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. :)
I brought this adorable dress on my trip.. The style looks great on so many different body types it's amazing. I ordered the XS/S. Tons of color options - I love it so much I have it in 2 different colors.
This bag is SO great. I bought it at the gift shop at my Cancun hotel & it's beyond perfect for a beach vacation. I love the white tassels because they go with everything. Really great price point too.
I brought two of my wrap bracelets with me on this trip & they ended up being the perfect accessory for all my looks! I love this style bracelet because it's both dressy/casual and the price point is low. This brand many more styles & color options as well.
I always like to bring a couple of pairs of pretty statement earrings that will match everything I bring - usually in gold/pearl style. I brought this pair with me to Mexico and they looked AMAZING with most everything. They aren't too heavy, the price is right, and they're classic in style. Love!
Emma & I always like to bring a few cover ups with us on any beach vacation - most are dress style which always look cute no matter what you're doing. I also make sure to have at least 1 or 2 coverups in black or white. They're classic and look great with all color/designs/style bathing suits.
Crucial & a must-have if you like to pack your jewelry in an organized way. I love this bag for all trips, especially abroad! I always love bringing a few pairs of necklaces, bracelets, and earrings along with me. This organizer has saved me. Great price point too!
After a few days of being in the sun, sometimes your skin needs a fresh peel. This amazing treatment works really well at getting rid of all of the dead skin! Miracle solution - Emma and I use this weekly.
I have a pair of vintage Chanel sunnies that I bring with me on vacay but I LOVE this pair of Raybans. They are adorable & look so good on everyone! Emma has them and I love them. It comes in a variety of colors.
Love love love these! Wet bags are a beach necessity to store sunscreen/wet bathing suits in after you swim/ or lay out all day..It keeps everything wet inside the bag and will keep everything outside of it dry.
This cover up is everything... So adorable & can be used as a kimono cover-up for the pool or as a scarf to drape over your shoulders with a little dress & hat. The colors on this scarf are soft and beautiful.
I bring tons of colorful sundresses with me when I travel to Mexico.. I wear them constantly throughout the trip. Whether you're on an excursion, going for a walk on the beach, using as a cover up, or heading to dinner - they work incredibly well for all occasions. This dress is on sale.
The best way to pack! These keep me organized which in turn makes me very happy! I love using packing cubes. It's amazing how much more you can get in your bag with the help of these cubes. Emma gave this set to me for Mother's Day & they are so pretty. On sale now!
Emma and I both love to read on the plane and while relaxing at the beach. We always bring a few books on vacation and this read (one of Oprah's must have beach reads for this Summer!) looks amazing. Can't wait to dive in!
I brought this bag with me to Mexico & it looks ADORABLE with everything! I'm a huge fan & the price is great. I received many compliments on it and I'm surprised at how much I can fit inside. It works for both day and night.
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.
I've shared my favorite self-tanner before and have to share it again, I love it that much. The color tan that comes from this tanning mouse looks so real! I'm all about fake tans while on vacation to protect my skin. As a matter of fact, I use a self tanner all summer long.
If you're someone who likes wearing two-pieces then I definitely recommend getting something fun like this adorable lemon bikini. It's perfect for a vacation and lemon everything is so popular right now.
