Planning a last minute tropical getaway before summer’s end? Not sure what to pack? Allow me to help. I am planning an end of summer trip to Mexico, and naturally I am planning out my wardrobe for the trip, starting with my resort wear. So, I figure why not make a few wardrobe recommendations for you also. A coverup, caftan, or sarong just does not cut it when hanging around luxe resort towns. You’re going to want something with a bit more “snazz” for the oceanside dinners at sunset, and post dinner margaritas and dancing. Straw hats have made quite the appearance this summer, and are a must for any tropical environment. Why not protect your skin while looking stylish? Pair that up with the equally popular polka dot or floral print wrap or sarong style skirt, and statement blouse- preferably off the shoulder, and you are ready to enjoy the vacation perks of the resort life!
