For Valentine’s Day Aaron surprised me with a weekend getaway trip to Rome! Rome was the first city I visited in Europe when I was in college. I remember being so blown away by the Colosseum and watching the movie Gladiator before my arrival.
In February and March you definitely still need a jacket in Rome. When exploring and walking around a city for hours, I always try to incorporate a chic yet comfortable style. Hence, why I almost always wear sneakers when walking around for hours.
Since my time was limited to the weekend only in Rome, I wanted to ensure we did the main tourist attractions, and eat as much gelato as we could get our hands on.
For the first day, I wore a cream jacket and a cream top with black jeans and Nike Free shoes. Most of the time I had the jacket draped over my shoulders because it wasn’t extremely cold, but it wasn’t warm either. It was in-between weather.
The second day, was a tad warmer than the first day, I wore a thin light grey turtleneck and black stretchy jeans again. Reusing multiple pieces is key for a weekend getaway, especially if you want to save on space.
This time of the year, I’ve been love wearing neutral colors such as cream, whites and greys.
I’ve listed a few outfit essentials to pack for a weekend getaway:
- Basic clothes, such as this grey turtleneck or white blouse. These pieces can be worn and styled for multiple outfits
- Stretchy skinny jeans – this is essential especially in a country such as Italy or should I say “Eatly.” We literally ate gelato 3 times a day, no regrets!
- Comfortable shoes – I wore my black Nike shoes the entire time, and then switched into heels for dinner.
Don’t forget to pack your portable charger and camera!
