Treasures of Tulum


One of the places I was most looking forward to seeing was the Tulum Ruins in Mexico. I found it very enchanting to see the ruins beside the beach which reminded me of a set from an old adventure film. My look was actually inspired by Indiana Jones while being on a search for lost treasures. Before I left for Mexico I got these basic swim shorts at value village for $4.99 and a patch of aztec print from the fabric store. I wanted to sew a patch of aztec print on the pocket to make the basic neutral shorts to make them unique. Below are some photos of the process while making them! 
This photo starting from the left to right is my friend Gary, my mom, my brother Arthur, me, my sister Alicia and her boyfriend Mark.
