “not” a floral blouse person but I have the same one from a few seasons ago. The print is very pretty. I never thought of pairing it the way you have done in these photos. Thank you for the inspiration. I love your blog. Being that you are living in Rome I can live a little vicariously through your adventures!
