Ours flew by since we were so busy taking blog photos—I wanted to get ahead so we have all of next weekend to relax (big thanks to my sweet husband for being extremely patient). While we were out, we also did some ornament shopping in Piazza Navona. Over the years, it’s become a tradition for us to buy a Christmas ornament in each new city we visit, and when we were decorating the tree this year, we realized we still didn’t have any ornaments from Rome. That’s the thing about moving around—after awhile, it’s easy to forget that it’s only temporary and one day we’ll want something to remember our time here. Our ornament collection has grown significantly since moving to Italy since we’ve been traveling so much!

I used a mix of suede and faux fur to create this holiday look that’s perfect to wear now or even for New Year’s Eve. This gray mini skirt from Express is my new favorite: it’s 100% real suede and currently 50% off (that’s less than $65!), which is such a fabulous deal. Suede skirts never go out of style, so it’s also a great investment piece to consider. As the temperatures drop this winter, I also plan on wearing it with tights and booties or knee-high boots.gray-faux-fur-vest-with-black-turtleneck-brahmin-hudson-satchel-silver-sage-caspian-holiday-outfit-with-fur-vestWhenever I wear monochromatic outfits, I like carrying a statement handbag to give my look a unique touch. This patchwork beauty from Brahmin really pops against black and gray, plus the metallic leather detail is extra festive for the holiday season (see this post for another way I styled it).

This particular one is the Fontana dell’Acqua Felice, also known as the Fountain of Moses.gray-faux-fur-vest-with-black-turtleneck-mini-skirt-and-over-the-knee-boots-express-gray-suede-mini-skirt-brahmin-hudson-satchel-patchworkfontana-dellacqua-felice-rome-italyMay your coffee be strong and your Monday be short—only six more days till Christmas!

      Thank you! It actually wasn’t too bad outside but since it was getting dark, the photos have a blue-ish tint. Maybe that makes me look chilled?!
