I call this outfit “going native,” but let’s be real, it’s far from “Italian style.” But, in my defense, I did buy this entire outfit in Florence! I wandered into Zara one afternoon with the intent of finding something slightly out of my style comfort zone (aka something more Italian).
I fell in love with this zippered, cropped pink jacket, which is a little different from my typical blazer. But then I saw this floral top and high-waisted striped shorts. An Italian woman would have probably paired this jacket with a black top or dress, I on the other hand could resist mixing the stripes and florals and popping it with the pink jacket (#sorrynotsorry). While I failed in my attempt to dress more Italian, I loved the outfit in the end.
We took these photos in one of my favorite spots in Florence, the Piazzale Michelangelo. It has an incredible view overlooking the city and is my favorite spot to watch the sun set and drink prosecco.
