While vacationing and resort-hopping in Mexico in July, I visited with Velas Vallarta and wanted to share some travel pieces to wear to the pool or beach. It was the first time I got to wear my Lands' End Swim Tee Rash Guard, which provides UPF 50 protection against harmful rays. It's lightweight and easy to wear over your swimsuit top for hanging out in or out of the water. I had on a regular XS, so it does have a looser fit on me, but I can also knot the swim tee for a more fitted look. It is also available in a Petite XS.
Since the swim tee rash guard is offered in different prints from stripes to polka dots, it looks great when you mix it up with a contrast bottom, like Lands' End Bella Flora Floral Pleated Retro High Rise Swimsuit Bottom. I had tried on several high rise styles across a few brands and was finally comfortable with the fit on this Lands' End one. Floral prints aren't really my style but I love this particular vibrant floral and the shirring detail.
I had an amazing time at the resort and a fun style shoot there! For my full review on Velas Vallarta, click here.
