Road Trip Season

‘Tis the season of the road trip, and you know Mr. Lovely and I are fans of hopping in our car and taking off on an adventure! When we head out, we load an iPad with movies and music, bring our camera gear, and always stock up on water and snacks. But to me, the most important thing is being comfy for the long haul. These are a few of the things I’m spying for our next big adventure, along with some of my tried-and-true products.



Dress. Sunnies. Bag. Toms. Boots. Dry Shampoo. Lip Balm. Sunblock.

I love wearing dresses on road trips because they’re so comfy! I usually have a couple of pairs of shoes just in case (truth be told, I just caved and ordered a pair of those Toms!). Can’t leave the house without sunnies, and all of my goodies always go into a big ol’ tote bag. These days I’m rocking this one from Rugby, but I’ve been lusting after that leather one forever now. Someday…

I also find that a few key products keep me so much more comfy while I’m driving! My lips always get chapped, so I usually have some lip balm with SPF (I love this one from Fresh because it has a little tint to it). I keep dry shampoo in my bag for hair freshening emergencies (I mean, right?), and you always always always gotta wear sunblock. Oooh, those UV rays can be nasty when you’re driving, and you don’t even notice it. I tend to wear baby sunblock because it has really high SPF and it’s pretty gentle on my (problem/sensitive/annoying) skin.

So those are my essentials! What about you? What keeps you comfy while you’re on a road trip adventure? xoxo

  1. I’m loving the dress and the bag! I’ve had my eyes on those Toms for awhile now… I want a pair so bad!

  2. I’ve been looking for the perfect summer dress and i love that one and that leather tote!! I’ve also wanted those exact crochet TOMS but haven’t purchased for some unknown reason.

    My must haves are Chapstick, sunblock, sunnies and water. Can’t wait for it to get just a bit warmer here so I can make mini road trips to the beach!!

    Love your style!


  3. I have a pair of pants I call my old faithfuls that I love to travel in. They are from old navy, and are tearing at the cuffs, but I heart them so. All I really need are some good snacks, and some very good tunes. The right music can make your road trip awesome and memorable at the same time!

  4. You pretty much have shown all of my road trip essentials, if it’s my turn to drive a comfy pair of shoes is a must. The most important road trip esssential I think is road mix, a selection of great songs to drive into the sun with.

  5. Never thought of using baby sunblock! Every summer I feel like I’m looking for a sunscreen that won’t irritate my face. Best luck so far is actually Trader Joes brand. I’ll definitely be giving the baby stuff a shot though.

    I like to be comfy in the car– like cotton or linen shorts and a tank top. And whatever shoes I’m wearing need to be able to be removed and put back on quickly. I’m a barefoot-in-the-car kind of girl.

  6. I’ve heard a few good things about this “Fresh” lip balm… Do you love it?
    What about the color? I am hesitant to buy because I worry I’ll purchase the wrong color :/
    What’s your advice?
