Spring Break Essentials

If you're a lucky gal like me, you've got some trips coming up! For spring break I will be visiting my brother, his wife and my friend Kati in California. Sunshine and warmth- finalmente! I will also be going on my yearly Cabo trip with my parents in May. Sadly, this might be my last Mexico trip for a while since I'll be in the big, grown up working world!

Vacations to warm places often propose a dilemma for those of us who live up North. We get two months of sunshine a year if we're lucky, and even then, we're lucky if it gets above 75, so it shouldn't come to much of a surprise that we lack real summer clothes! Well, honeys, don't you worry, Brit has got you covered. 

Spring Break 2013 

I'm loving this Nike suit. I'm a big fan of mixing and matching bikini tops and bottoms, it just creates such a unique and interesting look that you'll never get bored of. This one is (kind of) reasonably priced here.

For you one-piecers out there, I might have to join you. This is just too cute, it's like the pictures I set as my computer background when I want to feel happy! This one is also reasonably priced-- it's totally worth it!! You can find it here.

Shorts are a staple, printed shorts are more of a staple. I love these black and white chevron shorts from Charlotte Russe. Sadly, I was not able to obtain the picture from the website, soooo you'll just have to visit the website here and resist the temptation to buy everything. 

This tank is GORGEOUS!! Find it here it comes in a few different colors and is perfect to be paired with shorts, jeans or a skirt. The neckline and cut offer the perfect canvas for a statement necklace or a scarf. The side slit offers a unique twist to an otherwise very basic piece.

These puppies are the DV by Dolce Vita Archer sandal. I'm in love. They're so thin and simple and come in TONS of different colors and textures. What's amazing about these sandals, is that they would look perfect with skinny jeans, colored jeans in a contrasting color, a maxi/midi/mini skirt, dress or shorts. If you'll be walking around town, they have enough of a heel that you won't kill your feet. I want them in the acid yellow with metal detail, too bad I don't have the money. HERE!

Another one I couldn't get the picture for. It's a cute evening dress that is right for any time of year. Classy polka dots in in a timeless silhouette and cute keyhole back, perfect for a nice dinner on the beach or on the town. 

A beautiful statement necklace for your mixing and matching pleasure. I need to buy this. I love the teal color and simple shape. I would suggest pairing this with 1. white tshirt and cut off shorts with some nude sandals, 2. sheer red tank, black mini skirt and some nude mesh booties, which I bought, and love, a ridiculous amount. 

I hope this helps your spring break packing blues! Even if you are not traveling anywhere, you need new summer clothes to improve your mental health... am I right? yes. always. 

Happy shopping!
