Neon Caribbean Colors


You might recall how some colors trigger memories of my childhood in Puerto Rico (see here). Well, this time it wasn’t just a memory. I finally went back to my little island and relived it all again. Of course, I wasted no time to bust out the neon bright colors. I wore this lively ensemble to an impromptu boat ride around the southwest coast of the island. Not exactly a boat tour type of outfit (one needs a bikini when coasting along a Caribbean paradise). But it turned out perfectly because all around me the vivid colors of my outfit were reflected in the scenery.

The boat tour gave a coastal view of La Parguera. It’s a beautiful little fishing village in the town of Lajas. These picturesque houses sit floating along the bay like if nobody told the owners that it’s quite strange to have a floating house completely running and stocked like a regular home. But then again, I’m the one living in a land locked city and they are on the coast of a tropical island paradise. Obviously one of us is doing something wrong. I fear that might be me.













What I’m Rockin’:
Shirt – Old Navy
Shorts – Indigo Rein via Marshalls
Necklace – Sofia Vergara via Kmart
Bracelet – Forever21
Purse – Target (on sale for $4!!)

  3. Oh yes! Definitely there are colours that remind me of my childhood, especially pink. My mom made so many pink dresses for me!
