Dominican Republic Dreamin’: What I Packed

Dominican Republic, 2009

In the next eight weeks, I’ll be collaborating with Harrison’s Fine Caribbean Jewelers by sharing my experiences in one of my favorite places in the world- the Dominican Republic! The DR holds dear to my heart for a number of reasons, a few of them being “firsts.” It was the first country I had my first missions trip abroad and the first place I dipped my feet into the fashion industry as a visual merchandise intern at Harrison’s. I also met and bonded with a group of girls from a local church, some that I still keep in contact with over the last nine years.

Today’s post is on “What I Packed for the DR.” I knew that the weather was similar to the Philippines- hot and humid. As any summer vacation to a tropical country would consist of, I packed shorts to pair with tank tops, dresses breezy enough for the humidity, and bathing suits for the days we would spend at the beach. Accessories were never overlooked either whether it was beaded hoop earrings or barrettes for my hair. Speaking of hair, I also brought my curling iron, which was unnecessary since my hair of ringlets would deflate and wave out the minute I stepped outside! Oh well, beachy waves are always in, right?

Here are pictures from my trips in 2007 and 2009!

Stay tuned for the next “D.R. Dreamin'” post!

“And I will be to her a wall of fire all around, declares the LORD, and I will be the glory in her midst.”
