Spring is almost here, I’m sure of it. Despite the chilly temperatures, now is the time to prepare for warmer weather. As we all know, here in New England, it can go from freezing to scorching in a matter of days. Plus with Floralia and other end-of-the-year festivities right around the corner, you’ll need these staples on hand to keep cool in the heat at the drop of a hat:
Speaking of hats… whether watching a lacrosse game or sitting through Commencement (fingers crossed for a nice day!), you’ll want a wide brim hat to keep the sun out of your eyes.

Keep a powder sunscreen like bareMinerals SPF 30 in your bookbag at all times in case a professor decides to hold class outside. Apply it right over your makeup without worrying about smudging or a greasy face.

An inexpensive sun dress is a must-have for every spring wardrobe. For only $39, this Rags to Riches frock is the perfect go-to for a long day of class followed by, say, dinner at Captain Scott’s.

Invest in a pair of low heel sandals. I have these bad boys and wear them on practically every occasion throughout the spring/summer (and even into the fall).

You should always have a bathing suit with you here at Conn. I know it sounds crazy, but for all we know it will be 80 degrees out next week and we’ll find ourselves right back where we started the school year, catching some rays on the green (or better yet, at Ocean Beach!). Hope to see you there.
