Signature Look Shopping Process
Detail from Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel
For example, I was reminded in conversation that pick-pocketing really *is* a problem for tourists in Rome. Rather than wear a romper on Day 1 as originally planned, I"ll need to wear shorts, so I can tuck my money belt inside.
Sometimes, too, the items I originally searched for are sold out. I take it as good fortune. Whatever turns up, it's usually better -- and my original items are usually on sale, so I can afford an upgrade!
For more on this, check out my post Roman Holiday.
Step Two: Shop! Once you know what looks you want, you can shop happily within your budget.
All of these pieces below are shoppable using the thumbnail links and available in the EU and US. NB: the bag is available via Anthro, but the link here is to Nordstrom.
DAILYOUTFIT'S JUNE LOOK: ROMAN HOLIDAY
COLOR STORY: Navy, White, Yellow, Rose
The color meanings are dependability, new beginnings, happiness, love and fun -- perfect for a family holiday!
USE YOUR WORDS: Soft, lightweight fabrics in easy-breezy styling = vacation
The look and feel of these outfits is pretty, easy & practical, fitting my vacation mindset.
DAY 1: HOP-ON/HOP-OFF & COLISEUM:
DAY 3: POMPEII:
Notes on the outfit: Patterned to cover stains like the jumpsuit, the length allows me to curl up on the bus without being too revealing.
DAY 5: VATICAN:
Notes on the outfit: The lace makes this top super lightweight AND pretty. Shoulders covered, as the rules dictate! The high-low hem of the skirt keeps this look breezy, but appropriate.
DAY 2&4: OFF: We probably be poolside, do bath, room service & early to bed with the kids. I'll pack a dress and an extra tee for the shorts, in case we change our minds.
I always find it's more enjoyable with kids to buffer the sightseeing with a bit of relaxation and time to play. After all, we're on vacation!
Go ahead and shop these looks or use them as inspiration as they befit your own travel plans!
