This outfit is called - I wanted to wear things I haven't worn in a while. All these pieces haven't been getting much love lately. This is partly because I haven't been going anywhere and because I wore some of them a LOT when I first got them so I end up passing by them. When it comes to the Ancient Greek Sandals that's because I have 10 pairs....whoops! The only piece I'm still unsure of is the shorts. They just seem a little too big, especially in photos. But they're comfy and keep me cool on hot days so I keep them around.

On our second day we took a day trip to Pompeii. It was quite the journey getting there. Our train from Rome to Naples was fine, but then it was time to take the metro to Pompeii. There was supposed to be a train 10 minutes after we arrived but we stood on a hot, full platform for an HOUR before the right train came. It was insanity. That meant we got a bit of a later start than we wanted (we got up at 6:30am hoping to get to Pompeii a little after 9 but that didn't happen.)

We still made it to all the places we wanted to see and made it to our train back to Rome a couple hours before it was set to leave. Then THAT train was delayed by an hour so we got back to Rome quite late and had dinner around 11pm. But when in Rome, right? Funnily enough, this was one of Christian's favorite meals and we just happened upon the spot since it was close to our airbnb. I'll share where we ate in the guide next week!

A quick post for a look I wore to my Grandma's last weekend. I've worn this shirt a few times this year but hadn't taken outfit photos in it yet. Whoops! I seem to be doing that a lot lately this year.  OH well, at least it's not something new. It's been in my closet for about 5 years now, I think. I got it for $10 in a special sale at Coco's on the Green when one of their locations was closing.

My Dad took these for me super quick and I didn't check them because he usually takes perfect pictures. (He was my photographer before the fiancé came along.) I didn't want to re-shoot by the time I realized they were blurry, so enjoy my laziness...WHOOPS

This is an exercise in how to wear red and green without looking like Christmas exploded on you. It helps that it's Summer so the pieces are skimpier. But making one of the pieces a print with other colors helps to remove Christmas from the equation.

I love going through my work outfit archives to rewear looks. This is a particular favorite. I love the cardigan and top together. This look has definitely been repeated before but I don't think the repeat has ever made the blog.

The Original: 
Day 3 in Paris was all about Disney! Many of my friends back home were confused as to why I would go all the way to France and go to Disney. My response: RATATOUILLE!!!We got up bright and early to take the train and stayed until after the fireworks display, which was amazing!  We only went on a handful of rides: Pirates of the Caribbean, It's a Small World, Crush's Coaster and of course Ratatouille! We also went through Alice's Curious Labyrinth.

And some photos of Disney. We had lunch at Pizza Planet, SO good. I was a little too excited about it for my age, but what can I say, I'm a Disney girl forever! I went up for fourths, so tasty!

Another concert outfit today! I was on a roll last week. This is what I wore to go see Steely Dan with my parents, sister and some other relatives. We're SUPER cool, ha ha. (The title of the post is one of their songs.)  How convenient is it that the yarn details on this sweater match this top perfectly?! I was at a loss for what to wear on top of this tank until I remembered that. It might be a bit of a weird color combo, but I went with it!

Here's an outfit from a over the weekend to see Maleficent with my sister and her boyfriend. I probably should have worn back, purple or green to match the Disney version, but whatevs.  If you haven't seen it and are thinking about it, definitely do! I rarely go to the theatres to see movies and this was totally worth it.  It was a hot day, but since we were going to be in a chilly theatre I wore a hoodie.

Layla wanted to get in on the fun for photos, so enjoy some photobombs.

This Saturday was surprisingly Springy, although still chilly at times.  I took the opportunity to wear my new tank top (by Mexx) that I got for $10 at Coco's of Madison. I also wore my new watch (from Rue La La) and fair trade bracelets. Too bad the weather is supposed to turn today, the forecast says snow....NO!  I can't wait until Summer so I can wear this top without a sweater!

I wore this to go to Target with my sister and then to spend the rest of the day lounging at my parent's house.  I was a bad girl and bought a crazy purple/floral windbreaker and reversible jeans. We also watched The Hobbit before bed! Woo! I do love Peter Jackson...if someone else had made the movie(s) it wouldn't be even 25% as good.  Perfection.
