View from Sur Beach House – Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Recently, my husband and I had the opportunity to join our friends for a winter getaway in Cabo San Lucas. We love tropical getaways but this was the first time we traveled to a tropical destination during winter time. That being said, I spent a bit of time looking at historical weather data and researching appropriate clothing for January in Cabo because I didn’t want to get there and be cold! 🙂
Luckily, our friends got there one day before us and let us know that although it is warm for the most part (mid 70s) we should still bring a sweater and a pair of pants because it gets chilly at night. That’s not too different from LA although at the time LA was having a crazy rain storm by our standards. Great timing to getaway although as a born and raised Seattleite I was kind of sad to leave it. Can’t have everything! 😉
Anyway, we arrived in Cabo San Lucas and the weather was perfect! Mid 70’s – not too hot in the sun but a perfect temperature under a beach umbrella. Have a margarita or two at sunset and you’re warm enough to experience the night time chill. There were no mosquitoes in site either! Anyway, I brought a variety of things including a couple pairs of shorts, jeans and dresses. Short sleeve shirts and tanks with some scarves to cover my arms if it got too chilly and of course a couple different hats to protect me from the sun. While I didn’t photograph everything I wore I put together a Winter Cabo Capsule Wardrobe on Polyvore for those of you who may be wondering … will it be cold in Cabo this winter? (Or any winter for that matter 🙂 ) This is for you- a collection of items you can mix and match on your winter escape:
All pieces mix and match with each item with the exception of the night out jacket, necklace and heels. For this particular set – use the denim long sleeve shirt with the pink short combo to cover up when it gets cold. Just roll up the sleeves a bit and tie front ends of the shirt together for a casual beach vibe.
