Really, Chicago? More snow? If you’re anything like us, you’re ready to put away your winter accessories and rock your short, denim cutoffs. But apparently Mother Nature wants Chicago to keep those heavy scarves handy for a little while longer. Last Friday marked the first day of spring, and we couldn’t be more excited because that means spring break is almost here! Hello sunshine, goodbye snow. We can almost feel the rays on our skin and the sand between our toes.
Before you take off to paradise, it’s important to have all the right warm-weather essentials. Even though the Windy City isn’t playing by the rules of the season, spring break shopping is the perfect time to prepare your wardrobe for hotter days. And Vintage Charm makes shopping for spring break as stress free as the trip you’re taking. Below features VC staff picks and customer favorites for spring break you will want to have in your luggage.
Hot-climate must haves include lightweight dresses to wear as a swimsuit cover-up or for walks on the beach, denim shorts to pair with bright, patterned tops and versatile shoes you can take from day to night. We recommend our Billabong tie-dye fringe dress and our Free People Shark Bite denim shorts! And our new graphic, Bucketfeet slip-ons and Sanuk sandals are the perfect vacay shoes. Accessories are key for a week-long getaway. Although we all wish we could take our whole closet on vacation, we simply can’t. Oversized shades, vibrant Lily & Laura bracelets and statement totes are great accessories to complete any outfit. See below for a few of Vintage Charm’s top picks for spring break.
