One of the greatest losses of adulthood is the lack of spring break. And as much as I’d like to take an Arrested Development-style approach to the “holiday,” work and responsibility beckons. I guess these articles and a frosty beverage or two will have to do. Happy adult spring break!
Growing up in the heyday of MTV’s Spring Break, led my middle school crew to dream about growing up and attending what we thought at the time were enviably cool parties in Daytona Beach or Panama City. Thankfully, by the time we were old enough, the wet T-shirt contests were long off the airwaves and we chose more chill vacations. But for all of us who missed out, The Cut tracked the booze-filled history of spring break.
The standard dress for many a tropical getaway is the Hawaiian shirt. From floral-covered button-downs to the more kitschier pink flamingo prints, these bold tops have become ubiquitous in tourism and travel. Collectors Weekly explores how the iconic style rose in popularity.
If you are so lucky to be heading south for spring break, or any vacation for that matter, have a great time. I’m not jealous at all. One tip for you: be on the lookout for any of these terrifying sea creatures, and try not to get eaten. Seriously though, not jealous.
