Outfit: A Popsicle in Pompeii

shorts // top // purse // hat // sunnies // shoes (my favorite shoes for travel)

While I am enjoying Paris with my family, I thought I would share another outfit from my trip to the Amalfi Coast two weeks ago. Don’t worry, there will be lots of Paris pics once I return!

If I could describe Pompeii in one word, it would be HOT. In my opinion, there is nothing hotter and more uncomfortable than touring ancient ruins in the summer. This is especially true for the ancient Roman city of Pompeii, since there is nothing but un-shaded ruins. So when touring Pompeii comfort and sun protection are my two priorities. You’ll want good shoes (closed toe since there are a lot of rocks and dust, especially if you climb Vesuvius), a comfy and cool outfit, a hat, and a ton of sunscreen! I also added my adorable popsicle purse to keep me cool, well thinking of cold things anyway.

Despite the high temps and unforgiving sun, Pompeii really is an amazing place to explore. Frozen in time by the volcanic eruption of Vesuvius, it is one of the best preserved ancient Roman sites.

Have you ever been to Pompeii?
