Roman Summer Fashions

So. My computer broke. In the words of Apple tech support it “broke spectacularly.”

Three weeks with the Genius Bar here in Rome, and I finally have it back. It is not the same as it was before the incident, but I am going to have to make it work because I do not have another three weeks to wait.

The computer broke while I was traveling and I am getting ready to pack my bags and travel some more.  For me, I manage to make packing also about shopping.  I’ve been on the hunt for culturally appropriate clothes for a variety of settings.

Unfortunately, all I have been finding is some Roman summer fashion at it’s very finest.

Feast your eyes on the bounty, and let me know if you need me to pick you up anything. (I actually shouldn’t be so sarcastic because I get a TON of emails asking where to buy Italian summer boots).

How about a Detroit jersey, with flappy silver accents?

Let’s not forget, it’s summer. SPF and hats are a must. Here’s my favorite:

Anyways, I don’t want to forget the boys:

    I’m sorry to hear about your computer’s malfunction. That is definitely something really annoying.

    By the way, the clothes in this post look very “Jersey Shore” doesn’t it? :P

      Those fashion are unavoidable!
      For vintage and boutique shopping: Monti. Some of my favorite tiny jewelry stores are on Via del Boschetto
      For super splurge: Via del Babuino (near the Spanish Steps)
      For everything in one crowded place: Via del Corso
      For making yourself want to drop everything and move to Rome: Via dei Coronari. Adorable street, interesting shops, and make sure to get a gelato at Gelateria del Teatro (about half way down).
