Monday Love: A trip to Rome

My nephew Leo, who talks italian like a pro, with cute litte Lotti, who was the star during our trip. We loved having dinner in the Trattoria Ottello, which is worth visiting - deliciously homemade cuisine!

Fashion kids: My son Marin (with new shades!), Leo and Lotti at a family feast for the celebration of my nice and nephews kommunion and firmung (catholic sactraments)and my friend Sophies daughter Olivia at the Foro Romana (photo courtesy by her).

The Pantheon, a very impressive place we visit again and again. Even with tons of tourists trampling through each day it hasn't lost it's magic. There's tons of other places i'd like to show, these are just little glimpses of the biggest museum in the world!

My trip to the eternal city this may has also been a little excursion into summer - which doesn't want to arrive here it seems! I love the city - it's so vibrant and humming with ancient art and nowadays fashion.

The colours are gorgeous, especially in the soft evening sun: white marble, gold ochre and pale pink colored palazzi and town houses. The women have this elegant way of walking, and i've never seen men better dressed then here. Italians seem to have that natural sense of fashion and style. I'm so lucky to have my bro and family living there, - so i can return time after time. Thank you Alex & Julia!

  10. I am so jealous - how lucky you are to have family there. I remember feeling very aware of what I was wearing in France and Italy. They are just beautiful at every moment. I bet their tops aren't wide open as they shop - and if they are, they have stunning bras on underneath.
