What to Pack for Cancun

Happy Monday, friends! I’m so excited for this weekย because I’m one day closer to a (much needed) vacation! If you can’t tell from the title, I’ll be heading to Cancun next week, and I seriously cannot wait. It’s been quite a while sinceย my last trip, so I’m looking forward to laying by the beach/pool, soaking in the sun and completely relaxing.

With that said, I’ve been doing a bit of vacation shopping (but reasoning that it’s all perfect for spring and summer, too) and thought I’d share some of my favorite picks for what to pack for Cancun! I was actually surprised at how affordable a lot of these pieces are. It just shows that patience pays off, because most are now on sale! As you can tell, I went with mostly neutrals for this trip, as they can be mixed and match with so many different items.

The scalloped swimsuit purchase is probably my number one favorite, as it’s an identical knockoff of the Marysia Swim one piece, which is $332. $22 sounds much better to me, don’t you agree? However, if you’re worried about quality – don’t be. The material is thick and it even comes with removable pads! I opted to take mine out, but I know some people prefer them.

I also can’t recommend these brown mules enough! I purchased them a few months ago (last seen here) and they. are. the. bomb. My friend actually came over this weekend to borrow them for an upcoming trip! I’m not exaggerating when I say they are so smooth and feel like butter. You can also wear them all day long, which makes them perfect for exploring during vacation.

My final must-have item is this denim skirt. It took me a while to get on board with this trend, but I’m so glad I did! This skirt came in the mail the other day and fits like a glove. I’m super excited to dress it up at night with heels, and dress it down during the day with sneakers. It’s so versatile, and obviously made the list of what to pack for Cancun.

Alright – that’s it for me, friends. Hoping this week is a wonderful one for you all!

    I love that swimsuit – & actually, I love all these picks, though I have a feeling they would not look nearly as chic on me as they look on my screen. Ha.
