This week has been such an important and memorable week in Rome. Thousands of people have gathered and come here to witness the election of the new pope. Throughout the week, many people have been to and from the Vatican each day to watch the black or white smoke pour out of the Sistine chapel, indicating whether a pope has been chosen or not. I feel truly blessed that I was able to witness such a special moment in history!
I found this Fashionista making her way to the Vatican. When I first saw her, I thought that she looked classy, conservative and comfortable. She was dressed perfectly for a long day in anticipation for the pope. The first piece of her look that stood out to me was her pair of bold, bright tights! Her look is particularly successful because she keeps it simple. By coupling her bright maroon tights with a neutral dress and neutral shoes, she brightens up her simple, causal look.
She finishes off her outfit with a classic staple essential for every closet — her trench coat. A classic trench coat is one of the key fashion trends of the season. While the weather is filled with rain clouds and wind, a trench coat adds the perfect amount of warmth and elegance to a look without the usual bulk of a heavy winter jacket. Lastly, she adds another classic staple — a neutral infinity scarf — to pull her look together. This Fashionista has a comfy, bold style and is clearly ready to witness an important moment in Rome!
