Spring Break Essentials


Right now I am constantly dreaming about warm weather and the beach. Luckily, I have been visiting my parents in Florida a ton! The “spring breakers” are beginning to arrive there and I can’t help but reminisce my high school and college days! So I created a huge round up of the spring break essentials that everyone needs!

One: A Sunhat

It seems that all summer long, you can find me in a huge sunhat! I recently splurged and bought this hat and I have to say I’m in love!! It comes in a few different sizes which is great since I have a small head! I ordered an extra small and it fits so well! Since I wear a hat so frequently in the summer, I wanted to invest in a hat that will last! However, if you are looking for a less expensive version I have found some great ones here and here!

Two: A Cute Beach Towel

You can’t go to the beach without bringing a towel! I always love to have a cute towel with me, especially if I can get it to match my swimsuit! Turkish towels are the best because of how light they are. They also don’t take up a ton of room in your beach bag, which leaves more room for the fun stuff like drinks! Anything that can be multi-purpose I am a fan of. These towels can also be used as a coverup, a shawl, picnic blankets or even a bath towel! I found a few other adorable towels here and here too!

Three: Evening Clutch

During the warmer months, I love carrying a cute clutch instead of a heavy purse. I absolutely love this one! The colors are so pretty and it will go with a ton of outfits! If you love pom poms then you also need to check this one out too!

Four: Self Tanner

Let’s face it, no one wants to be pale at the beach, but I am NOT about to ruin my skin in the sun! This self-tanner is great! It goes on easy with very little streaks (although I do suggest purchasing the mit) and isn’t orange at all. One bottle should last a while and totally worth it for a beautiful and safe glow!

Five: Crossbody Purse

This purse is perfect for a day of shopping and exploring! A rattan bag has been on my wishlist for some time and I finally found one at a great price!

Six: Beach Coverup

This is a no brainer essential but finding the right cover-up can be so hard! I fell in love with the embroidery on this one and it comes in two other colors!

Seven: A Swimsuit You Feel Confident In

I must admit, until recently I have always been a bikini girl. Lately, though, I have had my eye on so much adorable one pieces! The ruffle on this hot pink swimsuit is darling. I’m in love with this white one too, but I am patiently waiting for my size to come back in stock.

Eight: Casual Sandals

If I could buy one thing for spring and summer, it would be these shoes! I am completely in love and they have received amazing reviews! The woven straps add the cutest detail and because of the neutral color, they will go with everything!

Nine: Face Sunscreen

If sunscreen breaks your face out, YOU HAVE to get this sunscreen! For years I struggled with breakouts during the summer months due to sunscreen. I would find one I love, but the SPF wouldn’t be high enough or they were outrageously expensive. This one is amazing! It has a high SPF and has never once broken my face out. I use it on my neck and face and one bottle goes a long way.

Ten: Wedges

How adorable are these!? They come in a blush color as well which I am dying to own! They aren’t too high and are perfect for heading out to dinner paired with that cute clutch mentioned above 😉

Eleven: Beach Tote

Is it just me or is it hard to find a cute beach tote? I love beach bags that can be used on the beach AND walking through town, which makes this one perfect! I love how affordable it is too! If you don’t love the woven pattern it also comes in straw. I also am in love with this pom pom beach tote too! It is super casual and fun!

Twelve: Statement Earrings

Nothing is better than making your outfit pop with a great statement earring! These are adorable and under $15, plus come in a ton of different colors!

What is your favorite spring break essential?!
