inspiration: roman holiday

a little inspiration for spring...

"american girl in italy" by ruth orkin, stuck in the corner of my mirror.

i love this photo, which graced the cover that i tore off from a thank-you note. don't we all want this reaction when we walk down the street? the shawl, the bucket bag, the gladiator sandals... so effortless, even though her beautiful face is harried. a year ago, i was traipsing around rome in the cold, early-spring rains that alternated with warm sunshine. yeah, it was difficult to dress accordingly. we've gotten over the cold hump of winter, and now i'm craving the ease and simplicity of summer dressing... but light jackets, thin sweaters and flats will have to suffice for now.

actually, i think orkin took that photo in florence... but i made it there, too.

p.s. yeah, i know my bra is showing.

crazy strappy bra, urban outfitters. tank, american apparel. lipstick, revlon matte in really red.
