Cabo Must Have's

In less than 72 hours, I'll be laying in my beach chair, sipping an icy margarita, and listening to the waves crash on the beach in Cabo.

A few girlfriends and myself booked a quick trip to Cabo for a quick escape from city life.  I plan to come back very tan, and very relaxed, but today and tomorrow is all about packing my bags for our trip south of the border. When I think mexico, I think beachy hair, bikinis, and bright colors, and this list covers my essentials for this little getaway...

Sass & Bide multicolor dress, $380 / Victoria's Secret victoria secret / Colorful maxi dress / Fuchsia dress / Victoria's Secret victoria secret / Jimmy Choo strap high heels / Sigerson Morrison heel wedge / Nine West heels / Sam & Libby shoes / Michael Kors tote bag / BaubleBar orange bib necklace / H&M plastic bracelet, $4.51 / Rachel Zoe

Possibly the most essential item to pack on a tropical vacation is your swimsuit.  I'll be spending about 70% of my day in one, and I'm all about the bandeau style bikini.  It's especially great for the first few days to avoid tan-lines from a triangle top.  I also could not leave without a big floppy hat - the sun is STRONG and we want to avoid wrinkles at all costs.

I love everything about a maxi dress, and I plan on bringing a few - they are so pretty blowing in the breeze, and they are equally comfy as they are feminine.  They are usually not super tight around the mid-section which means, bring on the tacos!  I won't be holding back!  I'm all about the aztec prints out in stores right now, and these are so perfect for a trip to Baja.  I love the blouse-y short number almost as much as I love the black white and yellow bandage dress!

Comfy footwear is important too - especially with cobblestone pathways, and sand everywhere. I'll most likely spend most of my time in a comfy pair of gladiators, but it's nice to have a few sassy options for a night out on the town - bright striped espadrilles, brown laser cut wedges, and these yellow Jimmy Choo's are on my dream wish list for sure.  How amazing are they???

Accessories make an outfit, so I plan on packing a few bold statement necklaces and fun bracelets, and I wouldn't dare go on a beach vacation without a big sturdy tote to drag all my magazines, and sunscreen to the pool.

Just making this list made me sooo excited!  Off to pack!
