What To Pack For Spring Break

Spring break is just around the corner for me, and it seriously couldn't come any sooner! After a bunch of stressful midterms, I'm ready to have a little break from it all! This year my family is heading up to Lake Tahoe instead of staying home, and although it's supposed to snow (what!?) I can always dream of sunny skies. So lets get going on what you need to bring to have the perfect spring break!

The Perfect Weekender

First things first, you need the perfect bag to pack everything in. Whenever I travel home I have my go to monogram weekender that I use. I can easily fit a week's worth of clothes in it, my laptop, a few school books, and more! Having a great, sturdy weekender is something that you'll need not only for college, but for life!

A Stylish Cover Up

Whether you're headed to the beach or the pool, a cute cover up is a must! If you find one that transitions from pool to casual wear, then you've hit the jackpot. I've been loving ones with pom poms, is anyone else obsessed with that trend as well? Shop a few of my favorites below!


Not just important for a sunny vacation, but for everyday. I always use Neutrogena's Ultra Sheer sunscreen! I have normal to dry skin, and this formula doesn't make me greasy or dry out even more, so it's perfect for me. However, I know everyone's skin is different, so be sure to test what works and doesn't work for you.

Fun, Casual Shoes

If I didn't love cute shoes so much I would spend all day in comfortable flip flops or slippers. The second I see sandals that are both stylish and comfy, I snatch them up! Spring break is the perfect time to break out your flip flops for the beach and then wear some bright sandals while walking around town. Here are some of my favorites!
