What To Pack For A Trip To Mexico

What to pack for a trip to Mexico - Adorable dresses, swimwear, shoes, accessories and more! Everything you need for an upcoming holiday this Summer.

Mexico is a place where we love to go as a family – we’ve been to Cabo, Cancun and Emma & her boyfriend have been to Puerto Vallarta! What we love most about Mexico is that it’s close to the U.S., (especially California) it’s affordable, the people are amazing, and it gives us that exotic vibe that we love. 

Many of you may have visited during Spring Break but we have found that traveling to Mexico during the shoulder season (January-February or June-July) gives you the best deals! More money for cute resort wear if you ask me. :) 

Mexico can be extremely hot & humid… especially during the summer which means lots of easy, breezy, cute dresses, rompers, jumpsuits, are a must. I tend to live in flip-flops, sandals and wedges most of the time along with dangle earrings, gold necklaces, and wrap bracelets. I don’t shy away from fun hats or sunglasses to complete a cute outfit.

Today I’ve rounded up some of my must-have Cancun favorites that I brought with me for this trip along with some of the most adorable resort wear that we’re loving now.

 Let me know in the comments what you’re wearing on your beach vacation this year.  I’m always taking notes. :)

Kristy

Carry-On Bag
We have tested out so many different travel bags & this has to be our absolute favorite to carry onboard a flight. It's large enough to fit everything into it while also being small enough to fit on top of your suitcase and under the seat in front of you. The strap is very comfy and it allows you to slide the bag onto your luggage handles. It also has many pockets to fit TONS inside. Durable material. Pricey but this is a bag you'll keep forever. Many color options.

  1. Silly, but i always pack a couple of Hair “claw” clips to hold the blackout curtains closed for those days we want to sleep in. Often times the curtains have a gap or won’t stay closed eNough. It woRks great to ensure PRIVACY as well.

    1. Great tip Robin! That’s an old Flight Attendant trick! :) I always do that and never thought to mention it. Thanks for the reminder.. Hugs! xo

  2. I love to carry an insulated makeup bag. It always survives the heat especially for skincare. Thanks for the blog, I always learn so much from you and love your style.

    Have a great day!
