Spring Break Essentials

I will be spending over 24 hours in a car next weekend.

As horrifying as it sounds, it will be worth it. Four friends and I are road tripping to Sanibel Island, Florida for our spring break next weekend. Five girls in a hotel, zero plans or obligations, and lots of sunshine are what I'm craving right now!

I never really understood when people would say that they need a vacation from work or life. In high school, I was always relatively relaxed and took time off when I wanted it or needed it. However, lately I have really felt the stress of being a college student creeping up on me. 

Social events (which are much more stressful than they sound), study abroad applications (TBA), tough Economics classes, and extracurricular obligations have really piled up this semester, and there's been more than once that I've found myself under the covers, a giant bowl of breakfast cereal in my hands, binge-watching House of Cards to ignore everything that was going on.

In other words, I really need a week of sun, friends, and relaxation!

If you're heading out for spring break with your friends, here are a few essentials to bring with you (besides car snacks, audio books, and some good music!)

A cute and trendy carry-all:
1. straw tote 2. sport mesh bag 3. striped duffle 4. leather backpack

Also, for some fun accessories, make sure to pack:

  • cute sunglasses
  • a fun towel (New Yorker towels at are on sale and super cute!)
  • quirky luggage tags 
  • a bright makeup bag

1. ray-ban sunglasses 2. new yorker beach towel 3. luggage tag 4. floral makeup bag

Are you going on a spring break trip? What are your spring break essentials? 


  1. All of these things are so cute! I need a vacation but unfortunately we had our spring break in February (weird, isn't it?) Either way, it wasn't much of a spring break since I had meetings almost every day - oh the joys of law school! Either way, though, I hope that you have an amazing spring break! Sounds like it'll be a wonderful time :)
