I’m just going to disregard the fact that a week go, I was talking about cold-weather fashions, because…
It’s Spring Break Time!
Ok, so you’re either really excited because you’re about to embark on an epic trip with friends OR super depressed because, well… you no longer get a spring break.
I have good news for you both – The items I’ve hand picked for you below are really more up to your mood more than anything. Vacation or not, it’s time to spice up the dress and accessory game! Spring time means brighter colors, looser fits and an overall happier sense of self (IMO).
OK, let’s dive in!
First up… THE must-have dress of the year is from Express Factory Outlet (I’m calling it). Denim, check! Off-the-shoulder, check! Loose comfy fit, check! Wear it as a cover up or even for travel. You’re sure to get your money’s worth.

The next spring pick-me-up is a new sandal. Call me crazy, but I’m IN LOVE with these Steve Madden lace-up sandals from Saks OFF 5th. Look how fun these are. I dare you to wear these and not have a good time… Let me know how that goes!
If you have plans to go out and hit the town, I found a bright clutch at Banana Republic Factory Store that will carry all your goodies in style. You shouldn’t need to carry much while on vacay so it’s the perfect size! More for looks than function, but I’ll take it!

My favorite accessory is a great pair of sunglasses and Express Factory Outlet came through on a win once again. I’ll even accept the bonus points, given they coordinate perfectly with the BR clutch above. These beauties are definitely more of a spring purchase than a vacation necessity, given I’ll be wearing them everyday for the unforeseen future! 🙂

And last, but certainly not least are spring break accessories. If you haven’t picked up on my theme of the year, it’s color! Use your accessories to brighten up your look this spring. I would even pop these gems on with an all black (or white) workwear look – So chic! Be prepared to answer the infamous question, “OMG where did you get those?” a million times.
So, there you have it! Your Spring Break must-haves! If you’re not currently making a run for your flight, you still have time to visit Tanger and stock up! The great thing about a pre-vacation shopping trip to the outlets is that you aren’t going to break the bank. You can pick up one of everything on your list and still have cash left over for fun in the sun!
If there’s a specific item on your list that you’re having trouble finding, comment below and let me know. I would love to help!
Happy shopping everyone… and remember, if you aren’t in fact participating in “Spring Break” just take a break and shop for spring.
It’s a win win! 😉
