The Perfect Tourist

{What I'm Wearing: Top—H&M, Scarf—Anthropologie "Arno Scarf" (remixed), Sunglasses—Ray-Ban}
On our third day in Florence, Andrew and I attempted to climb the Duomo. However, with our fantastic luck, it turned out that we came on the one day out of the year that the Duomo is closed to the public (other than Sundays and religious holidays). Luckily, the guards were instead giving people free admission to climb the perimeter of the cathedral directly in front of the Duomo. The perimeter still had amazing views of the city, plus we were able to spend the 20 euros we saved by not climbing the Duomo on a bit more wine and gelato :)

For the climb, I stuck with my trusty striped tee and a light scarf to protect my neck from the sun. Andrew forgot sunscreen so I made him wear it like a pashmina while we were waiting in line. Unfortunately, (or fortunately for him) no pictures were taken to document that wonderfully embarrassing occurrence ;) 

As it turns out, my "Arno scarf," (named after the Arno River in Florence!) happens to have the city skyline printed on it, so I felt like a really awesome tourist the whole time I was wearing it. And I'm not being sarcastic...I was really excited about the fact that I finally had the chance to actually wear my Italian-inspired scarf in Italy!
