Ultimate Spring Break 2017 Shopping Guide!

     We might only be technically halfway through the winter season, but it's never too early to start thinking about Spring Break! Ah... Spring Break. The epitome of being a college student. I never went on any of the crazy stereotypical trips, but I still had a wonderful and memorable time each year. My freshman year of college I went home to Maine, and the latter three years my dad and I went on warm-weather vacations together. These ended up being some of my favorite college memories!

     If you're a current college student (or even a high school senior!), I'm sure that you've already started making your Spring Break plans. You might be headed on a beach road trip, setting sail on a cruise, or even jetting off somewhere international. And even if you're hanging around closer to home, hopefully a fun staycation is on your radar!

     Sadly this year since I'm a college grad, I won't be heading out on any Spring Break trips. My current focus is completing my broadcasting school courses and internship next month, and continuing my rapid-fire approach to job applications.  But hey- a girl can dream right?!

     Today I've rounded up a bunch of my top picks for Spring Break shoppers. The absolute cutest and best picks in swimwear, dresses and rompers, and various warm weather styles that are under $20. There's something here for every budget!




     Are you headed on any fun warm weather vacations soon? 

     And a reminder to take the first-ever Southern Belle in Training reader survey if you haven't yet! It'll be open until next Wednesday. I'm loving hearing y'all's feedback about my blog!

  1. I love your picks! I am having such a hard time not shopping for spring break this year!

  2. Great picks! I'm only going to Chicago so it'll still be a bit chilly, but I love the black one piece with the ruffle top!

  10. Literally one of the top reasons why I chose to be a teacher was that I would get breaks like Spring Break each year! I won't be jet-setting off to a tropical location, but I will be taking advantage of the time off to spend with my family & my pup...and probably doing some spring cleaning too-oh, the joys of adulthood :)

  14. So many great picks! My birthday is always near Spring Break so I love to grab some goodies and take a trip somewhere!

  15. Rompers are perfect for spring break! I have one already picked out (bought it during a winter sale haha) and I have way too many swimsuits too!
