I hope this finds you well! I am back home from a wonderful vacation to Puerto Rico with my husband. I really feel rested and after coming home, I recognized just how much I needed that time away. I absolutely loved Puerto Rico, especially the colonial architecture and palm-lined beaches. For a weekend or a week-long getaway, “la isla del enchanto,” as it’s affectionately called by locals, is definitely a go-to destination!
On day one, we explored the historic Old San Juan and it can be summed up in a single word: colorful. With only two days to spend in OSJ, I wanted to see and do as much as possible. With the help of a lot of travel tips, I had an incredible day exploring the best of Old San Juan.
My first stop was El Castillo San Felipe del Morro, more commonly known as El Morro. Built in the 1500s as a military structure, it is one of the most picturesque destinations in all of Puerto Rico offering gorgeous views of the Caribbean. Apart from the historic value, I liked the cool sea breeze, open meadows and calmness.
Coming to my outfit, ah, I am in loooove! Tribal print motifs would surely be one of the big trends this spring/summer! I spotted this dress on Shein website and knew it would be a summer hit in my wardrobe repertoire. But I thought: “oh gosh, I won’t be able to pull that off. It’s too boho for me.” But, this is a versatile piece plus, I loved the tribal print and the vibrant color. So, I had to give it a shot. Definitely a showstopper! (And it leaves plenty of eat/drink/be merry room since it’s not cinched at the waist – YAY!). I paired it with a yellow cross body bag, my favorite gold gladiator lace-ups and tassel earrings to give the look a little more sass. Hope you liked it.
Thank you so much for stopping by, ladies! Have a great Memorial day weekend!
