Summer Road Trip Essentials

There are tons of things to love about summer, but if you’re anything like me then vacations sit on the top of the list.

While  jet-setting to exotic hot spots is super dreamy, there’s something All-American special about a simple road trip. 

A long car ride with the windows down, music blasting and shades on. Taking in the scenes and stopping at random, with no real plans except an end destination.  Diners, truckstops, ghost towns and retro-chic motor-lodges are the stuff America was made of. Sometimes its more about the journey than the destination.

Here is a peek at my summer road trip essentials:


ONE: I like being  comfortable in the car, but I don’t want to look like a hobo when I stop for delicious diner pie or a restroom break.  These witty, loose, easy fit tees from  Pebby Forevee are the perfect road trip companion.  Each shirt is made by hand from 100% preshrunk cotton.

TWO: What’s a road trip without cowboy boots?  I am IN LOVE with this slouch boots from Durango Boots. The perfect marriage of old west whimsy and on trend style.

THREE: Gotta have snacks!  Haribo Cola gummies are classic.

FOUR: Keep the sun out while you look cool in the ultimate road trip shades, aviators from Warby Parker.

FIVE: Tunes.  A trip through the Old West calls for some strummin’ from the King of Western Swing, Bob Willis and his Texas Playboys.

SIX: Hydrate!  I like to take refillable water bottles to conserve on trash. You all know how I love a good slogan and this bottle from Izola is ideal for any adventure.

SEVEN: Blanket.  Whether you get chilly in the car or want to stop for a spontaneous nap, you’ll do it in style with this easy to tote leather blanket carrier from Pendleton.  Classic Americana.

EIGHT: Backpack.  Keep your essentials organized while keeping you hands free to snap photos.  I love the Old West feel of this pony tassel beauty from TOPSHOP.

NINE: Take care of your skin.  The desert air can be killer on your complexion.  This kit from my favorite skincare company Air Repair has everything you need. Complexion Boosting Moisturizer, Super-Hydrating eye Cream, Soothing Facial Cleansing Milk, Complexion Quenching Facial Mist (I love to keep this in the cooler and then give myself a spritz at rest stops- it’s heaven) and of course Air Repair’s rediculously good all purpose Rescue Balm.
