Honeymoon in Mexico sounds great! Congrats. Dinner - plain/ block colour maxi dress and statement jewelry as staple? Sightseeing.... same. Or 3/4 7/8 trousers and top and sunglasses. What do you like to wear in summer in hot places? For me, footwear is always the issue
I have a black strapless maxi dress, so could work with that.
Mostly in summer abroad I wear long skirts and kaftans, but that is mostly because where we ordinarily go that is the most cultually appropriate thing outside the hotel (and I come home as white as I left)
How much of everything should I take? How many swimsuits, how many sets of underwear?
I love a floaty kaftan over swimwear, with jewelled flip flops and funky beach bag and big shades. Maxis are great in hot weather, I wouldn't take anything constricting. What a lovely honeymoon, congratulations.
For sightseeing I would take trousers to avoid thigh rub - 3/4 length cotton or linen. Personally I always wear short or thin cropped leggings under maxi dresses for the same reason, but obviously not for relaxing on the beach or similar.
