Camel & Stripes at Piazza di Spagna

By Monday, January 16, 2017 10

fashion blogger Meagan Brandon wearing Max Mara Manuela camel coat with striped turtleneck and black jeans, Saint Laurent red High School bagHappy 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. Since it was a slow day, my husband and I decided to explore a little bit and take some photos—the incredible views definitely made it worthwhile. They actually hold fashion shows here every summer (Valentino had their fall/winter show there the summer before last), and the steps are often used as a runway. Can you even imagine having to gracefully walk all those stairs in high heels?!Meagan Brandon fashion blogger shows how to layer camel coat with vest, striped shirt and black jeansBlack and white stripes with camel and a pop of red has always been one of my favorite winter combinations. I hadn’t planned on wearing my camel coat for this shoot, but it was really cold in the shade—and I actually ended up liking the look of the coordinating camel layers. Piazza di Spagna Rome Italy, shops on Via dei Condotti Rome ItalyFrom the top of the Spanish steps you have the best view of Rome’s shopping mecca and famous street of couture fashion: Via dei Condotti. Here you’ll find basically any luxury designer you can imagine (I mean, any street flanked by Dior and Prada has to be a good one, right?!) I’ve made quite a few trips down here over the past few years and will definitely miss it when we move!Spanish Steps Piazza di Spagna Rome ItalyAt the top of the Spanish Steps is the Trinità dei Monti church, which is surrounded by another mini piazza.fashion blogger wearing Max Mara camel coat with vest, striped turtleneck and red Saint Laurent handbag, how to layer with a camel coat for winterhow to wear a camel vest, camel vest with black and white striped shirt and Gucci belt outfitMax Mara Manuela camel coat with striped shirt and black jeans, camel coat outfit with striped shirt and red handbagPiazza di spagna fashion blogger Rome Italy, where to designer shop in Rome Italy Via dei CondottiThank you so much for visiting and I hope your week is off to a great start!

    Gorgeous look! I can understand not visiting a place nearby when it’s so touristy. Even though I live outside of NYC – it’s not such a draw because of the traffic and the crowds.

    Love this look – camel on camel looks great! Excited to hear of your adventures when you move!
