If you follow me on Instagram then you know I have been on a mini Europe trip with my mother who was visiting from South Africa. One of the cities I most wanted to show her was Rome! The last time I visited Rome was with my husband back in 2014 to celebrate our fifth wedding anniversary, so it is kind of a special place for me 😊
We only had three nights in Rome, so it was impossible to see everything. However, one of the major attractions that I really wanted my mother to visit was the Colosseum – where Paola Aylen Ledderucci took these photos of me.
For this trip, I took a few basic pieces such as these Zara trousers (from a few seasons ago) that were easy to pair with t-shirts and pullovers.
Since we were only travelling with hand luggage for the whole trip, I was limited by how many bags I could carry. In the end, I decided to go with my Chanel square mini. The Chanel square mini fits all my essentials, is an excellent crossbody bag when I want to be handsfree and because it is caviar leather I did not have to worry about the possible damage that rain could cause (it rained on two afternoons while we were there).
Overall Rome was lovely. My mother was very impressed by the beautiful architecture and the many historical sites. We will definitely be returning sometime in the future!
