As much as I love a good vacation, sometimes I think I might like preparing for a trip even more. Planning activities, scheduling flights, and making packing lists is my idea of a good time. So, you better believe that ever since we decided to take this Mexico trip, I’ve been busy compiling my official Ladies Trip to Mexico Packing List.
Most people I know hate packing but for me, it just builds the anticipation of the trip. (Confession: I started my packing list two months ago.) If you’re one of those people who just dreads packing, this post from one of my favorite bloggers has some great tips.
As I mentioned last week, we’re staying at an all-inclusive resort for the first few days, then we’re switching to a regular hotel for the remainder of the trip. This gives us a chance to both lay by the pool without having to think about a damn thing other than our next drink, as well as the opportunity to take a day trip to Tulum and explore the city a bit.
So, with a general schedule of lounging by the pool, hitting the beach, a day trip to Tulum to see the ruins, and a few nights out, here are some of the new things we’ve added to our Ladies Trip to Mexico Packing List:
- Extra Cheeky Bikini Bottom
- Trekkie Short
- Suede Sandal Espadrilles
- Cropped Tank
- Drawstring Backpack
- Floral Caftan
- Scoopback One-Piece
- Tie Dye Sundress
- Slide Sandals
Of course, we’re bringing more than just these nine items, but they’re a good representation of what we’re packing. Our vacation selves are all about plenty of breezy dresses, swimsuits, and fun sandals.
P.S. It took a LOT of trial and error before I landed on that J. Crew one-piece. We have an upcoming post covering all of the different options I tried out along the way. Anyone else missing Victoria’s Secret’s swimwear line?
