Pack Your Bags: Spring Break!

Spring Break – that blissful break in the middle of second semester, giving you a taste of summer at the end of winter. Well, it is almost here, so it’s time to pack your bags. We have all your necessities for the different stages of your vacation, and we’re ready to help with any of your travel needs.

Up first, the RIDE. Whether driving or flying, you’ll want some activities. We’ve shown a Vera Bradley Preppy Poly cosmetic filled with Smickers, Smencils and a Vera Bradley diary – perfect for doodling, writing and playing hangman. Other items to throw in: a book, a card game or an mp3 player.

Of course, you also need somewhere to put your hard-earned allowance and your phone. We suggest the Vera Bradley preppy poly wristlet, which has a front zip pocket for your phone. May we also suggest a Vera phone case? This tropical print is cute, fun and functional. Keep your money from getting lost with a quotable coin purse, which fits perfectly in the wristlet with room to spare.

Of course, every spring break trip requires a travel bag. This preppy poly Vera Bradley duffel has the perfect amount of room. In case you’re flying, we suggest attaching a furball keychain to identify it. We’ll break down your packing list for you too! PJ’s: fluffy Candy Pink shorts, a Ragdoll & Rockets tank and Living Royal space puppy socks. Going to Dinner Outfit: Truly Me dress. Shorts outfits x 2: 7for All Mankind shorts, Ragdoll & Rockets long-sleeve hot pink tee and short-sleeve turquoise tee. White jeans outfits x 2: DL1961 white denim, Vintage Havana fringed tank and a Junk Food emoji-hearts tank. All-purpose footwear: jeweled Nina sandals. Plus, you’ll still have plenty of room for your beach bag and all your toiletries & accessories.

Spring Break Packing: THE BAG

This small preppy poly cosmetic from Vera Bradley is the perfect size for accessories and small toiletries. We suggest a Bari Lynn pompom hair tie, the new Tonya Barlow tassel initial necklace, some Baked Beads earrings (if you have pierced ears), and some Ella & Mila nail polish. We’ve plenty of options to coordinate colors!

Spring Break Packing: Accessories/Toiletries

Last, but not least, no Spring Break trip is complete without a trip to the Beach or the Pool. Vera Bradley’s ditty bag is fully lined and comes in both pink and blue. We picked out a colorful Gossip Girl one-piece and some coordinating (not matching!) Havaianas. And of course, you’ve got to protect those gorgeous peepers, so we threw in some Quay sunglasses as well. Grab a VB beach towel and some sunscreen and you’re water-ready.
