It’s been a couple of weeks now since our Italy trip, so I figured it’s time to start sharing those pictures. Tomorrow I’ve got a full photo diary coming from our time in Italy. Our time in Italy was pretty busy, but the day we went to Florence, Rob and I got away from the group and moved at our own pace which was a nice break.
Since it was cold and I knew we’d be walking a lot, I opted for layers that I could peel off if the sun came out and flat shoes that were easy and comfortable to walk in for hours on end. This faux fur vest from Yumi Kim arrived just before our trip and ended up being the perfect addition to most of my outfits — it was so much colder in Italy than I expected! A cross body bag was ideal too so I could have my hands free to capture the beauty of this city.
This was our third trip to Florence and it’s one of those cities that I’ll never get sick of. It’s always bustling with people, has great food, beautiful architecture and great shopping. We spent our morning poking around vintage shops. I was eyeing the gorgeous vintage bags (really should have come home with one) while Rob looked for vintage watches. Before lunch we stopped to admire the Ponte Vecchio from a bridge just north of it. We got lucky and had sunshine all morning.
After a big family-style meal, we poked around more vintage shops before calling it a day and posting up in a small bar before heading back to Chiusi, the train station close to the town we stayed in.
Have you ever been to Florence? What’s your go to travel outfit?
