to Rome with love

{J. Crew blazer and jeans, Silence & Noise blouse, vintage scarf, Zara handbag, Steve Madden via Threadflip oxfords, Jewelmint bracelet, Urban Outfitters watch, polish: Face for J. Crew}

Everyone loves a good themed event, so it only felt natural to dress appropriately when I went to go see this fancy, foreign film last weekend with my beau. Having visited Rome two years earlier- remembering the chic, yet understated, gorgeous women of that city- I immediately knew to keep it simple but add a little something special. I have been recently very attracted to a bandana/necktie combo, and knew it would add that extra something! But enough about me, what do you add when you need that little extra to jazz up a look?

Maybe your something special could be the Rocks Paper Metal neon bracelet giveaway? Enter today!
