Vamos a la Playa

by Kelsi Leitz in , ,


 

My son and I are getting ready to take a little trip with my mom to Mexico. I'm packing light with just a carry-on that I can carry on my back which isn't too challenging considering we only really need the essentials: swimsuits, sunscreen and flip flops. 

A few things I'm packing...

This Stella McCartney Adidas swimsuit that I super love (especially the back)...

My favorite Beautycounter sunscreen has to stay at home because of the size but I'm bringing along their body stick and this stuff in the 2.5 oz version that my friend Omar likes. And my favorite face sunscreen from Suntegrity...

I'll also be wearing my favorite trucker hat from Machine Machine...

And my new favorite denim shorts...

My son has these swim goggles which are fantastic. More like a mask than traditional goggles and they are super easy to adjust. I bought an adult version for myself as well.

I am also using this great (and affordable) linen shirt from Uniqlo as a beach coverup...

Forever and ever Ray-Ban New Wayfarer shades...

I'm also packing a small medical kit my husband put together and this elderberry syrup that we all take regularly at home. It's great for extra immune support and is anti-viral and anti-microbial.

And this is the bag everything is going into, the MLC from Patagonia...

I'm also using this pared down backpack from Topo Designs...

Packing cubes are super helpful to keep everything organized.

Last but not least, two new paperbacks for me! This and this. Uno, Spot It, a Koosh Ball, crayons, colored pencils and a coloring book.

Now it's time to brush up on my Spanish.
