Street Style In Florence In October: Stalking People And A Day Out Embarrassing My Husband

written by M.E. Evans October 19, 2013

I spent the day out with my husband stalking people in the center of Florence. My husband finds it highly inappropriate to take pictures of people I don’t know and he followed me around whispering, “stop DOING THAT!”. He needs to loosen up a little bit OR I need to have a different attitude about documenting other people’s lives. Anyways, I took a variety of different people all rocking their personal style for fall in Florence, Italy. You’ll notice the men in Italy are dressed very well with perfectly coordinated outfits. The women are similar and most of them were sporting the standard black boot that is ever-popular in Italy every fall/winter. This is an excellent Italian style guide for traveling to Italy because magazines are usually more focused on Milan style and what celebrities wear. This is how real people dress in Firenze. I threw in a few pictures of the city too because it was a beautiful day and because sometimes when people would stare at me for stalking them I had to take a picture of a building or something to look “normal.”

I think you should have stopped the priest and interviewed him. 😉

That is an excellent idea! I shall do that next time for you!

Congratulations! It’s so hard taking pictures of ‘real’ people! I do the building thing a lot but then end up with shots of the bloody building. 😉

Thanks babe! Yeah, it’s really obvious and there’s no real way to hide it. There were a few people who kept staring at me after I shot them but luckily nobody said anything. I learned recently that it’s actually Illegal to take pictures of children in Italy without consent from the parents. What an awkward thing to go to jail for.

Even more awkward than going to jail for letting your husband bleed out while he sleeps 🙂

Yeah. I don’t know how I would explain that I bled him out as a joke/revenge for making me go to the doctor.

The priest looks like he is going out on a jaunty stroll/ mission to kill. I would take the mom’s outfit over the teen daughter’s any day. Love her shoes.

I thought the same thing. Assassins or priests? We’ll never know.

Great blog and so helpful! Leaving for Florence on Friday and I’m a bit flummoxed. Are people still wearing tall black boots this time of year?

M.E. Evans March 31, 2014 at 4:13 pm

Yes! lol. Usually people will wear their “winter-ish” style until the end of April or beginning of May (or even mid-May). Their style changes with the fashion season more often than the weather season. LOL. So, yeah, you’re likely to see girls in shorts with tights under, and long sleeved shirts and jackets until then. It’s actually a huge irritation for Italians that Americans go with bare legs or arms “so early in the season.”

So helpful! I’m heading to Florence this week and the temps they are forecasting are midsummer temps here in ireland. Will adjust my wardrobe and just sweat it out 🙂

This is INSANELY helpful! We are planning an Italian honeymoon end of October/early November and as an occasional fashion blogger, this has perplexed and stressed me to no end. Thank you for stalking these people in the name of street style!
