Ciao Bella | Camel, Black + Rose Gold

MICHAEL Michael Kors, Zara Leather Pencil Skirt, Rebecca Minkoff Booties As you read this, we've just arrived in Italy, already checked into our Air B&B + are probably already headed out to start exploring the streets of Rome.  For the next nine days, I will be vacationing in Italy, celebrating my birthday with my love.  I can't wait to see what adventures unfold on this trip.  I think what I'm most excited about, is the fact that this is the first time, since I was 14 years old, that I have not had a care in the world (job wise) and I'm looking forward to not checking my email obsessively, or having to sneak off to solve a work related "emergency"- for once in my life, I can finally relax. I'm also looking forward to eating my way through Italy, with our first stop being in Rome!

Now, let's talking about today's outfit.  This cashmere sweater is a recent purchase, from Michael Kors.  There are many things I love about this sweater... For one how soft it is.  Also, the shape is awesome (perfect for all the pasta eating, I plan to do in Italy) and while it is a trapeze silhouette, the cashmere is thin enough that the sweater doesn't feel bulky + fits well under a leather jacket.

When wearing a trapeze silhouette on top, you want to make sure you bottom half is sleek and narrow to balance out the look. Pencil skirts or skinny jeans are both great options to pair back to a lose fitting top.

I also happen to love the color of this sweater... it's not camel, but suntan rather and has a hit of pink undertone to it, making it a a perfect match with Rose Gold.

When I was putting this look together, I was thinking Magazine Editor... nailed it?  I would say so, but please - tell me what you think? (ps.  I bought this outfit with me to Italy, so don't be surprise if it pops up again later in the week).
