The Look: Roman Holiday

Lately, I've been daydreaming about Italy.

Call it the Sunday blues, or a severe case of holiday yearning, but sitting inside at a desk all day never seems tougher than when the warmer months roll around.

The other night I read every word aloud of my Italian phrasebook while waiting for my roommate before we went out.

These days it's all about cubicles and careers, so gallivanting around on a pastel coloured vespa with a young handsome Gregory Peck will have to wait. Until the day I decide to move to Italy and eat gelato for breakfast, I created a look inspired by the classic film, Roman Holiday on

Enjoy! xx
