Packing List: Tulum


On Friday, my friend Alex and I head to Tulum for a few days and I couldn’t be more happy about it. This weather, coupled with feeling just a tad burnt out make this the perfect time for a quick little getaway. I have a lot going on at work so only took Friday and Monday off, but it is a pretty quick flight and we’ll have a full three days on the beach. I’m making it my mission to pack as light as possible – cramming everything into my Cuyana Overnight Bag. But it shouldn’t be hard – all I really need are bikinis, coverups, and yoga clothes. I’m actually bringing just one pair of sandals – and (seriously) no makeup. A refreshing change of pace.

    I really like these are the days top!

  2. I absolutely love the white bikini! I’m always concerned I’d look too pale/washed out in white since I’m so fair skinned, but maybe it’s worth a shot? The Marysia style is amazing!!! Have a relaxing, restorative & FUN trip!

    I am so glad that I’m not the only person who buys crazy expensive sunscreen and acts like that’s normal! My husband thinks I’m insane, but as a ginger, I need all the sun protection I can get! Have a great trip.

    Packing light always seems to start the trip off on the right foot for me. Tata Harper makes the best products!

    Have the absolute BEST time! I’m now envious, need a weekend getaway and the Cuyana overnight bag and maybe, just maybe the Tata Harper Travel Set, lol.

  10. Your getaway sounds AMAZING. I’m trying to stay strong until our Scandinavia vacation, but we gave in and booked a weekend in Montauk next month. The weekend before we move. I’m finally incentivized to start the purging and editing process!

    I love the mix of high and low end products! Seems just like my wardrobe – simple, casual but chic. Have a great trip!

    I wanted to say thanks for your words of encouragement on tanning for my upcoming trip! I took your advice & booked a Glow mobile home spray tan instead of tanning beds this year!! SPF & a light golden spray tan at home is my new skin routine for our upcoming holiday! Thanks!! Adios Chica!!

    Love everything!! can you tell me if the sunglasses are pink when you look through them, or are they brownish with pink mirror on the front? I want to order them but hate looking through pink! Thanks.
