Grazie for following along on my Italian Holiday! Although I am missing the European ambiance, San Francisco is not a bad place to return home to. Today I am sharing with you one of many looks I rocked during my time in Florence, featuring this pair of velvet flare pants.
Tuesday afternoon we set out for a tour of the Uffizi Museum. If you’re fond of art, add this exhibit to your bucket list. There are over 10,000 works of Renaissance Art in the museum. A guide is encouraged because it is easy to get “lost” in the endless halls of artwork and you do not want to miss a Michelangelo painting! Anyway, I do not do well in cold temperatures, so I packed expecting the worse. After all the hype, the weather there was not much different than the weather at home. I got off easy…
A flower child at heart, I take advantage of every opportunity I get to wear 1970’s fashions. When I came across these velvet flare pants from Forever 21, I knew they would be perfect for a day of exploring Firenze. Velvet is a toasty fabric and quite comfortable too. I paired these bottoms with a burgundy turtleneck sweater and draped a little pink coat over my shoulders creating a feminine contrast. The only thing I would have changed about this look is the shoes! My feet needed a massage after walking the cobblestone streets in high heels. Now I see why they say, “wear comfortable shoes” in Florence. It is not the mileage, but it is the terrain. Even if you are a professional heel wearer like me, the uneven pavement is difficult to navigate in anything other than flats or wedges. Lesson learned!
After taking these photos at the very scenic Ponte Vecchio, we wined and dined at the charming trattoria, Pandemonio. All I can say is good thing these pants had an elastic waist…but more about the food tomorrow!
