Florence, Italy 12/31/17 – 1/1/18

Firenzi!! Florence was our next stop on our Europe trip! Florence is one of my favorite cities ever and it was so good to be back! It was insanely crowded but that didn’t take away from the amazing atmosphere here.

Florence has some of the best shopping in the world. Of course there are the high end designers but the best stores are the random small ones throughout the smaller streets. Clothes and things are inexpensive and so unique. Soon to be huge fashion trends hit these stores early.

Happy New Year’s Eve! I wore this velvet, glittery jumpsuit from Zara on Christmas but specifically bought it for New Years so here it is again. This is easily one of the best jumpsuits I’ve ever purchased!

Our New Years Eve celebrations consisted of going to an amazing Italian (of course) dinner followed by watching fireworks above the Ponte Vecchio. Florence is wild on this night, people just love blowing up fireworks. This city is so alive!

DAY 2

First day of the new year and we woke up to rain and that for some reason, was such a peaceful way to start off 2018. Below I am wearing a coat that my uncle got for me here in Florence! It is my new favorite thing I own because it is so different from anything I’ve seen. This store has some of the most unique pieces and it’s definitely one I’ll head back to again!

Today we walked around the city a bit but it was raining so not as much walking as the previous day. We had a private tour of Palazzo Medici which was actually really interesting. I usually prefer self guiding myself through a museum but or tour guide pointed things out that I would have never learned on my own. The palace was gorgeous. It’s so crazy that it still looks the way it does even with how old it is.

I have wanted to study abroad for my whole life and 2018 is the year I believe I will do it. I was torn between attending a school in Milan or a school in Florence. After visiting both cities back to back I thin that studying abroad in Florence is my best bet so we went by the school! It was closed because of the holiday but it made me really happy. There are so many good things coming in 2018!

We finished off Florence by going to my family’s apartment they were staying at and my aunt cooked us all dinner. I’m really glad I got to see all of them, especially here in Europe!
