We are heading soon to one of my favorite places, Punta Mita.  My Punta Mita packing list full of fun pieces both new and well loved.  And those that are past season, I’ve found for you again and at lower prices.  So if you missed out, don’t hesitate this time!

If you’ve read The Lush List very long, you know how much I love Mexico and that Punta Mita is one of our favorite places.  On this trip we will be showing my parents and my brother and his family the ins and outs and why we love to spend time here.  We are staying in a new to us home in a development we love to stay in.  I’ll give a full tour once we arrive so be sure to follow me on Instagram and watch stories.  I’ll also write a new Punta Mita post and link it when we return.

One of the fun things I’ll be packing is this vintage Kate Spade Hula bag.  I’ve had it for many years and just found one again for one of you.  I get so many compliments on it when I carry it.  Also this Misa Los Angeles dress sold out last year and I found it again in all sizes.

Another find are these wedge espadrilles that sold out so fast this spring!  You can see them here and here.  They are back in all sizes but don’t wait!  I get messages about them all the time wanting to know where to find them.

This cover up, featured in my Cabo post and in the June Under $150 post, is so good that I bought it in black as well.  I plan on wearing it as a dress to dinner one night.  Double duty is key when traveling!  Super cute with my favorite straw clutch and these wedges that are on major markdown.

I also was a hold out on this swimsuit that everyone raves about.  Nah.  Everyone has it.  Well, I finally broke down and now I understand why!  It is flattering, soft and well priced.  It comes in so many colors, too.  The burgundy is next on my list for a trip we have coming this fall!

I’ve packed plenty of our favorite sunscreen (it truly lasts in the water and no one gets burned!!) and also this amazing self tanner.  It smells soooo good!  It’s also so easy to use, a 10 year old can do it.  Yes, she did!  We came home from a date night and I went in to give her a good night kiss and couldn’t figure out why she smelled so good…the next morning a bronzed beauty emerged!  So funny!

We will have photos taken with my family and are all wearing white because it’s the easiest to coordinate!  I’m excited to have this new one shoulder ruffle dress from Cuyana.  I’ll also be packing it for a trip in a few weeks.

One last item, I want to point out is these denim shorts you may have seen on Instagram stories on the 4th.  They are so slimming and not too short.  I love throwing them on with a cute top for a casual dinner or a tshirt for errands.

If you are off to the beach soon, I hope this inspires your packing. I’ve also updated the Summer Shop so be sure to visit!  And if you missed the post from yesterday, be sure to check it out so you are ready for the big event next week!

Happy Weekend!

Best of Travel 2018

2018 was one for the books in the way of travel for me.  This time last year I had no idea it would be that way!  We created so many memories as a family traveling to Mexico, Rome, Florence and Venice.  Travel is something our whole family loves to do and I can’t wait to see what this year holds!
