With spring right around the corner, it's time for everyone to take a load off and relax in some nice warm weather. Packing can be daunting, especially if it's a short getaway! It's all about fitting a versatile pieces into a small space. With all of this said, we'd like to make your packing (and vacation) as pleasant as possible with some key essentials that will help you gather your gear and head into your spring vacation in style.
Next to mark off on your checklist is your favorite pair of jeans. Denim is always the classic go-to when packing for a trip and even those of you who favor the pair of denim in your closet that has slowly started to resemble raggedy-Anne, these are trendy too. Own your look and trust your instincts with the best pair of denim you love in your closet and you can’t go wrong.
No matter where you are headed this spring, maxi skirts and dresses are always an essential. They are the perfect day-to-night solution and they’re comfortable! This spring, abstract prints, and hues of blue are a big trend. If you don’t already have one of these in your wardrobe, consider one of these fantastic pieces by Anthropologie and Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent.
Whatever weather you're in, it's going to be sunny, c'mon it's spring time! The classic floppy hat or fedora is also a great essential to have on your spring vacay. It’s a stylish way to keep the sun out of your eyes and always a great accessory to have on hand.
For those of you who are not a fan of hats for whatever reason, and even for those of you who are, make sure you still pack your sunscreen! We all want a sun-kissed tan but we don’t want the wrinkles that result from it! We here at Joonbug recommend an SPF like Hamptons Sun. You won’t miss out on the color and you’ll avoid the damage those UV rays can cause!
A tote is next on the list and this one is crucial ladies. It creates the perfect solution to any situation. If you’re going to the beach, it can carry the day’s necessities, or even if you are going to be out all day into the night, it’s a stylish way to bring everything along for the ride. We love the totes by Carlos Falchi, the faux snakeskin look mixed with the metallic microfiber in so many different colors make them perfect for day or night and still maintain that trend factor for spring without emptying your wallet!
Last but not least are the ever-so-feminine espadrilles or wedges! These fantastic heels are the perfect add to your spring vacation packing list because they are comfortable, classic, and a spring essential in any girls’ wardrobe. These ones by Edmundo Castillo, Pour La Victoire, and Calvin Klein are classic with a trendy twist, and great inspiration for styles to come in spring 2012!
