After visiting Florence for the first time, I knew I wanted more of this city and fell in love instantly. We were supposed to go to our family home in Sardinia, but after staying on the Amalfi Coast for almost 10 days, I had my fair share of being at the beach. (I know, island life problems, right?!) Living in Hawaii where our beaches are the most beautiful in the world, my husband and I decided to cancel Sardinia and go back to Florence.



It’s such a romantic city filled with cobblestone streets, outdoor café’s, fashion, cultural and endless amounts of architecture. Our favorite area was Santa Croce, a more local feel of a neighborhood with fewer tourists and the best restaurants. On the weekends when the clock hits midnight, the streets are filled with hipsters enjoying a spritzer or two.




My favorite thing to do was just walk for miles and stumble upon cute outdoor café’s where we indulged in some antipasti and an afternoon espresso. With a fashionable city like Florence, this perfect bold colored Misty long dress from ViX Paula Hermanny and gold flat sandals made the perfect travel go-to outfit. (It doesn’t wrinkle, so need to worry about having to iron it!) It was so comfortable as it’s made out of jersey with an elastic band at the waist and slits on the side for that slightly sexy appeal. This dress is a total stunner and made heads turn, that now my husband calls for me to wear that “orange dress” on date nights.
