Road trip Necessities | The Essentials

In a week, Cody, myself, & one of his best friends will be heading on a road trip down the west coast! Our stops include: Seattle, Portland, Redwood National Forest, Napa Valley, & San Francisco.  I am so excited about completing a road trip because I have never actually been on a "real long road trip", the longest I have ever ridden in a car is like 5 hours.  So, this could be a struggle for me.

First Things First 
I will be the only girl on this awesome road trip, so my "primping time" will be around 30 minutes, tops.  To make my "primping time" easier for myself & for the guys, I plan on packing the essentials & basics.  I am challenging myself to pack all my essentials in a carry on suitcase, to re-wear outfits but with different ways, & to utilize my accessories in a fun way!

Pictured above are a few of the essentials that I plan on packing on our road trip.
1. Boyfriend Jeans - Oh YES, this is a definite yes.
2. Grey Tank/ T- Shirt - I plan on wearing these with yoga pants when we hike, & with a dark pair of skinny jeans for a night out on the town!
3. Leather Jacket - The perfect essential for any cold nights!

I am super pumped to keep everybody updated on our fun adventure, it begins soon & I will be posting pictures on Instagram, so don't forget to follow along!

My vacation is officially over, enter the sad faces now.  No more dressing cute every day, now I am back to the red t-shirts & the khaki pants. 

Cody, myself, & his parents went to the fun town of Coeur d' Alene, Idaho for the night.  It was a fun afternoon of walking along the lake, relaxing in the condo listening to the rain fall, & eating dinner at an Brazilian restaurant, which was delicious!! 

I just can't get over how beautiful it is in the Northwest!

For the weekend, we visited Leavenworth, Washington.  This small town is a German themed town & has the tastiest beer, delicious food, & the best views.  Plus, to make things even better, Cody's parents are in town visiting us & got to make the fun trip out to Leavenworth! We also got to meet up with Cody's uncle out there, so it was fun family trip!

sandal season





I don't have a ton to say for this post.  This is the definition of a very lazy basic outfit.  Cozy cardigan, boyfriend jeans, & a cute necklace to make it look some what .. ya know, cute.

Main point of this post is.. I can finally wear sandals!  My feet have never been happier & the weather is suppose to hit 70 degrees this week.  Let's just say I might have to go shopping for some shorts & a nice tan this week.

friday night outing

DSC00930 DSC00929 DSC00928 DSC00931

Last night, a bunch of our friends got together for a small going away dinner for another couple.  We ended up at Steelhead Bar & Grille, just a heads up, if anyone is in Spokane & is looking for a delicious restaurant with a great atmosphere, you should just head there.  Our group had a fabulous time, laughing, eating, & drinking.

I have been looking for the right time to wear this peplum top, since it's still chilly at night in Washington, I had to find the perfect jacket.  After browsing pinterest for ideas, I realized I had my Mamma's cheetah print cardigan that I borrowed from her.  Hello, perfect addiction to my top, & thank you Mamma.

If you are near your Target, head to their shoe department, these shoes should be on clearance for $25 bucks.  Plus these shoes are extremely comfy, which is a plus coming from a girl who hates wearing heels.

Last little bit, if you head over to Brina Box, they are having a huge deal.  When you spend $50 you get $10 off with SECRET10, spend $100 you get $25 off with SECRET25. PLUS you get a free gift with every purchase over $25.  They have the cutest jewelry, plus I got my fur vest from this website.  It's fast shipping & cute merchandise, so it's a win win!!!
