fashion friday: road trippin’

luke, the nugget and i will be leaving later this afternoon to head back down to georgia – this time for vacation, on tybee island.

we’ve got another long drive ahead of us, but at this point, we’re road trip professionals.

what? that’s a thing.

so here’s a look at what i like to wear on long treks down winding roads.


any kind of stretchy, flowy, cotton, comfy, jersey dress or skirt. this should require no explanation, but i will tell you that i wore the striped version of number 4 on our way home from georgia a couple of weeks ago and it felt like i was in my jammies. except i didn’t look like i was. that, 2 consecutive rounds of the alphabet game, and lots of great conversation {and music} got me through.


of course, you could always go the way of the tee and jeans.

the great thing about the recent-ish trend of colored pants is that the old tee and jeans gets a bit of a makeover. why not pair these {in red} with number one for a bit of a color shock? or these {in pink} with number 4? or these {swoon} with number 5?

the possibilities are endless!

do you have a standard but stylish uniform for the road? do share!

    I am so bad with skirts. Like where do you put them on your waist so I don’t look like I don’t have one and so that my belly doesn’t roll over the top. I bought one this week though so I guess I’ll be figuring it out!

      that’s actually a good question – i’m pretty high-waisted so when i wear my skirts right at my waist, i look a little goofy. even still it’s best to wear them at the smallest part of your waist so that you’re accentuating your feminine shape. they look best paired with a belt this way. you can also wear them right on your hips {an option i utilize frequently}. i usually do this with maxi skirts, and wear a long tank with it. belt optional.

    I love a good road trip! Your cotton skirt outfit sounds perfect to keep you comfy and stylish for all those truck stops along the way! LOL!
