Have you been searching for the perfect winter road trip outfit? I’m sharing one of my favorites here plus a few tips to choosing a winter road trip outfit that works for you.
A couple of weeks ago my family and I packed our bags and headed to New Orleans for Dad 2.0. Dad 2.0 is the counterpart for Mom 2.0 which I went to last year for the first time. When I found out that their Dad conference would be in New Orleans this year, I knew we had to go. My husband’s been getting more into my blog and wanting to learn the ins and outs. What better way to help my husband learn about blogging than in a room full of Dad bloggers?
Once we found out that we were going, it was time to pack our bags. Packing was the easy part because we’ve been on tons of road trips before. We packed the morning of our trip because we were literally so exhausted. We ended up sleeping in because I pressed the snooze button one too many times but we were okay with that.
The trip from Orlando to New Orleans is about 10 hours so I knew I needed to wear something comfy for the trip. I’m really particular when it comes to picking a road trip outfit.
A road trip outfit has to be two things: loose and comfortable.
I don’t know about you but when we’re road tripping, I eat all the things so my outfit has to accommodate all the food that I’m going to eat on the way to our destination. Another reason why my outfit has to be loose and comfortable is because the last thing I want on bathroom breaks is taking off a million layers. For our trip I chose a simple dress which I’m obsessed with (I wore it here and here too). It’s so comfortable and I don’t have to worry about unbuttoning my pants when I eat too much. I paired it with over-the-knee boots because I knew it would be cold once we got to New Orleans.
If you’re searching for the perfect winter road trip outfit, here’s a few tips to get you started.
Tips for Picking the Perfect Winter Road Trip Outfit
- Choose something loose and comfortable.
- Think about the weather of your destination.
- Remember to layer. When you get hot you can always take things off. You can’t add layers if you don’t have them.
- Keep the accessories minimal.
- Wear shoes with sock that’ll keep your feet warm in the car.
- Bring a hair tie just in case.
