Travel Essentials: What to Wear

IMG_9105 edit

Last week you  saw what I think are a few essentials to never embark on a road trip without. Today I wanted to show you a sample outfit of what I wear when traveling. (I warned you about seeing more of this top!)

I’m not a sweatpants girl. I very rarely wear them out in public. And even when spending several hours in the car it is not likely that I would wear sweatpants. But, I do like to wear easy layers.

I typically opt for an open sweater, just in case it is my driving shift I must shimmy out of my sweater due to being on the verge of overheating. Not recommended. But occasionally necessary. I also told you how I pick my chunkiest scarf to double as a neck pillow. I absolutely love this scarf!

I also like to wear shoes that I can slip on and off quite easily. I like to sit with my legs up. In the winter, wet outside means wet shoes. Sitting crossed legged with wet shoes means wet bottom. No one likes a wet bottom.

    I’m with you on every last bit. But I usually bring something with a hood so I can sleep. I hate sitting next to strangers on a plane and knowing they are watching me turn into a drooling blob.

    Scarves usually do the trick though too. Makes me feel more classy like a 50’s girl driving in a convertible.
