true life: "traveling" as a blogger

the fact that i get to travel as a part of my job will forever be surreal to me. i get the opportunities to experience incredible sights and places because of my blogging and photography that i otherwise would not have seen - and many times, i have my best friends right by my side. but more often than not, followers just see the final photo that many times takes hours and hours of preparation and post production giving the illusion that traveling as a blogger is glamorous. and don’t get me wrong, i would not be doing this if i didn’t love it 110% but i think people often forget that this is a job and when i’m traveling, i am working. i will say i too sometimes will scroll through instagram and come across the perfect photo with the best lighting, location, and corresponding outfit that sometimes i assume it was all by coincidence. granted sometimes that does happen, but more often than not, photos and posts have so much more care and attention involved in them that the final image will never be able to show. with that in mind, i wanted to go a little more in-depth and share what went into this shoot and the crazy packed day that followed.

dress: gal meets glam collection

line it up

as evident from my last post, light linen dresses are my go-to pieces for this season. and when i was packing for my trip to rome, i realized i needed a one more dress that i could just throw on without thinking! i thankfully found this dress that is under $100 that was so comfy i nearly bought it in the other color too! i threw on my favorite prada hat and i was ready to eat all of the pasta my stomach could allow!

rome-ing around

whenever i go to a city, especially as a blogger, it's inevitable that i have to hit up the big ticket stops (like here and here) but there is nothing i love more than just exploring some of the main touristy areas at our own leisure. ashley and i started off our morning around the ruins around palatine hill and while we may have gotten there relatively early at 9am, compared to our other early morning wake up calls, this was a welcomed change!

dress: fendi (love the red here and budget friendly version here and here)
shoes: fendi (love the black version too)
hat: prada (similar here and here)
bag: serpui marie (similar here)
earrings: tory burch (old)
bracelets: cartier
sunglasses: gucci
