College Series: Spring Break Packing Essentials

The Spring Break countdown has officially begun! Soon enough I will be on a beach with all of my best friends and I could not be more excited. However, with every vaca comes the dreaded time.... packing. Well, to make that a little easier, I made a list of some of the things I will be bringing on Spring Break! So here are my Spring Break essentials: 

Swim Suit |  This is an obvious one, but very important. For Spring Break in a warm destination a cute swimsuit is a must have piece to pack. My biggest tip to save money on cute swimsuits is to buy pieces that can be mixed and matched! That way you can wear something different each day but you only have around 4-5 pieces total. I will be bringing basically every suit I own, but if you would rather pack light stick with classic tops and bottoms that are interchangeable. 

Flip flops |  My biggest advice is bringing flip flops you don't care about. You never know if you will loose them, leave them somewhere, or get them stolen! Old Navy has flip flops for super cheap so hit up there to get a steal. 

Phone case | We all know that Spring Break can get crazy! In other words protect your phone. Although a bare iPhone is visually appealing, you will be very upset if that beautiful phone cracks! I plan on using my Otterbox style case from Amazon. This way I know my phone will be protected from any drops. 

Koozie | Koozies are great for two reasons. You can tell which drink is yours, but they also keep your drink cool. Win-win situation. Not to mention you can get some adorable koozies! 
Here are a few of my favorites: Vineyard Vines, Lauren James, and Fraternity Collection

Croakies | Croakies are also a must have for me! By wearing croakies you will never loose your sunglasses. Well maybe not never..... but it lowers the risk. 

Sunglasses | When it comes to sunglasses my advice is to buy a cheaper pair from a place like Forever 21. This way if they do break it's not the end of the world. Leave your Ray Bans and other expensive shades at home!

Sunscreen | Here is my mom moment: Wear sunscreen! There is nothing worse then burnt skin and exposing yourself to the sun for hours and hours without any protection. 

Fanny pack | For handsfree storage I suggest wearing a fanny pack. I know they are dorky, however one will come in handy when you aren't in the mood to carry all of your stuff. Also, this way you can have your phone, hotel key, and whatever else you need right at your fingertips. 

What are you packing on Spring Break? Let me know in the comments!
