Road Trip Outfit | GIVEAWAY

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.



TOP | VEST | LEGGINGS | SHOES | HAT ($10!!)| HANDBAG

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!

The worst mocha ever but the best day.


 

 SWEATER: c/o Chicwish | JEANS: Paige | BOOTIES: BP (similar and on sale HERE!) | LIPS: Lipsense Blu Red
 
This was the WORST mocha ever but I sipped it proudly as my husband took me shopping for my birthday. This was huge for me, malls tend to be an environment that he doesn’t particularly like going into…such as most guys. We started our morning by buying coffees at Starbucks inside a Safeway on our way to the mall. First mistake. I took a sip and thought that it was super watery butI didn’t ask for them to remake it. Second mistake. I did, however, proudly sip the worst mocha ever because I loved that my husband was taking me shopping and making me feel so special. The worst coffee I have ever had was not going to ruin this amazing day.
 
Even with the counterfeit mocha in my hand, I felt so cute and comfortable in this look. I have been living in this sweater! Seriously, the color is so gorgeous! It’s a lightweight weave but still extremely warm. I have it front tucked to create a more flattering line on my body. I have worn it untucked as well but prefer it this way.
 
I loved this color with a pop of red. I actually like most colors with a pop of red but that’s besides that fact because this combo was dreamy. I kept the rest of my pieces neutral for a fresh look. Perfect for entering the Winter season where the sun isn’t shining as much. I let my outfits bring the color to my day!

Lace up details + BIG Giveaway.


 SWEATER: c/o Zaful| JEANS: Paige | HEELS: Valentino | HANDBAG: BCBG (from TJ Maxx!) | 
WATCH: c/o Timex | LIPS: Revlon Love Amor

I have loved the lace up trend but hadn’t found one that I felt was modest for my body type. This sweater has taken the cake and it comes in 3 other colors! I am in love. I have already worn it a couple times. One trick is to wear a nude colored cami under it so the lace up is modest but doesn’t draw attention away from the detail. 

Yes, white pants again. You won’t see me stopping this anytime soon! 

I loved the subtle neutral look with a pop of red! This is a great way to start getting ready for Christmas. I love wearing red lips in the Winter time. Something about them make your outfit seem so cheery! 

PS I am in love with this watch from Timex! Keep your eyes out, I am going to give one away!

I need all your thoughts and prayers tomorrow. After my blog post talking about my Walk with Mental Illness, I was asked to come speak in a counseling class at my alma mater. My nerves are getting the best of me. I want to be able to do my best to share my heart and story at this amazing opportunity! Thank you!

Now…it’s time for a fabulous giveaway! I’ve teamed up with an amazing group of bloggers to give YOU a chance to win: a $1000 Nordstrom Gift Card, just in time for the holidays!
