Hoodie – FOG
The Altare della Patria or Il Vittoriano – a monument built in honour of the first unified King of Italy . The colossal building features incredibly detailed marble stairways, columns and sculptures. The Summit features two equestrian sculptures of the goddess Victoria, the roman god of Victory. If you didn’t know already I went to Rome for the weekend, Me and my boyfriend spent the weekend staying in central Rome at the Rome Times Hotel (here). Amongst all of the incredible architecture and ruins that Rome is so well known for, the Altare Della Patria stood out to me the most, even though it’s not the oldest most impressive building in Rome, I’m not sure why I just couldn’t stop thinking about it. The white marble, the winged sculptures, the eternal flames and the gargantuan steps just provided me with so much inspiration. I had a bit of a classic blogger moment where I asked my other half to take my picture whilst exploring the Altare della Patria.
For exploring Rome in February it wasn’t as cold as we thought it would be. I would suggest a Hoodie/Jumper and a jacket because when the sun goes away it does tend to get a bit chilly but if the sun is shining then you would be okay in just a sweatshirt. I purchased these cropped off white denim jeans from ASOS just before the weekend because I’d been told by a friend that the fit was perfect, turns out, he was right. I absolutely love these jeans and I wore with them with my Chelsea Boots completely by accident. I only took my Yeezy 350 Boost and Common Projects Chelsea Boots with me to Rome, I knew we would be out all day and going somewhere ‘nice’ for dinner so didn’t really want to be wearing sneakers for the meal. In the hotel room I thought ‘I wonder if my off white jeans will go well with my chelsea boots’ and after trying them on I realised the jeans cropped at just the right length for the boots and I fell in love with how they looked and fit together.
I felt like people were looking at me strange throughout the day and I couldn’t think whether it was because I was clearly a tourist, or because I was wearing off white jeans or because of my cropped jean/chelsea boot combination – either way I didn’t really give a fuck. I wore my fog hoodie to keep warm and my camel coat over the top (not pictured).
