Is it just me or does it feel like Winter break just ended? This year has been flying by but it’s Spring break season so we aren’t complaining. Packing the essentials is easy but planning out the perfect Instagram-worthy outfits can be tough. Let the Charlotte boutiques help you out with their top picks of bathing suits and cover-ups, dresses for dinners on the beach and casual day-time wear. Don’t forget to accessorize! 

Need a few packing tips? Here’s what I do: 

  • Make a list of what you’re going to need. Include the essentials (sunscreen, floppy hat, and sunglasses if you’re going somewhere tropical) and the different outfits you’ll need each day. This helps tremendously if you tend to overpack. 
  • Wear your layers on the plane – it gets cold and this saves room in your suitcase 
  • Pack an outfit in your carry on in case your luggage gets lost plus anything you’d hate to lose (expensive jewelry)
  • Fold (or roll if you’re a fan of that) your clothes neatly, arranging by outfit or clothing category 
  • Travel size steamers are your friend –  Amazon Prime has great options if you do not already have one
