It's no secret we love a good road trip. Grab the keys and go. Could it be that simple? If only! Today we're sharing with road trip essentials. Of course we're no experts, but we do head out on the open road quite frequently and have learned a thing or two about what to keep in your backseat on a long trip. The fun - what you actually want to pack and the practical - what you should pack. Combine these and you're all set to hit the road and embark on your next adventure!

Denim Jacket // Grab a cute demin jacket and be prepared for cool weather or your partners love of blasting the car's a/c.
Spotify // Over CD's? Driving in the middle of nowhere with no radio channels working? Use Spotify on your smart phone and rock out!
Cereal Magazine // Bring your favorite magazine for those slow moments on your trip when you have the time to zone out and get lost in a good read.
Sunglasses // Sun in your eyes while driving = worst thing ever. Don't forget those sunnies!
Weekender Bag // With so many cute weekender bags now on the market, you can find the perfect one that can hold all your road trip essentials.
Comfortable Dress // Wearing comfortable clothes in the car is a must. Not only will it help you relax, but you'll look great and be ready for any unplanned photo opts!

Water Bottle // Don't forgot to stay hydrated - especially while driving through high elevations and warm weather.
Small Pillow // Take a nap while you're road trip partner is driving. A small pillow always helps us avoid a stiff neck.
Cash // Not at all exciting, but an essential none the less. Always carry cash so you're ready and can pay for anything.
Rosewater // A great way to stay fresh on the road! Give yourself a dabble (or spray depending on the bottle) when you get out of the car to explore.
Turkish Blanket // You never know when you'll find the perfect place to throw down a blanket and relax or have an impromptu picnic.
Portable Phone Charger // With all the apps out there, smart phone batteries don't last long. Always be prepared and never worry about a dead phone again.
