Outfit: Stripes and Dots

Modern technology can be such a blessing.... hahaha. Because we followed the weather reports in Rome closely, we knew the first day was going to be clouded. So I took some tops with sleeves with me to cover those 'colder' moments. I was thrilled to wear this striped Mango top with my dotted fifties skirt. It kind of reminded me of the outfit Carrie wore when she traveled to Paris (in the final episodes of SATC.)
I was so happy that I decided to wear some headgear as well. Raindrops were falling on my head throughout the day, so I would have looked like a drowned dog if I didn't wear this lovely summer hat. We visited the Pantheon, the Trevi fountains, several churches and the Spanish steps. Such beauty.... Such beauty indeed....

Gotta love this view from the apartment!
Hat: H&M 
Top: Mango

  1. Love your skirt! Rome is so beautiful!

  2. Fantastic pairing of stripes and polka dots! I swear, I was just thinking this morning that I need more stripped tops in my summer wardrobe - clearly this is a sign from the fashion gods. :)

    Have an awesome weekend, dear gal!

  3. Hey,
    beautiful post. I love the combination.

  4. Rome is inderdaad super mooi! En je outfit ook! Ik hou van de combinatie streepjes en stippen. En ik heb ook een soort voorliefde ontwikkeld voor dat model rok, haha! Prachtig die foto in het raam trouwens :)


  5. I would want to stay at the window and look out all day:) Lovely pictures.

  6. Wow it looks so pretty there! You've gotten the wanderlustkind in me stamping it's feet. Love love love the skirt! The large polka dots are harder to find, and oh-so-striking. Happy travels dear, look forward to seeing more photos!

  7. Hope you enjoyed the sightseeing in Rome, you certainly had the perfect outfit for it - really do love the hat, and you're right that it does have a bit of a 'Carrie' feel to it too, especially as she was in a rooftop apartment too!

    I've just bought a striped cardigan, I might have to find some polkadots to team it with.
