You bring the party, we’ll do the rest
FINALLY. Spring break is here. January lasted about three years too long. February felt like a week, and now spring break is here. If you’re like the majority of college girls, you’re taking every last-minute babysitting job you can to make some quick cash and trying to figure out whether Ulta or Sephora has better self-tanner. Mousse or lotion, right? Wipes or spray? Too many options.

50 lb. limit, yikes
Who decided 50 pounds is the limit?? If you’re anything like me, you pack everything you own “just in case.” Hopefully this guide can help you narrow down your entire wardrobe so that you don’t travel to another country and bring your entire closet along. It’s time to pull out the white pants and light colored pieces to show off that #sb2018 tan. This tie-dye two-piece dress is perfect for dinner & drinks after a long day on the beach. Perfect colors for showing off tan and maybe a little bit of sunburn?? (wear sunscreen!! keep reading for top picks)
Girls just wanna have sun
Sunscreen, ladies! It’s so important. I heard one time that you get tanner from wearing sunscreen than from going in the sun without it. That was probably a trick from my mom, but hey, it stuck with me. But really, even if you only put on SPF 15 that is better than going without. Sun Bum and Hawaiian Tropic are my two favorites. Both smell super beachy and Hawaiian Tropic even makes a kind with sparkles. Sun Bum has SPF 30 lip balm too that comes in a variety of flavors: coconut, banana, watermelon and more. Both brands are relatively cheap, but it’s also your skin we’re talking about so it’s also totally normal to splurge. Moral of the story: wear sunscreen!
Aloe. Don’t be the girl to forget aloe. In the event you forget to reapply or if you doze off in the sun, make sure to pack aloe in your beach bag. I don’t know if aloe is proven to help sunburns, but it sure does feel good. And while you’re at it. Pack after-sun lotion too. It keeps your skin from feeling tight after being in the sun and provides good moisture after a long day on the beach.
And to answer that previous question about self tanner– St. Tropez lotion. Immediate results, no streaks and it smells good! Ulta is the place to purchase.
Half of my spring break clothes are white
Don’t worry, this is totally normal. No matter how freckled, tanned or burnt you get on spring break, wearing white will highlight those tan lines. This Free People sweater would look perfect with white jeans or light wash jean shorts. Always pack a light sweater to throw on over a tank top or dress for nighttime. The wind at the beach can get chilly… and sunburn can make you cold too.
White nail polish is a popular pick for spring break too. Light-colored nails help you look more tan, and they also just look really good on everyone.
Add some gold jewelry to your white-themed outfit, and you will look flawless for sure.
Effortless perfection is the goal
This has never been me and will never be me. Pictures on the beach usually go like this for me: my skin is splotchy either from sunburn or ocean water/sand/sunscreen mix, and my hair is absolutely everywhere. Normal, tame hair? Nope. I don’t know how girls manage that. No uneven sunburn or weird tan lines? Not me either. I can’t control the wind wherever you’re going but at least your outfits can be #onfleek.
These spring break essentials will get you a few steps closer. Tkees has the perfect flip-flops for walking to and from the beach. They come in almost every color, and they make them in “foundation” tones too so they can match your skin. For when you want to lay down on your stomach to tan or for cute pics in the sand, Las Bayadas has the best towels. They make towels using fun, bright colors and you can get tassels on your towel too.
