Shopping for Playa del Carmen

If you haven’t read our recent blog post, we have some exciting news! We are flying to Playa del Carmen to spend a weekend at the Thompson Resort! Since we live in Florida, you would think I would have the perfect wardrobe for this trip… well, you would be wrong. I have A LOT of workout clothes and some business casual stuff, but not enough sundresses and rompers to survive a weekend in Riviera Mexico! I did plan on just bringing my current bikini collection, but I couldn't resist the sales from ;) 

I went over to to do my shopping. With my busy schedule, sometimes it is so hard to get out and physically go into a store. And besides, have you seen lulus clothes?! ADORABLE! And absolutely perfect for my lifestyle. I am not sure EXACTLY what we will doing while we are there, so I need to make sure I cover all my bases. We are only going to be gone for 3 days, but I will most likely need at least 3 outfits/day... girls, you understand. You never know what you are going to need and you don’t want all of your IG photos in the same outfit!

Beach TowelS

Guys, I haven’t purchased a beach towel in years… And I think the last time I did it was because we were on our way to the beach and accidentally left ours at home. I thought this would be the perfect time for a new one. I purchased this beautiful Turkish Cotton towel and I cannot wait to try it out. There are quite a few Turkish Cotton beach towels on the market, but I love Sand Cloud because of their mission to save the ocean… and their towels are adorable and super affordable!
