Is It Spring Break Yet?

It's the first day of March, and the weather channel is calling for 3-5 inches of snow here in Chicago. This winter has been brutal, and it doesn't seem to be ending anytime soon. Right now, all I can think about is that in 26 days (yes, I'm counting), I'll be in Florida with my whole family. I cannot wait to feel the warm sun on my face!

In order to help beat the winter blues, I created a top 10 list of budget friendly beach essentials.

beach essentials

  1. This flattering, yet functional one-piece swimsuit.
  2. A cheap pair of aviators to throw in your bag.
  3. A floppy hat to protect your head and face.
  4. The perfect romper to take you from the beach to the bar.
  5. Some cheap bling to tie any "beach look" together.
  6. A universal tote, perfect for the beach or bumming around.
  7. Sunblock - it's a no-brainer.
  8. An iPod Shuffle, with the perfect Spring Break Playlist.
  9. These basic sandals, great for all occasions.
  10. A safe water bottle to stay hydrated.
