TULUM: Shorts Weather

I am so excited to finally be sharing our Tulum trip! This week, I'll be showing what I wore, where we stayed [we like to move around, so we stayed at three different hotels], and dishing out recommendations left & right in a recap at the end of the week. I might be biased, but this destination is the most magical place. From the views to the people, it is such a wonderful, special town and I couldn't recommend a visit more.

It's a long, long story for another day... but we actually ended up arriving in Tulum a day later than we had planned. Needless to say, our first evening at this beautiful hotel resulted in a 7PM bedtime. Not before having one of the best meals of our lives, however. The restaurant at Mezzanine is THE best Thai food I've ever had. I know, it seems strange- Thai food in Mexico- but this dinner is my top recommendation!

The next day, we enjoyed sunrise coffee, laying out on the private sun beds, swimming in the Caribbean, and treating ourselves to 2-for-1 margaritas. Our friend Willie was also in Tulum, so he came and met up with us for drinks & dinner. I wore these adorable shorts that I got from Surfdome and paired them with a breezy blouse that I got at an Anthro sale years ago. [PS: Surfdome is a great resource if you have any fun trips planned- or you're just lucky enough to live someplace tropical. My shorts are waterproof so they're a stylish alternative to the traditional masculine board shorts. You can get them here!]

As the sun began to set, we realized we couldn't pass up one more swim in the ocean. We ran down to the water and bobbed in the waves while the sun set over the jungle. It was so beautiful and a memory I'll always remember! [Lucky for me, the saltwater worked wonders in my hair and I embraced my natural waves all week long.] We headed to dinner at Mateo's and cheersed to Tulum. Little did I know it was my last night as a "single" girl... ;)


  1. Love your shorts, the textured details are amazing!

  2. What size shorts did you buy? The website only shows size 8+

    1. Hi DeAnna! They are in UK sizing, so I got a size 10. (I'm usually a US size 4.) Hopefully this helps!!

  3. Just as the first snowstorm hits us in the Midwest...thanks for the sunny spot in the day. Can't wait for my next trip to Mezzanine! xx
