A few months ago, my best friends and I escaped for a fun-filled Spring Break trip to Puerto Rico. If you've been around for a while, you'll already know that going on a "real" Spring Break trip was on my 101 in 1001 list, so I was so excited that we got to cross it off.
We actually didn't stay in San Juan like most people do, but we stayed on the West coast in Rincón, a very beachy-surfer town, and it was the CUTEST! We did, however, venture into San Juan for two days of our trip: one, to explore Old San Juan, and the other to visit Al Junque and to stay in a resort before our flight the next morning.
This was March, so remember Connecticut was freezing when we left, so I embraced every second of the San Juan sun while we were there, using it as an excuse to break out my summer wardrobe.
As you know, I live in Trinidad and Tobago, so "summer" for me doesn't exist, because like Puerto Rico, it's summer year-round. So I knew for this trip, and to accommodate for the heat we were about to face, I would need to pack thin layers, linens, fundamentals and tons of hats and sunglasses to protect my face from the bright sunshine.
That meant picking up a floppy beach hat before my trip, and because I had little to no summer clothing packed with me in Connecticut, I needed to go shopping. But once again, I was ballin' on a budget, and I knew that the likelihood of me losing this hat on this trip was incredibly high (I'm a mess, guys!), I hit my go-to budget-friendly store, Forever 21 to pick one up.
For Old San Juan, I knew I was facing the beautiful cobblestone streets and tons of walking, so I made sure to pick my comfiest (and favorite) sandals, my Jacks! And with the colorful buildings and walls I was gonna be finding, I opted for a more neutral look: navy and white stripes, because you can never go wrong with stripes!
Add a pop of color with my crossbody, and tons of laughs with my best friends and it was hands down my favorite trip! I'll definitely be sharing more photos with you soon, of all the cool places we went to! Let's just say I want to go back!
