PLAYING TOURIST AT THE COLOSSEUM IN ROME…

The Colosseum was definitely something I was looking forward to seeing prior to visiting Rome. Being one of the most iconic monuments of the world, I didn’t know what to expect. Certain things are meant to be experienced in person, -and the Colosseum is one of them. After seeing it in person, I can say that images I saw on the internet prior to visiting Rome didn’t do it justice. It is grandiose! I recommend checking it out in the evening as well. It is very beautiful. You can see a shot of it on my previous post.

A day of playing tourist calls for a comfortable outfit. An outfit that you will feel secure and free to move. I opted for a simple pants with a happy floral shirt. Few years ago this shirt didn’t fit me which nearly made me give it away. Deep down I knew I didn’t want to give it away because I loved it a lot, so I gave myself a pep talk to loose weight. Thank God the goal has been achieved. All pieces are old and from my closet. Find a similar shirt here and here.

Share your experience if you’ve visited the Colosseum before. Happy Easter Beauties!

    That colourful floral print shirt is gorgeous! You look fabulous rocking it with the hat and black skinny trousers. I have never been there – I just live vicariously through bloggers’ photos like these πŸ˜€

    I have visited the Colosseum when I was in Rome, but I remember it as being more grayish in tone, probably because it was a rainy day when we were there. It is grandiose, no doubt about that. I haven’t actually been inside it, just walked around it.

    Lovely styling. I really like your floral shirt.

    Ahh, I remember late summer nights we used to come to Colosseo at night. We’d sit on the green meadows and gaze at its beauty, shining lights through all those “windows”. By the way, your floral blouse looks great with this hat! ^_^

    The colosseum has always seemed gianormous, but I guess you have to see it in person to really get it! I love love how brightly you dressed – great hair too, Missy! xx

    You look stunning, and your post made me miss Rome. You are right, Colosseum has to be seen in person. Unfortunately, we visited in the afternoon, I can imagine how beautiufl it could be in the evening. xx

    I love your pictures at Rome’s Colosseum! You look absolutely gorgeous in that floral top, Mavis. I’m glad you didn’t give it away either. I love Ancient Rome history and the first time I saw the Colosseum in person, I was just in awe. It is something one needs to see in person. I do remember a very touchy “Roman guard” who walked around the Colosseum taking pics with tourists. I had to forcefully remove his hands from my boobs!
