Top 10 Road Trip Essentials
Planning to hit the road and set out on a journey this summer? Us too! Whether your trip takes you 2 hours or 24 hours, here are a few essentials to pack for your journey ahead.
1. Hair Accessories
Headbands and hair clips are a great way to ensure you have a good hair day even when the top’s down.
2. Jean Shorts
These are the perfect road trip staple because they will keep you cool and wrinkle-free for hours in the car.
3. Water Bottle
Hydration is so important, especially in the car. Don’t stress about having to make a couple extra restroom stops in the name of health!
4. Crease Release
If your packing style is shove-everything-within-arm’s-length-into-the-bag-and-go, this spray is for you! A little spritz makes wrinkles magically disappear.
5. Light Layers
Easy to pile on and peel off layers are necessary for adjusting to overzealous air conditioners and hot summer sun.
Spice up an otherwise simple outfit with a couple of necklaces. You’ll be ready to take on anything out on the road if you feel put-together rather than frumpy.
7. Comfy Shoes
You won’t know what kind of setbacks you might face on your trip. Pack a pair of comfy shoes in case—you know—the car breaks down and you have to push!
8. Big Ol’ Bag
Or two or three big bags. Make sure you have plenty of space for the things you’re bringing and anything else you might pick up along the way.
9. Small Purse
Keep the essentials (keys, wallet, lip gloss, etc.) in a bag that’s easy to stash by the front seat and grab when you make a snack stop.
For practical reasons, a pair sunnies is a MUST. Of course, for impractical reasons, bring additional pairs to fit any mood that may strike.
