I love going on road trips but hate how frumpy I feel while driving sometimes. The key is to dress in a cute and casual way that does well in the car. This works for road trips, busy days of errands, or days you just don’t feel like you can function at full speed.
Yes, these are the amazing leggings I wrote about this last Fall HERE. I have worn them with so many different outfits I can’t count. Lately, I have been wearing them dressed down and I am obsessed with the look. It’s cute and casual! PS these leggings are warm for the Winter too.
Why am I wearing this look on a road trip? It’s comfortable. Pretty much sums it up! It’s easy to keep clean, semi wrinkle free, and easy to layer with. I get overly warm in the car easily which means I get car sick. I like to have an outfit on that I can layer a coat over when I get out of the car.
Why this outfit works for a day running errands? It doesn’t wrinkle as you get in and out of your car or while you are driving. It drives me insane when I am going all over the place during a day of running errands, if get out of the car and am covered in wrinkles, it makes me feel unkempt. Wearing an outfit that doesn’t wrinkle is essential for me on my errand days.
Why this outfit works for days you can’t function? Easy, SO easy to put together. I put this outfit together with different variables. I will change out the top, the vest, and the hat for different looks. Basically, I can put this outfit together in the dark and I still look cute! Can you say, “winning”?!
As I was getting ready for this road trip, I thought I would share a few of my road trip essentials! While Jason and I lived in Socal, we drove to Oregon many times and a trip to San Francisco. I developed a road trip essential list that gets me through these trips! We personally love road trips together, I soak up all that quality time.
Cooler: put drinks, waters, and snacks that need to be chilled.
Garbage Bag: I always put a couple in the front seat, whenever we make a stop, we throw that grocery bag out and start a new one. It keeps your car clean.
Clorox Wipes: What for? Spills, food, wiping down the door from sticky fingers, etc.
Napkins: I always have these in my glove compartment but I put extra when we are traveling.
Snacks: We try and have a full meal on a pit stop but staying awake in the car is a true art form, one I have not quite mastered which is why Jason drives! I always have snacks that can be put into small baggies during the trip. For example: chips, pretzels, fruit slices, carrots and hummus, and gummy candy!
Music: Always have a good Pandora station to listen to, it saves you when there is nothing on the radio!
Blanket: Just in case there are two opinions of what the temperature should be in the car!
Something fun: We moved back to Oregon from SoCal in April of last year. Going 50 mph for 22 hours was a LONG trip. I introduced Jason to Mad Libs and this had us busting up for hours.
Currently, we’re driving to Montana, if you are wanting to see pretty snow, check out my IG stories!
