Road trips are awesome. Packing light is even more awesome. That's why it's important to have a few pieces that are multi-functional.
Sweater: A light sweater in a solid color can be thrown over anything when you're cool. This one is from Madewell.
Sunglasses: Garrett Leight is a new obsession. His frames are so classic and well made. I also love that Rich and I can share these. They look good on both of us!
Sandals: This road trip is across the southern border of the US, so sandals are a must. Everlane has been my go-to for all basics. Their backpack has been super useful as well with its laptop sleeve built in.
Shorts: A pair of soft comfy shorts lets me pretend I'm in my pjs all day. These ones are from Zara.
Netted Bag: This bag has been so useful. It seems tiny until you start piling stuff into it. It expands like woah. It's perfect for stopping at grocery stores along the road and grabbing some healthy snacks. We've been sticking to the classics: apples, bananas, & oranges. It was important to us not to be eating fast food the whole way, and apples especially have been great on the road.
Gadgets: (of course) I'm using my iPhone, iPad, and MacBook Pro to take photos, work, blog, etc. (thank you Apple) And Pencil from FiftyThree turns my iPad into a sketchbook!
An Inspiring Book: Being on the move is always inspiring, but having a great book to provoke even more deep thought is the best. I'm currently reading the Diary of Anais Nin.
