I have officially been in this incredible country for a week now, and I have to admit it feels like longer. I was honestly surprised how easy it was for me to adapt, and after a few times getting lost, I'm starting to know my way around. The first few days were spent exploring the beautiful city of Florence and on Tuesday we started classes. I am already so obsessed with my fashion marketing class. My professor is the head of this awesome Italian fashion company called Nannini. She's already taught me so much about the industry, and I am excited to learn more this semester.
This shoot was actually taken in my backyard. We have a huge garden and this incredible orange tree smack dab in the middle. This look was put together previous to my arrival, and although it reflects my style, it doesn't really reflect Italian style. Despite the heat I haven't seen too many shorts or exposed shoulders. It is a very modest country and their take on summer apparel is fascinating to me. We've been learning in my class how the Italian culture has an outfit for every occasion. For example it has a city wardrobe and a sea wardrobe. We are taking a trip to the coast this weekend to observe the differences between the two. Italy is so beautiful and there is so much to explore. Be sure to follow along each week as I catalog all of my adventures!
