I can’t believe the time has come to say goodbye to Italy and the feeling is certainly bittersweet. Rome, you’ve given us two whirlwind years and a lifetime of memories. It hasn’t always been easy living here, but I wouldn’t trade this experience or the wonderful people I’ve met along the way for the world. To commemorate our time, I’m recapping some of the beautiful places in Italy we’ve been fortunate to visit over the last few years (you can click on the name of each place to view the full post!)

    What an amazing experience you’ve had! I have a quick question for you. You have inspired me to purchase a fedora. Can you tell me about hat etiquette for the fedora? When can it be left on and when should it be removed?
    Thanks and best wishes on your next adventure,

    What a beautiful adventure you’ve had there – and quite a fashionable one too! I’m sure it’s so hard to say good-bye, as I can imagine it would be. Cherish your memories of the time you’ve both spent there, and know that you’ll be back one day! Can’t wait to see the sights of Jordan, and the fashion too 🙂 Have a great weekend, my sweet friend!
