What I am packing for my Mexico vacation

Have you ever been to a place that makes your soul come alive? When I was 19, I traveled to Mexico and Guatemala with a friend to go to a spanish language school in Guatemala. Because her passport never arrived, she had to return home but we relaxed in Playa del Carmen, Mexico for a week before we were due to leave. I continued on alone and when I returned, I visited a magical beach called Tulum. Yes, the Riviera Maya is dotted with large luxury and glittery resorts but Tulum maintains it’s natural laid back vibe. 2 years ago, David and I escaped for a romantic holiday over Thanksgiving and he we sick with cold and flu. My poor babe was miserable for an entire week. We stayed at La Revé (which was lovely and I highly recommend it) and took a day trip to Tulum. He surprisingly recovered briefly and when we got to the top of the cliffs at the Mayan ruins overlooking the bright turquoise sea, his soul came alive as well. We languished for the day-eating, sipping, reading, napping and frolicking in the ocean before returning to Playa.

Since that vacation, I vowed that we would return to Tulum and soak it all up again. Reservations are made and I can’t wait to share our adventures with you. This time we are staying at Sanara Tulum, a luxury eco chic hotel and wellness center and a premier yoga retreat studio. 

But first a girl has to decide what to wear. Ok, so this is my dream suitcase. 
First up are the swimsuits. I’m a sucker for anything ruffled and I’m dying to try out the high waist bottoms of this American Apparel suit. So fun!

Then the cover ups…Because a girl has got to hop on the bike and head to downtown Tulum for a fresh lunch of fish tacos and margaritas. Can you keep a secret? I already scooped the J. Crew white eyelet tunic. It is on sale with an extra 25% off with code “SALELOVE”. It was practically irresponsible not to get it.
I’ll need a straw fedora to keep the sun out of my eyes.
I’m loving this black and white one from BCBG MAXAZRIA.

Finally, the beach bags. Seriously, I have a problem. Why is this the largest group? I am a sucker for a straw beach bag. Give me a market tote and I am a happy happy girl. I’ve had my eye on the Mar y Sol (every single one of them) for months now. This is the perfect excuse to grab mine. The little pom poms are too adorable. Decisions, decisions!
