VATICAN CITY / Peplum sweater and olive pants in St. Peter's Square and Basilica

peplum sweater what to wear to church saint peters
Ciao from Vatican City (St. Peter's Square to be exact) where these pictures were taken.  Shane and I are having the most wonderful time in the Eternal City and to say that I am in awe over everything that Rome has to offer would be the understatement of the year.  We are only on day 4 of our trip and already we've got to see some of the most beautiful churches in the world, eat some delizioso Italian food (after only our third big meal in Rome, Shane says he feels he has been lied to his whole life about what Italian food is), and interact with the kindest people.  In a quick summary, we've gone to Florence and back, saw the Vatican Necropolis (highly recommended!), explored St. Peter's Square and Basilica, and unknowingly saw the Crypt of the Nativity at the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore.  Incredible.

This isn't a problem while Shane and I are here because of the colder weather but it is important to note that shoulders and knees must be covered at most churches here in Rome and this is strictly enforced at St. Peter's Basilica.  Even while climbing the steps up the dome and in the 95% humidity of the scavi, it is important to be respectful and remember that the reward will be a lifetime of memories that far surpasses the uncomfortable feelings.
