VATICAN CITY & SUMMER PLAYSUIT

August 25, 2016

Second post about my trip to Rome! I hope you guys are enjoying them. I try to mix it up a bit when I’m on holiday, especially a short one like this, and not worry about getting the best outfit shot. Maybe not the best attitude for a style blogger but I prioritize the experience above everything else. For this trip I was thankful that I threw in this little number  into my suitcase. I think everyone should have a cute go-to Summer playsuit in their wardrobe. It’s perfect for any time of the day, you look put together instantly & you can easily dress it up or down. In my case I dressed it down for some sightseeing during the day.

When you visit Rome, you can’t skip over visiting the St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican city. Even if you’re not a religious person, you should visit it once in your life. Especially when you take the route via Piazza Popolo and walk alongside the Tiber down to the via della Conciliazione. It’s the best way to visit it plus you’ll walk right by Castel Sant’Angelo & Ponte Sant’Angelo.

When you visit the St. Peter’s Basilica you should know, even though it’s a pretty obvious rule, that there is a certain dress code you need to abide by. This includes no bare shoulders or knees. If you do show up with bare shoulders or knees you will be denied exit. Because I already knew this I brought my Cheap Monday maxi dress & a blouse to cover up {I did take shots of this outfit but they didn’t turn out as I wanted them to}.

The day after we went to the Vatican museum which is where I wore my Summer playsuit in this post to. To enter the Sistine Chapel you also can’t have bare shoulders or knees but we actually got in anyway. A tip to save you money: buy your ticket for the museum online. There will be men at the front of the line trying to sell you overpriced tickets you don’t need and shower you with compliments that you also don’t need. We ended up buying our tickets via the Vatican museum website while being in Rome but it may be better to do it upfront.

Even though my go-to color will always be black, even in Summer, I also like to mix it up with lighter colors. Especially when the weather gets hot like it did when we were in Rome. Surprisingly I got used to the weather fairly quickly. Normally I get in a mood and don’t do well with weather that’s above 30 degrees. Not this time! I think it’s because I packed all the right items for this trip. This Summer playsuit is one of my favorite Summer pieces I have hanging in my wardrobe. It has the Summer vibe I want, chic but still cute, and I can easily combine it with other favorites from my closet.
