This September, we have returned for a second time to my beloved Rome, the true city of my heart!

Even before I started working on ships and travelling all over the world, even as a little girl, all I dreamed of was seeing Rome as I used to obsessively read books and watch movies about the Roman Empire and was in awe, and even though I have been lucky enough to be able to travel to amazing, remote, once in a life time places, I never actually got to Rome!

Last year hubby surprised me with a trip to Rome and it was truly beyond my expectations! And I never thought we’d be able to return for years to come, as it is quite expensive, but hubby got promoted this year and he treated us to another trip to Rome, this time VIP style! 🙂

I’ll share more about that in future posts, just wanted to say this little street with a long row of charming little stalls is just off San Angelo Castle and Bridge and it couldn’t get more romantic than this! 🙂

But this post is about this amazing Autumn dress from Zara! 🙂

The dress is light weight, with long slits down both legs, ruffled sleeves and the most stunning Autumn colours! Weather was amazing in Rome so didn’t need anything to go with it, but I definitely look forward to layering an Autumn outfit around this dress, maybe my cozy mustard chenille Zara cardigan, and Aldo Chelsea Boots! 🙂

Yeah, gelato was on the menu non stop and I’m not even sorry! lol

The bag is from Bershka, now sold out, but similar here, embellished by yours truly with homemade pom poms :), little obsession of mine, I just cannot have enough pom poms! lol

The trainers, which were the only footwear that could withstand the miles and miles of walking we’ve done, are from Lacoste at Next, now sold out, but similar here!

I have two more outfit posts from Rome and a post about the hotel and my recommendations on things to do or places to go while in Rome, so don’t forget to come back! 🙂

Until we meet again,

All my love,
