Traveling to Europe for the first time was incredible and eye-opening. The architecture, the art, the food; it was an entirely different world to me. Almost nothing was like I had imagined (in many cases, it was better!). But if you ask me what I was most surprised about, what really stuck in my head more than anything else? The clothes. HOLY COW the clothes.
Absolutely everyone, and I really do mean everyone, was dressed well. No frumpy grandpas here. They really made an effort to leave the house in something other than pajamas (which is more than I can say for myself). They were all chic and on-trend, yet never looked like robots or lost their uniqueness. They never deviated too far from classic lines and shapes, but also weren’t afraid to play with prints and pops of color or texture here and there.
I was in love. Sometime during our stay in Florence, I decided to snap photos of the different outfits I saw because I just couldn’t help myself. I thought it would be fun to share the images here!
I honestly had a blast seeing so many different styles on the streets. I definitely noticed some reoccurring colors and textures; mostly neutrals and A LOT of black. And yet, no two were the same. It was fun trying to guess who was local and who wasn’t.
So often, the fashion world gets a bad rap as being purely materialistic. Although that may be true for some people, I also think it is so often an extension of a city’s culture and art. When I travel, I see fashion as just another piece of the bigger, cultural puzzle. I think that’s incredible!
I’m kicking myself right now for not getting more images from the other cities we visited. I guess it’ll have to be for next time! The images here are only of Florence fashion, but I hope you enjoyed nonetheless. I’m going to share a few of my favorite fashion bloggers for your perusal, so please share your favorites (or yourself!) in the comments; I always love to see what others are doing 🙂

Wow, can definitely see what you mean. I have never been to Europe (definitely on my list), but I know how serious they take their fashion. So inspiring!
They really do! Thanks for commenting 🙂
Thank you so much for sharing a little peek into your travels to Florence! I have never been, so I love viewing images taken by others :-). I so agree with you that fashion is truly a cultural extension, and while it can be a materialistic thing, it is all relative to how we live it out and choose to express it.
Lovely post and your blog is beautiful!
