This time last year my boyfriend and I were starting to plan our Spring Break. Now that I’ve graduated, my mind hasn’t caught up with the fact that there is no designated week off in March. Ahh, Sint Maartin, how I would love to still be digging my toes in your sands… Anywho, the New York chill has me longing for island temps, but with no vacation time in sight I thought I’d be nice to all you chillins who do still have the pleasure of Spring Break.
To minimize packing you need to think strategically: how can you make one outfit look like 3 different ones? Below I’ve taken a cute long sleeve maxi dress to show how to take it from a beach coverup in the day to a rockin boho goddess by night.
While spending time at the beach, keep things simple with a wide brim floppy hat to protect your face, neck, and upper chest from the sun. Throw on a string bikini, simple wrap sandals, and a cute tribal fringe tote and you’re ready to go!
To take your look from day to night, strip off the day’s wears and prep for your evening out by gussying up a bit. Slather on a bronze shimmer oil, like the NARS one shown above. Since you’ll be in a tropical setting (hopefully) keep you makeup to the bare-min essentials: bronzer, waterproof mascara, and coral lip gloss. Transfer your evening-necessities to a cute embellished clutch, slip on a gold cocktail ring, long medallion necklace, tassel earrings for jewelry. Strap on your tall gladiator sandals and you’re ready for the night 🙂
