Travel essentials for the road

Travel essentials for the road - Indie Suns

Hello everybody! I’m sorry for the long hiatus but it was much needed and now I’m back with a lot of new content to share with all of you. In a couple of days I will be hitting the road for a family trip and I wanted to share my essentials.

I’m really used to traveling by car or bus so I can say I have learned a thing or two over the years. First thing you should keep in mind is to ALWAYS take a jacket with you, it doesn’t matter if you’re traveling to the beach or a place with really hot weather, you never know when you’re going to get a little chilly and it can totally double up as a pillow if you fold it 🙂

Jeans and a cute shirt or blouse are my go to when traveling. You want to keep it comfortable but also cute, so it’s the perfect combination.

As for shoes, sneakers are my all time favorites. They’re super comfortable, so your feet will never hurt, especially if you’re in a 8 hour car ride. I know heels are cute but I really would not recommend any kind of platform shoe for traveling.

Take a backpack as a carry on for all your necessities during the ride. I love to take backpacks instead of purses because they distribute the weight evenly, so it won’t hurt your back.

Last, but not least, we can’t forget about entertainment for those hours on the road. I’m a big fan of Spotify and creating my own playlists, so I always have music ready. I also really like to take a book with me, trips are great moments to catch up on your reading list, I’m currently loving “All the Light we cannot see” by Anthony Doerr.

    I always try and bring a jacket or something similar with me as well because I get so damn cold, even in summer! Love those Dior sunglasses as well, the only thing I’d add to this list would probably be snacks 😉

      I agree with you Julia, snacks are a must! Specially for me, I always get so hungry 🙂

    Jacket is a must for sure! It can get quite cold and you can use it as a blanket and as a pillow as you said 🙂 Also, I love to bring snacks (like who doesn’t?) and good playlist 🙂

      I always get so cold! Even if it’s warm outside the AC always makes me cold! Definitely snacks are a must! Thank you so much for reading lovely Leta!
