Come April, we only have one thing on our mind: spring break. It’s the one week where we can forget about our homework and leave our heavy textbooks behind for some quality time with friends. And while some are jetting off to European destinations and chilly skiing trips, we have to say we’re partial to sunny beaches dotted with palm trees rather than snow-covered pines. Because really—what’s more relaxing than watching nightly sunsets with your toes planted firmly in the sand?
The only thing standing in the way of our bliss? The act of packing. While cute outfits are required for our Instagram Boomerangs, we also need to cover the absolute essentials so we’re not spending precious time at the drugstore searching for sunscreen once we reach our destination. Because we care, we asked our community to share their must-haves for seven stress-free days of fun. From beach totes to the perfect pair of sunglasses from Primark’s new spring break collection, these are the essentials to pack for your spring break getaway. Bon voyage!
