“Travel Sparks Our Imagination,
Feeds our Curiosity &
Reminds Us Of How Much We All Have In Common” -Deborah Lloyd
If you couldn’t tell by my Instagram pictures and captions, I left a little piece of my heart in Panama last week. It started as a trip solely based on Panama Fashion Week and ended up being a love affair with the most beautiful country. My girls and I- ate, shopped, DANCED, watched the prettiest shows, played tourists, met the most talented designers, and experienced and learned more about the Panama culture. This posts covers the basics, you know; the outfits, the food, the MUST-DO’s, and why I am already planning to go back soon!
Let’s Talk Outfits…
SHOP MY LOOKS
In case you were wondering, YOU NEED A SEE THRU SKIRT!
also, the under shorts are attached and cover all the important stuff.
This dress reminds me of the song HAVANA Nights and I wanna wear it everyday. haha
I wish Layering all of Lux and Luca jewelry was a hobby- her stuff is amazing and it’s what every IT girl needs.
Mixing and matching or I guess you could say CLASHING was one of the best parts of planning my looks for Panama Fashion Week.
Also, these shoes are designer dupes were $50 and I am kinda obsessed with them.
Now, let’s chat about the Shows…
I was flippin’ BLOWN AWAY by how talented the designers were that presented during Panama Fashion Week. It was an opportunity that I was so grateful for from the start but I left completely BLESSED by getting to see the beautiful creations and styles that swept the runway. Here are some highlights, darlings…
The FLIPPING FOOD and the MUST DO’S
Let’s be honest you haven’t actually had an empanadas or arepas unless you got spoiled with a plethora of them somewhere in South America. Darlings, Panama SPOILED us ROTTEN. The food was amazing, the wine was a’ flowin, and I can promise you I never left a meal unsatisfied. One of my favorite areas to eat, drink, dance, explore, take photos, and just BE was hands down Casco Viejo.
And mandatory STOP at Franklin Panama– the MOST gorgeous shop right in Casca Viejo. but warning, it will be VERY hard not to buy something. They sell the most detailed, stunning pieces and share such special stories about their brand and how they create each piece.
This is Claire and she makes all the bracelets! Seriously, sweetest human. She stole a little piece of my heart.
Actually, she stole all our hearts, haha!
Also, be sure to check out my blogger babes Panama Travel posts too! We all had such a good time collaborating and experiencing this amazing city together!
Darlings, find your Tribe and then TRAVEL with them.
these gals made my trip to Panama unforgettable.
And if you need a tribe to travel with…WE ARE ALWAYS DOWN! haha
Basically, my loves…
if anyone invites you to Panama- SAY YES.
DON’T feel guilty ordering a second round of empanadas (too DAMN good)
Rock the mix and match patterns even after you leave
Enjoy their culture and take back some of that sweet sweet hospitality that sometimes we forget about
I can’t wait to bring my Zack back to this beautiful country, but until next time. Thank you Panama for embracing me, sharing your world of fashion, feeding me perfectly, and opening up my eyes to a beautiful culture.
