Spring break essentials for your BEST break yet

  • Blog

Who else is excited for Spring Break?! Whether you’re traveling or just relaxing at home, spring break is a wonderful time to unwind especially after working endlessly during the semester.

I’m so excited to be heading to Miami in just five days to temporarily escape this cold weather here in PA. If you’re headed anywhere fun, please share!

I thought it would be fun to share some spring break essentials that will set you up for an amazing spring break this year that you absolutely deserve.

Cute & Trendy Sunglasses

Sunglasses are a MUST during spring break and what’s so great about them now is that you really don’t need to break the bank to pick up a nice pair anymore. My Ray-Ban aviators are my go-to sunnies, but you can find much cheaper and similar ones from places like: Quay, H&M, Zaful, Forever21, Lulu’s and Amazon.

Good Book or Journal

A lot of people (including myself) who love to read usually blame our busy schedules for preventing us from leisurely reading throughout the school year. Spring break is the PERFECT time to catch up with reading. If you’re not into reading as much, I recommend a journal so that you can reflect and capture your spring break adventures. Between free time at home or in between travels, reading and writing are awesome ways to kill time.

Spring Break Playlist

Spring break is not complete without a good playlist. The music industry is on fire right now in terms of new songs and albums that are out; there are so many great things to listen to. I don’t know about you, but creating playlists and sharing them with my friends in my free time is such a fun thing to do!

Tote Bag

With traveling (and these spring break essentials of course,) you’re going to need something to put all of your stuff in! I love a good tote bag because they are stylish, yet hold everything you need! H&M, Madewell and Target are all great places to get one.


When it comes to spring break, a swimsuit is a core essential! Yes, while I do have swimsuits from the summer, spring break is the perfect time to begin your new collection to sport at the beach or pool. Target will ALWAYS be my #1 for suits!!

Tinted Moisturizer

I typically wear tinted moisturizer all year long, but I find that during spring break, the lighter the makeup the better especially if you are going somewhere hot. I love my Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer because it feels like I’m applying nothing more than a moisturizer on while it still gives me a good amount of coverage. On top of that, it has SPF in it which you’ll need a lot of!

Reusable Water Bottle

Reusable water bottles are definitely in right now and you can pretty much find them anywhere! I’ve been seeing Hydroflasks everywhere I look lately, but World Market (one of my favorite stores,) has a lot of cute ones for even cheaper! Besides, hydration is ALWAYS key, spring break or not.

A Camera

With the cameras that we have right at our fingertips, actual cameras don’t seem to be as much of an essential like they used to. During spring break, plenty of memories will be made. Grab your camera and capture it all!

How are you going to be spending your spring break this year? Whether you are going away or staying home, I hope you’ll make sure to do something you absolutely love!
