The weather has been heating up quickly over the last few weeks, but Italians are slow to shed their puffer coats and thick scarves. As a New Yorker, I’m finding the early onset of warmth incredible. My tolerance for snow must be at an all time low after an entire winter here. With May right around the corner, it’s easy to stand out for dressing incorrectly for a Florentine spring. I often find myself sweating already while wandering along the cobblestone streets, when the Italians beside me are donning a beanie. Yes, beanies in the heat.
