Spring Break- Beach Necessities

This time next week, I will be packing up and heading to the beach with my friends for spring break! The many perks (ok might be an exaggeration) of being a 25 year old still in school..yay for 2.5 more years. [Insert exam countdown here]

 

Teal Bikini // Floral Bikini // Pink Bottoms // Sunglasses // Donut Float // Towel // Flip Flops // Evian Spray // Sunscreen // Beach Tote // Hat // Technology Wipes

Bikini: I absolutely love this style from Victoria Secret. I decided to try it on just to see what the style was about and I’m glad I did! I always find bathing suits to be so uncomfortable, but this fit and felt similar to wearing a sports bra (which is way more comfortable in my humble opinion). Plus, gotta love the ruffles!

Mirrored Sunglasses: I’m not gonna lie, I feel like a rock star when I’m wearing these glasses. My favorite color combination + aviators.. had to have them! And I think they look even better at the beach.

Donut Float: Well who wouldn’t want to float around in a sprinkled donut?!

Towel: Pretty much a given beach necessity. Doesn’t hurt to lay out on a cute one!

Flip-Flops: Pink and a bow and Tory. Really no further explanation is needed.

Evian Spray: I always bring a hydrating facial spray with me to the beach because it’s always refreshing on my hot skin. Plus, if you happen to get a little too much sun, it’s cooling on the skin and might relieve some of the pain!

Sunscreen: This is probably the most important item to bring to the beach (coming from a strawberry blonde that is..) We all know putting sunscreen on the beach basically sucks.. sticky + sand is not a good combination, but we do it because we know the consequences (skin cancer//wrinkles..no thanks!). Coola is an organic sunscreen that contains less alcohol content than regular brands, so if you’re someone who uses self tanner/ gets spray tans that’s a must to preserve your faux glow.

Beach Tote: Gotta have something to carry the necessities.

Hat: I always bring a hat with me to the beach, mostly because I put it over my face to make it darker.. and therefore take that really relaxing sun nap. Plus, it helps if you like to read at the beach.. which brings me to my last item.. don don don.

Technology Wipes: This is probably something really nontraditional to include as a beach necessity, but with today’s world we always have our gadgets on us. I don’t know about you, but after putting sunscreen on I notice my screen gets crazy greasy, and makes it harder to read the screen. Here is the solution!

Of course, there’s other beach necessities to think about: a chair, chap stick with a SPF, a football (yep I’m that girl), headphones/music, cold water to stay hydrated, snacks.. etc.

Do you have any vacations coming up??

  • Celebrating two years together today 💕 
@shelbyraephotographs captured these photos for our one year anniversary at the same venue we got married. If you’re contemplating doing an anniversary shoot... I highly recommend it! I went all out and did a DIY floral bouquet (that I held the entire drive worried they would tip over, brought our cake topper hoping it wouldn’t melt in the car, and our vows to re-read to each other. You can see the full recap on Strawberry Chic 🍓(search One Year at the top right corner)

I’ll definitely be sharing some of my tips with y’all soon on Strawberry Chic if they work for me. I hope y’all are having the best weekend enjoying this Fall weather 💕.

  • Happy Friday Friends! Welcoming the Fall weather with the windows open in the John household. Why does the Fall air feel more refreshing and clean?? 🤷🏼‍♀️ I went ahead and ordered another color in this slim puffer vest on sale under $20. I live in them at work because I’m always cold but it doesn’t restrict me from working on patients. My ruffle sweatshirt is part of a sale on sale and under $25. It’s made a second appearance on my feed so you know it’s good and it will go fast💕.

  • I see you Friday 🙌🏼 This post is going up a little late because I lost track of time de stressing in a hot bubble bath 💆🏼‍♀️ Y’all may have noticed on IG stories today took it out of me. Anyone else a fan of taking baths?? This wrap sweater was featured in my Abercrombie try on haul (swipe up in my try on highlight to see all my styled looks). If you buy anything from the haul I recommend the lace cami because you will wear it under everything!

  • Not sure about the pajama trend? This blouse is an easy way to pull it off. Not to mention, it feels like my pillow case and I’m all about that 🙌🏼 This look would be perfect for date night and I’ve been loving this rust color paired with the unexpected blush. But let’s be real, y’all know I’ll pair anything with blush. 💕 This look is from my recent @abercrombie try on haul. Swipe up in stories to watch if you missed it!
