Escape To Costa Rica

Back in '09 my husband stayed in Costa Rica for several weeks on a business trip. He fell in love with the natural beauty there and promised me he'll take me to visit someday. Looking through the photos he took, I just had to choose Costa Rica as my dream destination for the theme of this week's Friday's Fancies. The serene ocean vistas inspired me to put together a simple blue and tan look that would be perfect for strolling along the beach with my honey. In the past I've worn tees and shorts to the beach (as seen below), but maybe next time I'll get to wear something like this lovely J.Crew tunic dress. I wouldn't care what I was wearing though, as long as I got to experience Costa Rica with my baby! In the meantime, I am very much looking forward to the massages we have scheduled for Saturday. Have an amazing weekend everyone, or as they say over there: pura vida!
