{street style} rome, italy


Oh, Roma...the capital city of Italy & home to beautiful buildings, rich history, luscious cappuccinos and stunningly gorgeous people.  Italians are always dressed impeccably well whether taking a stroll, grabbing a gelato or dropping their kids off at school.  They are always stylish.  Last Winter,  I went with my girlfriends and my mom for a whirlwind long weekend in Rome.   What a dreamy city!  (One of the many perks to living on this side of the world is the quick & easy access to Europe!) 

As I was looking through old photos this weekend, I found a few paparazzi-style pictures I had taken during the trip.  At the time I didn't have this blog, but I wanted to chronicle the style of the Romans in hopes of one day sharing it. 

So, here we go...my shots of the glamorous people of Rome (and a few shots of the city.)

Happy Monday lovelies!
Tell me, what other cities do you simply love?
Which ones have the best style?

Europeans are so much more stylish than most Americans! I love Rome but was also impressed with the casual elegance of the French in Nice.

I couldn't agree more, Candy! I love French style as well. I've never been to Nice, but Paris was stunning!
