make a wish

after making my return to italy for the second time in six weeks, i was so excited to get to explore rome this time around! while this may not have been my first trip to rome (i spent thanksgiving here when i was studying abroad in paris!), it was my first trip to the city as a blogger...two totally different experiences! basically what it means to travel as a blogger is the leisurely mornings are replaced with 4am alarms to get to the most popular tourist destinations before some people even come home from their evening. 

when ashley and i were planing our itinerary for rome, we knew we wanted to get the trevi fountain over and done with simply because it was going to be the most chaotic of the locations. so what time did we get here? well the sun rose at about 5:30am that morning and we walked up to the fountain at 5:20...and even then, there were about 15-20 people already there! but anything is better than trying to take a photo at any other time of the day with one million of your closest friends haha!

for this location i decided to wear one of the pieces that didn't quite arrive in time for my trip to positano so i needed to make it work for rome! the side slits on this dress helped to keep me cool for the morning but i knew i wouldn't have lasted much longer in the heat with the long sleeves. don't worry though, i will definitely be re-wearing it in the hamptons this summer!

stay tuned for more posts of my rome adventures!
