On our first full day in Rome, we woke up early to bright winter sunshine without a cloud in sight. Rushing down our breakfast we headed into the city as soon as possible, with so many places to see we had to act fast! Stepping off the metro we arrived at the Il Vittoriano, and its grandeur was visible from afar. It's hard to ignore the mountains of white marble, towering over you, and steps as far as they eye can see. Completed in 1925, the monument was built to honor Victor Emmanuel, the first king of unified Italy. Nowadays it just houses a museum with an elevator that reaches the top with views across Rome. Unfortunately with only a limited time and lots of places to visit, we didn't have a chance to make it to the top. 

This is an ideal outfit when your day involves a lot of walking. The warm coat has a furry collar which means not having to layer up with scarfs. It's essential to keep warm and comfy while exploring so these leggings are ideal. If you're like me and can't afford the real deal, these pretend Ugg boots do just the same job, although they don't last as long. While this outfit keeps you warm and comfy, it is also stylish in case you happen to walk past a hot Italian guy.
