Spring Break Packing List

what's on my family's must-have list


Spring Break Essentials

Since we are heading on Spring Break next week I wanted to share my packing list! I am so ready for a Beach Vacation, I can hardly wait!!

Sunscreen: COOLA

I love spray sunscreen especially for the kids. COOLA smells amazing (they even have a Pina Colada Scent!) and it feels so light! Shop on COOLA.com or Sephora.

Sunnies: J Crew

I am all about oversized shades and the Cabana Oversized Sunglasses from JCREW were such an amazing find. Spotted on one my girlfriends on a recent boating day, I immediately headed home to order them online. Only $65.00, they are the perfect price for a trip with the kids where my toddler will be ripping them off my face!! I bought them in pink and tan. Shop on JCrew.com.

Hair Accessories: Give me everything for Beach Hair!

From Hats, to headbands, to scrunchies, beach time means salty hair, don’t care. I found well-priced items on Nordstrom, like this gingham headband and this tassel straw beach hat. Then for a splurge I found LoveShackFancy scrunchies and a Lele Sadoughi Headband on ShopBop.

Trendy Towels: PB Teen

Spotted on PB Teen, these Emily & Meritt Cabana Towels can work for me or the kids, and of course I love the colors!! Shop on PBTeen.com.

Kids Swimsuits: Minnow Swim

I am IN LOVE with Minnow Swim Suits for my kids. So precious, and best of all – matching prints for your little girls and boys. The girl suits always have the sweetest ties and details!! Shop on MinnowSwim.com (here is the Hazelnut Stripe print I chose).

My Suit: Milly

I recently bought this Milly “Palm Print” two piece and I feel like it’s going the be the highlight of my instagram over the trip. Shop on Bloomingdales. (Note the top and bottom are sold separately!)

Coverups: Poupette St Barth

I have loved this line for a few years now but what I love most is that these playful print rompers and dresses can be worn as coverups or as an outfit. So versatile!! For my trip I bought the Mila Lace Trim Romper for a day at the pool and the Ola Off-The-Shoulder Blouse to pair with high waisted white jeans one night. Shop on Saks.com.

Makeup with SPF: IT Cosmetics

I am obsessed with this line of products year round because the “Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream” coverage is SO GOOD (I wear it as my everyday foundation!), but I especially love the products when I am in the sun because the CC Cream has SPF 50+! Shop on itCosmetics.com or Sephora.

Accessory Essential: Hoops

Hoops instantly dress up an outfit from a sundress to a pair of white jeans. I have bought so many lately – from classic gold to multi colored!! These Lola Hoops have been my go-to lately from day to night out, while these bright and colorful hoops are perfect for vaca!

Vacation Shoes: Anything Espadrille

When I’m on a beach vacation, I hate wearing fancy heels, but at the same time I don’t love the idea of something too flat. So the perfect middle ground – platform espadrille sandals!! How cute are the Daisy Two Bow Platform Espadrille Sandals by Loeffler Randall on Shopbop. And for those of you who still want a wedge, they have it with a heel as well (here).

Fab Bag: Cult Gaia

Cult Gaia Bags scream beach trip. Made from slim strands of bamboo with cutout handles, I love my Small Gaia’s Ark Bag in the classic tan color. They also have some gorgeous blues as well! Shop the line on Shopbop.

Spring Scent: Jo Malone

If you are craving a new scent for the new season, this is it! Jo Malone’s Wild Flower & Weeds Collection is filled with the nicest scents and the bottles couldn’t be prettier! Shop on JoMalone.com or at Nordstrom (personally I like the Willow & Amber Cologne).
