Vacation Essentials: Bring on Spring Break!
In the midst of this ever-present cold front, I’m dreaming of college for one reason: Spring Break. Unfortunately, when you’re a grown-up, you don’t get a random week off in March, but there IS such a thing as accruing vacation days, and that’s essentially the same thing.
In the spirit of Spring Break and also in an epic effort to escape this disgusting snow? hail? what is it, even?, I booked a flight to warmer weather. I absolutely cannot wait to leave these 15 degree forecasts behind! Just thinking about it gets me pumped for sunshine, beaches, and afternoons spent poolside.
In anticipation for my fast-approaching trip, I rounded up a few of my vacation essentials, as you can see in the photo above. First on that list is Neutrogena Ultra Sheer sunscreen because sunburn? Ain’t nobody got time for that. Second on my vacation essentials list is my favorite pair of tortoise sunglasses. Ever since I bought these, I don’t like wearing any other pattern of glasses, even just plain black.
I really love this soft muslin shawl from Aerie because it’s a lightweight weave, which means it’s perfect for both cooler nights and to wear as a coverup on the beach. It’s a versatile piece that could transform from daytime to nighttime.
This orange bikini is from Palace of Chic and in a world where tops and bottoms are sold separately, generally for somewhere around $30 each, I feel like this fashion-forward, staple piece is a great buy. I chose it in this warm peach shade so that it will really accentuate tanned skin.
Lastly, I’m all about the Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray to accentuate already natural, salt-infused locks. This stuff is a life saver, especially after a long day spent at the beach. If you’re running late to dinner and don’t have time to shampoo and conditioner your hair before a night out, spraying this product in your hair is a quick and easy alternative.
