In just a few days, our family is heading off on a Disney cruise with the Shull family.  The countdown is ON!  I've been preparing by stocking up on summer and beach essentials!  I thought I'd share a few of our goodies to help you guys get ready for Spring Break and summer as well.  :)

I'm packing a lot of swim suits and dinner clothes, so the first thing I snagged was this...

I've already shared this tankini with you, but I'm sharing it again.  It's that good!  For those days, you don't want to let it all hang out, this is the perfect suit.  It's very sporty and cute!  I have a pair of old Target bottoms that I'm gonna mix and match. :)

I picked up this little black dress last week and love it!  I can dress it up or dress it down depending on the occasion and think I will wear it a ton.  It looks a little baggy in this picture, but it was very form fitting when I tried it on.  If you have a dressy event, you should try this dress!

This dress in person is a really pretty bright coral.  The picture doesn't do the color justice.  I think it's the perfect mix between a spring Easter church dress and a summer beach dress.  It can be both!  And it comes in a pretty turquoise also.

Look how cute these leopard shorts are!!  I snagged these a few weeks ago and LOVE them!  I think I'll wear them all the time because #leopardisaneutral.  :)

I stumbled across this romper from Altar'd State that just screams, "BEACH!!" to me.

I splurged on a new pair of Tory Burch Miller Sandals.  I got a gold pair last year and wore them a TON!  This year I knew the price would definitely be worth it, so I got a pair in "Vintage Vachetta Leather".

The kiddos got a few new goodies as well...
I found a couple cute suits for Ebby Lee at Garnet Hill.  Love the ruffle detailing on this one.

And everyone got some new Natives for the vacation!  Bowen got a green, but the green is MIA!

They all got stocked up on new pajamas and right now Gymboree is 40% off everything!  (Unless it ended yesterday, but fingers crossed.)

I grabbed a couple of these shorts for $5 each for Ebby Lee.

And this neon pink cover up was just too cute to pass up.

I'm a sucker for colored boy shorts, so we got the boys a couple new pairs.  They'll be wearing them with comfy shirts.  Let me just say that boy clothes are so easy.  Amen, Mama Friends??  

After a quick run to Target we'll be set for Spring Break!  We can't wait!

I hope you found a thing or two to get you SPRING BREAK INSPIRED as well!  Here's to setting sail into Spring Break!!  Don't forget to enter to win the GIVEAWAY on Instagram!  Good luck, girls!!  XOXO

So pumped for your giveaway!!! LOVE. CRUISES. My husband and I are flying to San Juan on Friday and taking a Southern Caribbean cruise! Ha I so desperately want to go on this vacation that I put our passports in the basement last week when we had insane weather and tornado warnings. And yet...we stayed upstairs and continued watching Netflix until the power went out! #we'resmart #notgonnamissmyvacation

Yay for the giveaway! And those leopard shorts are the best. And the miller sandals...I have 3 pair, have had them for a few years and though pricey, definitely worth it! Have a great day !

I ordered that swimsuit when you posted about it last week and I love it!! Swimsuits are hard to shop for and I just knew it was not going to work and I'd be returning it. Thanks for sharing it!!

Have a great time!! I need those leopard shorts in my life! I have last years pair, that were white and navy blue spotted! I need to get these for this year!!

Lisa said...

We've been on several Disney cruises, you will have a great time!
It's probably wrong to say this but one of the best parts is the alone time I get with my husband, especially lounging in the sun in the peace of the adult pool areas! My kids are a bit older than yours, but they are always happy and busy and making friends; we had to make a rule that they must meet us for dinner every night! I really hope you have a fun experience!
