Buongiorno from Florence! Our Italy trip was absolutely incredible. I have so many photos, experiences, and tips to share with you all, and am finally kicking things off here on the blog with photos from Florence (you can thank my horribly slow computer for the delay + photo deletion panic).
Milan was our home base for the trip, but on our first full day we traveled down to Florence. We stayed there for 2 days in a little airbnb (that was a preserved old castle #yes) and hit the cobble stones running to explore as much as we could. I was so thankful to have a beautiful day after Florence saw rain the entire week prior! Kait and I wore comfortable clothes we could easily spend an entire day in. I opted for these new linen shorts (I bought several colors), an off shoulder top, and the M.Gemi sandals I scooped up before the trip. These ended up being my go to shoe nearly everyday – and ironically they’re made right in Firenze (same as Florence). This off shoulder top was perfect for a warm day around the city, but can easily transition into a nighttime piece!
See my tips for dressing in Florence below & stay tuned for a city guide of what we did while there!
Tips for Dressing in Florence
1. Wear comfortable, flat shoes. You’ll do tons of walking and about 80%+ of the streets are bumpy cobblestones.
2. Wear lightweight clothing. If you’re visiting in summer, it’ll be warm. Think Northeast US sans the humidity. I opted for an extremely lightweight pair of shorts and flowy, breathable top. Keep your clothing loose, not fitted. I included some different options in my ‘shop the post’ section below.
3. Wear neutrals. The city is full of so many beautiful backgrounds, colors, and scenery. If you plan on taking photos, I suggest wearing a neutral color palette so the character of the city really stands out!
4. Use a small bag. No one wants to lug around a huge tote while walking for an entire day. Pack your essentials in a small-medium sized crossbody. I threw my camera around my neck (total tourist move) since I knew I’d be snapping photos every other second.
