What to Pack for Spring Break

Accessories laid out on a white ottoman. Straw hat with black bow, blue mirrored sunglasses, black crossbody bag with chain strap, pink and navy palm print bikini and black belt with gold buckel.

It’s spring break time and I’m packing for my trip.

I'm heading to Palm Beach, Fl for a last minute Spring vacation and I thought I’d share my tips on what to pack. I only take one carryon bag which means packing light. This can be quite difficult, but I've come up with a packing plan.


Shoes - Start by packing the shoes.

I start by choosing two pairs of comfortable shoes, one to wear and the other to pack. For this trip I’m wearing these rockstuds on the plane, which can double as night time shoes.  These are really comfortable despite the fact that they are heels. Then the flatforms I’ll pack and wear during the day and to the beach and pool since they’re waterproof.
Black flatforms and black rockstud shoes.

Tops - Pack transitional solid colour tops.

Next I pack solid colour tops that go with everything. I try to include a mix of lightweight and heavier tops for air conditioning and weather changes. For this trip I’m packing a jean shirt, a super lightweight black cardigan, a black sleeveless top, a pink sleeveless top, and a white short sleeve button down.Tops laid out on ottoman. A jean shirt, a super lightweight black cardigan,and a black sleeveless top.

Bottoms - Pack solids and one or two prints.

When choosing the bottoms I like to get creative, though this trip is mainly casual so I packed two pairs of solid colour shorts for the beach and casual day time activities. Then a fun print skirt and a beige ruffled skirt for dressier events.
Two pairs of shorts on ottoman. One beige and one white.
Two skirts on ottoman. One beige with ruffles and the other printed with black and yellow floral design.


Dresses - Pack dresses that can transition from day to night.

I like to pack at least two dresses that can go from day to night. For this trip I chose a long sleeve printed silk dress  and a sleeveless blue dress. Both of these look great with both pairs of shoes, which is an important factor.

Accessories - Accessories are key when packing.

This is the most important category since accessories will take an outfit from casual to dressy and from day to night. For this trip I’m packing a floppy hat, a small purse that matches both pairs of shoes, sunglasses, and belt that can be worn with both dresses. I’m also packing some earrings and a few necklaces as well as my makeup bag.(not shown here.) And I can't forget my a bathing suit and a cover up (not shown.)Accessories laid out on a white ottoman. Straw hat with black bow, blue mirrored sunglasses, black crossbody bag with chain strap, pink and navy palm print bikini and black belt with gold buckel.


Don't Forget the Airport Outfit

I choose this outfit way in advance mainly because I hate traveling and am super nervous the day of. So for my airport outfit, I’m wearing a sweater and jeans because it tends to be cold on the plane.Blue sweater and jeans on ottoman.
In my next few posts I'll show you how I style these items while on vacation. I actually don't enjoy traveling, but my husband and relatives always plan these trips so I thought I'd share some of my Spring adventures. Are you going anywhere fun for Spring break? Do you enjoy traveling? Do you pack light for vacations? 

I hope you are having a wonderful day! Thank you very much for stopping by.

  13. This is all fantastic advice! I completely agree with all of it...and all also do this when packing for trips. My only struggle with packing is getting my liquids into the quart sized bag - I hate that! But I love traveling, haha. :) I hope you enjoy Palm Springs!!

  14. Great tips! I always start with shoes too, and a jacket/coat as they are the most bulky/ heavy items to pack, then I can fit my color scheme round this :)

  28. Wow I wish I was heading to Palm Beach! We don't really do 'Spring Break' in Australia but in general I do really enjoy travelling and I enjoy packing for trips as well. Usually when I'm packing I find that sticking with basic pieces and solid colours works best for me :)
