From sleepwear to being out on the town, here are some of the picks that I wore while I was on a recent trip to San Juan del Sur with Traverse Journeys (great trip by the way!!). Here are my choices for what to wear in Nicaragua.
What to Wear in Nicaragua
Waking up was fairly easy! We started each day at Elementos del Sur at 6:15 with meditation followed by yoga at 6:30. It sounds early, but I was really aided by the fact that my normal time zone was 2 hours ahead of San Juan del Sur. So, when I woke up a bit early, I was sure to grab a coffee and relax for a bit before I headed out for my morning stretches.
I ADORE this little nightgown from Free People. I feel as though it’s modest enough to head out and grab a coffee. I’ve also had it for a while, and it still looks so nice and fresh. How great it is when a piece still looks new after washing several times!
I really enjoyed waking up to yoga led by Angelena (aka Sun Drop Yogi). She was sweet and encouraging. A patterned Johnny Was bag was perfect for carrying yoga essentials – mat, towel, and water. I topped my pre-owned yoga pants with a Z-Supply shirt and Free People bralette. Too cute!
We encountered water a lot while in San Juan del Sur. So when hitting the beach, it is an obvious question of what to wear in Nicaragua! From surfing to lounging by the pool, I took a variety of swimsuits.
The floppy sun hat is my go-to! The top is from Dylan and offers a bit of sun protection while allowing air to flow through. I thought it was a cute combo for sure.
Truth be told, I felt so urban in this outfit! It may have been my fauxhawk that I accented with a kimono clip, but I thought the whole look was fun for going out and about.
I paired my FAVORITE top – a Johnny Was silk that I bought a few years ago – with jean shorts that I made into cutoffs myself. A fringe belt, Lily & Laura bracelets, and L’Artiste shoes complete the look. And again, my Johnny Was bag does double duty to hold souvenirs. So fun!
A Night Out
After a day of surfing and touring, a fresh shower and comfy dress do the trick. This one by Effie’s Heart is made of jersey and packs so well. It’s wrinkle free and oh so comfy! The L’Artiste flats also are a comfy choice for hitting the dance floor. And, of course, a vintage scarf helps to tame my locks with all of the humidity out there.
I hope this encourages you to find your own looks that you love for traveling.
