Are you doing anything special for the Labor Day holiday? Sending out the summer with a bang?
I'm planning on taking a road trip in a convertible down Highway 1 to LA with this gal and two other ladies. We've all agreed that we'll have no set agenda...just stop where we see something gorgeous, and enjoy the journey.
After months of busy busy busy, plan plan plan, my soul needs a trip like this.
Of course, that doesn't mean I haven't been thinking about the perfect things to wear and pack.
basic tank and stretchy pants.
Sunglasses, a hat, sunscreen, and lip balm to keep the sun at bay, because let's face it...I just hit 30 and there will be zero wrinkles allowed from this point further.
I'm throwing in a Turkish towel like this one - it makes a perfect beach towel, picnic blanket, or gives extra warmth should it get windy along the drive.
No road trip is complete without snacks...I try to bring along something a little more healthy than the average gas station fare. And while I can't read in the car without feeling a little woozy (hi, I'm still a child) I'm bringing along my Kindle for a little beach reading.
And don't you dare try to bring a giant suitcase on a road trip. Keep it easy in the most perfect weekender bag I've found.
Have you been on a road trip before? What are your essentials?
