Traipsing Through Santo Domingo

Traipsing Through Santo Domingo

“The larger the island of knowledge, the longer the shoreline of wonder.”
― Ralph W. Sockman

So I am finally back from my trip to the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico wasn’t originally scheduled but when staying on a sailboat you go where the winds and sea take you :). Because, I left the Dominican early I missed Carnival. Guess that means I will just have to take another trip!  Maybe next year? In an attempt to make up for the lack of Carnival pictures I did my own Look on Location shoot in Santo Domingo.

First, about Santo Domingo:

From where we were staying Santo Domingo was only about 30 minutes away by car. A few people had told us not to go for three days that one day was more than enough. At first, I thought maybe they were right but really you have to peel back the layers of any city and step away from the tourist attractions and that’s when magic appears. The old part of the city is unbelievably charming with fantastic architecture, wonderful food, and incredibly friendly people. I spent the first day strolling the tourist locals but then decided to step off the beaten path and explore a bit more of Old Town. It was unbelievably quiet and the houses were gorgeous – many in stages of repair. It is obvious that the DR government is investing quite a bit of money to make Old Town a true gem.

The Outfit:

It was hot out and light colors and fabrics were my go to. I absolutely love this shirt from Haute Hippie. At home I would probably wear it with just a bra underneath but given that it is see through and I was a visitor in another country I decided while out shooting to layer it over a simple tank-top. The back of it is absolutely adorable and super conducive to catching a much needed breeze! And, who doesn’t love delicate flower details that aren’t overly feminine (I do!). The skirt from Nordstrom is and has everything I could want. Let’s talk about the pleats for a minute. Love that there are only four – two in the front and two in the back. It is perfectly crisp without being overly fussy. Plus, it has pockets! In a light blue shade it really works perfectly in any season. Keeping my accessories simple I chose a ring from Forever 21, Joie A La Plage Sable Slip on Sandals in Mustard, my favorite sunglasses from Tom Ford and a bag from Target. Accessorizing should be about fun and not breaking the bank :).
