I looked at the calendar today, and I couldn't BELIEVE that I have been back from the Dominican for almost a month already?!!
I sat myself right down at the computer and started writing this post. I had a reader ask me shortly after I got back for some tips on what to bring on a sunny vacay, and I promised to get this out before she left in February... Hope I'm not too late!
Every time I go away, I write about the thrifted items that I bring (Cuba, Dominican, and Madrid)...So this trip to the Domican Republic wouldn't be any different. :)
Apart from a sunhat, a few pieces of jewellery, and a couple of pairs of sandals, these are the thrifted items that were in my Domican closet (this year):
A couple of maxi skirts. And a couple of black tanks. This maxi skirt I wore over leggings on the plane and was able to easily take the leggings off when we landed in Punta Cana. The tank I wore under a black sweater and jean jacket, which I wanted to have in case the evenings were cool. I never needed it.
Skirt- Value Village $7.99
A couple of strapless maxi dresses. I love these for throwing on for breakfast or for pulling over a bathing suit. I also love that these can be folded over and worn with a tank if you'd prefer to wear it as a skirt. Extra versatile!
Flowered Maxi- $12.99 Value Village
A couple of comfy, cotton, easily-rolled and fun-to-wear dresses for the evenings.
Top Dress- $7.99 Talize (also seen here)
Bottom (2 pieces) Top- Castoff from friend, FREE
Bottom- Skirt $5.99 (also seen here)
And, of COURSE, I packed a couple more maxi dresses (my faves) that had straps. I love the comfort, that they can be dressed up or down, and that they can be rolled up to take up very little room in the suitcase.
Top Dress- Value Village 50% off $9.99
Bottom Dress- Value Village $12.99
And here is the Just One bracelets that my sister brought for my birthday gift. Love.
Well, thanks for reading about what I had in my Dominican Closet, friends.
If you are heading somewhere warm soon....don't forget the sunscreen! :)
