Hello my favorite readers! Have you been staying warm with these chilly temps? With one too many grande mochas I’ve finally knocked off the chill this morning!
While I have loved strutting around in my coats, scarves and booties, I can’t help but daydream of some warmer times once we hop into spring. (Mostly due to the new outfits each season brings.)
Spring is one of the best times to vacay in my opinion. It’s not stifling hot and with kiddos and fams still in the swing of the school year, there are a few more options when it comes to booking your stay.
Every year my girlfriends and I take a trip in March and this week we’re deciding where to go and what to do so I’m sharing my tips with you! Whether you’re hitting the beach with the gals, headed on a romantic getaway with that special someone or having a stay-cation in your hometown, these tips will have you vacationing like a pro.
How-To #1: Plan Ahead!
Get a head start, trust me. With early planning comes cheaper hotel rates and flights and plenty of time to get everything in order. Grab a planner (choosing a pretty one from Francesca’s makes this task more fun :)) and jot down a list of to-do’s before you head out. Remember, the sooner the better!
How-To #2: Packing
Okay, now for fashion talk. Packing for a spring vacay is all too simple with Tanger Outlets. It’s my shopping go-to for finding all I need at swoon-worthy prices. For any destination, there are a few staple pieces I’m always sure to include in my bag. Shall we begin?
A Flowy Shirtdress
Express Factory Outlet | Tencel Shirtdress
The first item I always include is a flowy shirtdress or tunic. It’s so versatile for any vacation. It tucks in perfectly to light skinnies or shorts (try tying the side up if you’re brave enough) and serves as a great cover up if you’re hitting the beach or lake.
A Chic Heel
Okay ladies, this is obvious. Always pack a heel! There’s bound to be an occasion for it between a fancy dinner or night out. I’m loving this pop of green. What do you think?
A Staple Sunny
Express Factory Outlet | Aviator Sunglasses
Kiss those dangerous rays away with your fave pair of sunnies. I know this item seems obvious, but it can slip your mind in the midst of packing!
How-To #3: Enjoy & Relax
Perhaps the most important. Vacation days can seem few and far between in the working world. So be sure to make the most of it!
So now to the best part, where to first?!
