Roadtrip Guest Post: Katherine from Of Corgis & Cocktails

Here is the awesome Katherine talking about something dear to my heart, travel fashion!

How To Dress For a Road Trip

Hi, I'm Katherine, and I am a fellow central Pennsylvania dweller. I blog at Of Corgis & Cocktails where you'll find me dressing up myself, my dog, and making a lot of really yummy food. I also travel a lot, some would argue too much, but I would argue it's also quite a lot of fun. I recently moved from my hometown and with my husband in Florida, and well, I have a lot of friends and family to visit. I take a lot of road trips, most often the 500 mile 7 hour drive back to Cincinnati after I get off work, and here are some tips on how to dress for long drives.

How To Dress For a Road Trip

one.  comfortable, flat shoes.
I'm a fan of sandals, moccasins, and just ballet flats. Something that is easy to slip on and off if you are in the passenger seat. Something that flexes when you have to press the gas pedal for a few hours on end.

two. a wrappable scarf
Instead of a coat or sweater which will be nearly impossible to take off while driving, I suggest a large pashmina or scarf to wrap around your shoulders. If you get warm, it is a cinch to pull off and put back on.

three. an easy dress
A pull over the head type of dress, be it a jersey knit or something else easy going, is the perfect thing for traveling. I wear them on planes, cars, where ever. They allow me to curl up and always feel comfortable.

four. easily accessible sunglasses.
A good pair of sunglasses kept somewhere where you can get them (not buried in your purse!) are essential.

five. a big bag.
I've tried many things for road trips. Small purses. Average purses. And a larger bag that can fit a variety of things works best. I keep mine in the back seat and essential things I pull out of it and put in between by seat and the passenger seat.

To end this, here are a few of my favorite road trip songs to help you on your next big drive.

  5. Great tips Katherine! -Especially the jersey cotton. I always make sure when I drive anywhere more than just an hour that I have something comfy and stretchy on. And also - I've never met anyone before who knows who Art Brut are! Awesome.

    Such a great post. I have gotten very good with placing my cooler of food and bags with snacks within arms reach!!!! You really gotta plan everything out.
