This winter has been another brutal one for the books so I could not be more excited that I am headed to sunny Mexico this month. I try to go someplace new every year and this year, Mexico fit the bill. We knew we wanted a tropical destination (check), not hard to get to (check) and affordable (check).
Here a few new things I had to sprinkle in with my old vacation staples (flip-flops, denim jacket, floppy hat) to make my wardrobe for this trip feel a little more current and fresh, especially for a mom who barely feels like one out of the two most days.
Sundress – I was super excited when I found this dress at Target a couple of weeks ago because it has the cute shoulder cutouts I have been looking for lately.
Swimsuit Coverup – I was desperate for a new swimsuit coverup and on a recent shopping trip to Old Navy, mainly intended for Ava, I stumbled upon this one just as I was about to checkout. It’s perfect with the loose, flowy fit, especially since I didn’t make it to the gym as much as I had hoped I would prior to say a beach vacation where I would be in a bathing suit majority of the time. Not to mention, all that extra free time I had to get a tan so I feel like you can’t go wrong with black to a.) be figure flattering and b.) distract you enough from noticing how pale you are.
Wedges – There is nothing like a new pair of wedges to really feel like spring is right around the corner and squash any remnants of those winter blues so you can imagine how overjoyed I was when these were on sale on Zulily about a month before our trip!
