Spring Break Packing List

I am SO overjoyed that Spring has finally sprung and it's almost time for Spring Break! I know some schools have already had theirs, but LSU always plans ours the week before Easter, so it's a week full of fun and sun that ends with really nice family time - my favorite! This year, Myles and I are going to Amelia Island again. I cannot wait to be riding my bike to the beach every morning and having lobster rolls for lunch! Today, I've included the things I'll be packing, as well as a few of my spring favorites. If you need cute tops to pair with jeans, high waisted shorts, or super cute dresses, you'll love these picks!

What I'm Packing: 

1. Sunblock!!
This is honestly the most important thing I ever pack. It's SO important to always protect your skin, especially in harsh summer sun, and I always go 35+. I also use this It Cosmetics foundation that has SPF 50 when I'm going out in the sun but want to look nice. It doesn't dry me out and stays on all day! I also bring tons of aloe vera because a sunburn is inevitable for me.

2. Straw Hat + Baseball Cap
I love a little straw fedora for shopping and bike riding, but a ball cap for beach time or an early morning workout. You get sun protection, but you also don't have to worry about salt water hair, two birds with one stone! 

3. Plenty of cute dresses, tops, and shorts 
Some of my favorites that are 100% coming with me are linked below, but I linked even more, all under $100 here. Loving the light fabrics and nautical colors I've been seeing in new arrivals, plus high waisted seersucker shorts? Yes please!
 
4. Easy snacks to throw in my bag
I am planning on packing dried cranberries, almonds, and some low fat cheese sticks. Easy to pack and you get a good mix of protein, fat, and a little sugar. If you want more healthy snack options, I just did a post on the ones I'm loving last week!

5. Headphones and a book for the beach (recommendations here)
I am always so tempted to either fall asleep or zone out on my phone when I have free time, but I'm planning on bringing only books to the beach this year, with the exception of a good playlist! I think vacation is such a good time to relax and refresh and getting lost in a good book is such a good way to do that. I linked a bunch above and can't wait to share which ones I pick up in April with y'all!

6.  A few swimsuits, cute towels, and an easy to throw on coverup!

I haven't bought any new suits this year, but I'm loving this scalloped one piece, this off the shoulder ruffle one, and this seersucker bikini! That bikini has been in my cart forever and I'm thinking I may have to scoop it up before we leave!
