{outfit} A Romper in Rome

Starting my honeymoon posts a couple days later than planned because the photographer (aka my husband, haha) has had a rough back to work week and hasn't had time to edit photos. We're starting at the beginning of the trip - ROME!

I wore this on our first full day in The Eternal City where we walked a whopping 11.7 miles. I don't think our feet ever fully recovered. We started early in the morning at the Colosseum where we were pretty much alone for the first 10 minutes, which was amazing! Then we saw most of the other big sites of the city (we're overachievers) throughout the day. I'll be going more into our itinerary in a travel guide after the outfit photos!

This romper is always perfect for hot weather, I'm covered up but it's still nice and breezy thanks to the cutout in the back.  My blue Marc Jacobs bag is the perfect travel purse because it's not too big yet it can fit everything I need (including a water bottle! except that does stick out a bit.) It got quite the workout on this trip so it will get a much needed break for a while.

Also, as a side note, this is the first post at the start of a partnership with Shopbop! I'll be receiving gift cards in exchange for including them in posts from time to time. Super excited as I've been a Shopbop fan for years - bought one of my first real designer purses (my purple Marc Jacobs) there!

Romper: Greylin via Gilt (shop rompers), Sandals: Ancient Greek Sandals 'Athena' (shop Ancient Greek Sandals),  Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs 'Natural Selection Mini Messenger Bag' (shop more Marc Jacobs bags), Sunglasses: Chanel

  4. That is a lovely romper and yes perfect for super hot days. 11 miles wow. Though I know how you feel. During FW in Paris I was on my feet all day for 7 days by the end I swore I had nerve damage in my feet lol.
