Navy and White Outfit in Florence.

     Continuing with my Italy trip adventures by sharing this outfit from a day out in Florence. It seems like I was there yesterday... I can't believe it was two months ago!

   I wore this outfit for a day of museum touring in Florence with my mom. This was one of our "free days" on our Italian tour adventure, and since my mom is an artist, she was really excited on this day in Florence to explore the famous Uffizi Gallery musuem, which is one of the largest museums in the world for renaissance period art. While I do enjoy certain types of museums (aquariums are my jam), art museums aren't my favorite. Growing up with an artist mom, I spent my fair share of time as a kid getting to visit different ones, both in Maine and also on vacations around the US. I'm not really sure why, but I've just never clicked with art museums. Just not my thing? But anyways, I'll share more about our Uffizi visit and what I thought of it in my Florence Travel Guide, but this is the outfit that I wore for a day of museum and city exploration!

     I love looking at travel bloggers' Instagram photos and blog posts of Europe trips, and other destinations as well, and marveling at their amazing outfits and hair/makeup. Even though I've been to Europe a few times now, I haven't found that I've been able to pull off fashions that fantastic when I travel overseas- just being real! On our Italy trip, our tour company had a one suitcase requirement, and our personal item was limited to strictly a personal item like a purse or camera bag, not a carry-on suitcase or duffel like the airlines allow! So that meant I had to be very strategic about packing for this trip, and for the most part everything I brought had to be able to be worn in multiple outfits. That's how this outfit came to be! I wore these white jeans and this navy and white top throughout the trip, but I loved the way they looked together for this day out in Florence. Italy wasn't too warm when my mom and I were there in March, but this specific day in Florence was sunny and on the warmer side, so I was fine without a jacket. 

      Hope y'all are having a great Monday! It has been raining all weekend here in Vermont so I am REALLY excited to see the sunshine that's in our forecast for the rest of the week.

     God Bless,
