[title subtitle="Spring Break 101"]What to Pack[/title]
Hi, LoDown fam! Brittany, here, reporting live from a happy island!
So, here I am, sitting by the pool in Aruba, where it might just be my last official spring break before entering the real world, soaking in the sun, sea, and salty glory. As you know, I’m the girl who’s all about being prepared outfit-wise. Some may call it low-key neuroticism, but I believe in the importance of knowing the in’s and out’s of what you may need to wear at a given time or place. Whether your next trip is a destination with friends on a booze cruise or a quiet weekend with loved ones, wine glass in hand and comfy lounge chairs near by, I’m here to help make packing easier.
To be completely honest, packing has never been something I prided myself on. I either manage to do the best and most organized packing job with both a day and night outfit prepared for each day so that I don’t fuss, or I tend to fail and pack every single thing that I think I’d wear but end up not touching. So, please take it from me, the girl who swore she’d wear that dress, cover-up, and bathing suit, in the first if not second day of her trip—the girl who obviously ended up casting all three of those things aside—to pack lightly when I say pack lightly!
Think simple and easy. You’re never going to see the people you meet on vacation ever again—unless you want to—so try to have the overall experience overshadow your destination wardrobe. Browse below for some of my top cover up, bathing suit, and nighttime outfit picks that will keep you comfortable all break long. Oh, and don’t forget about the sunscreen and moisturizer! You want a long lasting healthy glow, not a short-lived red-lobster glow ;)
