Or, what to wear when not meeting the pope.
Rome is seriously kicking my butt. There is just so much to see and do, and every day we get home in a state of absolute disbelief that our feet haven't just crumbled into sad little piles of dust in our shoes. That said, I have to apologize for being brief in my posts and slow to respond to comments and write (weeks overdue!) emails. I do at least have an excuse involving copious quantities of pizza.
This is what I wore for our visit to Vatican City yesterday (woohoo, new country! ...sorta). I'll admit to a serious case of the wardrobe blahs in the morning - all of my clothes were dirty, and while I seem to be the only tourist (anywhere, ever) who actually cares about modesty and dress-codes in religious spaces, I do still care. As I keep trying to explain to Chris (as he urges me into cathedrals in minidresses) - just because everyone else is tacky and disrespectful doesn't mean I have to be.
