What I’m Packing For Costa Rica!

It’s so close I can almost feel the tropical air…in just a few more days I’ll be on a plane, en route to Costa Rica. I will be joining the 10 lucky winners of the Pura Vida Getaway sweeps for a week of yoga, surfing, wellness, and relaxing at the Villa Cortes Nosara Retreat Center. The weather will be hot, and from yoga sessions to surf lessons, this trip is going to be an active one. I’m excited to bring along some of our new FP Movement gear, which will be perfect for all of the exciting activities we have planned. Here’s what I’m packing for our Pura Vida Getaway!

beach outfit

For the beach: Marrakesh Dress, Sleeveless One Piece, Jasmine Crossbody, Santiago Sneaker, Waning Crescent Necklace, Best of the Best Hard Bangles

The Marrakesh Dress was one of the first items on my packing list. This dress is comfortable, lightweight, and perfect to throw on over a bathing suit. Plus, the soft material makes it easy to pack in a suitcase without taking up a lot of room. Pair it with the Jasmine Crossbody and some jewels, and it transforms into the perfect night out look!

For Yoga: Half Moon Tank, Cody Top, Ventura Pant, Slip On Charmer Sandal, Tova Printed Beach Towel

I’m really looking forward to the daily yoga sessions we have planned with Rachel Brathen. I can’t wait to try out some of our new Movement product, and I have a feeling I’m going to be living in yoga gear for most of the trip. I love the warm color palette the Cody Top and Ventura Pant create when worn together – perfect for evening yoga as the sun sets :)


For exploration: We The Free Strappy Peplum Tank, Black Pearl Pants, Johannes Backpack, Lotus Layered Necklace, Slip On Charmer Sandal

For exploring nearby towns or the nature around us, a comfortable outfit and backpack is key. You can keep a camera safe in the backpack while you walk around, and these Black Pearl Pants can be worn out and about or as a beach cover up. I love the side slit detail!
