It’s finally starting to look (and feel) like fall here in Italy. Leaves cover the walking paths of my favorite Florentine park and there is a tinge of chill in the air. Despite the fact that the weather stubbornly refuses to oblige to autumn temperatures, every true Italian is in full out winter wear.

I learned quickly that they don’t dress for the weather, but rather the season. I swear, they have a special Mediterranean gene that allows them to dress like an eskimo in 75 degree weather and not sweat profusely. This I will truly never understand. So this is my compromise: ankle booties, a lightweight scarf and a utility vest (sans sleeves).

As always, thank you for reading.

  1. That vest is on my wish list! I went hunting for it in-store but couldn’t find it 🙁 Love how you styled it with the belt.

    • Thank you so much! And I know, those army vests (especially in smaller sizes) are hard to find.
