And just because this photo was too good not to share - I present to you.....Maree and the bee.
This is my final post from my time in Costa Rica, and I wore this outfit to go horseback riding and swimming. We rode horseback into the rain forest, up to a waterfall and then got to spend the afternoon swimming at the waterfall. The waterfall was located deep in the rain forest, so I wanted to wear something that covered my legs to help with the bugs but that wouldn't suffocate me in the sweltering humidity. These Mara Hoffman pants were perfect since they are a lightweight scarf material, so they worked both as my outfit and a bathing suit cover up. I wore my second Triangl bikini to go swimming and absolutely love the color combination of this one. I purchased a M in the top which fit me perfectly (I am a 32E), but I bought a S in the bottoms which was a tad too small for me. It wasn't small enough for me to want to return it, but I did buy a second Triangl bikini for my trip and sized up in the bottom to a M, which fit me perfectly. Luckily during our excursion, I managed to make it out of there without any bug bites - but that doesn't mean those suckers weren't everywhere. The last photo basically sums up my entire time in Costa Rica - constantly running away and swatting at bugs. I don't even know if calling them bugs is appropriate since some of them were as big/long as my hand! Yowsa! I felt like if the horse couldn't get me to the waterfall, I could hitch a ride on one of the bugs. But I managed to escape unscathed with no bites, however I am still pretty scarred from the 10 inch gecko that we found in our room the first night. Poor guy was just trying to get to the 6 inch grasshopper that also found its way in. Either way they couldn't stay without forking over their share of the room fee, so sadly they had to go. Next time make a reservation like the rest of us.
