This time next week I’ll be in the beautiful Italian city of Rome. I’m super excited to be going, not only because I LOVE Rome but also because I’m going to a Baptism at the Vatican whilst I’m there. How insanely cool is that?
For the Baptism we have to wear something cream, white or ivory as well as wear a Mantilla.. For those who don’t know what that is, don’t worry I didn’t either until I googled it, it’s a lace or silk scarf that women wear over their head and shoulders.
As far as the rest of my outfit is concerned, I have absolutely no idea what to wear! I can’t decide whether to wear a cream/ivory/white dress or a blouse and skirt 😩 I probably have to buy something for either of these options as I don’t have any nice Baptism acceptable clothes in these colours, just beach dresses 😂 I’ve spent ages looking online but nothing has stood out! I don’t know whether I’m looking in the wrong place or whether I’m just a bit picky 🤷🏽♀️ I also expect that it’s going to be reasonably warm so don’t want to wear anything too heavy or tight… It’s hard work being a girl!!
I also need to decide what to pack, I know the basics (thanks to my Essentials Packing List) but I just can’t decide exactly what dress/skirt etc to take. I might just do a little online shop and buy a few new bits to make packing a little simpler 🙊
If anyone has any suggestions on where to buy a nice dress/skirt and blouse for the Baptism then please let me know in the comments below!
As always, thanks for reading x
