Summer Packing Guide: Road Trip

If I had the extra time and resources, I would spend my summer on long meandering road trip. The entire endeavor is totally impractical yet incredibly enticing—hitting the open highway with no actual itinerary is bound to go wrong in the most interesting ways.

Although the beauty of Kerouac-style travel comes by not planning, I'd still do a little prep-work in the packing department. Click through the slideshow below to see what I'm going to (eventually!) bring on my cross-continental adventure:

Laundry will be limited, so no white T-shirts.

file

Sneakers are must, so I'm picking cute ones.

file

Cozier than driving in skinny jeans.

file

An summerweight jacket for chilly nights and light showers.

file

When I hit the Southwest states, I'll lop off the legs.

file

Sunsets are for seeing, not squinting.

file

Most things can stay in the trunk, but this is for motel stops.

file

Accessories I wear every single day won't get lost or stolen.

file

It's better to bring too many.
