I don't know if I wrote this on my blog yet, but I'm going to study abroad in ROME for five weeks this summer! You can't imagine how excited I am. I've never been out of the country before...I mean, c'mon, Canada doesn't count, especially since I was eight at the time and we only drove ten miles across the border before turning back.
I'm counting down the days in my school planner until my plane takes off, but until then I've been doing a lot of preparation for the trip. And one of those preparations, of course, includes shopping.
I went to H&M today and bought a ton of cute clothes. Here is one of my favorite outfits that I came up with:
You can see the details by going to my Polyvore account, http://www.preppypremed.polyvore.com. This is an outfit I'd wear exploring the city. All the blues in the outfit reminded me of the pictures I'd seen of the Trevi fountain, which is one of the first sights I want to see (anyone remember that Lizzie McGuire movie where Lizzie goes to visit Rome and makes a wish in the Trevi fountain and all her dreams come true? Anyone? No?)
The one thing I'm having problems with: deciding what shoes I'm going to bring to Rome. I'm going to be walking A LOT, and I've heard horror stories from relatives who've traveled around Europe and came back with sores as big as quarters on their feet due to poor footwear choices. Anybody know of any cute, comfortable walking shoes I can buy? Help!!!
