black jumpsuit with white blazer, black and white outfit with Chanel Jumbo black caviar bag, how to wear a blazer over jumpsuitMy husband and I celebrated our three-year wedding anniversary on Saturday evening with a secret dinner he planned for us. All I knew was that the restaurant was located about 40 minutes south of Rome, so as we were driving and the road started winding along a hill, I was surprised to look out of the window and see this beautiful lake! We had arrived at Castel Gandolfo, which is technically considered to be part of Rome, but far enough away for the scenery to look completely different. On our walk from the parking lot to the restaurant, we stopped at a hotel with an amazing view of the lake to take photos. (I thought I should mention the format of this post is slightly different because I listed my outfit details in the middle and saved the second half to share photos from our dinner).Clinique Matte Magenta pink lipstick, H&M white tuxedo blazer, black jumpsuit with wide belt, black jumpsuit with Chanel bag outfitOne piece I can always rely on for just about any occasion, whether formal or casual, is a black jumpsuit. It’s easy to make it look different each time just by changing how I accessorize, and this time I added my white blazer for a fresh look.

We had the entire cellar to ourselves, which was pretty amazing. wine bottles Ristorante Pagnanelli, famous restaurants where celebrities dine in Italy, fine dining near Rome ItalyThe cellar contains over 35,000 bottles of wine, some of which have been autographed by visiting celebrities over the years: Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Bill Gates, and Keanu Reeves, just to name a few (the owners wrote each name underneath the signatures, hence the misspelling for J.T.–whoops!)

We already can’t wait to go back again, and I highly recommend making a trip here if you’re ever in the Rome area.
