What I Packed for Mexico ON A BUDGET

As you are reading this, we are currently on our way to Cancun and holiday pictures are about to flood my Instagram feed (and possibly yours, if you are following along, hehe). But, I just couldn’t wait to give you a sneak peek of what I packed in preparation for our getaway -aka escape from the Saskatchewan cold. This holiday was my chance to order the items that come to mind when I picture a gorgeous ocean view and palm trees swaying. And I have to say, I am pumped about what I found and can’t wait to wear every single item. Below are what I consider beach essentials so if you are jetting somewhere warm yourself you might want to consider these options!

Every gal needs a great bikini and this white ribbed suit was one of my top picks! I love the tie in the front and the classic cut -it’s absolutely perfect for a day in the sun! Just make sure you slather on that sunscreen and if you are anything like me, I get sun sick without a good hat and shades so this visor was a must. I chose it for the extra coverage, the natural color and that it packs really well (rolls right up in your suitcase). Plus it’s the cutest.

Not only are hair scarves the BEST accessory but you will be the most stylish gal on the beach donning one of these! They look amazing with a swimsuit and help keep the hair off your face in the heat. They also look great with a tank and shorts on your way to brunch or a complimentary sundress. I honestly wouldn’t go on a hot holiday without one simply because they are just too much fun! And so on trend this season.

A hot holiday is incomplete without a play suit or two piece set (just picture a romantic walk along the beach in the moonlight). These pieces are fabulous to dress up in the evening and I love that you can find one to compliment any body type. They are also great to wear in the day time as a cover up for your swimsuit. Did you notice the wicker earrings? Adding in texture through accessories like jewelry or your beach bag is the perfect compliment and finish to your outfit.

For years, a two piece swimsuit was considered THE item to have when it came to bathing suits. But move over bikini because one piece swimsuits are officially giving you a run for your money! Gone are the days of the mom swimsuit as your only option. Now you can choose from the most gorgeous selection ranging from more coverage to cutouts (this gives mom’s running around after their kids comfort and style on the beach)! I chose this particular one for the color, the cutouts and the self ties on the shoulder. I also love that I can add in a touch of retro with these sunnies. And of course, what easier to pair with than classic denim cutoffs!

All of these pieces are available to shop below. You will see that every item is a great price point as it was my mission to shop for Mexico on a budget. Regarding the items I ordered from Shein, I reviewed my experience in a blog awhile back @ http://www.lady-styles.com/lounge-set-kitchen-reveal. I would suggest you read it before ordering. As for this time, I carefully read all the reviews on every piece that I ordered, followed the size chart (wearing small for reference) and am pleased to say ran into zero issues. I think the quality is absolutely fabulous for the price point!

Affordable style is always my aim with my blog because I believe no matter your budget, every gal can look fabulous! xoxo


P.S. Stay tuned on Instagram and the blog for the rest of what I will be wearing in Mexico ♥ Ben and I have some exciting content planned!!!
