Spring Break Essentials Under $50

Spring Break is right around the corner, and I can't wait!  Since Wyatt is still under a year old and I'm a little nervous about traveling with him, we are just driving to Great Wolf Lodge for a few days.  It's such a chill place to take the kids for a few really relaxing days.  They have an amazing indoor waterpark (complete with a baby pool and slides for all ages, even my teenage stepchildren!), outdoor pool, several restaurants, mini golf, an ice cream and pizza shop (that delivers to the pool), and an arcade.  If you have kids, you should check it out for sure.  The one we go to is right down the street from Kings Island amusement park, so you can easily do that during the day if you visit in the summer.
 
Ok, enough about me.  Let's talk about these gorgeous pieces that are all UNDER $50.  Yup, you heard me.  I love looking at all the other fashion blogs out there, but I'm always so bummed when I click on an item and see that it's a $400 swimsuit or something ridiculous like that.  I know that's not realistic for most of us - but we can keep dreaming!
 
These gladiators are a must-have for this spring and summer.  I screwed up a bit in the picture above .. those are actually the Rebecca Minkoff gladiators that I'm in love with, which are $125 - but the Target version is almost exactly the same, and they are $33!  You all know the off-the-shoulder top is another trend that's going to be hot this summer, and this one is only $10!
 
And of course you need a good read for the pool or beach.  I read quite a bit, and this one is on my to-read list.  I'm cheap and have been on the library's waiting list, and there are like 96 people before me ... so I'm still waiting.  I know, I should just pay the $10 and be done with it.  Any other readers out there?  If so I'd love to be connect with you on Goodreads.  I love to see what other people are reading!
 
The St. Tropez self tanner is one of my favorites to give you a little color for those first few days you wear your swimsuit when you'd otherwise be pasty pale white (if you're like me!).  There are tons of self tanning options out there, so find one that works for you.  Now - this suit, I'm obsessed!  I tried it on at Target the other day and it fit perfectly and is so flattering.  I wanted something sexy but that still covered my post-baby stomach that I'm not quite ready to bare in a bikini.  I also love this one.
 
Thanks for stopping by ladies!  Anyone have spring break plans?  I'd love to hear them in the comments!
