Unpack with Me - Hits and Misses in Cancun, Mexico

Check out my travel capsule wardrobe for Cancun!

As a packing ninja, I only pack in a carry on bag for every trip. Come UN-pack with me from my recent trip to Cancun, Mexico, and see what was a hit, and what I wish I’d left behind. I share my color palette, wardrobe basics and more! This mini version of my capsule wardrobe was almost perfect for my 7-day trip. Whether you are a minimal packer or not, you’ll learn from my wins and my mistakes so you can pack a perfect bag on your next trip!

We were so excited to go on our annual trip to Cancun, Mexico for a mid-winter getaway. I always pack in a carry on bag, and today we are going to unpack my suitcase so I show you what I took, and which items were hits and which I should have left home. I think this is so helpful in refining my packing skills.

We were gone for 7 days, and I’m telling you now, even though I took a mini capsule wardrobe, I OVERPACKED, so I’ve got some hindsight to share, for sure. I shared the actual outfits I wore in this post.

If you are a minimalist packer like me, you know that suitcase space is at a premium, and if you aren’t, check out these posts to see how I’ve done it on other trips, and what I’ve packed in the past!
