Summer has officially started and there's no better time to round up your squad and get away from it all for the weekend. Load up the car with your best friends and leave the stress and drama at home! As much fun as the getaway can be, my least favorite part is choosing what to pack. So before you hit the road, check out these tried and true accessories for your best trip yet.
This XL getaway bag from tanneicasey handmade is a great bag to take when you want to spend the day with the girls at the shore or the park. It will fit 2-3 beach towels or a big picnic blanket. If the weekend calls for wine tasting, this is definitely your go-to for stashing all those new bottles you're going home with.
The Handloom has a ton of wonderful designs, but my favorite is the Kimono Robe. It's the perfect wrap to wear poolside or on a chilly morning enjoying coffee on the patio. The best part is it's machine washable - which is definitely what I'm looking for when I think of low-maintenance travel essentials.
Road Trip Snacks - $34
Don't settle for the dingy side-of-the-road pit stops for snacks when you're heading out on a roadtrip with the crew. SnackBOX has a ton of different options that give you a little salty and a little sweet. best of all is that the box has vegan and gluten-free options in most boxes, so there's a little something for everyone. You can find a lot of options on Amazon with free 2-day Prime shipping (for those last-minute planners like myself).
Love Yo Self Pins - $10/each
For a heartfelt souvenir that's useful and doesn't take up much bag room, try out these custom wood pins from River City Sass. Each piece is designed, created, and finished by hand in the heart of California. Plus, they look super cute on scarves, hats, bags, and lapels.
If you're looking for something super extra special, River City Sass will even whip up customized pins for you and the squad with your words or images.
Handmade items are having a moment right now, and I love it.
Lotion Bar with Bug Repellent - $6
No one wants enormous, itchy mosquito welts all over their body when they're trying to look cute in their summer gear. This lotion bar from SeedGeeks is straight up MAGIC for two reasons:
1. It smells so amazing that you'll want to use it even after Summer is over
2. The bar is 100% natural ingredients including some really lovely essential oils to keep the bugs at bay.
Buy one for you and your girlfriends - they last and are a great buy.
