I’ve had Nicaragua on my mind all summer. Maderas Village our final destination. Little did we know we’d be doing a lot more adventuring that sticking by the local beaches. I couldn’t wait to capture the country’s untouched beauty and colorful culture. And love any excuse to pour hot sauce on just about anything. A bottle perfectly set on every table. I knew that the country wasn’t as developed as some of Central America, but I was ready for a wild adventure in all of it’s rawness. For these types of adventures, I always travel in jeans. They survive just about anything in any circumstance. The more torn up the better. True Religion remains one of the softest denims out there, and you cannot beat their perfect slim fit. Being a California native, my style has always revolved around denim. Of every single wash. It’s currently rain season in Nicaragua, and I knew I’d be living in some good denim blues..whether it be just spread across the hammock at our casita or galloping on a horse at sundown. I packed my 2 favorite pairs. The Audrey boyfriend and Mid-Rise boot cut. Both getting better with age. I would immediately stepped into my jeans with my bikini on after getting out of the swell while surfing to warm up. Easily transitioning into the city nightlife of San Juan Del Sur by throwing on a vintage tee. We did as the locals did. We rode in the open back of the truck speeding down the narrow streets, holding onto our hats. Ate huevo rancheros every morning complete with a side of tortillas. We even rented a dune buggy for an afternoon zooming through the dirt roads, discovering secret beaches and passing the local farms filled with cows, chickens, and pigs. Traveling somewhere so foreign, where life is still so simple, is the perfect escape.

More from my True Religion denim diaries coming soon.
