Costa Rica Fashion Diary

Summer is officially HERE (finally), and a lot of us like to travel during these months off. I was recently lucky enough to stay at the Westin Resort & Spa in Costa Rica and wore some pretty awesome outfits for my resort vacation (if I do say so myself!!). So here I am with my Costa Rica fashion diary / my first fashion diary ever haha!

We were there for just 3 nights and if I’m being honest, I spent most of the time in my bathing suit… but for those few moments I had clothes on, this is what I wore!

Costa Rica was incredibly rainy while we were there, but we still wanted to do a nice walk on the beach! No makeup, messy ocean hair, and feeling incredibly happy. Not giving an F feels pretty good… I think we all should do that more often!!

Ugh, how cute is this romper?! Stripes, and beachy AF. Check it out HERE!

Definitely didn’t bring any shoes for our walk on the beach, but these sandals would look PERFECT with the romper!!

These photos were taken after the most relaxing couple hours of our trip. We had full access to the spa facilities and they were absolutely breathtaking. You could faintly hear the ocean from the outside hottub and cabana area, this automatically put all of us at ease.

Love love love this outfit, perfect for a pool day cover-up!!

This picture was 100% taken in the rain… at 7am lol. As I said, it rained a lot while we were there but we weren’t gonna let it stop us from enjoying the day. We weren’t even phased by it, just apart of the whole “jungle girl” lifestyle we were rocking.

This was actually my dinner outfit from the night before, but I had to get some daytime pictures for you guys! It’s a totally different look than I’m used to, but I’m really happy that I’ve been stepping outside my comfort zone lately.

Unfortunately we were only there a limited amount of time, so that means a limited amount of outfits to show! BUT DON’T WORRY (I’m sure you weren’t worried lol), lots more summer fashion posts to come! I’m hoping to travel more this summer, so we’ll see! Of course I’ll be bringing you guys along every step of the way πŸ™‚

Again, huge thank you to The Westin for having my friends and I at your resort – it was stunning and I can’t wait to go back!
