packing-for-my-honeymoonNext Saturday Dave & I are finally off on our honeymoon! After getting married back in May, we can not wait to get away and relax on a beach and drink cocktails all day long. We are travelling out for two weeks to the Riviera Maya in Mexico. We have planned to not do a whole lot but chill out. However we have booked a day at the Eco water park for snorkelling in caverns and natural lagoons, swimming with dolphins, a trip to the Mayan Ruins & a day trip into Mexico City. Oh emmm gee Im excited, we havent been on a beach holiday since 2011!
Ive already got all my clothes set out to be packed & thought id share with you guys what ill be packing!
what-to-pack-for-a-holidayIm taking four swimsuits with me, two old bikinis and these two new ones above. The swimsuit I got from the Asos Sale & the retro two-piece I got in Topshop. Im also bringing two pairs of sunglasses with me, one RayBan Wayfarers & one by Cheap Monday.
a-winter-sun-holidayFor my hand luggage Ill be taking this embroidered backpack which will double as a beach bag from Accesorize. As well as my iPad & headphones (not shown above) Ill be packing a notebook, Dave's Mexico guide book, my iPhone, BritStitch coin purse (handy for the beach) two novels- gone girl & girl boss, sunglasses & lipbalm.
Ill also be packing 2 maxi dresses, 2 playsuits, 2 jumpsuits, 10 dresses, 1 beach dress, 3 pairs of shorts, 7 vests/tees & 4 pairs of sandals. Ive decided not to pack any heels as in the heat I never end up wearing them. Ill probably still need to pack a neutral clutch for the evenings... and voila thats what Ill be packing for my trip to Mexico! :)
