Monochrome and Brown

Sometimes it’s really hard to beg my friends and family enough to get them to take outfit posts for me, so my InstaGram gets a more “daily feed” of my looks than this here blog, but I do my best to get some good digital images when I can. This is a look I’m so sad never got photos taken of, but I figured I’d share the Insta’ photos with you, because it’s honestly not that bad.

Last Day in Manuel Antonio

Manuel Antonio was GORGEOUS, if you hadn’t gathered by the previous posts’ pictures. I mean, so was Costa Rica in General, but the beach owns my heart. On the last day I rocked a comfortable, airy maxi skirt with my bralet from Urban Outfitters and took one last advantage of the balcony and view.

Manuel Antonio Day 3: I’m on a Boat

On my third day in Manuel Antonio, we woke up at 7 am to go snorkeling! I’d never been and it had been a dream of mine! We took a lovely coastal ride in the boat and then threw anchor on a nice little reef. My host family had warned me that it was “red tide” meaning there were supposedly more sharks than usual so I was a bit more nervous than I should have been, but all was good.

Things I saw: Lots of blue fishies, some brown fish, a poisonous sea urchin, a live starfish who walked all over my hand. Dolphins. And NO sharks!

After I’d had my fun in the salty sea it was time to relax on the boat with some fresh pineapple before taking a few jumps off the top of the boat; SO MUCH FUN!

Vamos A Quepos!

Today I’m going to the beach! Most of my time so far in Costa Rica has been spent in the capital city of San Jose, with the exception of a day spent in Jaco, Puntaeras, where I went to the beach, and alligator river, and a lovely lunch (pictures to come).

Here’s a few things I’ve bought for the 3 hour travel and 4 day trip! Magazines in spanish (I’m learning some important fashion terminology!) some skull flip flops, and a Sex Pistols tank, all courtesy of my Costa Rican mother who doesn’t take no for an answer.

Librarian Status

I woke up to a chilly day, comparatively speaking to yesterday’s 88 degrees. I decided to take advantage and don this sweater I found in a pile of my father’s “too small” clothes. Apparently, YES, this sweater is a men’s. Maybe my dad was just a hipster in the 80’s, I don’t know. But, I knew it had the perfect colors and adorable print to mix with my previously white dress. Previously white? Yea, this little city dweller did her laundry and accidentally threw in this perfectly white dress with a red towel with some jeans. I’m planning on bleaching it back to it’s pristine shade, but for now enjoying the subtle spring hue.

Did you know I have glasses? These aren’t your quintessential hipster glasses, they’re my prescription I’m supposed to wear while reading and driving. I mostly don’t while driving, but since a recent excursion to the library on a sick day I picked up this travel book on Costa Rica and have been doing my research for next week.

Inspirations for Costa Rica

In exactly one week I will be in fabulous, sunny, warm San Jose, Costa Rica! I mean, not that it’s warm here, with our March days reaching almost 90 degrees in the North East, but you know what I mean.

So here goes, a visual inspiration of what I should be packing and wearing!

 

The plan: San Jose, mostly. I have day trips planned to the Arenal Volcano and the Sloth Sanctuary. I’ll also be spending four lovely days on the beach in Manuel Antonio, where I’m planning on snorkeling with some sting rays and maybe even going horse back riding!

The gist of what I’m packing? Whites, loose tees, shorts, cotton dresses, and pastels and neons!

I’m so excited for this trip, and I can’t wait to share all the pictures I take with you!
