With a small, capsule-esque wardrobe like mine, the easiest way to repurpose an outfit a few different ways is with subtle changes, like the accessory’s color. I did this recently with a cropped sweater. I wore it with brown shoes and a straw bag then wore again with a new black beaded bag and mules- I liked the different vibes the slight change gave the outfit. If you’re a belt kind of gal, that’s also an option. Somehow, I currently do not own a single belt!
Burnt orange pairs nicely with both brown and black, just switch up small jewelry as well and you’ve got two fairly different looks.
I am such a big fan of these Soludos mules! Atlanta’s already getting hot, so I’ve been subbing these in for my classic black boot for work. Perfect combo of classy and comfy. They also come in tan, thinking I could put some miles in them as well- I love them that much! This is something I have done several times, find a shoe I like and buy in black and brown, especially for reasons like above!
Been blowing up my IG with photos of Costa Rica times so I thought I’d do something a little different recapping our trip on here.
While we explored Jaco, I mostly lived in a swimsuit and coverup but did get dressed up once and got showered up a few times. See below for my favorite pieces I had on the trip and all the way at the bottom is the quickest recap I’ve ever done~!
We spent 6 days in Jaco, Costa Rica with Dustin’s family-there were 11 of us total! It was a super packed out week with a detailed itinerary keeping all of us on track for the activities we signed up for ahead of time. Organized by his awesome mom who made sure everyone had plans they could afford and were going to enjoy mixed with family activities (ie future Christmas card photos) and overall a trip of a lifetime.
On the way to our villa we saw dozen’s of crocidiles from a bridge-super spooky! That same day Dustin surfed-not near the crocs! He totally crushed it. I knew he would with his snowboarding skills. The following day was Easter Sunday church followed by a sunset cruise. Monday the guys and I went deep sea fishing- but sadly didn’t catch a dang thing! Next was zip lining through the jungle (I totally went upside down because they told me everyone did it before me, false! whatever-YOLO!), riding ATVs to a waterfall with his folks, cruising out to Tortuga Island where we snorkeled, hiked around and road a banana float that slung us off and visiting a monkey preserve and private beach. Aren’t you a little bit tired just reading that!? For the most part we cooked and ate in but one night got out for a fancy meal to celebrate a few of our birthdays. We woke up early and went to bed early. The wildlife was WILD. We had two huge red parrots living outside our room, the ground was littered with crabs, frogs, iguanas-you name it! We saw sloths, fed monkeys, harassed crabs and the last night was frightened to see a 6f’ croc on the beach near our house! The vegetation was also out of this world. I could go on for days about the plants like the giant monsteras and species of palms I could never have imagined. We only got a small taste of the Costa Rica and are set to go back and explore the Caribbean side.
