Pack for..Florence

Mangia, Mangia, Mangia and some sight seeing. A couple of weeks ago for spring break I traveled throughout the most carb-filled country in the world; Italy. I made stops in the major cities; Rome, Florence, Pisa, Venice, & Milan and picked up on the tourists and residences style at each one. I previously blogged about how to pack for Rome so next up is the college-city of Florence. For the month of March it rained a little more than I expected but the experience was still the same. The cobble-stone streets were full of small shops, designers, cafes, restaurants, and little holes in the wall. I have to admit Florence was simply the best place to eat no matter if it was a sandwich to take away (aka to go), coffee, or pasta. YUM
raviolis with truffle oil .. heaven

Sandwich to take away at I Due Fratellini

My packing essentials:

Jeans– jeans are always my go-to, they are so comfortable and can be dressed up at night with heels
Boots– the cobblestone streets can hurt your feet in flats & the most stylish item in Italy are tall boots.
Scarf– the weather can change drastically from warm and sunny to cold and rainy so a scarf is perfect for those changes in weather and light to carry
Rain Jacket– it surprisingly rained a lot for the month of March
Tee-shirt & Light sweater– Florence is a college town full of college students (obviously) and tourists so no need to dress up everyone you see will be in tourist or college attire.

My favorite place:
Gillis – i managed to go here three times while in Florence. They had amazing morning pastries & cookies followed with delicious lattes and iced cappuccinos. They’re outdoor seating is in the center on a gorgeous plaza where you can spot Hugo Boss & Zara. But be careful, for a cheaper coffee take it standing at the bar service can be quite expensive!

P.S- thank you again Vince for featuring me on Look 10 !! Please check it out 🙂
