We’re halfway through the month of March, which means the time for spring getaways is in full swing. Whether you have a designated spring break coming up or you’re just looking to get out of town for a long weekend, we’re packing our bags (and our shopping carts) with a few must-haves for a spring vacation. Not only that, but our brand new collab with Splendid happened to come at the perfect time to fill up our suitcases! We went to work putting together our spring getaway packing list as soon as we could, and we can’t wait to share it with you. But we’ve done enough talking… Skip ahead to get in a warm-weather state of mind and get a jump start on that spring getaway with our packing ideas for him AND her—you know we’ll be doing the same! (P.S. Have you taken a peek at the entire Splendid x Gray Malin collection yet? These picks below are some of our faves, but there’s lots more where this came from…)
Whether you’re heading to the beach or just to see family, no suitcase is complete without a pair of comfy joggers. These ones are perfect for those chilly nights by the water.
Worn as a cover-up or on its own, we’re majorly obsessed with this dress. It’s the most flattering length for spring, and that Playa Stripe pattern will keep you coming back to this outfit.
Spring getaway or not, this iPhone case NEEDS to be in your rotation. The pastel umbrellas are perfectly suited for spring.
While the temps are heating up, we aren’t quite into summer yet, which means a lightweight sweater is always welcome for those hours of the day when the chill rolls in. This easy crewneck sweater is our favorite layered over a tee or a swimsuit.
5. Seaside Stripe Dress, $128
Spring vacations are all about easy-to-wear pieces, just like this T-shirt dress. Plus, the classic navy and white stripe pattern is only made better by that cute pop of color around the neck.
You didn’t think we’d leave a swimsuit off of our list, did you? There are plenty of swoon-worthy bathing suits to choose from in this collection, but this beach print one piece is our go-to.
…and of course, you can’t have a swimsuit without an easy pair of shorts to throw over the top when you’re heading to and from the beach! Trust us when we say that this pair is unbelievably soft and comfy.
A classic button-up is our favorite way to complete a laidback, yet put-together look for brunch and dinners. Pair it with a white mini skirt, pair of shorts, or jeans, tie a knot in the front, and you’re done!
Our leather pouches have so many uses, but they’re so cute we can’t help but carry them everywhere—especially on vacay.
Last, but not least, top your luggage with an inspiring luggage tag like this one. It will have you feeling like you’re off the grid before you even step off the plane.
Let’s be honest, when it comes to a spring vacation, you can never have too many pairs of shorts. If you look closely, this pair has embroidered red and white striped umbrellas. Sold!
You can never go wrong layering a neutral sweater over a tee or button-up for a night out, and this easy stripe keeps things feeling casual.
Just ask Gray—no wardrobe is complete without a good polo! This one may look like one of your “basics” from afar, but the raglan stripe sleeves and stripe detail under the collar will make it one of the more interesting pieces in your closet.
Every guy should have a good button-up in his arsenal, and between the chambray and embroidered details, this one is the perfect balance of dressy and casual.
Even if you’re strictly a T-shirt and jeans kind of guy, you’ll be glad to have this hoodie in your closet. It’s basic enough to wear on the regular, but the stripe pattern is far from boring.
Want to feel like you’re far away every time you pick up your phone? Leave it to this Lake Como iPhone case…
You can’t get away without actually getting there first, which makes this luggage tag equally stylish and functional.
In our opinion, spring getaways are the perfect opportunity to gather with friends and family for a little friendly competition. Whether you’re a poker buff or a master at gin rummy, you’ll be glad you threw these playing cards in your suitcase.
Like your favorite white tee, but better. Need we say more?
If you’re as in love with this stripe print as we are, then why not pick up the hoodie AND the matching shorts? Whether you wear them as a set or separately, these are the perfect shorts for lounging—which we all know is what spring vacays are really for.
Where are you headed for your spring getaway?
