Spring Break: Let's Talk Packing List

Spring break is almost here! Thank goodness. I get on a plane SUPER early tomorrow morning to head to warmer weather, beaches, and sunshine.

Lately I've been struggling with course work overload. So, a much needed break is coming my way. I will be spending spring break with my boyfriend and another couple in Naples, FL. I am so excited to get to go back and hang out at the beach, go shopping, soak up the sun, and take some awesome blog photos! 

Now the question is what to pack! Well, here are the things I am packing for a week in paradise: 
  • 5 of my favorite tees: Instead of wearing cover ups I wear t-shirts with a pair of running shorts! So, naturally, I have to pack a few of my favorite t-shirts to sport on the beach. This spring break I'll be packing lots of Rowdy Gentleman and Jadelynn Brooke tees! In case you want to pick up some of your own Jadelynn Brooke tees be sure to use the code IOWASTMP to get 15% off! 
  • 2 pairs of Krass & Co. shorts: My Krass & Co. shorts are my go-to shorts! They have so many cute designs and are perfect for anything beach or active related. 
  • 4 swim suits: Swimsuits are obviously a must for spring break! My favorite places to get swimsuits are Victoria Secret and Aerie! I just went to Aerie and they had so many cute styles. If your headed to a beach location swimsuits are a given. When I went on spring break last year I brought around 5-6 swimsuits. That way I could just wear a different one each day and I didn't have to worry about them drying. 
  • 1 beach towel: My Lauren James beach towel is my new go-to item for the beach. It is very large so you can either lay on it or use it to dry off. Also, having your own beach towel is super nice so you don't have to borrow other peoples! 
  • 5 Cute dresses: When I go on vacation, especially with my boyfriend, we like to get dressed up and go out to eat. So, I will for sure be packing a few cute dresses including my Lilly Pulitzer frocks (duh!). Even if you don't plan to go out and do a fancy dinner on spring break be sure to pack at least 1-2 dresses just to throw on for an easy outfit. 
  • 3 Casual tops: Casual tops are always nice to have to wear after a long day at the beach for a relaxing night. I usually just bring a cute tee or tank that will go with a pair of chino shorts. 
  • 5 Chino shorts and skirts: When packing I always pack a combination or chino shorts with skirts. My favorite shorts are from J Crew then I also have a bunch of cute skorts from Lilly that I am planning on bringing. 
  • 1 pair of Jack Rogers: Jack Rogers are my go-to sandal of choice. My gold pair matches anything I could wear! Also, it makes packing super easy when I can wear one shoe with practically everything. 
  • 1 pair of pool flip flops: I always pack a pair of "crapy" flip flops to wear at the beach. No one wants to have their favorite sandals all sandy. So be sure to pack a separate pair for the beach or pool 
  • 1 beach tote with beach essentials: My beach bag consists of mainly sunscreen! But having a separate bag for the beach is always handy. I use a tote bag I picked up from the Target and Lilly collab last year. It is oh-sew-cute and colorful!
