Ciao from Florence!
Yes, that’s right. I’m currently residing in the country of Italia for a whole month! I’m studying abroad for my fashion merchandising major and Kent State happens to have their own campus located in the city of Florence! It’s actually a requirement for fashion majors to study abroad at least once during their time in college, and Florence just happens to be the hot spot for Kent and especially the fashion school. Honestly, I’m not complaining. I freaking love Italy, and it just gives me another excuse to travel abroad!
A lot of people who I’ve told about my trip told me that they’re excited to see all my blog and Instagram posts. There will for sure be plenty of them. I’m going to write one blog post per week during my trip recapping every week with all the details from my experience! I do; however, don’t want to post a crazy amount because I want to live in the moment and enjoy my time here. A month is a long time to live in a new culture, but it also flies by super fast! So I won’t be posting a ton, but you’ll still get to hear all about my experience!
For my first post, I wanted to show off a new outfit of mine! Not surprised much, huh?
This outfit is my new favorite go-to and perfect for spring and summer. It’s casual but also stylish and spunky at the same time. It’s especially perfect for a European adventure! My chambray pants are from Madewell and were only $75. I’m absolutely obsessed with them, they’re currently my favorite pants at the moment. They’re so comfy and go with any clothing piece. When I first saw them and tried them on, I immediately had 70’s vintage vibes and fell in love with them!
My favorite top to pair the pants with is a basic Target black tank top by their clothing line A New Day, along with my white lace bralette from Victoria’s Secret (which I’ve had for over two years now but is still in pretty good shape!). I also have this beautiful yellow ponytail scarf from Francesca’s that I got from my mom. I love these scarves, and they’re so trendy for hairstyles right now! This specific one is perfect for summer with the yellow fabric and elegant pattern. It also makes the outfit look extra boho and European! Hence the title of the blog post 💛
To complete the look, I have a Francesca’s gold choker necklace and bar necklace with an emerald birthstone (two separate necklaces but look fabulous together), tiny gold hoops, a few simple silver and gold bracelets and rings, my black Birkenstock sandals and yellow scrunchie for a bracelet, which just so happens to also be from Francesca’s and is the exact color and pattern as my ponytail scarf! It makes the outfit more pure and whole. I love a good boho chic look!
