California Meets Verona

Dress: Ann Taylor Loft  Necklace: Nordstrom Collection  Watch: Michael Kors  Sunglasses Ray Ban

Since I was only in Verona for one day, I didn't have too much time for pictures. I was extremely busy running around crowded piazzas and trying to take in everything the city had to offer. It has been unseasonably warm in Italy since I got here. By now everyone should be bundled up in layers and scarves, but instead it is 85 degrees. I can't stand to be walking around when I'm hot, so I decided to wear a sundress to keep me cool. In doing this I learned that in Italy if it's fall, no matter how warm it is, you dress for fall. People were looking at me like I was crazy to be wearing a dress in October, but it was so warm out that I didn't mind. Sometimes being comfortable, especially when you're traveling, is the most important thing. I normally try to assimilate to my surrounding culture as much as possible, but on that hot day in Verona I was happy to look like a California girl. Nothing beats a dress when it's warm out. Pair it with some comfortable sandals and a crossbody purse and you're ready for sight seeing in warmer weather.
