Why I Think Dressing Nice is Self-Care

Who do you think women dress for? I have heard different answers to this question. If the woman wears clothes that accentuate her body, like bodycon dresses or low-cut tops; some quickly assume that she dresses for men. If she chooses colorful prints and A-line dresses (think Jess from New Girl), some claim she falls into a category of women who dress for other women; hoping to be recognized for their fashion sense.

Visiting Facebook's Headquarters in a Maxi Dress

I imagined the building would look like their logo: blue and corporate. Executives wearing ties, glancing at their watches and rushing to the next meeting. Like many, I heard rumors of how wonderful companies like Facebook and Google are. But they were just rumors, and can not compare to actually being there.

Summer Denim

Nothing like shorts that say “Hotter than hell” to make you feel proud. What a find! I mean, how often do you get a pair of shorts that tell you what the weather is like? ;) Not that you would need them; just trust your sweaty palms and forehead and assume the temperature is above 90 °F.

The Cozy Cardigan

On the first of January at midnight, the temperature in Columbia was -21°C; today we are at -8°C and I'm really glad that it’s “warmer”. However, it is still necessary to wear several layers of clothing and coats. One of the pieces that I have used the most this week is this Charlotte Russe cardigan that my sister gave me.

KS Roadtrip: Monument Rocks

We walked around the monument for a few minutes, and then sat down to watch the sunset. The sun descended slowly, through “the needle”, an oval-shaped gap in between the rocks. The colors of the horizon as the sun sets, and the moon begins to shine taking its place, were simply beautiful. We were amazed, we were marveled, even after sunset, when everything got dark, we wanted to stay.

Santa Teresa

It wasn’t easy to get there, but without a doubt, it was a lot harder to leave. We lived in Cartago in 2014, when we first visited Santa Teresa. We took two buses and a ferry, and we would do it again and again. See, this is the place where you actually go to relax. Now that I think about it, that last sentence will probably be repeated in the next posts we will share with you, I guess we relax too much, or not enough.

Cold Days, Costa Rica

Choosing what to wear on a cold or windy day is always a challenge. I love pictures where clothes wave with the wind. On the other hand, if I am wearing a loose short dress or skirt, it may get very uncomfortable. On this throw back post of a trip to the Irazu volcano, I made sure I was warm by wearing booties and a sweater, and to add some movement I designed a long skirt.
