Ever since Bridget and I booked our trip to Florida, I was online shopping for spring break attire. As soon as I returned from Winter Break, I started ordering things, and they’ve finally all arrived!
The first thing I ordered were my H&M aviators. I am obsessed with the colored lenses, and I don’t want to bring something to Florida I might lose or break. These were inexpensive enough not to scare me.
Then, I snagged a Lilly Pulitzer sunglass strap from Pea Pod Paper and Gifts, where I’ve ordered a Lilly accessories from in the past. It was relatively cheap and I just like the idea of my sunglasses hanging on my neck when I’m not wearing them, mostly because it will keep me from losing/breaking them.
A few weeks later I ordered a tank top and this skirt from Forever 21, because I really couldn’t say no. First, the skirt looks just like the J.Crew City Mini (which I’ve been dying to have for MONTHS now) but was only $15. WHAT A STEAL. And then the tank is in a pretty blue color that’s not pink or navy (but goes with both) and was under $10. I couldn’t resist. I cannot wait for Florida so I can wear them, probably together.
I also placed an Etsy order for a red flower necklace like the J. Crew one, because I liked the pop of color it gives to otherwise plain outfits. The shop owner ended up sending me the flower one, and the pearl/chain one, which I love equally, and can’t wait to bring with me.
Finally, after browsing what felt like a hundred sites for swimsuits, giving up, and then finding the Outlet section of Asos, I ordered a bikini. I fell in love with this oxblood one last fall while I was just window shopping online, so when I found it on sale online for 15 dollars for the top and bottom with free shipping, I pounced. The top is so unlike anything I have and the color is a nice departure from my usual navy. I like how adult it looks, and I’m pretty sure it will look fab with a tan, too.
And now, we wait for break. I’m basically counting down the hours.
