Opposite from México’s well traveled Mayan Riviera are myriad attractions on the Pacific coast. Long before Túlum became a tourist destination, the likes of Acapulco and Puerto Vallarta held sway for those seeking sun and sand south of the border. North of Puerto Vallarta along the Pacific Ocean coast is the village of Sayulita, which serves as the site of a story running in the latest issue of Seventeen starring Larsen Thompson. In keeping with the coastal climate of the region, this story celebrates the beachy pairing of bikini tops with printed skirts, dresses, shorts, and more. To that end, Larsen (pictured) delivers a one-two tropical punch wearing a swim top by Milly with denim by Sandro. That Larsen also wears a smile is to be expected from this free-spirited dancer, but like that straw in a freshly cut coconut, no less savored.
