This afternoon we’re traveling to Costca Rica with one my favorite fashion bloggers, Jessie from Style and Pepper. Jessie and I have been bumping into each other quite a bit recently — Alt Summit, NYFW and this past weekend at Texas Style Council. I always love seeing her and hope that our streak continues. Make sure to check her blog for some amazing styling and thrift-envy.

For “Spring Break”, Jessie will be traveling to the La Mariposa Hotel in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica. Her travel companion — Mr. S&P himself! 🙂 Her sweet hubby, Gerard.

“Gerard and I went to several different areas of Costa Rica for our Honeymoon almost 5 years ago, and we’ve been dying to go back ever since!  Manuel Antonio was our favorite beach town… we felt so at home there that we didn’t want to leave and we still half-joke about making it our home someday.  A little Spring Break getaway together would be an awesome treat, and thanks to Katie, I’ve been dreaming about it all week!  The outfit I picked out would be the perfect thing to throw on over a bathing suit for a morning of shopping and eating in town, and then when we got tired, we could just plop ourselves down in the sand for an afternoon siesta in the sun!”” – Jessie

Of course we knew Jessie would be super stylish on vacation. Check out her packing wish list. I don’t know if she’d plan on wearing these all together, but I would. Love it!
