As some of you might know, Panama celebrates Carnivals every year. The whole country has several days off from work and they use that time to either rest or party. The "typical" Panamanian carnivals involves a lot of partying, drinking, dancing, and getting wet with water. I'm too lazy for that kind of celebration, so I usually go to the beach or to the mountainside to just relax.

This year I am spending Carnivals with my boyfriend and his family at their beach house. I'm super excited to just rest and have a good time :)

Does your country celebrate Carnivals? If not, have you ever traveled to a country during their Carnival season?

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this orange top:

  2. Oh pretty! I love how you have a long skirt and a longer shirt but still manage to not look like one blob of long-li-ness.

  3. Love your outfit! The blue and orange combo is fun and fresh. My husband and I just flew back from Panama City today and had the chance to check out Carnaval on Saturday night. It was a bit crazy, and the woman behind the desk at our hotel was very concerned that we would be pickpocketed, but we stayed safe and had a great time. It was definitely crazy, but we didn't want to miss the opportunity to see such a huge celebration. Have a great time at the beach :)

  5.  Hey there Kim! Hahahaha, yeah Crazy is definitely a word to describe Carnivals here in Panama. That's why I don't really like celebrating it, it's too wild for me. I can completely understand if you felt uncomfortable wherever it is you went, so don't feel bad about it if you did (I feel super uncomfortable and I'm a local!). I hope you had a great time nonetheless here in Panama while you were at the beach and the mountainside!
