I’m in Costa Rica right now at the Four Seasons Resort, doing some travel research for you lovely readers and right before my trip I was on the search for the perfect vacation essentials. From a straw hat to a light weight cover-up, I wanted to pack light for this trip. A striped bag to carry all my beach essentials, like a white (and flattering) scalloped bathing suit and Dita sunglasses. And how perfect is this black asymmetrical dress from Little Joe Woman to slip on before dinner? If you have a vacation coming up, you won’t want to miss all my favorite picks, as I’ve searched and searched to find you (and myself) the perfect vacation essentials. Just be sure to add a great book or your favorite magazines. Hope you’re having a wonderful week!
