With Spring Break coming up next month, here are some essentials you should definitely get – before it’s too late – to enhance your vacation!

 

Rainbow Flip Flops

These Rainbow flip flops are definitely a staple in your Spring Break wardrobe. Although not the most fashionable, they are super practical and match with any beach/pool outfit you are putting together. The reason these flip flops stand out from others is due to the comfort, durability, and sustainability they have to offer. I have had my Rainbow Flip Flops for over four  years now and they feel and look the same as when I first got them!

Digital Camera

Recently digital cameras have become all the rage. These cameras provide such a fun and easy way to take vintage looking yet high quality photos. The convenience of the digital camera tops many cameras since it’s so small and can easily fit in a purse, pocket, or bag. There are plenty of options in choosing a digital camera as well, the price of smaller cameras are relatively affordable and allow the consumer to find a variety of options/tools to choose from. Especially for Spring Break to have top tier Instagram pictures, a digital camera is definitely a must have.

Trendy Accent Sunglasses

Any type of unique sunglasses are super trendy right now as they can compliment and top off any outfit perfectly. The variety in pricing, shapes, sizes, and colors definitely allow for so much room to experiment with your outfits. I don’t think anyone can go wrong with a fun pair of sunglasses as they are available pretty much anywhere. I definitely turn to sunglasses as a way to spice up any outfit, especially while on vacation I always am sure to have a pair on hand.

Gold Jewelry

Gold jewelry has definitely become more popular in these past few years and is my personal favorite way to style an outfit. In my opinion, the jewelry you choose to wear has the capability to completely change the aesthetic or vibe you are going for with an outfit. Evry Jewels is one of my personal favorite small boutiques I continually order from to buy sustainable and dainty gold jewelry, for a very affordable price. During Spring Break, I have  heard many girls are striving to complete that “clean girl” aesthetic. One way to achieve that look is by having a necklace stack with small and dainty pieces that can accent off on another. Additionally, big gold hoops have become a staple to the perfect Spring Break outfit as they really just bring the whole look together.

Supergoop Glowscreen

Do you ever hate putting on that thick, white casted, and oily sunscreen during every vacation? Well the Supergoop Glowscreen sunscreen is definitely something I would recommend to anyone who hates the traditional sunscreen texture. This sunscreen comes in numerous shades and leaves a glowy and light feeling upon the skin. It also leaves a clear finish, not a pale and white layer along the face. Leaving your face super moisturized and hydrated it almost seems as if you aren’t even wearing any sunscreen. This is a crucial part of my daily routine when on vacation as I have just fallen in love with the formula and how it looks on anyones skin.

Sunbum Browning Lotion

Sunbum browning lotion is such a good product to use all vacation long if you are looking for a nice tan. The reason I always find myself reaching for this product is not only because of the amazing results but because of the sweet, coffee-like fragrance. This isn’t a substitute for sunscreen but if you layer this on top of your sunscreen it will leave you looking super bronzed and glowy, ready for a day at the beach!

Sun Hat

A sun hat is definitely a necessity on vacation because it’s a stylish yet effective way of staying somewhat hidden by the sun. These straw sun hats along with colored or even patterned sun hats have become increasingly popular, especially because they can elevate any outfit. Amazon has a lot of good options that are relatively cheap for anyone looking to buy a sun hat. 

Beach Tote Bag

Everyone needs a good beach tote bag for their stuff when hanging out at the beach or pool on vacation. Stoney Clover has plenty of cute tote bags to choose from ranging from different sizes to colors, they have anything to satisfy your needs. Usually people need a pretty spacious bag to fit all of their belongings including a towel, sunglasses, sunscreen, headphones and even a book. I can guarantee you that Stoney Clover has an option for you. If you are looking for a more patterned and colorful beach bag, Roller Rabbit has some fun summery prints again with plenty of room to fit your needs. 

 

I hope these essentials help you choose what you may need for the upcoming Spring Break!
