Q&A: Winter Clothes for a Mexican Vacation

Q:  I’m going on a cruise this winter vacation to Mexico for 3 days. What clothes should I bring? I looked at the weather and it’s around 60 degrees. I’m especially troubled about dinner, which said casual resort wear. I want to wear jeans with a nice blouse as it is a bit too cold to wear anything else.

A:  Too bad the temperature will be that cool, but in the spirit of the cruise I would pack some fun and flirty outfits.  A cruise is a time to play, so I would recommend a couple of fun dresses to throw into the mix with your jeans.  As for what to wear with your jeans, you can always take your outfit up a notch by throwing a wrap around yourself or adding a cute short sleeved jacket to coordinate with your jeans–and the dresses. 

Here are a few dresses to get you started:
Free People ‘La Isla’ Embroidered Voile Dress | $118 at Nordstrom
Twisted Heart ‘Bianca’ Hooded Terry Dress | $143 at Nordstrom
BCBGMAXAZRIA Flutter Sleeve Knit Dress | $178 at Nordstrom

Theory ‘Azuri - Acute’ Printed Dress | $455 at Nordstrom

And a few separates you might find cruise-worthy:
BB Dakota ‘Evie’ Jacket (in White) | $44 at Nordstrom
Free People ‘Indian Princess’ Racerback Top | $98 at Nordstrom

The dresses I am recommending would look pretty with heels or flats, and the white Free People blouse with jeans would show off any tan you may get.  During the day, jeans or walking shorts with a cute tee or blouse would serve you well.  And if you invest in a short sleeve jacket (like the BB Dakota one), you’ll be covered–even in 60 degree temperatures.   Have a fun filled three days in Mexico!

Have a great tip about what to wear to Mexico during the winter?

You Said: Bright Yellow is In!

Omiru Poll Result: Bright Yellow is In!

Cherbourg Coat

We asked: Is Bright Yellow In or Out?

You said:  In, with a landslide 78% of the vote!

Style tip?  This sunny shade has the power to brighten the dreariest of days.  Beat the rain, snow, or slush with a punch of bright yellow–on a dress or overcoat if you dare.  Feeling less adventurous?  Try a bright yellow headband, scarf, or handbag.  Looks especially fetching paired with grey.

Next question: Leggings remain a winter staple, especially for this season’s 80s inspired looks.  But would you wear them? Cast your
vote on the sidebar!
