Spring Break Essentials

by Alexandra Machover April 1, 2013

Spring break has been approaching ever so slowly this year (so has spring for that matter), and if you’re like me, you are ready for a (warm) vacation. This year I’m making my getaway even more special by treating myself to a few essentials that will keep me looking cool under the sun. 




1.Retro Inspired Bikini

High-waisted yet sexy, flirty yet coy, a vintage-inspired bathing suit is my swimwear of choice this season. This style honors a woman’s curves while leaving something to be desired. Go for a funky vibe with bold prints or keep it classic with simple color blocks. Either way, you’ll definitely be the most fashion forward swimmer at the pool.




2.  Jewels at the pool


No outfit is complete without an accessory or two, even if that outfit is a bathing suit and flip-flops. Which brings me to my next Spring Break essential—statement jewelry. Rather than accessorizing with plastic party beads this year, choose a bejeweled necklace, chandelier earrings or stacked bangles (or all three for that matter).



3.  A Printed Scarf


While SPF and sunglasses are staple items for when you’re under the hot sun, sometimes it’s refreshing to protect yourself from the heat in a more creative, stylish way. That’s when a printed scarf comes in handy. Tie one around your head to stay cool or drape it over your shoulders to prevent them from burning. Silky scarves are an accessory that is both practical and cute… what more can you ask for? 

These essentials are some that I’ll definitely be rocking this Spring Break. Be sure to keep updated with my vacation fashion endeavors on my blog, Spur of the Moments.
