Polka Dots in Firenze

Dress (similar) - LOFT / Bag (similar) and Heels (similar) - Sole Society / Necklace - BaubleBar / Bracelet - Michael Kors

I think these are the only other outfit photos we managed to take in Italy. Whenever I travel I have these grandiose plans to take photos all over the place, and then it turns out while I'm on vacation I don't really feel like working (yep, blogging is definitely work!).

These photos were taken on a sidestreet around the corner from our hotel in Florence before dinner one night (we stayed right by the Duomo). Word on the street was we had to try a Bistecca Fiorentina, or in English, a freaking gigantic steak. If we were going to eat eighteen pounds of cow we wanted to do it up right, and decided to try walking in to La Giostra after we couldn't get a reservation. We got there right when it opened, and I'm pretty sure we were the only walk-ins they had space for. After some freaking amazing pear ravioli, a steak the size of our heads, and a whole lot of wine, we walked out very happy campers.

When packing for Italy, I mostly stuck with flat sandals or sneakers, but wanted to toss in one pair of fancier shoes for dinners out. I chose to bring these block heels, and was so glad they were the pair I decided to go with. We saw lots of tourists with their stilettos wobbling around on the cobblestone roads, but I was good to go in these babies! Packing win.
