Hello! Here is the other half of my Cancun trip post! This post is for all of the stuff I brought and wore in Mexico! I will link as much as I can, but it’s not all available anymore so I tried to find similar items for those. This was such a fun trip to pack for because I got to bring all of the fun swimsuits and pretty dresses, shorts, and skirts that I don’t typically get to wear on a day to day basis because #kids.

I love this swimsuit so much! It’s so cute, and yet still supportive and comfortable.
I love that this romper in nice enough to dress up like I did here or you could easily dress is down and wear it out sightseeing or shopping! I wish I had a belt like this one to wear with it!
I loved the bright color of this one and it stayed put while snorkeling! I actually considered returning this one but I’m so glad I brought it because I love it!
The prettiest cover up ever. And it’s super affordable! It comes in a bunch of colors – I am wearing the white which I love that it’s not a super stark white.
This was the point in our trip where I gave up on my hair LOL. (SO glad I brought bobby pins!) This dress was so pretty and it actually fit me which sometimes can be hard with maxi dresses since I’m only 5’2″!
Tank // Similar wedges // Bracelet // My skirt is from Red Dress last year and I couldn’t find one like this anywhere! If you see one let me know! It was my favorite outfit from this trip! This one here is semi similar, but only available in XS.
Other Stuff I Brought
Bag – I loved this bag on this trip – it’s really lightweight and still holds a ton.
Silicone Rings – I got these because I was worried about my actual wedding wings falling off or getting lost/stolen. They were super cheap, comfortable, and come in a bunch of colors. I got a size 4 and my usual rings are 4.25 or 4.5.
Speaker – I snagged this one at Marshalls for way cheaper so check there if you have a chance! We loved having this thing though! It puts out just enough sound to enjoy at the beach, but it also didn’t disturb the people around us! Plus it’s water proof!
Travel Bathroom Bag – we had had the same bag for probably 8 years now and it was falling a part and never fit all of our stuff. This one fits so much stuff while still being compact! It’s awesome! And only like $25. There is also a larger one too, but all of the things we brought fit just fine in this bag!
Sunscreen – a must have to not be miserable after day 1! Fun fact – you don’t need to spring for high spf – it actually does nothing more than spf 30! Just make sure you are using it and find one that is reef friendly if you are going in the ocean especially!
For just laying out by the pool, I liked this one because it has a bronzer in it. I also used this lotion to help with tanning and I can’t say it did anything drastic, but maybe it helped. On this note – get a spray tan! I got my first one ever before this trip and I think it’s why I didn’t burn! I just stayed in the shade for a lot of our trip because I already had the tan. Maybe it’s silly, but it made me happy!
Disposable masks – without access to laundry I didn’t want to rely on our reusable ones. I’m so glad I brought these! And I love being able to just immediately throw away the airplane ones! And these are just so pretty and breathable if you are doing any hiking of the Mexico ruins!
Hair Ties – These hair ties are the absolute best and the only ones I use. They don’t rip your hair out or break which is even more important if you are going to be swimming in the ocean or just even walking in the wind with your hair up.
Nipple Pasties – these are what I wore under my dresses! They come in a pack of 5 and you can also re use them a few times.
