Spring Break Essentials -- Carry-On for the Girls

We are now at T-weeks countdown around our house for spring break. And that means that the kids are daily trying to sneak the spring break clothes tucked away in their closest into their wardrobes. The only cure I've found to stop Cami from dashing out of the house in a winter coat and gladiator sandals is to have her help lay out the clothes she plans on packing and run through every wardrobe iteration. We try to pack light (well, I try to pack the kids' clothes light so I have room to stash my extra stuff in their bags), so we're aiming for a carry-on of clothes that will last a week.

Don't believe it? Check out the twenty-five outfits we've planned below. The first and last are planned travel outfits (the only way to travel with a fedora is to wear it. Trust me). The rest are options for everything in between ... with plenty of room to make up more. I think the key is to pick a solid set of basics, but that still have a little interest and detail. Mix in a group of interesting pieces based on just a few bright colors that work well together. And finish it off with a good set of swim, shoes, and accessory pieces. We just might be able to pull this off -- boys, stay tuned ....
