This being Flashback Friday, I had to talk about my amazing trip to Costa Rica last month. Especially now that I have to endure the snowy DC weather! I was in Costa Rica for my friend Crystal’s wedding. The ceremony was in Jaco, Costa Rica at this amazing resort, Zephyr Palace. For lodging, I stayed at the sister resort Villa Caletas. I am telling you now, run to this amazing paradise because everything about it was spectacular!
The sunsets are like nothing I have ever seen before and the view from the resort left me in awe. With the hustle and bustle of life, it was really calming to take a moment in the evening to watch the sunset and remember there is more to life than errands, bills and all of the other trappings of adulthood that keep us up at night. Not a moment went by that I did not think about how lucky I was to be in this majestic utopia. Best of all, I was lucky enough to travel with an awesome group of friends. My dear friend Leslie even convinced me to go ziplining (yup, I was REALLY scared but faced my fears)!
For my outfit to the wedding, I wore an orange maxi dress from Old Navy. I found it on the clearance rack for $12! I loved the dress and the color screened tropics. Since the dress itself was simple, I added the hair chain to give it that Grecian vibe. I bought for less than $10 at a beauty supply store in Houston. I did a smokey eye and a nude lip.
Crystal and Jake’s wedding was hands down one of the most amazing weddings I have ever been to. To start, the location was breathtaking! The bride and groom reminded me of Ken and Barbie! The reception was beautiful, the décor was exquisite and you saw the bride’s touch in every detail. I know, they look fantastic!
