Headed for an oceanside escape this spring break? Not without these essentials! From sunless tanning mousse to the perfect cover up, we’ve rounded up our favorites to make sure your vacation is as seamless and relaxing as possible. Even if you are only dreaming of an oceanside vacation, these FINDS can come in handy during Nashville’s warmer months. Read on to see our beach-bound FINDS!
If you’re headed to the beach and need a place to keep your lip balm, keys, phone and wallet, this is the perfect pouch. Complete with cute sayings like “May you always be happy,” they’ll make your day a little brighter, too! Find these for $10 each at Raine.
Toss this in your suitcase, and plan to wear it many ways! The striped jumpsuit is perfect for a pool-side lunch, or it can be glammed up for an elegant evening. When you return to Nashville, pair it with a jean jacket and wear it for months to come. Find this versatile number at SVM Boutique for $42.
Every outfit needs an accessory, and our go-to is earrings. These tassel earrings come in the perfect pastel pink, which will go nicely with a beachy outfit and a new tan! Be sure to pack these, $25 at AshBlue, for your spring break vacation.
Weekend tote and straw hat
Where better to make use of a tote bag and straw hat than the beach? Use the tote to hold your beach reads, sunscreen and towel, and use the hat to shade you from the sun — and keep you looking fashionable. Each of these finds is $38 at Habit.
St. Tropez bronzing mousse
Get a base tan before you don your swimsuit on spring break. St. Tropez continues to be one of our favorites as it is easy to apply and doesn’t have a strong scent. Your tan will last up to 10 days with the help of the bronzing mousse, $42 to $45 at The Cosmetic Market.
These cat-eye sunglasses by Allied Metal Works are stylish — and practical. Of course, sunglasses are always a practical item to bring when traveling somewhere sunny, but you will use these daily, year round. Invest in these frames for $750 at Barton Perreira.
Leave your beach tote behind when you hit the town for dinner and drinks. Straw bags have their place in our spring and summer rotation, and we love the many shapes and sizes offered at Epergne. We found a favorite in the crossbody for $150.
This patterned scarf can double as a cover-up or lightweight wrap. Thanks to the neutral and muted color tones, it can pair with just about anything. Snag this scarf at Elle Gray for just $39.99.
Charleston Rice Beads
The turquoise Charleston Rice Beads are a must for spring! The versatile chain can be worn at its longest length (at 5′ around!), doubled around your neck, tripled to make a choker or even wrapped around your wrist as a bracelet. We consider turquoise a neutral, so it’s easy to pair this with just about anything. Find the Charleston Rice Beads necklace for $65 in SB Shop.
Whether at the beach or by the pool, we are always looking for the perfect combination of trendy and comfortable coverups. This mandarin kimono by Nashville’s own Turkish-T is light enough for those hot summer days with enough coverage to feel comfortable. Find it for $90 in SB Shop.
Happy spring break shopping!
