Wanderlust Wednesday: What I Wore in Cabo

I love to write these posts.  One, because you love these round ups and refer back to them a lot.  And, two, it means I just got back from a trip!  Here is a quick round up of what I wore in Cabo in January on what has become an annual trip.  That makes me really happy as well!

Travel Days

To save space I wore the same look both travel days.  I took only a carry on and my new favorite tote.  I wore this embroidered top with white jeans on the plane and changed into these white shorts at the airport to arrive at the resort since it was so warm.  I always pack this wrap for the plane and wear jeans because I’m always freezing!  I got all of this and four swimsuits, two more pair of sandals, two more dresses and more in just those two bags.  I’ll be sharing more on that soon!

Embroidered Top (Y’all sold this one out but this one is beautiful, too!) /Sandals (Similar) / Round Straw Bag

Night One

We went straight to the pool after lunch and stayed here until sunset.  This red Cover up has been a favorite since our trip last January.  I have it in black as you’ll see later.  I wore the red this day in honor of the Kansas City Chiefs game.  They lost there is always next year!  We watched the game in our room and had room service which is one of my favorite things to do on vacation.Red One Shoulder Cover Up / Similar Fedora / Sunglasses / Sunscreen / Lip Sunscreen

Breakfast and PoolsideLove this darling striped shirting dress with yellow embroidery and tassels.  Would be great as a cover up as well.

Night Two – Dinner at El Farallon

Dinner at one of my favorite restaurants in the world.  This restaurant is built into the cliff on The Resort at Pedregal property.  There is no experience like this one.  Sitting along the granite cliff and hearing the surf crash below is just magical!  You can see this on my Instagram Stories where highlights of all my travels live.

Night Three – Live Music and Tapas at The Resort at Pedregal

This terry tunic dress is great for travel as it goes from pool to dinner.  Love a double duty piece!

    Cabo looks beautiful!!! I really love your one-shoulder white dress! It is so simple but works great from day to night. I would like to have it in all three colors! Do you have a favorite bra you like with that dress? I assume any strapless would work?

    • Alicia

      Cabo is always so pretty! I do love this dress in all three colors. I’m thinking about the navy for spring! This trip I forgot my strapless bra and had to just tuck in a strap on one shoulder. I think that actually worked better than my strapless and might be my new go-to! 🙂

    Silly question, but how do you transport your fedora on the plane? I’m always either carrying it in my hand and juggling it among other carryon luggage…and then trying to stow it under the seat or overhead. Somehow, my hats always end up crushed..or lost.

    • Alicia

      Not a silly question at all! I do typically carry mine on the plane and then put it under the seat with my tote. I know others pack them with rolled up clothes inside to help them keep their shape. I just like to have mine ready when I get off the plane!
