Tuesday Ten: Spring Break Packing List

Whether you are in school or not, spring has pretty much sprung, meaning it’s time to enjoy a little sunshine, rock those beachy waves, and spend time with family and friends. I miss the concept of having a spring break in my adult life—taking a break from work for week or two to reset and refresh (and lay on the beach…and drink cocktails). So, this year I’m making an effort to give myself a personal spring break, either in the form of a staycation here in LA or a vacation someplace else. In honor of the much-anticipated break, I have assembled the perfect packing list that will let you relax and have fun in style…

Tuesday Ten: Spring Break Packing List

Fresh Bikini

A stylish bikini is always the first item I pack when I’m traveling somewhere warm. And I like to invest in a fun new one each spring, since bathing suits can get worn out pretty easily. This Antibes Bikini from Marysia was my big splurge this season, but one that I know will be well worth it.

Stylish Sun Hat

If you look back at photos of me on vacation, there’s a good chance you’ll find pictures of me wearing hats. Not only do I like the way they look, they also help shade my skin from harmful UV rays. Scoop up this stylish version from J.Crew for your next trip.

Flirty Dress

There’s something about springtime that makes me want to go out dancing with my besties. And when that situation presents itself, I will be wearing a fun bright party dress, like the sunshine-hued one above by Luca Couture. It’s also great for brunch, shopping or any daytime excursions, too.

Delicate Jewelry

I usually like to keep my jewelry to a minimum when I travel so that I don’t lose delicate or precious pieces. So, having pieces that make an understated splash are necessary. I adore these Gorjana Crystal Triangle Studs. Bonus: They won’t break the bank.

Comfortable T -Shirt

I’ve been having a love affair with stripes lately. Striped pieces go with everything and are so easily to throw on. This super soft t-shirt will look casual and cute with white or blue denim.

Denim Shorts

Most girls don’t need any convincing that a pair of denim shorts is essential when jet setting for spring break. Throw them on over your bikini, wear them with a t shirt or put them on to lounge around—no matter how you look at it, jean shorts are necessary. I love the wash and fit of these Madewell ones.

Chic Sandals

A trusty pair of slip on sandals is a must-have on your next vacation. This pair from Joie is easy to slip on and will go with almost anything in your closet.

Straw Tote

A straw tote just screams warm weather to me. This cute carryall will hold everything you need for a day on the beach. Click here to see what my team packs in their beach bags.

Beachy Sunnies

I adore this pair of Illesteva sunnies because of contrast between the tortoise frames and the blue/green reflective lenses. I can see myself in these on the beach (pun intended).

Cute Weekend Bag

Now that you know what to pack, you’ll need a stylish duffel bag to put it all in. I rely on this overnight bag from The Little Market. Not only will it go great with your outfit, it can also fit a ton of clothes, accessories and makeup inside.

And of course no vacation is complete without a good book to read on the beach. I’ve heard The Girl On the Train is quite the page-turner, so you can be sure it will be my next beach read.

Do you have any travel plans this spring?
