Roma, I love ya

13

 

If someone told me right now that there’s a more beautiful city than Rome, it would be very hard for me to believe it, because even when I’m still far from knowing most of Europe, I think Italy is a place where, as a mexican, you can feel it like home: people is vibrant, food is abundant, there is a love for the good life, you get compliments over the street, they yell, laugh out loud and chat from balcony to balcony, and you may think they’re arguing but they’re actually discussing the soccer game from last night. And that’s not even counting the importance of mothers in every family and kitchen, have I told you the size of the portions are huge? Even if I tried, I couldn’t go through the full meal of antipasto, primo piatti with bread, followed by a secondo piatti and finished with a big tiramisú, all with wine.

Rome has won my heart in only five days and a short series of posts in the blog, starting with the outfits I wore and took with me sharing only one suitcase with my boyfriend. Because when you travel for pleasure, you don’t need to take half of your wardrobe neither a dozen of bags. Remember: the less you carry in your suitcase, the more you can buy in your trip (and that never hurts, like eating a gelato everyday when you’re in Rome).

Si en este momento alguien me dijese que existe una ciudad más hermosa que Roma, no se lo creería, y si bien aún me falta mucho, pero mucho por conocer de Europa, creo que Italia es un lugar en donde como mexicano te puedes sentir como en casa: la gente es vibrante, se come mucho, hacen piropos, gustan de la buena vida, gritan, se ríen en voz alta y charlan de balcón a balcón haciéndote creer que están discutiendo, cuando en realidad están hablando del partido de fútbol de la noche anterior. Sin hablar sobre la importancia que tiene la madre en la familia y en la cocina, ¿les he dicho que se come mucho? Aunque intenté hacer una comida completa, no pude comerme un antipasto, un primo piatti con pan, seguido de un secondo piatti y finalizar con un tiramisú, sin contar el vino.

Roma se ganó mi corazón y una serie corta de posts en el blog, iniciando con los atuendos que utilicé compartiendo la única maleta que llevamos mi novio y yo. Porque cuando se viaja por placer, no necesitas llevarte todo el guardarropa ni el armario completo de bolsos. Recuerda que: mientras menos lleves de equipaje, más podrás comprar en tu viaje (y eso sí nunca, nunca está de más, al igual que comer un gelato todos los días).

  1. Qué suerte mantenerte tan impecable todo el día en una jornada de patear una ciudad. Estás preciosa y estilosa con cada uno de esos looks y las fotos son de revista. Yo empiezo estupenda la jornada de pasear por una nueva ciudad, pero conforme van pasando las horas acabo con la cara llena de brillos, pelos de loca y andares cansados…jajaja. Soy un desastre! :P

    Hi Adriana! Great post! So happy you loved Rome!! I really like that romper, can you tell me what size it is you are wearing? I’d like to order it, but I think it runs in European sizes, so I can’t decide which size to order. Thank you!!! XOXO

  3. Ciertamente los italianos al igual que los griegos tienden a recordarnos un poco a nuestros países latinos… estás de revista.

  4. Nice post dear ;)

  5. What a stunning Lookbook! I adore all of these different styles and that incredible city~
