Tulum Bound + Packing Diaries

    It’s finally here! Our trip to Tulum is this week and I’m starting to ease myself into vacation mode. It’s been ages since my last visit in 2013, but it was by far one of the most serene, aesthetically beautiful, and wonderful places I’ve ever been. One of Matt’s best friends is getting married on Saturday, so we fly out early Thursday morning and will be staying at a resort north of the heart of Tulum through Sunday. So many people I love coming to this wedding– it’s going to be so much fun! Back when I first met Tulum, I stayed at BE, which is an insanely stunning resort on the water. I wanted to make sure that while we were there, we had the chance to be a little closer to the action, so we booked another hotel for after the wedding from Monday to Wednesday. It’s walking/biking distance to everything we plan to do, so it will be a nice way to break up/end the trip.

    Tulum was so quiet back then, so I’m excited to see how much it’s evolved since it got so popular these past few years. A few old favorites still stand strong (cannot wait to make my way back to Hartwood!), and a handful of new spots on our list to try. I’m looking forward to spending the last drops of summer in one of my favorite places and sharing our time with you guys! I will be posting a few photos along the way on Instagram and stories, so be sure to follow along!

    I was a little nervous about the weather last week with the hurricanes and then the earthquake, but the forecast is looking much better. Even if it’s a little rainy here and there, it’s still going to be the best time. Matt begged me to only bring a carry-on for this trip…thank goodness beach attire is light. So thought I would share a few basics/accessories being Tetris-ed into my suitcase. I’ll be sharing a couple other fun pieces once we arrive, so stay tuned!

    • have so much fun girl! I can’t wait to see your pics! xx

      • Thank you! I am so excited! The last time I went, Instagram filters (aka “Nashville” black frame border) were the only editing process, so it’s safe to say these may turn out better than the last! 😉

        Hope you’re having a great week.
