When I think about Spring, a never-ending list of pros pops into my head. Everyone is happier, the weather is warmer, parties and BBQs are planned, the promise of Summer is just around the corner, and, most importantly, the clothing is always exciting. Spontaneity fills the air, and at any moment, a sunshine-filled adventure presents itself. To make sure I am prepared for anything, I apply sunscreen and light makeup and put on Secret Destinations' Brazil Rainforest Mint Deodorant [2] daily. I also keep these six Spring must haves in rotation for the epic springtime days ahead.

An Oversize Tote

During the Spring and Summer months, I'm constantly on the go, so I make sure I have everything in tow in the oversize tote. Inside are usually all the essentials to keep me going all day: more sunscreen, a beach towel, and a bikini (just in case! You never know . . . ).


It's the most classic print that goes with just about any sunshine-related activity and pairs all too well with a handful of staples.

Crisp Whites

I love complementing my springtime tan with white sundresses and tops. There's something so sweet and simple about a breezy, wispy number.


There's hardly a week that goes by that I don't reach for denim in some way, shape, or form. From chambray shirts and dresses to the perfect pair of jeans or cutoffs, the timeless material is the season's number one must have. Style tip: when going for a denim-on-denim look, shoot for a lighter shade on top.


Mixing your athletic shoes with everyday streetwear is not only a fun way of changing things up but also lends itself to active adventures. Sailing, biking, exploring, and traveling are a few ways I'm playing around with my sneaker look.

Statement Jewelry

For a season that calls for all levels of dressing from weddings and parties to beach days and picnics, accessorizing is one way to get creative. A simple dress can be worn multiple ways with a little help from the right shoes and jewelry. I love throwing on a statement necklace on top of a more basic dress to get a fancier look.
