Back from Playa del Carmen and had a great time! Though now I am really tan and kind of scare myself every time I look in the mirror.
I ended up wearing a lot of headbands and pulling my hair back because the bangs were not cooperating in the steamy weather. Glad I found those red French Connection sunglasses because they went with nearly everything I brought. For the most part, I stuck with my usual staples from Urban, H&M and American Apparel.
So these are all new bathing suits I bought for the trip. I surprisingly found the first two in Everything But Water. I never shop there, but stopped in on a whim and love the suits I got. Of course, the salesgirl was a tad annoying because she kept having me try on random crap.. like I was really going to buy a $168 cover-up and some black flip flops.. but she did find me the cranberry Red Carter suit. I told her I love me some tiered ruffles and poof, got this suit. The black ABS by Allen Schwartz suit has great details with small rosettes lining the top and sides of the bottoms. Both suits have a removable strap as well. I like the color combo and checkered trim of the Victoria Secret suit, which is even more non-spenny now because it’s on sale. The VS stores have finally begun to carry some of the swimsuits they sell online, which has been long overdue considering the great selection at affordable prices. Stay classy Mexico.
