Hello, everyone! Today I am putting together my wardrobe as I begin to pack for our trip.It’s only a week-long trip, but since it is pretty hot, you tend to go through clothing pretty quickly.
Here is my formula for a week at a warm destination:
- Bathing suit + beach cover (****most important!***)
- Flip-flops for the pool
- Three pairs of shorts
- Five tops
- Two pairs of shoes
- Two sundresses
- One tote
- Three basic tee shirts (for lounging)
- Pajamas and underwear
So, in order of importance, here are some photos of the pieces I am packing. First, the bathing suit, cover up, hat, tote (for carrying things to the pool) and sunglasses:
I will also throw in the black romper I styled in yesterday’s post as it is very versatile as both a beach cover and a cute outfit.
Next are the short outfits. It is definitely too warm for jeans or long pants, but I will probably wear some crops on the flight.
I always pack basic colors, and here you can see there are white, black and denim shorts. That allows me to mix and match my tops and tees. I have included three basic tanks and tees shirts to wear in the condo where there is air conditioning.
Next are some cute tops to wear with the shorts. I like to bring out the colors in Mexico! So you can see I am packing the stripes and floral tops you’ve seen before. I noticed that they are all from Old Navy except the tan floral, which is from Stitch Fix.
Here you can see my tan cross-body bag which I will use when we go to dinner or walking around in Cabo. It doesn’t take up much room in the suitcase, an important consideration.
For shoes, I will pack only two pairs of sandals–one pair is my comfort sandals by Kork-Ease, and the other is my Franco Sarto leather pair.
Since we will definitely be going to a couple of our favorite restaurants–I can’t wait to share them with you!–I will also need a couple of sundresses. I chose my white eyelet one from Old Navy, my chambray embroidered sundress from Stitch Fix, and added my beach cover-up here since I can also wear it as a dress. A big plus when packing!
I threw my kimono topper over the white dress. These tops are a great addition to your wardrobe on trips as you can wear them in the air conditioning, and they are lightweight and easy to pack and carry. I may actually wear this one on the plane.
This may look like a lot, but it actually folds into a pretty small bundle. I’ll show you my suitcase in another post so you can see how easily it fits.
Well, I am really getting excited! We stay at Playa Grande in Cabo San Lucas, a beautiful hotel, and I will share lots of pictures when we get there.
