I am so excited because this weekend I am visiting Rome, I have never been there so I am head over heels happy!

Leaving for just few days is always challenging because packing is never easy to me…
I must carefully prepare my luggage because:
1 – I want to pack smart! (Yes I am a dreamer, I keep on following the dream to make the perfect luggage)
2 – I am going to spend all the time touristing around Rome so it makes no sense to have different dresses for the morning, the afternoon and the night
3 – I want to bring pieces easily switchable from daywear to eveningwear only adding few other elements

It’s June so the weather is warm enough to bring just a scarf and a thin jacket (…this helps a lot!). I will bring my cheetah scarf and my floral jacket so I can also play with mismatched prints – yes to basics, but with style!
I usually wear plain colored pieces so printed accents are the real deal here because they give the mood, define and add that personal touch that makes everything unique.
Here’s what I am packing:
* Longchamp bag (it can be folded, and when unfolded it’s so big & useful)
* Lacoste hat (my favorite and stylish protection from the sun, I love hats!)
* Polaroid sunglasses (Polarized sunglasses are the best invention of mankind)
* Gap dress (cotton is the best because it is fresh. This dress also has pockets – so useful!)
* Zara ballerinas
* H&M floral jacker & cheetah scarf (both very thin, just in the case of some chilly weather)
* Nikon P7000 (a must have, of course!)

  • […] I have had the best of my time spending some days in Rome some weeks ago! I loved to plan the places I absolutely wanted to see and discovering they were incredibly better than how I thought they were. Rome is such an amazing place, it’s so worth a visit! I also must confess that I have been pretty lucky because two dear friends of mine live there so they showed the city and its secrets in a way that no book guide could ever do! Rome is also known for having a beautiful weather and it didn’t disappoint: it was sunny and hot, making me enjoy everything I packed especially comfy and fresh dresses. […]
