my packing list to cabo
I overpack. Plain and simple.
A weekend trip, maybe not so much. I can pack everything in a carry on for a short trip and that deserves a pat on the back. Going somewhere for more than 3 days? Hello bags 1, 2, 3 and 4.
I knew Mexico wouldn't be different. 1 free checked bag courtesy of American Express, I was already winning. So what did I pack for a week in Mexico and what should you take?
*Note - I still don't believe I packed enough but oh well. I'll just pack more for the next trip.
3 maxi dresses (1 which I wore as a skirt) - florals are huge right now and Forever has a great selection
1 two-piece set - Tobi has you set
1 maxi skirt
1 pair of relaxed fit pants (used as a cover-up)
1 pair of jeans (ripped, relaxed fit) - you can't go wrong with American Eagle
1 pair of denim shorts
1 pair of black high-waisted shorts
4 crop tops + 1 strapless top - like a lace crop top
1 button down
1 cape (used as a cover-up also) - must have for any female going on vacation
2 pair of leggings (you gotta plan like you're going to work out on vacation regardless if you actually do or not)
A couple tshirts to work out in (again, who cares if you do or not)
1 straw hat
1 baseball cap
7 bathing suits (I know this sounds like much but I like to have options, especially when it comes to my tan lines) - this top is a fav of mine
1 pair of heels
1 pair of wedges
3 pairs of sandals - including these
1 sweater (for those cool nights but in Mexico, everywhere has a poncho for you if you get cold)
Other items include:
A variety of purses- shaped clutches are super big this season, like this avocado one.
This seems like a lot I know but when you think about it - 8 days, 7 nights - you'll be wearing a lot of clothes.
