The moment we have all been waiting for is finally here: Spring Break. While the past week was hard, crammed with late nights, countless midterms and even some snow, it’s time to celebrate! Leave your books behind and grab your vacation essentials: a pair of sunglasses, your favorite bikini and an item in leopard print. You may not consider leopard print a necessity, but when Spring Break is always guaranteed to be a wild time, why not dress like it?
I’m a firm believer that when it comes to leopard print, if you treat it as a neutral it will go with anything. This Fashionista shows the versatility of this print with her top, which is worn tucked into a pair of black high waisted shorts and accessorized with a bright peach colored bag for a fun pop of color.
A sheer blouse like this is the perfect essential for any vacation. Throw it on with a pair of cutoff jean shorts and sandals, and you have chic coverup to wear en route to the beach or pool. Or, try it knotted in the front by tying the two ends together over a loose dress for a breezy dinner outfit that will keep you relatively warm.
Versatility is key when packing for vacation. No one likes to have a jam-packed suitcase that can’t fit many souvenirs in it when going home. As a frequent overpacker, I have learned this the hard way. The key is to pack a few essentials – a pair of jean shorts, a simple dress and a plain top – and a few fun items like a leopard print blouse or bright colored scarf that you can mix and match with your basics to create multiple, memorable outfits. While it’s easier said than done, a simple spread of outfits will leave you with extra time you can spend either at the beach or exploring the town. Because before you know it, this wild time will be over and we’ll be back at school.
