Destination: Tulum

Melissa Odabash Collection at KIJIANFor our second destination on KIJIAN we chose Mexican resort town, Tulum.   Once a favorite holiday destination for hippies, this eco-friendly and spiritually centered town is now a hot spot amongst the fashion industry.  While it remains true to its roots with a laid back lifestyle, the influence of the fashion scene is visible in subtle ways.   The tone is artfully dialed back where fashion and earthiness co-exist amid Tulum’s pristine beaches and Mayan ruins. 

Bohemian chic is definitely the way to pack for this town on the Yucatan Peninsula.  Not the place to flaunt labels but rather to wear pieces that are effortlessly chic, high-peasant style.   The vibe is understated and easy, therefore simple bikinis and poncho cover-ups for day and airy maxi-dresses with hand crafted jewelry for night, feel just right.

For KIJIAN, we designated a special shopping section called “Riviera Maya” offering many options perfect for Tulum.  Some of my favorites include: 

The Eberjey Traveler Poncho Cover-Up, this white crochet always looks great and goes with just about any bathing suit.

The Melissa Odabash Sicily Bikini, very sexy black criss-cross back bikini.

The Helen Kaminski Raffia Charcoal Carillo Bag.

Miguelina White Crochet Eve Dress, this is a stunning mesh and floral crochet maxi-dress with side slits.

Mela Hand-Crafted Necklaces with Baroque Pearls and Crystals.
