Hi everyone and I hope your week has gotten off to a good start! Although it still wasn’t too warm here in Rome over the weekend, we finally saw some sunshine, which was much needed! My husband and I had a pretty low-key couple of days doing our usual Roman activities of zipping around on the Vespa, grabbing gelato, and exploring the city.
Romantic ruffle sleeves and the daintiest floral print easily make this H&M blouse the prettiest I’ve purchased this spring. I’ve been inspired to wear a lot of retro-style outfits lately, and it begged to be worn with flare jeans and my vintage saddle bag. Speaking of flares, these 7FAM jeans are one of my favorite pairs–the fit is amazing and makes your legs look so long, especially with a pair of platforms (definitely helpful if you’re on the shorter side like me!) Believe it or not, I found the exact same style in a non-distressed wash for less than $50 and linked it in my outfit details below–at that price, they definitely won’t be in stock for long, so don’t hesitate if you want to snag a pair for yourself! I appreciate how easily this blouse can be dressed up or down–I’m imagining it restyled with white shorts and lace-up sandals once the weather gets warmer.While we were out on Saturday, we dropped by a new restaurant for dinner: Hopside, a burger joint which offers various handmade patties and craft beers. Finding a (good) hamburger around here is not an easy task, and even though it’s still not quite the same as what we’d get back home, it’s great to know where we can get a few when our American craving strikes–and a small 4 oz. burger is only €5! I found the recommendation from my blogger friend Natalie, who writes An American in Rome–check out her site if you’re planning a trip here or just love reading about Italy because she has tons of great tips!
