Spring Break-Up


Warm weather, salty sea air, tan skin and sunshine...sounds like a line straight out of a Luke Bryan song, right? Unfortunately as I've gotten older, I've had to break-up with the concept of spring break as I hoard my coveted vacation days for a later time. Therefore I'm sittin' pretty in the not-so suntan city (okay, that is a Luke Bryan lyric...kinda) of Indianapolis, Indiana–in March may I add–drooling over the sunny vacations spots that other bloggers have had the opportunity to visit. I think it's safe to say that this girl is green, not tan, with envy.

BUT, fear not friends, I still have spring break-esque picks for when the weather warms up. This brings me to my spring break must-haves for your upcoming vacation. While I normally can be found in a two-piece bikini (drink in hand) on the beach, I couldn't help but showcase this adorable polka dot one-piece bathing suit. It is dying to be worn and I think I might have to snatch up this cute number for my vacation I'm taking in December. (Ya, I have to wait that long. {sigh}) No vacation is complete without an adorably comfortable pair of flip flops and stylish cover up, too.

I don't know about you guys, but I spend my time on the beach catching up on my reading and always like to have a queue of books lined up. But my tablet is totally protected from the harsh sun and sand by a case, like this Kate Spade tablet cover. Cat eye sunglasses and a beach hat always make their debut through the day from time to time to give my face a break from the rays. Tie this look together with a brightly colored beach towel and a beach tote to store your sunscreen, water and other essentials.

My vacation seems so far away, but hopefully I'll be able to take some long weekends here and there throughout the year to break-up my office stircraziness. What about you guys? What vacations destinations are you planning on visiting this year?

    1. I know, right?! It is so adorable, but we aren't sure we want to commit to just one suit for the season.

    1. We are BIG fans of cat eye sunglasses. They are such a flattering shape and the little gold accents on these are too cute to pass up.
