Rome Outfit: Floral Midi Skirt.

     Here is the much overdue start to sharing blog posts about my trip to Italy that my mom and I took in March! I'll be mixing up my Italy travel guide posts with the outfit posts that we shot while there, and kicking everything off today with this pretty floral midi skirt outfit from Rome. Hopefully it will warm up in Vermont soon so I can re-wear this!

     As a lover of all things floral, this is a print that I wear year round, but the arrival of spring makes me even more excited to break favorite floral print items out of my closet and also purchase some new ones! I wanted to have a couple of semi-dressy options for the trip in case we went to any nice dinners or had any other occasions to dress up on the trip (plus- who doesn't want to wear dressy and extra girly outfits in EUROPE?!), but whatever I packed had to be something that was lightweight and packed well. This floral midi skirt came to my rescue! This skirt specifically was actually an amazing bargain find from Ross in Charlotte right before the trip- it was under $20, and made of a soft fabric that didn't wrinkle at all, so it was perfect to pack in my checked luggage. Even though my skirt specifically isn't online, this one is almost identical and at a similar affordable price point! 


     These pictures were taken in Rome's Ludovisi neighborhood, which was within walking distance from our hotel. Ludovisi is right by the famous Villa Borghese park area, which is a gorgeous park filled with lovely public outdoor areas, as well as museums (think a really nice European version of Central Park!). My mom and visited Villa Borghese park almost everyday of our time in Rome, and we would often take different routes back to our hotel, and sometimes we would walk through Ludovisi. The buildings and architecture are STUNNING in all of Rome- but I thought this neighborhood was very charming, and made the perfect backdrop for this outfit and these photos. Can you spy some of the cute little European cars parked behind me in some of the photos too? 


     I hope that you enjoyed the first post about my trip- sorry again for the delay in starting these post series on the blog!! Normally I love blogging about my trips right after they happen, but as I've said in some other posts in the past few weeks- being in a wedding party and then moving across the country for a new job right after an international trip as big as this one was ended up being a lot crazier than I anticipated, so I am now playing catch up on the blog! 😉


    Here are some other great floral midi skirt options at various price points:






     Hope that you're having a great week and thanks for reading as always!



     God Bless,
