Costa Careyes, Mexico

The adventure of GypseaLemonade took me to Costa Careyes, Mexico, and I might as well have gone to heaven. The tropical flora, beautiful vistas, and brightly painted, Mediterranean-style casitas were all snapshots of my dream home. Everything was complimented by wicker, palapa roofs, open spaces, and surfaces that invited you to walk around barefoot. There were organic elements abound, and you were never a far walk from the water. The pool overlooking the Pacific ocean was so beautiful that at first glance didn't seem real.   

Fashion: With places like Mexico, where you know you'll be in a bathing suit all day, the two main items I like to pack are pareos and hats. That is my summer uniform. Pareos are great because they serve multiple purposes. You can wear them as a skirt, a cover up, a top, and more. For example, you can wear the pareo as a skirt to the beach and then tie it up as a dress for lunch. Dresses are another easy item to wear over bikinis. Below I am wearing a black spaghetti dress that to my surprise fit in perfectly with the plants of Careyes. 

Fashion Tip: If you are packing pareos for your summer vacation,  make sure they go with the color of your bikini tops.
