Yellow and Blue

This outfit was so much fun to shoot and I absolutely love the outcome. I paired this thrifted button up blouse with my favorite cobalt blue plaid pants from Free People to keep the look light and then added black accessories, a dog shaped purse, chunky Fila sneakers, and a tube top, to make it more of a grungy feel.

Layered Shirt Trend

Recently, there have been a lot of fun trends out there and one of my favorite, and also most easy to accomplish, is wearing a long sleeve shirt under a short sleeve one. This is how I dressed when I was in middle school and I always looked back and cringed but, I think if styled in the right way, it’s a fun way to dress up a boring tee.

First Sunday of the Month : Florence Italy – Free things to do + OOTD

Hello and cheers to the weekend! I wanted to share a little fun fact about the city of Florence, Italy today that I didn’t know until I came here. If you are ever in Firenze on the first Sunday of the month, a ton of the museums are free! It’s definitely worth hitting a couple if you can because overall, you do save a bit of cash!

It is impossible to do every single free museum in a day so do your research and pick out your favorites. On my free museum Sunday, we went to Accademia, Palazzo Pitti, and the Boboli Gardens. This total took about 5 hours to conquer.

I didn’t rush through only because I knew I will have another first Sunday in Florence again before I have to return to the states. My next visit I think will cover the Uffizi, Bargello, and the Medici Chapel.

Below are my photos of my outfit I wore along with some photos I took throughout the day at the museums I stopped off at.

Galleria dell’Accademia : this is the museum where Michelangelo’s famous Statue of David lives. It is definitely a must see while you are in Florence.

Palazzo Pitti : this is where the ruling families of Florence lived, post- Medici, and was basically used for many different things afterwards. This museum is absolutely stunning, there isn’t a dull part.
