Spring Break Essentials for the Entire Family


Thank you to WalMart for sponsoring this post! 

This year we're headed back to our family fave Spring Break destination: Hilton Head Island, SC! I am so excited for our little get away - and I'm already packing and planning.

I thought it would be fun to share what I've already got on hand and what I've picked up for the fam. 


Many of these items are my tried and trues, but I could resist adding in a few new WalMart Fashion faves to our packing list. Ya'll know my love of Walmart 2 day delivery runs deep and after finding the best one piece swimwear at WalMart last week, I am confident that my desire to "add to cart" on the Walmart site is never going away. 

Ok, wanna see what I found?



1. After Sun Gel: I love La Roche-Posay products and this after sun gel is amazing to have on hand - especially during that first-time-in-the-sun all year Spring Break trip.

2. Lip Protectant and Sunscreen: perfect to toss in your pool bag and leave there, this little tube will both heal dry or chapped lips and protect them with SPF 30

3. Wet Brush: this is what I use on both my own fine/tangly hair but also on Georgia's. Nothing makes our hair hander to handle than chlorine, so we'll only pack the Wet Brush for this trip.

4. Girl's Dresses: a two pack of dresses for less than $10! These soft cotton tank dresses are a dream to pack and play in.

5. Nail Polish: I am forever chipping my gel manicure (anyone else get little snags in their mani?!) so I bring a back up - nothing worse than a mani that catches on everything while on vacation!

6. Clear Purse: this adorable purse is absolutely one I snapped up before sharing with ya'll! I know you'll feel me when you see how many color options are available and the price point. I love a fun, trendy statement bag that isn't a huge investment!

7. Metallic Slides: these slides are under $10! The come in great color combos from metallic to animal print and a fabulous neutral.

8. Sunglasses: another item I snapped up before sharing with the world, I love the clear frames on these sunnies.

9. Striped Blanket: Turkish Towels are my fave to keep on hand - they are lightweight, dry quickly and fold up nice and small.

10. Dry Shampoo: because after wrangling us all in one hotel bathroom, sometimes dry shampoo is as much as I can handle for myself....

11. Shark Rash Guard: mostly I think this is adorable but also, I have blondes who will actually burn on their fair little scalps, so I love a hooded swim shirt!

12. Flamingo Float: I mean, why not?! It's vacation, right!

13. Circle Straw Tote: I own this in navy! I am obsessed with how much it holds, the cross
body and tote straps and the shape. I carried my bag all last summer and she's still holding strong!

14. Striped One Piece: this little number wasn't available when I did my Walmart one piece shopping, but she is certainly making her way to my house as we speak!

15. Melt In Sunscreen: my fave sunscreen line for myself, the melt in version is easy to rub in, is water resistant, good for all skin types and SPF 50.

16. Pineapple Tote: water resistant and big enough to tote it all, go ahead and add this pineapple bag to cart!

17. Mineral Sunscreen: If mineral sunscreen is your preference, this is another that I keep in my bag at all times. This version is tinted, ultra light, SPF 50 and mineral based.

18. Pool Rings: we own these and keep them in our pool bag at all times. It's a great way to make friends and to entertain my kids when they somehow find themselves bored on vacay.

19. Hot Pink Slides: perfect to toss on around the pool, I am digging this hot pink color

20. Swim Trunks: hello, husband! How fun is this lobster print??

21. Canvas Sneakers: I love how this style of shoe looks with shorts and a button down so my husband is getting the navy pair (but check out all of the color options!)

22. Hair Ties: my go to hair ties that won't tangle in my hair - did you know that if they stretch out, you can place them in hot water and they'll shrink back to their original size??

23. Girls Rash Guard Two Piece: with potty training in mind, we are rocking two piece swimwear all Spring Break long
